DPX to prores 4444
by Seth Olson 2 years ago
I'm trying to convert a DPX sequence to ProRes 4444. The alpha works well, but the color shifts, and I don't know why. Here is the command line I am using: ffmpeg -start_number 0000 -f image2 -r 23.98

as an aside, ffmpeg will display the supported pixel formats when you input: ffmpeg -pix_fmts You can pipe the output and grep to 'filter' strict rgb formats. Note that pixel ordening will mean they'r
Bake Jiggle deformation

Hey! So, I've got a platonic that has a random scaling with Jiggle. It looks great, now I want to clone it. I tried a Point Cache, which makes the distortion permanent, but when i clone and use a Shad

first guess: it looks like the torus is a procedural object. try making it a polygon first by making it editable. then apply your dynamics and bake process.

Disable Motion Blur for Stage Object camera change

When I use the stage object to jump between other cameras in the same scene, the motion blur carries from the previous camera to the new camera, causing a fade transition between the cameras. I am loo

Random Color

the spring is a dynamic object with free rotating ends it can't be stopped unless you limit things. A Slider connector is probably the easiest 10020_springtest3.c4d.zip
