Hardware upgrades for increased speed?
by Paul King 7 months ago
Hi folks, I've been doing a lot of reading on this, but I'm not the most computer savvy person and there are lots of contradicting opinions. I would be so grateful for any input. I use After Effects f

Changing Axis alignment
by James Nielson 7 months ago
Is there a way to move and align a layer's axis in After Effects similar to what's available in Cinema 4D I want to re-orient the axis without rotating the object, so that the layer's X is aligned wit
Re: Changing Axis alignment
by James Nielson 7 months ago

by Olly Lawer 5 years ago
We've got MP turned on. Keeps getting stuck on "rendering 2 frames" for ages...then finally ploughs through the animation. The Mac Pro used to do this, but since we got a thunderbolt SSD, it is better
Re: Stuck on "rendering 2 frames" for ages
by James Nielson 5 years ago
Sounds similar to my glitch: I've got a main comp in which I'm assembling sections of an animation. I WAS sending each of those sub-comps to render individually, but AE recently started taking forever

by Namron 12 years ago
Does anyone with leopard know if the 10.5.1 update improves fcs2 stability. I'm, still on tiger (with latest fcs2 updates) but will only upgrade to leopard when it's safe.

Just installed Leopard & FCS2 on a dual 1.8 G5, a G4 iMac, and a Macbook Pro. They all seem to running fine with FCS2, of course, because that's all Apple. There was one FCP crash. Make sure you run S
