  1. Heres the deal, problem was solved a couple weeks ago. Heres how to reproduce the error... import at the wrong frame rate, precomp it... then reinterpret your frame rate of imported footage and reinterpret precomp frame rate, remove some bad frames cntrl shift d just to cut out the bad ones you dont want, then render... you will see the frames in your render and your composition window only when rendering, we did not see the removed frames when ram previewing or stepping thru. this is what the artist did who originally built this project, i had to figure this out and it took me a little while to reproduce the error... what should have been done was this when importing at wrong frame rate and precomping... you have to reimport your footage at correct frame rate, THEN FRESH PRECOMP... to be safe, we dumped all previous comps and started w fresh comps salvaging 90% of the work (effects etc) done... your world is now fresh and so clean. sorry about not getting back to you, it was the bosses call to hold off.
  2. Thank you sooo much for shedding some light on this, its been a plague that I have not had the unfortunate pleasure of dealing with. If youre not booked, let me know, we might need another AE artist on this. I have yet to try your suggestion, will do asap when i get thrown back on that monster. best, D.
  3. Hello all ! So I am working on a fairly big project 5K in after effects, and one thing we have noticed is that when finding a bad frame in one of the scenes, if the bad frame is cut from the sequence inside of after effects (either on the raw footage level inside its precomp or the precomped footage, both do this), the program still exports the bad frame when rendering. The composition window shows the frame as missing which is truely confusing, and we tested this on other machines in the building and have the same issue. The only way we found to correct this is to overlap 2 frames to force AE cc to not export the bad frame . I have never had this happen in AE ever. Anyone else? Thoughts comments? Footage has been checked, rechecked frame rates, imports, comp settings and so on. We threw everything and the kitchen sink at this and only found the above work around. thanks, The Enormous Donkey.

  5. Hello there, I am wondering what an entry level flame artist should charge w roughly 2.5 years of compositing experience in after effects would start out making or asking as a salary. I would be an assistant vsfx/flame artist with no node based compositing experience but a basic understanding of nodes. my day rate currently in ae is 350. let me know if you have an idea of what i should either ask for or expect to get offered. any info would be appreciated, thanks so much !

  7. thanks man.. lol easiest may not have been the best choice of wordage. I have someone on deck who said he`d help w conversion if necessary. The only thing Ive found that addresses this on pc is http://www.authorityfx.com/encoding-videos-in-prores-4444-on-windows/ which i have yet to try ... I`ll update if this works, supposedly free DL codec ...
  8. Hey ladies and gents, got a slight issue. I received apple prores files .ap4h and i need to export these out of windows 7 after effects 5.5 to apple prores 4444 (with alpha). what is the easiest way to do this... ? thanks Donk
  9. honestly, ive never seen a bug on the bottom left of footage before, nor have i had someone say that bottom left is where it is supposed to go, when less than two years previous they were handing out footage w their bug on bottom right. well lets say this shop isnt exactly buck, dk, psyop, logan, etc. it really is comedy i suppose sad tho, cause itll cause issues when cutting a reel with other logos
  10. Ive never seen a company bug in the bottom left hand corner. anyone else? i was told that the bugs always go in the bottom left hand corner, by the a company i used to work for... comments?
  11. that works for me... if people show keep me posted when it might get thrown together.
  12. Oh nice, yeah you are right up the street. santa monica and centinela here. kinda surprised there arent more mograph net folks showing up at the DMALA meetings. I`ll definitely be making as many meetings as possible, organized or tossed together.
  13. very cool, I am on the west side as well, santa monica, above the ten and west of the 405... im not booked right now so lots of free time on my hands at the moment and just pushing buttons at home for the mean time... anytime we can get some people together id definitely be down, no matter if its a festival or a few people.
  14. Are there LA mograph meets and greets in this town... or does this town just pull out your soul and stomp on it till all the love is gone? just moved here in march...i only see day light when i grocery shop, i am caveman with sausage links for fingers and looking to venture out and meet other wild mographers... who may or may not travel in wild packs rioting while designing and animating. time to grunt and make fire donkey
