by Stuart Elith 8 years ago
Hi all, We're getting a strange problem with gamma color shift in files rendered from After Effects. We were supplied FCP Uncompressed 10-Bit 4:2:2 footage, which I have VFX'ed and rendered out. Here'

Thanks for the quick reply, Tudor. I'm using AE CS5 (should have mentioned that earlier!) on a Mac running Leopard. Color management is off, which is how we've always done things. I have just tried re

How can I apply a tracker again I tracked a layer, and after I had applied it to a layer, I decided I needed to extend the tracking. If I go to the tracker, it lets me track the shot starting from the

Something unusual is happening in your circumstance, because you definitely can continue working with a tracker once you apply it the first time. I did it just yesterday... went back and realised I ne

Hi all, I'm working on a very long video piece (about 55mins all up) with AE work all the way through. I have just rendered a jpg sequence of the whole thing and need to reimport it to a new AE projec

OK never mind, I think I've got something figured out. It seems there may well be a limit to the number of files available in a sequence. I have split the files into four folders, each with 20k frames

I have a video clip in which a DVD is playing on a TV, but I want to replace the TV's display with something else. How can Adobe After Effects CS3 achieve this goal I've never had to use this program

AE can definitely do this, but you are going to have to learn a lot of basics before you have success with this. If the shot is COMPLETELY still it will be a lot easier, if there is any camera movemen
Remove Object in Static Shot?
by Alex Meyers 10 years ago
Hi Everybody, I'm trying to determine the best technique to remove an object from a shot. Nothing passes in front of the object, and there is no camera movement. I've tried the clone tool -- using a "
Re: Remove Object in Static Shot?
by Stuart Elith 10 years ago
Depending on the shot, i even often prefer to use just a single still image rather than a loop of 4 or 5. With more than one, you need to be more careful with your healing work so there is no boiling

by Stuart Elith 10 years ago
Ok, I think I understand what you're doing, and what you're asking for. If I understand correctly, then you've ALMOST got it right. So you've rotoscoped (traced) the glasses, so now you've got a grey
magnify issue
by Hamid Rohi-Bilverdy 10 years ago
hi... So i have tried to play around with the adjustment and solid layer to create the magnify effect but with no luck.. I want to create a rectangle mask which should have the magnify effect applied.
Re: magnify issue
by Stuart Elith 10 years ago
Your problem is that Magnify doesn't use a whole layer, there is a point from which it magnifies (you can specify circle or square only). So one option is to position the center of the Magnify effect

It just looks like interlacing to me... a blown up screenshot so the fields look a lot bigger fatter. If that's the case, yes, you will notice it most when there is fast movement. Read the AE help fil
