Kalleheikk, Thanks, That worked. Not exactly the particle behaviour as when it was using the actual obj but it might work out.... that's up to the client. Thanks for your help. Jack

by Jack Hilkewich 4 months ago
I have made a decision to do everything in 10mm, so it was shot entirely with a 10mm lens. I will have 3d animated re-enactments that will also use a 10mm lens. After effects will be use for shooting

by Jack Hilkewich 11 years ago
They move sequentially. I was thinking of doing the camera move but I need all of the layers to end up in a very specific point. The text quotes come together to form the shape of a logo. The first fe

Re: After Effects CS3 Freeze frame problem

I think the problem is the fact that you have some files on an external HD that isn't fast enough. Move all your files on to the main Hd in your computer and I think the problem will go away.

by Jack Hilkewich 12 years ago
I'm probably the last guy who should be answering a post on expressions but.... I think you just have to precompose the layer. then you can move it around and have it start when you need to. I've done

by blobtilton 12 years ago
I'll address your question about making the movie square - I assume you mean you don't want it to distort perspective-wise. I'd say just to cheat it in the scene. In other words, don't position the li

Re: Complex camera movements
by Jack Hilkewich 13 years ago
One way to make it easier to do camera movements is to parent the camera to a null. Using the example movie you suggested place the null in the center of the walls of pics and place the camera away fr

Re: DOF
by Jack Hilkewich 13 years ago
Thanks for your help Dan! It seems to be an easy thing, in theory, to do. Just assign a location (layer)to the focus distance and where ever that layer is in 3d space, it's always in focus. I must be
