Need some advice on building a video wall effect
by Phil Williams 2 months ago
Hi guys, I'm planning to build a 36-clip video wall (4 rows of 9 clips, each in their native 16:9 aspect ratio), and I also want to be able to use the camera to zoom into specific clips so that they f

No need to make the precomp of 17280 width. In master comp, just change camera to front view and dolly backwards to see what you're doing from a distance. You can make the 4x9 grid from that view, the
How to make Outer Glow layer style work properly in 3D space?
by Phil Williams 7 months ago
Hi guys, I'm doing a basic 3D camera animation involving precomps placed at different depths in Z-space. The precomps are all very simple - a video clip with a shape layer acting as a track matte. I w

by Oleg Pirogov 7 months ago
If I got it right, you've applied Layer Styles to a 3D layer (a precomp) and after that it stopped interacting properly with other 3D layers Yeah, that's what it does: https: www.provideocoalition.com
Best workflow for adding real-world handheld camera wobble?
by Phil Williams 1 year ago
I've built a corkboard with some photos stuck to it and animated the camera to move between the photos, revealing them one at a time. I also want to add some real-world handheld camera wobble. I've cr

I suppose it just felt that I was doing something "wrong" by making the image layers shake, rather than shaking the camera. But of course, applying the motion track to the camera totally screwed up th
Does AE have an auto-scaling option when pushing layers back in Z space?
by Phil Williams 1 year ago
In Motion, you can hold down one of the option keys while adjusting the Z space position of a layer and Motion will auto-scale the layer to maintain its relative size as it gets further away from the

What's the best way to clean up the green spill on this shot? (pic)

I'm going to do a perspective corner pin to replace the screen in this bit of stock footage, but what's the best way to remove the green spill on the edge of the kid's fingers, using only stock AE eff

Heh! Just dropped that on, and it's done - thanks! I'd been messing around with Keylight and not getting the effect I wanted...

Hello everyone, the film I'm currently editing has a shot in it, from which I would like to remove some objects in the background. However, in the foreground the actor passes in front of those objects

Bad TV filter gone weird?
by Phil Williams 9 years ago
I've just tried using the Bad TV filter for the first time since upgrading to Snow Leopard 10.6.3 and Motion 4.0.2, and it's being weird. If I apply it directly to text, it replicates that text to fil

Im also having this problem. Creating a group works but there is still repeat coming from the sides when the effect moves the text horizontally. Is there something im missing here
Field rendering problem in FCP when embedding Motion project
by Phil Williams 9 years ago
I've just started using embedding to send clips from FCP to Motion - previously I've sent the whole sequence, then exported the finished product as a QuickTime which I re-imported into FCP. I work exc
Re: Field rendering problem in FCP when embedding Motion project
by Phil Williams 9 years ago
Hi Mark, There's no field rendering option. There's field dominance, which you can change between None, Not Set, Upper or Lower, but setting it to None or Not Set does not switch off field rendering.
How to achieve this Apple in-store demo movie effect?
by Phil Williams 10 years ago
I can't find an actual clip of this to link to, so I hope I can explain it reasonably well - please bear with me! I'm interested in recreating an effect I've seen in some Apple in-store videos. Imagin

Thanks for that, Andy. BTW it was your Video Wall tutorial that taught me how you could use the "start frame offset" function of a replicator, so thanks for that as well :)
Generating an outline for masked/keyed objects?

Is there a straightforward way of generating an adjustable outline around any masked or keyed object ISTR being able to do this with vision mixers (switchers) back in the old days :) For example, I of

sequence behavior

Hi, I tried to ask this question in my old post, but nobody saw it :) so I try one more time: http: www.youtube.com watch v=SD-VKTnRnUw This is my draft animation. As you can see all particles come on

by Phil Williams 10 years ago
Ah right, so it's actually a replicator rather than a particle emitter. Thanks for the link (and to Mark for the actual example).
Illustrator graphics " jumping" during dissolve
by Anna Whyte 10 years ago
I am using a lot of illustrator graphics and they work unless I make some simple moves with motion. Then there is a small jump during the dissolve. I'm using FCP7 and Illustrator CS3 or 4, motion 3.5
Re: Illustrator graphics " jumping" during dissolve
by Phil Williams 10 years ago
This seems to be a longstanding bug, I've had it happen in both Motion 3 and 4, but with me it tends to happen more with text I've typed within Motion - every so often, a single letter in a line of te
Did Adobe change something with AAF between PPro 2 and CS4?
by Phil Williams 10 years ago
We've recently updated some of our PPros from 2.0 to CS4, and now our Avids won't import AAFs generated by the CS4 machines. Our workaround is to import CS4 AAFs into 2.0 and then re-export them from
