by David Franklin 9 years ago

Fixed light over 3D comp
by Mario Sahe-Lacheante 10 years ago
Hi there I'm having a struggle with adding a light to my comp and get it to do what I want. I've created a 3D animating house (from architectural plans) for an architectural firm, which builds from sc
Re: Fixed light over 3D comp

I mean what you say in the first sentence. If there was a car in my scene and the light was pointed at its front, it would stay pointed at the front of the car. The camera moves around the scene witho
"Fire Trail" effect help needed
by Mark Ramsey 10 years ago
A friend of mine, an avid snowboarder, asked if I could make a trail of fire, like in Back To The Future, igniting behind his snowboard as he zooms past the camera. I have a wall of flame already keye

Do you have a copy of trapcode particular or particular 2.0 If there's any 3D aspect to your scene, it's going to be difficult to key in a single layer of fire and have it look like anything. In the p
Anchor text in tracking shot

I'm your typical do it all editor, who isn't quite a master with AE just yet. However my clients want to upgrade their title look for their spots by implementing their logo within the shot rather than

Dave is, again, correct. :) And a faster typist than me. What I'll say is that SynthEyes is great. But having worked with it for about 9 months now off and on without fully mastering it, I can say fro
Dolly Effect and Color Question
by Robert Lopez 10 years ago
Hi all, thanks for reading and thanks in advance for your tips. Just shot some footage for a short film, shot it HD 720pn, some 24 fps some 60 fps. Delivery will be HD as well, so I am setting up my p
Re: Dolly Effect and Color Question
by David Franklin 10 years ago
While Dave is (as usual) entirely correct, I have found that you can enlarge footage up to about 115 percent before anyone but you (and fellow AE enthusiasts) will notice. Thus, if you would like to a
Grow Your Own Etsy

Since I learned almost everything I know about After Effects from Creative Cow demos, I thought I might ask the cow members to check out what I've been up to recently: I made the video "Grow Your Own
EX1 "Cannot Proceed"

I just got a EX1 and when I switch the gain or White Balance switches I get "Cannot Proceed" text on the LCD. I am not in AUTO or AGC. I can change the settings by using the direct mode on the LCD. Am

Me too. Thanks COW. And thank the good folks at SONY for including the AUTO ALL button, or else I would have gotten nothing. Made With Care In Brooklyn, NY
shakey Quicktime imports
by Dan LaCloche 12 years ago
Has anyone heard of flickery quicktime imports into Avid Media Composer Adreniline 2.6.4 As an After Effects person, it sounded like a field order thing, but I rendered lower field first and upper fie
Re: What's the resolution of the source and rendered files?
by David Franklin 11 years ago
Did you ever resolve this problem I'm having the exact same issue. (Well, except I'm on a Composer 2.7.) I render out of After Effects using the Animation codec to a Quicktime at 29.97. When I watch i

Hello Cow, I tried searching for this on the archive, but didn't find anything. So forgive me if this has been asked and answered. I'm trying to cut material from one sequence into another in an Avid
XDcam and FCP storage space
by Scott Howard 12 years ago
I'm looking down the road at my next camera and the EX and the full size XDcams look intriguing. One question I have is how much storage space the XDcam files take in FCP - for arguments sake use the

by David Franklin 12 years ago
This isn't really the forum for it, but let me say to be very very sure you like the look of XD picture before you invest in a camera. I work with stuff shot on XD every day, and I can't tell you how

Thanks for the feedback. Several things have been funky lately. I'm thinking I may go for a clean install and see if it helps. Again, thanks for responding.
FCP crashes on startup
by Mitch Jordan 12 years ago
We recently updated to Final Cut Studio 2 on our dual G-5. Final Cut Pro starts up fine on the login that we used to install the update. However, it crashes before it finishes starting up on a differe
Re: FCP crashes on startup
by David Franklin 12 years ago
For some reason this doesn't work for me. I signed in to the troublesome User ID, followed the steps you outlined (well, since I am using 5.1.4 there were slightly fewer files) and then relaunched. FC

Thanks very much Walter for your quick response. I tried this trick of bringing the levels down first, and it really helped. I'm able to use less layers of Colorista to get the same result now. If I'm

Trying to connect my JVC GY-HD110U to FCP with no luck...please help!
by Coulter Mitchell 12 years ago
I have a JVD GY-HD110U that I shot all of my footage on (in HD 24p) for my current project. I have it connected via Firewire to my Mac Book Pro, on which I'm running a recently updated version of FCp
Re: Trying to connect my JVC GY-HD110U to FCP with no luck...please help!
by David Franklin 12 years ago
When you say you used HD 24p, I assume you mean HDV 24p. JVC's HDV codec is a 720x1280 frame size, 24 frame per second progressive codec. It's totally different from HDV on a Sony camera, for example.
