I've just attempted to use the 3D Environment layer feature for the first time and when I enable it the layer I apply it to disappears. Does anyone know what I'm missing Also, does this work only with

I'm confused by this, since I have the same problem. That tutorial by Andrew Kramer is another great one! But it also shows him demonstrating making an environment layer as a background, no other laye
Tech Support?
by Tudor Applen 9 months ago
Hi. I need a little tech support regarding ProAnimator for After Effects 8.6.1. I've written four emails to support@zaxwerks.com and heard nothing back for days. You guys use to be Johnny on the Spot

Thanks Dewayne. I'm beginning to wonder and do feel a bit alone. Zaxwerks has always been super attentive and responsive. Now it's crickets. I'm a little worried about their status. Tudor Applen

So I have this ancient project from more than a decade ago. Back in 2009, I got dis-heartened and didn't complete a personal project despite a huge investment. Fast forward to now... My wife wants to

Thanks for the idea! I'm rummaging around for a compressor that will see these old DVCPro files (2004), but I'm having a little difficulty. Tudor Applen
Avid 6 into AE CS6

Hi. I'm trying to use the new Automatic Duck built into CS6 called simply "Pro Import". Both versions are new to me. I'm confused by all the new formats in Avid and in the field lately - I've been cod

I "fixed" this issue by checking the "Transcode Video To" box in the Avid Export using "AAF" and set it to 1:1 MXF. This solved the problem. But I don't really know what the consequences will be down

BCC5 for AE CS4 file errors

No resolution yet! They did suggest installing to the desktop and transfering the files manually, to the plug-in folders. Haven't tried that yet. Littlle faith in this prospect though.

Hi Tudor, You should make sure that the filters are in the CS4 MediaCore folder. IF they are not then, then you can manually move them into this folder and the filters should be available upon the nex

Thanks for responding. Blackmagic says I'd have to render in order to mix this codec with any others on the same timeline. Thanks again!
Laser beam, 2 points
by Tudor Applen 13 years ago
Hi. Need to fix one end of a laser beam, and animate the other along a path. Lightning is the only plug in I can think of that would let me do that easily, but it's lightning - probably too frenetic.

by Mylenium 14 years ago
If you join open ends in LL, you normally do not really connect the paths, just extend one of the paths. You would need to choose the overlapping vertices again and join them. Mylenium Pour Myl

Ok I got it you connected the endpoints to make a zig zagging z shape. Sounds like you may have. I hate to suggest stariting over, but it really is only 2 steps to recreate: Draw a vertical line Filte
