    You may need to add a Target effector and use Up-Vectors. this should fix the overlap problems. Also look into turning off the Align option and creating the rotation, scaling etc. with an additional step effector.

    Umm, you can re-use your layer as many times as you like. Just duplicate andd re-arrange the timeline stack, then use the corresponding matte modes. Should solve all your troubles without resorting to the Set Matte effect.

    [Dan Humphrey] “Does anyone know if there is a program that does a good job of simulating ink being dropped into water?”

    It’s called zoology store, the button you are looking for is called aquarium or watertank. ;o) In all seriousness, shoot it. Unless you need something extremely extravagant like the dancing orange juice from Aardmann animation, there is little or no point of even remotely thinking of messing with fluid dynamics. Lerning a 3D program alone would be much more complex and expensive than setting up a simple shoot (even if you have to buy the props and rent a camera).

    [Toddy the Aussie] “Yeah I was trying out Andrew’s iPod streaks tutorial as well and I tried to move some text [ on a 3d layer ] through the streaks, but it would not obey Z space?!”

    It does, but depending on what paramaters you use for the wiggle, there may be simply not enough separation between the particles to cater for that. Depending on what you are trying to do, you should consider getting rid of the wiggle entirely and animate the position by hand.

    Make sure you are not expanding the color levels. Use the techniques described in Aharon’s broadcast safe colors tute to bring them back to the proper ranges. Also tell your editress to import the stuff with the RGB color space settings, not the 601/709 ones.

    Indeed it does, I probably just don’t use Encore often enough to consider such minute details. ;o)

    [moldyboot] “however your particles will have the same color.”

    No, not necessarily. If you use the “Custom Colorize” method, each emitter will properly inherit the light’s color, which is more or less equal to using an extre tint/ fill. You just need to get away from replicating Andrew’s methodology 1:1.

    [Paul Whishaw]
    I am looking for some very cool Russian fonts but all I seem to be able to find are basic fonts that are kind of boring.”

    Umm, have you actually considered buying them? Pretty much every popular font these days is available with a cyrillic version or has cyrillic glyphs built-in if it’s OpenType. You won’t find good stuff for free, it’s as simple as that. There are too few Russian sci-fi series to create a fan crowd that will re-create the fonts. *lol* What are you specifically looking for?

    Use a Helix Spline and set your Cloner to object mode, referencing the soline. Gives you all the control you need by adjusting the Helix’ parameters.

    No. When you render Multipass, you have to render all passes you require. In your case you’d simply combine the diffuse and specular passes for instance (and all other passes you need of course). Unfortunately you can’t have one without the other.
