XPresso Cylinder Growth
by Glenn Tak 1 year ago
Been trying to create an XPresso set-up that allows me to grow a Parametric Pipe object from the end instead of from the middle so that the end stays in place and the other end grows outward. I'd like

You could also animate empty polys and use the trace feature to link the space between them.
Controlling Time Indicator with a slider
by Glenn Tak 2 years ago
I have created a faux interface for a movie player. I have a slider controlling the position of the fake control. I would like to have the same slider control the video that is in my precomp. So when
Re: Controlling Time Indicator with a slider
by Glenn Tak 2 years ago
Well I've managed to get the slider to control the Time Remapped movie in a comp which works great if you have the Time Indicator placed at the last frame. But if you move the time indicator it change
External Compositing Woes
by Glenn Tak 2 years ago
I still can't figure out why my External Compositing Planes won't come into After Effects with the Axis in the correct directions. I have tried it with Primitive Planes and Polyganol planes. I have ma
Re: External Compositing Woes
by Glenn Tak 2 years ago
Thanks for the quick response. The odd thing is I watched a YouTube Quicktip from PixelLab and they illustrated that if you set your axis to match the world axis in C4D, it should work perfectly in AE
MOCHA File Import Error
by Glenn Tak 5 years ago
IS anyone else having issues with MOCHA AE importing Quicktime Formats or AVI formats. Running AE CC14 on a MAC OS10.8.5. The only thing that opens is if I export my file to an image sequence and reim
Re: MOCHA File Import Error
by Glenn Tak 3 years ago
A few months ago one of the Techs at Imagineer finally solved this issue for me. It had to do with MacKeeper and the Binary Cutter function which apparently removed a needed resource for Mocha. I woul

Is there a keyboard command to snap your playhead to the "outgoing" frame of a clip rather than the "incoming" frame of the next clip. Shift snaps the playhead to the first frame of a clip. If I want
Linear Workspace - Pantone Colors & hexidecimals
by Glenn Tak 4 years ago
I have been trying to mix some C4D files that utilized Linear Workspace with an After Effect file that requires specific Pantone colors. When I go into the Linear workspace in AE, any use of a Pantone
Re: Linear Workspace - Pantone Colors & hexidecimals
by Glenn Tak 4 years ago
One of the more annoying features of Linear Space is that my color libraries don't really work. If I use the color picker from a library swatch I created in Adobe Color, I get a much more washed out v
Cheezy Sparkle Trail Effect from AVID

I have been trying to recreate the old style Sparkle Trail from AVID in an After Effects project. I am using Particular with Sprites but I'm not getting an effect that looks like AVID. Have any of you

Timecode Problem from Premiere to Audition
by Glenn Tak 5 years ago
I exported an Aiff file from Premiere. 23.976. Brought it into Audition. Did some work on it in the waveform editor (not the multitrack) saved it and re-imported to Premiere Pro. The audio is signific
Re: Timecode Problem from Premiere to Audition
by Glenn Tak 5 years ago
Problem is it is a heavily edited dialogue piece. If I try to send it to Audition it sends it as separate edited pieces. Almost thirty of them. I need it as one clip so I can clean it and effect it as
Custom Arrowheads on Stroke
by Glenn Tak 5 years ago
I seem to recall that there was a way to create customized arrowheads for the STROKE function in past versions of AI. Is this a functionality available in CC I want to create a very specific shape for
Contrast Difference Between Encoder Render and AE Render
by Glenn Tak 5 years ago
I have rendered out the same AE file through the AE Renderer and the encoder using ProRes HQ on both. I have tried to match the settings the same although both interfaces have slightly different optio
Re: Contrast Difference Between Encoder Render and AE Render
by Glenn Tak 5 years ago
This is apparently an issue with Color Workspace Profiles. When I turn off Linear Light in AE Project Settings my images look like the output from Encoder. So there must be a way to embed the color sp
Rendering/Energy Saver
by Glenn Tak 5 years ago
It used to be that I could leave C4D rendering overnight and even though I had my Energy Saver System settings at 15 minutes, it would realize that C4D was rendering and would stay awake. I'm not sure
Re: Rendering/Energy Saver
by Glenn Tak 5 years ago
Seems odd that they would remove this functionality. It was recommended to me that I use the Caffeine App which gives you a menu icon (a coffee cup) that turns energy saver on and off. Seems to work.
MOTEXT • Justify Left and Right
by Glenn Tak 6 years ago
The new controls over Motext individual letters are great but it is unfortunate that there is not a Left AND Right justify option. I have a long paragraph with a lot of line breaks. I can split each l
Re: MOTEXT • Justify Left and Right
by Glenn Tak 6 years ago
Yes. Full Justification. I kind of suspected it was not possible. Just wanted to see if I was missing something. Thanks for the quick response. TAK
Expression along elipse

Re: Expression along elipse

Dan I'm revisiting this project problem for my client. We are now up to 9 objects spinning around the ellipse. I've noticed that at this number they don't seem to be evenly spaced out and they clump u

Re: C4D OBJ Error
by Glenn Tak 6 years ago
Sheesh... I guess that's what happens when you break OS protocol. That was definitely the problem on my end as well. Thanks so much. It would have stymied me until I began a new project without a . TA

You should contact Cactus Dan (try a Google search). He's a very good rigger and in fact already has a fully rigged rattlesnake he might be willing to sell you. It uses his proprietary plugins, though
