CompiNg through the new yeaR


So as you can see teh compositing is moving along quite well... I should be finished the first week of 2011...then on to the edit...

I was originally planning on releasing a teaser trailer of some sort on Xmas but I've been so busy I haven't been able to work on it much besides a few brainstorming sessions before I go to sleP... since I didn't do the trailer I'm drawing lil Xmas messages for peeps instead...if you asked for an audio message I haven't forgotten! I'm going to send them after all the drawings are done...

On the tecH front: So some of my renders just fail....to render...after trying to isolate the causes to no avail I went back to the old last resort when rendering in AE... using the "secret" prefs to purge the memory every "1" frame.... I already had to turn off multiprocessing as it was causing errors even after I tested it with various memory settings... but in my experience if the comps won't render even with purging memory every frame your going to have to render it in pieces...which is a DRAG... so I don't care if it renders slower the way I'm doing it now...I just want it to render with no errors and it has been...

The other more heinous errors I was getting were from some conflicts with plugins I'm using and the Skydome script from Aescripts.com... its a great script...it just seems the massive precomps it creates cause reelsmart motion blur and a few other plugs to freak out and crash... SO what I do is pre-render the skydome backgrounds as quicktimes and bring those back into the comps which causes no proBs

So once all the comPs are done and rendered then I'll go through and watch them all and make note of any errors... then I'll fix and re-render any errors... THEN I'll import all the compD shots back into AE and render them out as mov's using the Photo Jpeg codec at %75... they are in the 10 bit rgb Sheer Video codec right now and those won't play back smoothly on my single sata drives as they require just a little too much throughput... so I'll cut offline with the Pjeg mov's....

  1. Damn I want your motivation. Not that I am not motivated, the dayjob is kindof a drag when you want to come home and spend 8 more hours making cool shit. Grats on your quick progress, can't wait to see the trailer.
