    I am not sure what you mean by superwhite but i know there is a gamma shift problem with quicktime when you are rendering out videos… check out Andrew Kramer’s post here:

    To tell you the truth I think there is just a lot of photoshop or scanned in hand animation done.

    Except for the face and maybe some of the shots with the jeans and hoodie… looks like they just took every 7 or 8 frames and held them until 7 or 8 frames ahead of that and stuck a sketch filter or something in Photoshop on those still frames.

    That way it could give an animated feel with the frame by frame look, but also give you all the details of her face and such.

    And I think the backgrounds are an obvious answer… hahaha

    Toph.

    Which Effect are you referring to? because (if I am not mistaken) some of the effects shown require #D applications.

    If you have the documentation for the ProAnimator plugin, it should tell you that you drag the entire folder into the Plugins directory…

    If that doesn’t work… I’m stumped.

    [Jan Sherlink] “I think you won’t get what you want for 1700dollar.
    For a dual processor+dualcore you would need a high-end motherboard, Xeon processors ,ECC-Ram (8GB will cost quite a lot), and a good power supply.
    What machine are you running on now and what speedincrease do you expect ? A Quadcore can perform as good as 2 dualcore…
    Working SD or HD ?

    cya,”

    Right now I have an early dual core system that i got around 3 years ago… before the Core2Duo’s came out. i have 4x1gb sticks of RAM and dual 2.6 Pentium D’s Not sure what the motherboard is… I bought it for school before I was into After Effects, when I was working in Avid doing only editing.

    I just need something that is going to be able to handle HD footage within After Effects, that I can run high end AE projects on. I know I am going to need the 8GB of RAM and at least a quadcore.. I just dont know which brands are cheaper…

    I mean like I said, I am going to have some more money coming my way from my existing computer, once I can sell it.

    Reason I ask, is a power surge fried one of my computers and im gettin 1700 bucks back from insurance for it to buy a new one.

    When I think build in, I think that if you had buildings in the background, and benches and those kinds of things, I guess that you could make a basic Matte painting and then with everything removed and animate masks of objects you have placed in the scene build or grow… but that is a lot of rotoscoping…

    hmmm it seems that if you really want to sell the effect, I would shoot it green screen to have a clean background, track it so that everything moves correctly, and have the first set of background elements “unbuild”, and have the individual elements in the background of the second set grow or build into the scene.

    Thats just the way that I would do it.

    Good luck… it sounds like an awesome effect…
