Hi Edward, Yes, this problem is happening with standard system fonts like Arial. I am not using any type of font manager either. It's rather strange because it was working until a couple of weeks ago.
AE6 and Nvidia GTX 770 video card

I was under the impression that the 700 series of the Nvidia GTX graphics cards were compatible with AE6 in that I could employ the GPU for ray traced processing, however in the settings GPU informati

Hi Gary, Yes, it seems to be working just great. A short ray traced scene that took 10m 29s to render on my old Quadro FX3800 (UK 700 when I bought it!) took only 3m 26s on the 770. Good luck. Mike.

Invigorator Pro vs. Element 3D
by Mike James 8 years ago
I've used both Element 3D and Invigorator Pro in my workplace (I get a few hours a day to play on a colleagues PC!). For me there is absolutely no contest. 3D Invigorator is by far the better product.

OOPS! Sorry; I meant to post this in reply to the "Comparison of Invigorator 3D Pro 6 and Element 3D" thread.
Corrupted composition?

Hello cows, I have a composition that is behaving strangely. If I try and pre-compose it, AE crashes. If I try and copy the layers and move them to another composition, AE crashes. If I even drag the

Thanks guys. My footage is all ProRes 422. I was able to export the comp using the file export process (to quicktime). It exported fine. In this situation, this will work for me. Copy paste sounds goo

by Matt Rhodes 8 years ago
Hi Mike. You shouldn't need to update the Comp just before rendering, but it's probably not a bad idea. We have the Update button script because we use some aspects of After Effects layers that don't

Ideally, Quadro FX 1800 thru 5800 is ideal if u ever plan to upgrade to CS5. You could try the GTX series. A graphics card like Quadro will only help in fast encoding and display of 3d content. For co

I have a comp that has around 500 layers laid out, from right in front of the comp camera, back into deep Z space. There's about a 500 pixel gap in Z space between each layer. Added to that, each laye

Hi Mike, Sure, 3D Invigorator PRO works with the After Effects layer hierarchy. This means if you have an After Effects layer placed on top of the 3D Invigorator PRO layer, then it will cover up the I
