After effect 2017 14.2.1.34 problem mocha shape and re:vision rsmb
by Philippe Lessard 2 years ago
Hi, I like to use reel smart motion blur from re:vision effect(RSMB) with my roto, that I do in Mocha for after effect. Normally I just paste the roto shape from mocha in AE in the effect control pane

by Peter Litwinowicz 2 years ago
I wrote to you offline. The problem is that your shape is black, and that RSMB sees completely transparent areas as black too. So the "trick" is to make a copy of the animated shape that is white, and
Does ReFlex calculate masks in a hierarchical manner - same like how AE operates on Masks (top-down)?
by Roland R. Kahlenberg 3 years ago
I'm asking cos I'm wondering if it's OK if I've got a hand going over a face (for both shots motion morph). Should I place the hand masks above the face masks Or it doesn't matter Cheers - Roland Type

by Peter Litwinowicz 3 years ago

Hi folks, I just purchased ReFlex and all is swimmingly good except for a full-body morph I'm doing right now. Hand and body movements are done and look good. But I can't get the head turn to look goo
Re: Where's the AEP for the Head-turning Tutorial in the Manual
by Peter Litwinowicz 3 years ago
Yeah, you pretty much want things to "more or less" match from frame to frame... and sometimes things need to be separated into different layers if objects cross. Just the nature of morphing. That sai

Re: Problems with Twixtor

Is sounds like you are animating the Speed% or Frame Num parameter of Twixtor, yes (and not just a constant slowdown) If so, I'm guessing this is happening because you are using bezier keyframes inste

Exactly what Kalle Kannisto said! Well what most people would do is warp the hair of one person and to try to make it flat against the bald head of the other. Or , separate out the hair on another lev

Re: Twixtor workflow question - makes me want to run a mile
by Peter Litwinowicz 4 years ago
Instead of doing it the way you are doing, on the first frame of the sequence set a Speed % keyframe of 100. Then on the frame before the section you want to slow down, set another keyframe of 100%. T

by Peter Litwinowicz 4 years ago
Gosh, it's a matter of taste, isn't it However if you want to simulate 180 degree shutter and you had shot with a shutter that captured no blur, I would use 0.5. Since you already have some blur, shoo
