  1. Mostly anything that is popular here... . bling bling and glossy galore...
  2. I need to shoot a talent holding water jug in front of a green screen. How does water key out on a green screen? Anyone with any experience doing this? Thanks.
  3. The film is about a mysterious old man who lives by himself in a small house. Part of the VO goes something like... "he does not have children, but he has toys...", " what does he do in there?" I think it was a thesis project of someone. Someone maybe from SCAD. I wish I had more info. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. yes exactly. do you know anything about this? we have the 9.0.2 update but still its acting strange. giving problems with render farm too. i.e. loosing links with assets/files in the middle of the ram preview and crying out "missing footage"
  5. CS4 has been crashing quite a bit at our studios as well. with something called a chenchilla error. Anyone had that?also have you guys tried to do trim comp? On my CS4 it truncates the layer randomly when i try trimming the timeline.
  6. not sure if this is already covered here but. AE does all the mathametical calculation for you in any filed that takes number. so in you want something to rotate 1/5 of 360 degrees you can just in put 360/5 in the value field.
  7. So You Are Saying All Clips From Network Need To Be Image Sequence And Audio Separate? I Am Having Similiar Issues But In My Case Links Are Getting Broken. I Guess I Could Try Using Image Sequence Rather Then .Mov And See If The Problem Goes Away. Thanks For The Info.
  8. Thanks guys for all your response. I actually do have my multi processor off. I have a 1 gb connection and a dual core mac. i will let you guys know if/when our IT guy is able to fix this. thanks all.
  9. We work off of a server and every so often the link to the files in after effect projects get broken and AE gives a missing file error. This generally happens in the middle of a ram preview or render. This only happens to files on server, files on my local hd never have issues. The files are always there in the same location, but AE seems to break the links with it every so often. Has this happed to anyone? We are all scratching our heads here.

    no, no motion blur, I keep myself away from that as much as possible. just bunch of lights and a large floor. My guess is once i use a pre-render for the floor i will know better how much of the delay is due the lights alone. Thanks all for your inputs.

    RANT!!!

    that was what i was trying to get an answer to. I have about 10 lights in a 30 sec animation. they are native in AE not from C4D

    Well i ram previewed in half res not full. but i did consider that option once the render started taking this long.

    i check it out in ram preview. things look the way i want. just did not think final render time would be so much different then ram preview time.

    RANT!!!

    Actually 4 hrs is just half way 4 more to go. i am not use to 8 hrs of rendering times. mine are mostly around 2 hrs. i used lights thinking it was a right way to do it, than using solids, masking etc. but guess not.

    I am pre-composing the layers in precomps but i am not pre-rendering. I guess i need to pre-render my floor and bring it in as a QT. Do many people here use lights in AE or large layers in 3d space?

    RANT!!!

    I have a bunch of lights and large floor layer. I got fooled by how quickly my ram preview went, that i thought rendering QT would be just as quick. but now after 4 hrs of render it looks like i shot myself on the foot by using so many lights and a real 3d layer for a floor. I guess i got to remove all my lights and use solids instead. AE WHY WON"T YOU RENDER 3D WELL?????? :angry:
  20. never mind i was doing a silly mistakes lots of long hrs seems like. i had 2 comps large and small with the same name. need sleepZZZZZ
  21. I have a 3d comp with floor, lights, nulls etc. What i want to do is have 2 duplicate pre comps sit on top of each other. sounds prity simple but some how it is messing up. I am duplicating say Precomp 'B' in my timeline window (so i have 2 B precomps), now i go to my project window and dupe comp B there, say B2. Now as soon as i replace my 2nd copy of precom 'B' with 'B2' in my timeline, the comp B2 becomes larger. I say it becomes larger becuase it has the same scale and position properties as the Comp B. but some how it becomes larger. non of the comps are parrented to anything or there are no adjustment layers. Has this happened to any one?
  22. Have you tried turning the multiprocessor off in preference? tha worked for me in making my ram previews render faster. multiprocessor in AE Mac seem to be buggy in CS3 atleast.
  23. we have used APM http://apmmusic.com/main.php
  24. Thanks dan my server does recognize the .flv MIME type. i will try out diff flv compressions may be that is causing a conflict. thanks
