I also wanted to chime in with Walter as I believe his advice is very solid. Before: Back up your project file elsewhere JUST IN CASE. Since you're going to be disconnecting media you want to have an

PA6 Antialiasing Artifacts
by Austin Reeves 7 years ago
You guys were so helpful, I figured I'd come back for more! I upgraded last night to PA6 and found something I couldn't explain. Using any of the AA blurs, +0.6, +1.0, +1.5 (Invig Renderer) I'm seeing

Thanks, you and I came to the same solution actually. I just rendered using 5x5 and applying a Fast Blur @ 0.6 and the same basic result as doing it in software. Not a big deal, I just wanted to pass

ProAnimator Lighting - Settings not responding accurately

First let me say, the new 5.0 looks awesome and I've already purchased my upgrade even before the plugin (mac) becomes available. It isn't really an upgrade so much as a new program all together... Ni

Hi Austin, Try lowering the Intensity of the Ambient light, and all the other lights you have in your scene. This should darken your scene dramatically. If you are still having issues, please send a s

Okay, so I'm back to admit my defeat lol. The setting I did works, but after batching files, I had sync issues again. To fix it, all I had to do was open the individual project files in STP, click sav

Light at camera
by lumpynifkin 12 years ago
Anyone have a good way to do the bright light at the camera effect that was abused in the transformers movie. Movie was great bu they definitely overused that light effect. Thanks for any tips.
Re: Light at camera
by Austin Reeves 12 years ago
Alright completely off topic, but I didn't think the effect was overused at all. The whole point with the lighting in the movie was to give you a sense of awe and try and make the bots feel larger tha

Re: Setting 32 bit float in CS3 makes comp window image very dark

Are you using Color Management If so that may be your problem, and if not, you may need to enable it. Atleast for me, I've found that its just easier with CS3 to plan on using Color Management ALWAYS.
