I have often pondered the essence of my own being. The why's, how's, when's of circumstances responsible for me being where I am today and acting, feeling, thinking the way I do. What makes me say the things I say? and do the things I do? What is it that lies at the core, the hub, that controls my behaviour? What makes me function?
Yes, I am still looking for the answer to who I really am... possibly hidden under layers of socially induced protective filters; possibly out in the open for the world to see... I don't know. Have I broken the chains holding down my innermost desires? the barriers preventing me from reaching the true me? free from all inhibitions? How can you tell? How can you be sure you are being truly, and justly, honest with yourself? That you have an undeniable understanding of what it is you really want?
How can I know what I really want? How can I be sure my emotions are sincere and not just a habitual response? What if those emotions aren't real? What if I'm not real? What if I'm just a figment of someone elses imagination? An experiment in alternate realities? A weirdo conjured up in someone's dream? What if that someone wakes up? What if they have a nightmare? What if they have sadistic tendencies? Would I call that someone God?
But I don't despair at the absence of an irrefutable solution. 'tis the quest to find this answer... the pursuit of this great unknown... which drives me forward... to enjoy every day as it comes... and embrace the wealth of knowledge and experience that it brings... the surprises, pleasant or unpleasant... building blocks, to constructing a stronger and wiser me... a more gratified me. I just find that this way, I learn more to appreciate, this breathtaking miracle that is life.

Re: Footage not showing up with right fps by Mehmet Akten 12 years ago Hi, I was wondering if you found a solution as I have the same problem. I recorded at 30fps with snapzpro and encoded as Prores HQ (1280x720). I play the file in quicktime it reports 30fps, duration 2
Multipass rendering using NET by Geoff Thomson 13 years ago Hi guys. I've been using NET to render my bigger jobs for a while and it's great, but I have never managed to figure out how to get it to render MULTI-PASS jobs. Always seem to get single flat files.
Re: Multipass rendering using NET by Mehmet Akten 13 years ago I'm using 10.5 and advanced render with many passes (object buffers, global illumination, ambient occlusion, specular etc. all seperate passes). And I didn't need to do anything special, it all works
Compositing tag for materials by Mehmet Akten 13 years ago Hi, I am working on a project in Cinema4D which I render as multi-pass and do the post in After Effects. I've got all the image and material passes that I need. I've added compositing tags to objects
3D Camera facing expressions by Mehmet Akten 13 years ago Hi All, I initially posted this in the standard AE forums without realizing there was a seperate container for expressions, so I'm closing that and carrying on here. The original thread is at http: fo
Washed out colors in quicktime. by Mehmet Akten 13 years ago Hi all, i've been a long time PC user, and have always rendered out my movies (usually a few minute graphic live action mixed videos from aftereffects) as quicktime PNG because it compresses so well f
Re: Washed out colors in quicktime. by Mehmet Akten 13 years ago Hi Thanks, that seems to have done the trick for those quicktimes, but now all my other quicktimes are too dark! I dont understand exactly whats correcting for what here. Normally does quicktime take

NEW TO 3D by Andre Gomes 13 years ago hI tHERE, I know this is the wrong forum for this, but is there anyone who can point me in the direction of 3d software and workflow advice. I have had little experience with 3ds max and poser. The wo
Re: NEW TO 3D by Mehmet Akten 13 years ago I've used 3DSMax for many many years (before version 1), and also played around with Maya... but recently tried Cinema 4D and it seems by far the most easiest to get into and still top quality results
Children of Men effect? by Empathetic1636 13 years ago I was watching the making of the film...and was curious; In the opening when the coffee shop explodes, there is a bunch of effects including advertisements playing on the buildings in the background.
Re: Children of Men effect? by Mehmet Akten 13 years ago Thats a really cool making of video... especially the scene with the car is amazing! For the explosion scene I think they would have used the green for keying. The buildings aren't moving but the came

Re: AE CS3 doesn't see 8GB of RAM... by Mehmet Akten 13 years ago Yea when you have multiprocessing turned on effectively a seperate instance of aftereffects is launched for each core when you render or ram preview - like having a render farm in one machine. I usual
IO HD with varicam by Mehmet Akten 13 years ago I am about to do a shoot with a Varicam, 720p @60 fps. I was originally planning on capturing the tapes via deck- firewire with the native DVCPRO-HD codec as it seems FCP has full native support for i
