Imported alembic selection/ textures?
by Tim Vining 2 months ago

Okay, thanks! I'll look into it.
Bake particles, then move?
by Tim Vining 1 year ago
This seems like it should be simple, but I can't seem to figure it. I have a cone of animating particles from emitter with the particles being "sucked into" an attractor, but I want to be able to move

Can't open FCP Trial 10.2.3
by Tim Vining 9 months ago
I need the FCP 10.2.3 Trial to update some old FCP files. I downloaded the 10.2.3 Trial, but when I try to open it, it says the trial has "Expired" and that I must buy FCP on the App Store, but when I

I don't remember running it on that computer, since I have owned FCP for years, but I guess it's possible. I will contact Apple Support like you suggest. Thanks!
Connector object--how to control?
by Tim Vining 11 months ago
Hi, I'm using a connector object to add secondary motion to a dangling object, but it's swinging too much. I have just a connector between a single collision object and single dynamic object, on Movin

Thanks, Brian! I think this really points me in the right direction. My first test looks better already.
Surface Constraint/Clamp, with rotation?
by Tim Vining 10 months ago
I am trying to constrain a simple object A to a point on the surface of another object B. I am able to Constraint Clamp the object A to a point selection on object B, and the clamped object A moves ba
Re: Surface Constraint/Clamp, with rotation?
by Tim Vining 10 months ago
Okay, thanks. Parent, from what I can tell, will only parent to the entire object, since the target won't accept a point selection. I was able to clone my object to a point using Mograph, which is kin
Copy & paste dynamic objects to new file?
by Tim Vining 12 months ago
I built a dynamic object in a file with a few objects that I intended to then copy over into a more complicated "main" file, but I can't seem to get the dynamics over to the new file. I tried copying,
Color smoke alpha--edges look black?
by Tim Vining 2 years ago

Animating layers inside imported Photoshop file--timing/markers?
by Tim Vining 2 years ago
I'm trying to manipulate some layers inside an imported Photoshop file in FCPX, but the problem I'm having is once inside the Photoshop compound clip, I can't see what is going on in the outside world

Great--thanks!
Is there a way to see items outside/overhanging the edges of the viewer?
by Tim Vining 2 years ago
Is there a way to see items dragged outside or overhanging the borders of the viewer I'm moving part of an image "offscreen" but I'd like to see the part that is offscreen while I am working with it.
Re: Is there a way to see items outside/overhanging the edges of the viewer?
by Tim Vining 2 years ago
Okay, thanks--bit of a drag. It seems like this should be a toggle on off item, and not really that complicated to implement.
Image mask changes size when applied??
by Tim Vining 3 years ago
I've been banging my head against this for two days: I have an animated object clip that I created a greyscale clip for to use as a mask image to give the clip translucent areas using the Image Mask.
Re: Image mask changes size when applied??
by Tim Vining 3 years ago
That did it--thanks! I put the greyscale above the image, and I used Stencil Luma Blend Mode, since I wanted to use the lights darks for opacity. You are a life saver!
Compression for "original" video files for editing?
by Tim Vining 12 years ago
I need advice on what to tell my clients to send me in terms of files types & compression settings when it comes to sending me video files. I'm generally editing in Final Cut Pro on a Mac at 320x240 s

Thanks, Rafael. I'll give that a try. Is there a recommended audio compression setting you would recommend --Tim
Lost audio after about a minute in .mov export??
by Tim Vining 13 years ago
I suddenly have a problem when I export my project to an uncompressed QT .mov file, the video plays fine when I play the .mov file, but the audio cuts out completely after about a minute. Any ideas Th
Re: Lost audio after about a minute in .mov export??
by Jeremy Garchow 13 years ago
Sorry to ask the obvious, but what does your audio do in the timeline after 1 minute If it plays, then I would trash all of your audio render files and try exporting again. Jeremy
