  1. Just thinking about it lately, does anyone know thats involve in getting visa for states to work in motion graphic? I work in London currently, freelance. thought it might be a change of scene. graham(Irish).

    Was on a project and it got kinda hectic, so hence my panicked post. But I think it had something to do with changing the camera lens and focal distance. Also I was working using dynamic splines in cinema - which I'll never use again. just slowed the system down to a crawl. Also tried using the shadow catcher on transparency - 2hr a frame renders. So its all a learning curve! Graham

    Hi -I've opened a project in a pc from mac and the viewport is scaled in about 50%. Its affecting the camera render. simple I know, is there a button to reset viewport - frame all... Thanks
  5. I have been out of the industry for a while, doing other work. Part of the reason for this was the constant sitting. Thinking of re-entering and was wondering if anything has changed? Is standing now an option being introduced/ is it fully introduced as standard yet? Im in Uk. Graham
  6. Fracture object just seems to crash the machine, I'm trying to do it manually by selecting groups, but its awkward.
  7. Your a champ Sb, I'll dissect that tomorrow.Its night time here. All the best Graham
  8. Sb, much appreciated for your post and taking the time to that sample scene. I'll use it at some point down the line. But this is a polygonal Tree. http://www.turbosquid.com/3d-models/3ds-max-english-oak-tree/807438 The trunk and leaves are tow separate objects. Apologies, I should have been clearer.
  9. Hi all, I'm animating a tree transitioning from summer to winter. I'd like the leaves (1000's of) to slowly disappear individually - randomly. Is there a way to randomly have the transparency on some of them animate to 100% Thanks Graham
  10. What Pc Laptops would people recommend?
  11. I know, it is crazy expensive. But I enjoy working on the macs, like a good tool. Was prob just asking about the graphics card - and wether The AMD Radeon was necessary.
  12. I enjoy the mac interface a lot more. Choices I see are: 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz 16GB 1600MHz memory 256GB PCIe-based flash storage1 Intel Iris Pro Graphic 2.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz 16GB 1600MHz memory 512GB PCIe-based flash storage1 Intel Iris Pro Graphics AMD Radeon R9 M370X with 2GB Also.... 2.8GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 4.0GHz

    new laptop

    Hello - thinking of investing in a new macbook pro, 15" For cinema mostly, maya and a bit of Ae... Was just wondering what are the things to look out for on spec - processor, cores....? Graham
  14. Also, when I plug into the transparency channel with image same size, it maps incorrectly. Even when Uv mapped, the image doubles up when using a file in transparency channel.
  15. Yes I saw that plugin ,and was thinking of that. But is just a freebee for someone. I was thinking of plugging the colour into the transparency channel, with a layer of noise as well. Or should it be the reflectance channel?
