simply trying to track to ends of the same object
by charlie hughes 6 years ago
For example, tracking a line from a point in a video to some info typography about the item. The puppet tool is glitchy as no other but I did a sloppy fix by connecting the position of two puppet poin

I'm not sure how complex the movement of your line is but there are expressions you can use on the line's path. But from what you've explained I'd probably go with 3D cam tracker manual Keyframing. Se
Are there parameter controls for a text layer's bounding box?
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
Are there parameter controls for the bounding box applied to a text layer If there is, it's not located in the text layer's twirl down. If you're wondering why I'd want parameter controls, it's becaus

Do we mean the same thing by "bounding box" - are you reffering to that rectangular thing with 8 control points and one anchor point that appears around any layer :)
Is there an equivalent of After Effects' "Live Update" option in C4D?
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
Does C4D have an equivalent option to After Effects' "Live Update", which allows the display of the entire scene to temporarily be viewed in wireframe, ONLY while adjusting an object's property parame

nothing automatic I am aware of (other than the setting for if the frames per second gets too low which is not what you want) but you can change display modes with a keyboard shortcut -- by default 'L

New to C4D, how can I create a text bounding box?
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
I'm fairly new to C4D (using R13, if it makes a difference). I'm trying to figure out how to make a text bounding box. If someone could tell me exactly how, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance

Yea, I have to admit I'm very surprised, but the Illustrator suggestion is great-- thanks for sharing, Jeremy.
Where to install third party Plugins/Generators/Object files on a Mac?
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
Hi, I'm new to C4D, and I can't find any info about where to install plugins, generators, or 3d objects I'm a Mac user; what folder do I copy paste to Also, if the third party plugin folder contains t
Re: Where to install third party Plugins/Generators/Object files on a Mac?

plugins almost always have a read me file which has instructions for installation but that's almost always to put it in the Plugin folder. Not many have textures but the few I've seen keep the texture

Still unable to render scenes with lights after 16 GB ram upgrade
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
I just upgraded to 16 GB on my macbook pro, and I'm seeing a huge improvement in speed performance. However I'm still unable to render out a Comp that contains lights. I'm trying to export a 10 second
Re: Still unable to render scenes with lights after 16 GB ram upgrade
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
Hi Brian, Thanks for your input, I'm not really using much effects- The collapsed precomps contain mainly shape layers, text, and 1 or 2 vector artwork layers. Almost all layers in the main comp have
Has anyone maxed out a MacBook Pro with 16GB ram?
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
As you know Apple will only upgrade MacBook Pros to 8GB but has anyone maxed out at 16 (which is possible aftermarket) Was it useful Did you see better performance in AE and other programs I've heard
Re: Has anyone maxed out a MacBook Pro with 16GB ram?
by Nurbek Sagynbaev 7 years ago
I have. Using my MB for After Effects and C4D mainly, I have yet to see major performance increase from 8GB. Perhaps it was already fast because of two SSD's. No issues with processor though. Would I

Does using a small masked area of a video the same as using the entire video, as far as rendering speed/performance goes?
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
In my timeline I have several duplicates of the same video, all in the same time frame. However each duplicate masks out a different area on the video. Does AE perform better than if each duplicate ha
Re: Does using a small masked area of a video the same as using the entire video, as far as rendering speed/performance goes?
by Dave LaRonde 7 years ago
I'm not sure if it affects render times. If the shot allows, you could try putting all the masks on the same layer for comparison. Just fool around with the mask modes until it's right. Dave LaRonde S
Why does my camera null move sometimes?
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
Sometime the null that I've parented the camera to moves as I change its position, rotation, etc. I'm not sure why how this is possible when my camera is parented to it. Any ideas on why this is happe

Does having many open comp tabs slow down AE?

Does having several open comp tabs slow down AE Also, does AE slow down the more files you import into a project
Re: Does having many open comp tabs slow down AE?
by Dave LaRonde 7 years ago
Sorry, but there is no standard answer to your question. There are too many factors involved: amount of memory, number & speed of processors, memory & processor allocations, size of layers, type of ef
Bcc8 text extruder not interacting w/ 3d layers?
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
First time using Bcc8 text extruder in AE cs5. Boris claims "precise interaction" with other 3D layers. But how about intersection I'm getting neither.. I've applied Text Extruder to a 2D solid, place
Re: Bcc8 text extruder not interacting w/ 3d layers?
by Maha Mohtaseb 7 years ago
Hi Peter, I found Echospace was no more of a time saver than manually duplicating the text layer several times in the precomp and spacing each duplicate 2.5 apart in Z then collapsing the precomp back
