    If the solid image originally a colored material?(for example the flat_color material is green) That will cause a greenish tint make sure your diffuse color is white. Or did I miss the point of your post more info would be great if I did.
  2. I always try for a 2nd set of eyes. Feedback is crucial but not gospel. Project briefs before? I assume this is standard practice, unless you have a relationship with your customer, in which they trust your creativity implicitly. And yet I'd still go for 2nd set of eyes.
  3. Hmm maybe plane space, from red giant software?

    I guess I dont understand your question. Element is used in After Effects, I use it in CS6.. rendering is pretty darn fast. but Im sure it all depends on your graphics card. If you're taking using raytrace in CS6. for me its dog slow. the new builtin 3D in CS6 from my understanding need/depends on CUDA nvidia card, which I dont have Ive got a ati 5770 in my mac. So Element = speedy.. Raytrace CS6 Slow.. for me at least.
  5. On a solid layer add a ramp effect. Make sure it's radial. Have a gradient from b/w starting in the middlle going outward. (you may have to flip-flop white to black) off hand I'm not sure about the shade order. I don't think you have to animate the gradient it can be still. However make sure you make that solid a precomp after you put the ramp on it. I think that should do it for you. Then select gradient in "flip order" and choose the precomp layer in "gradient layer". Now just scrub your transition completion from 0 to 100%. You can adjust the fall-off of the wipe with transition width. Hope that helps.
  6. No problem. It's rather straight forward just play with it & I think you'll see how things click. If you have anymore questions let me know.
  7. Oh so you mean just drag the project file in to media encoder? interesting
  8. You were very close.. I'd say go with card wipe, Instead. That will give you the effect you want and control over the col. and rows. There are some gotchas like making sure you have the right layer in your "back layer" I very much like this wipe. plus you can use a gradient to drive the animation if you wanted to. Actually I did a tutorial using cardwipe a few months back.. talking about using track mattes but I used the cardwipe as an example. https://vimeo.com/41633467

    I agree this is a game changer. surprisingly easy right off the top-layer. Then the deeper you dive it you can see how to compound complext animations with the models you ingest.. Its rather impressive.
  10. yep CStools has a preset. I'd go that route
  11. Ok so not up on my acronyms. What's AME? Honestly RenderQ has been great. Plus I did just find out this weekend. It does support c4d I haven't tried it maybe I'll test something tonight.
  12. what file format are you rendering to?
  13. along those line.. I still dont get jackson pollock's art.. even after the movie..
  14. 200+ views and 1 reply? Maybe like me, they couldnt reply for the longest time. I actually tried a few times. So the obvious question is you dont have the ability to re-render youre current content at a higher res? IIRC the ipad2 states they support 1280x720.. but I know, Ive played 1080i stuff on mine all the time. it depends on the app / player you are using. I've had decent results upconverting SD footage to HD using InstantHD from Red Giant.. its not the best solution. but its a place to start. Plus it better than just increasing the video size all willy-nilly.. hope that helps..
