    Awesome. Thanks for the tip and for the scene file.

    I actually had this thought as well, but the problem I was encountering was getting the orientation of the different paths that are sweeping along the spline to line up properly. For some reason, when I tried it, the path that forms the sweep “object” and the path that sweeps the face “texture” don’t line up properly, and getting them to do so is a matter of guesswork and never quite looks perfect.

    Any recommendations for setting up both paths so that when I sweep them along the spline, they line up properly?

    Thanks!

    Well that makes me feel like an idiot. Thanks for helping me realize how simple it was! I was prepared to do an intensive study on expressions to limit the values of hue/sat, etc.

    Guess it’s a case for the adage of “Keep it Simple, Stupid.”

    Thanks a million.

    Awesome! Thank you!

    Any idea how to make the line more “organic?” For example, as the mic head rounds a corner, the spline moves with the momentum slightly and then settles into place. I want it to feel more organic and not so rigid.

    I am guessing there is some way to do this with spline dynamics, but I am not familiar enough with them in order to pull this off.

    BTW, I am in R11.5 XL bundle.

    Thanks,

    or this.

    Didn’t write it. Please consider this credit to whomever posted it here on CC forums. It saved my butt and can save yours too:

    //begin code

    startTime =5.25; //seconds
    endTime = 6.5; //seconds
    beginCount = 0.00;
    endCount = 68493;
    hasCommas = true;
    //–dont modify below here—————-
    function addCommas ( s ){
    if( s.length <= 3 ) return s; else return s.substring(0 , 3) + "," + addCommas(s.substring(3, s.length)); } function reverse( s ){ newStr = ""; for(i = s.length-1; i >= 0; i–)
    newStr += s.charAt(i)
    return newStr;
    }

    val = Math.round (linear(time, startTime, endTime, beginCount, endCount) );
    if( hasCommas )
    reverse (addCommas(reverse( val + “” )))
    else
    val

    //end code

    I’ve downloaded the updates, and it hasn’t done anythign to alleviate the problem. Any other suggestions? It seems like it is a RAM issue of sorts, so I am wondering if the Disable VM-Buffering plug-in I’ve installed to utilize the 4.5 gigs of ram is somehow messing with it. If anyone has any solutions, I would GREATLY appreciate it!

    Thanks,

    With any tool. Paintbrush, eraser, extract filter, etc.

    9.02 update for photoshop or the tablet?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I played around with the write-on effect, and couldn’t quite nail down how to use it. Any good tutorials out there that demonstrate how to use it?

    thanks,

    I’ve personally captured footage 60 Min. in length, without a single problem from my XL2. I’ve done it several times, and each time there has been no problem.

    I assume that seasoned professionals like yourselves have gone in and made sure the Audio mode on the XL2 is 16-bit, not 12-bit. I believe the XL@ comes with 16-bit as the default, but I could be wrong. This tiny little setting has caused many-a-problem for me in the past. A rookie mistake and a braindead solution, but it’s always worth double-checking.

    I am using a quad G5 2.5 GHZ with 4.5 GB of Ram… FCP 5.

    It sounds like it is in 4:3 when you are hoping for it to be in 16:9… This may sound brain-dead, but did you film in 16:9?

    Hmm… so neither camera is working across three seperate PC’s, each using the same firewire cards in each machine… To me, it sounds like it is a capture issue within Premiere. (I assume that is what you are using to capture the footage.)

    Premiere can be a nasty bugger with firewire and DV cameras at times. I used to use Premiere Pro 1.5 on my old PC, and it was always kind of a crapshoot to see if my camera would connect. If you could give me the current settings you have within premiere for your capture settings, it’d be a great help. I might be way off the mark here, but I think it’s worth looking in to. (you’d think the default settings would work just fine… not always.)

    The other issue is that it could be SP2. Service Pack 2 did all kinds of crazy things… My installation of After Effects would no longer work after updating to SP2… So, I feel your pain.

    Hopefully we can work it out.
