Hi folks - Is there a way to make the layer marker text show up in the comp window. I am assembling 110+ short cartoon shots and I want to be able to watch the video and see what shots need fixing. We

Just to update the archive, (since I was searching on this!), Here's the updated code in AE2019: On your text layer, you can grab a bunch of properties by pasting this into the source text expression.

Hi there. I'm wondering if anyone has any insight for an audio problem I'm having. I'm starting to get to the end of the Presonus Technical support patience, as it looks like theres a software problem
Different camera angle in editor view and picture viewer

Hi folks It never happened before but the camera angle I set in editor view gives a slightly different angle render in picture viewer. In editor render, I get the correct angle. Not sure why is it hap

I was just having this same problem. My view was just off enough to be be troubling, but not enough that I was obviously rendering the wrong view. The problem turned out to be a Target tag I had attac

Trim multiple layers keeping start points?

Trying to speed up render times. If I have a bunch of layers that don't need to overlap and go up in a staircase, is there a quick way select them and trim each so that it ends just as the next step b

Do a search on "trim" in aescripts.com. I think there are a few different solutions, depending on what you want to do.

PNGIO library error--render failure
by Eric Knisley 11 years ago
Greetings all, I am rendering out frames of animation which will be played back in an immersive dome projection system. The frames are 2048x2048, 30 fps. I am rendering to .png files, no compression.
Re: PNGIO library error--render failure

Thanks. It sounds like that's a common error that may be resulting from a number of different issues (since I'm not working with PNGs). But since I'm here, I'll post my solution... I had the incorrect
Fog 3D useless using only AE 3D layers?
by Greg Neumayer 11 years ago
I've done some digging around, and still can't quite understand what AE is trying to give us with "Fog 3D". The (basically worthless) Effects Reference makes no suggestion that the scene it's using as

Thanks, Miklos. In the last 8 years since I started this thread, I've also learned (or they've developed) the ability to link effects to the distance from the camera. With this information, for exampl
Script or tool to toggle visibility(or audio) globally for certain sub layers?

Hi gang. My client wants me to export separate Voice-over, Music, SFX, and Picture versions of our project. Many of the VO and SFX clips are pretty deep in sub-layers, since we're animating mouths to
Re: Script or tool to toggle visibility(or audio) globally for certain sub layers?
by Greg C Neumayer 3 years ago
Yeah, that's almost perfect, but it looks like it's limited to only the current comp. I need to be able to set up my project so that later I can toggle those little layers down in sub-comps.
Toggle Transparency Grid Shortcut in After Effects
by Cole Bo 3 years ago
Does anyone know if it possible that the Transparency Grid can be toggled on off with a shortcut (Even if that includes creating a script that is assigned to a custom shortcut).
Re: Toggle Transparency Grid Shortcut in After Effects

I've always hated the colors, so notwithstanding Walter's answer, I changed the colors so they were (what I consider) much more helpful. I made them a neutral green-gray and a purple-gray so most ever
Change default transparency grid colors?

I'd like to change the default colors of the transparency grid in AI. Currently it's white and grey. I'd like it to be 0x0053564B and 0x004F4D53 which is the format for AE prefs. (It's a medium tone g

Import a piece of data from Excel for each comp? (and other data questions)

Hi there. I'm a bit in new territory here, so I've got a couple questions about using Excel data. I need to place about 50,000 points of data into a world map. (location markers) I've started playing
Re: Import a piece of data from Excel for each comp? (and other data questions)
by Greg C Neumayer 3 years ago
Just to update my post... 50,000 data points turned into comps kills AE (which wasn't surprising). I don't think a comp can really manage more than a couple hundred items, so I'll need to find another
3D Layer is literally hiding half the layers above it

Hi guys, I am a beginner so I guess this would be easily fixed. I am using the 3d camera, but the layer 'floor' is underneath the layers of the products, but it is somehow, covering half of the produc
Re: 3D Layer is literally hiding half the layers above it
by Tudor "Ted" Jelescu 3 years ago
In 3d space you have to account for the actual position of the layers and not just the order in the layer stack. Your products are too low on the Y axis. You either need to lower the floor or bring th

Ug. I was afraid of that. Fortunately, with this project my aforementioned fix worked. 3D is definitely one of those places where the rule is true: If it looks right, it is right. "Takes" looks cool.

manual update R15.057?

I've been having crashing issues with C4D R15.057 (Broadcast) on my Mac computer, so after repairing permissions (to no avail), I've re-installed R15. Once complete, I'm now on R15.008, so naturally I

Ok, problem fixed: C4D thought it was already updated to .057 even though it was .008, so it kept bailing on the updater. I repaired permissions for good measure, then per tech support: I trashed pref
