    congratulations mate.

    The best advice I can give you is if you don’t know something, just ask. There’s nothing more infuriating than a new guy struggling or doing things wrong because they are too worried to ask. More than likely your new teammates will be more than happy to help you out.

    With regards to the remote role, I’ve done it and it’s harder than in a studio I think, make sure you separate work and not work, communicate often with teammates, have a good chair, plenty of natural light, get a backup disk with a battery back up, back up often!

    Good luck buddy

    I just had a quick look, and you can set a custom particle in CC Particle World effect. change particle to Textured square for example and then input a logo file/precomp.

    I will leave it to you to figure out the ‘particulars’ of how to use it though! I’m pretty sure it’ll do a lot of what trapcode will do.

    Good luck!

    I think you might be able to use particle playground to do this, but I have never tried. I use and would use, trapcode particular. very easy to set up a custom particle, simply precomp a logo layer, keeping the dimensions small, such as 50×50 or 100×100 or similar. then change the particle type to texture and link it up. there are also a few presets for confetti-type sims within the plug in to save you time.

    has the model been UV’d at all? if not the texture projection will be hit and miss. you could try a cubic projection.

    if you can get away with not seeing where the tape lands, you can just use an emitter rocking back and forth and then trace/connect the particles into a spline. If you have the see it land, that is a bit trickier, maybe fake it, draw out the full spline by hand then animate a sweep, then use effectors to give it some life? good luck!

    Go at this kind of thing logically, trust me it’s going to happen your whole career.

    Have you changed anything in the PSD?

    Does the PSD open in photoshop?

    Is the copy of AE you have legit?

    Have you updated to the latest version?

    Have you purged your memory/cache?

    Any other issues with AE?

    Any other issues with your mac?

    either animate a black bar scaling on x in a precomp, then animate the precomp moving on x and duplicate, or, animate a black bar scaling on x and use the repeater and animate offset?

    Hi Rob,

    Sorry, I should have said, no, only one of the units has a USB-c neither have a thunderbolt.

    I think my only hope in this regard is to either swap the graphics cards for 3090s (if they do really exist) and free up some space for a new network card, or maybe get a new case/ motherboard.

    Thank you for all your input, i hope one day to get a handle on all this network stuff!

    Thanks, Rob, much of this is what I thought.

    Both PCs have Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9900X CPU @ 3.50GHz 3.50 GHz.

    Yes unfortunately I’m unable to put 10Gbps cards in as there’s no room, too many graphics cards! A real shame since we have a 10gig switch and cabling already installed (for the editor’s Mac systems)

    Thanks for your help mate.

    Oh no, I’ve been on R20 for a while now, and just paid for a subscription now. So ill look forward to my head exploding when I open that for the first time! (only moving from octane V4 to 2020 today too, so should be a fun week!)

    Yer perhaps german, or maybe a dev who hates me!😁
