by Forrest Maready 11 years ago
I often have this problem: I've consolidated some layers into a PreComp. I've been working in the PreComp for a while and realize I need the Parent comps audio in the PreComp. Every time I copy and pa

You could try precomposing the audio layers into an "Audio Comp" and using that in your main comp as well as your precomp. Patrick Algermissen Poem Pictures, Inc. www.PoemFilms.com
Moving an object to an exact frame?
by Chris Grant 11 years ago
Hello I was wondering if someone could tell me how to move an object to an exact frame in After Effects CS3. Basically what ive done is imported a fog video effect and it is not long enough to fill my

by Patrick Algermissen 11 years ago
Another suggestion, just for the sake of completeness: 1) Select your first layer. 2) Press the 'O' key (that's "oh," not zero) to move to the out point of that layer. 3) Start dragging your second la
I cannot render my project!!

I have been using working on an AE greenscreen compositing project for 2 months now, and after completing the project I went to render it... and every time I try, I get this error message half-way th
Re: I cannot render my project!!
by Patrick Algermissen 11 years ago
Hmmmm.... I'm mostly out of ideas at this point, especially not knowing your specific project. Maybe you could try rendering as an image sequence, and rendering only parts of it at a time. Is it just
Easiest way to do this effect
by Anders Haavie 11 years ago
Any way to do this fast in after effects, or is this just tedious labour and manually moving the black bars around with the picture. My friend is trying to do something like this in FCP, and he is not

by Patrick Algermissen 11 years ago
You could probably get the random bars by using fractal noise with the blocky noise type, and doing a vertical-only stretch to get the blocks to become vertical bars. Then you could use the layer as a
Getting a 3d position without Max2AE
by Liron Al 11 years ago
Hi there, I have a scene in which I have a room and an animated camera. I need to write a text on one of the walls in the room, using AE, and I'm looking for an easy way to do it without Max2AE plug-i
Re: Getting a 3d position without Max2AE
by Patrick Algermissen 11 years ago
I'm assuming here that your room and animated camera are rendered out from Max. That being the case, if you have access to the Max project and can re-render it, then there are a couple of things you c
3D Layers flickering

Hi guys, I'm working on a project with a bunch of 3D layers, and the camera is tracking from left to right. What I'm seeing is occasionally a flickering of a couple of layers that overlap in the 2D ca
Re: 3D Layers flickering
by Patrick Algermissen 11 years ago
I ran into similar flickering problems on my last project. Not just order flickering, but also random holes showing up in my mattes, half layers disappearing, etc. I think it was a memory issue. Usual

Animation Presets.
by matt rinaldo 11 years ago
I was testing out text animation presents and found one that I like. Except that I want it to happens faster. Is it possible to make adjustments to the animation presents, how and where do you do that
Re: Animation Presets.
by Patrick Algermissen 11 years ago
My understanding is that the Text Presets just apply various Animators to the text layer, so you should be able to edit the results of a preset by modifying the animators added there, adding new ones,

Thanks, David! I think you make it an even 50 50 split now on the music, which probably isn't good odds. I will be redoing my reel once the project I'm working on now screens at The Smithsonian, and l

Hello everyone, I realise this may be a broad and complex question, but I'm just testing the waters at the moment so will be happy to hear alternative methods or opinions. I'll soon be filming a music
