Nulls, animating POI and cameras...
by Paul Maguire 12 years ago
Hi again. I find it really tricky to get my feeble brain around this. I have a camera parented to a Null. The camera is set -500 in the z (this null is used to easily animate and control the camera).

Thnx Dan. Space Transforms in AfterFX are possibly the most poorly named and confusing functions in history of coding. I would rather slerp a quaternion in maxscript. Michael Powers Creative Director

CUDA and CS6 Aerender.exe

Aerender.exe does not seems to use the CUDA on my Quadro4000 for raytraced comps. The command line shows that it sees the card, but all CPUs are pegged and render times are consistent with CPU render.

Thnx Walter. Thank you both for your help. I'll give it a whirl. I am interested to see if it is only used with raytraced comps or forces all renders to the GPU. Michael Powers Creative Director, Anim
3D Tracking to a Moving Object
