In Topic: Element 3D - network rendering

Yesterday, 07:21 PM

Crawlies are exactly what you might get when sending a render across a network of GPUs.  That's the bugger here. GPU from machine to machine can be pretty inconsistent.  And Element has no fallback CPU mode. 


I think, fundamentally, Element 3D is simply designed to be a down-and-dirty 3D rendering environment. I use it for basic shapes, slabs and every job that requires a jet fighter (which so far is zero).

In Topic: AE Timewarp -> Time Remap

16 December 2014 - 08:15 AM

If I understand this correctly, you should really just be able to take the "Speed" value from Timewarp and multiply by the current time. Basically, how fast you are going times how long you are traveling. 

spd = thisComp.layer("Timewarp").effect("Timewarp")("Speed")/100;

spd * time

Edit: Just noticed that you said "Speed RAMP". That's a different mess all together.  It might be possible, but this would be really complicated to accumulate the values while they change in value.


TL;DR: It's really hard.

Considering that RG is a greedy corporate blob these days, chances are good...



I don't really know who at Red Giant peed in your cheerios. It really couldn't be a more talented, hard-working and modest group of people that if you actually met in person, you'd probably like. I am sorry you feel this way. Nothing could be further from the truth.


So on that note, I'll be heading back to my yacht for the rest afternoon. I've got a meeting with CEO and we will be talking about what is the best Ferrari to buy.

I'm sure they'd rather add the ump-teenth ridiculous glow effect.



Stay classy, Mylenium.


Just the other day I tweeted (_ugh_) to Red Giant that a non-square grid generator would make a great addition to Universe. So if they do it - thank me  :D


"Ugh"? Are we like the friend that no one likes any more?  


We are currently adding to the vector drawing abilities of Universe, so this would be totally doable. If you have any further specs or requirements, shoot them to harry (at) redgiant.com


Also, I'll make sure to include 3 built-in glows for it, just for Mylenium.

Oops.. and obviously I changed it to 50% for testing, rather than the 25% it should be.
