Re: Trim layers based on Opacity - save a lot of render time

Hi again,

I'm using your script on a project that's been made by three different people. The problem I have is that the script runs on every layer and I have some layers for wich I want to control the outpoint. Is it difficult to have the script run only on selected layers ?

Thanks,

Salvador

Re: Trim layers based on Opacity - save a lot of render time

Thanks.
Everything works fine now. I was trying to understand your script and couldn't understand that line.

Now antoher (stupid ?) question : does AE calculate 3d layers that are not in the field of view, for example layers behind the camera as it moves ?

Re: Trim layers based on Opacity - save a lot of render time

Hi,

Thank you very much.
I get an error on line 55

Code: Select all

var show = curLayer.opacity.valueAtTime(t,false);
error message is : Unable to call "valueAtTime" because of parameter 1. Value is undefined.

Am I doing something wrong ?

Re: Trim layers based on Opacity - save a lot of render time

I know that if the layer drops the opacity to zero, and then raises again, the script would not notice that (the way it is written now), and will only trim the begining and end areas where the opacity is zero. It will not trim the middle area, and AE will render that area unnecessarily... Is that w...

Re: Trim layers based on Opacity - save a lot of render time

I'm using a Tint effect because I don't want the layers to become transparent as they go far from the camera, but to be affected by a "depth fog" simulated with the tint effect wich is linked to the background's color. I managed to use your script by adding the same expression I use for the tint to ...

Re: Trim layers based on Opacity - save a lot of render time

Thanks for the answers. I'll give it a try tomorrow. I guess this can't be a dynamic thing like an expression ?

Re: Trim layers based on Opacity - save a lot of render time

Hi, I'm trying your script but with a tweak : I don't want to trim the layers according to the layer's opacity but according to a percentage of a tint effect value. I've change two lines in the script from : if (curLayer.opacity.valueAtTime(t,false)>0) to if (curLayer.effect("Tint")("Map White To")....

Hi Paul, This is very good news. It will give us a lot more flexibility. As soon as I'm back to my office I'll give your script a try with C4D 10. It seems that the exact same reasons brought us to C4D. I remember trying to do the same thing with 3DSMax and discovering that orientation and rotation ...

I'm trying your script and it seem quite usefull but I use expressions and the default AE is set to french, so expression don't work. Where do I modify your script to tell him to launch english version of AE ?

Thanks,

Script modified : compify to 720x576 PAL settings

Hi, Thanks for this script. I currently need to output tons of files into 720x576 DV/PAL comps so I've slightly modified the script to output it correctly. *** EDIT : I've seen the original script from Byron Nash and it exactly does what I've modified, so, if this script isn't helpful, let me know a...

By the way, nab, do you mind if I share what's said here with members from AE list and FrenchC4D ? Of course I'll always mention who's done what.

Hi nab (enfin salut), Thanks, With your script I managed to export both Position and POI with these little modifications (my first script editing !!!!) : { var myComp = app.project.activeItem; var myLayer = myComp.selectedLayers[0]; var myFileName = myComp.name + "_" + myLayer.name + "_position.txt"...

Yes, the idea is to write a coffee script in C4D. But to be honest, so far, I've only used simple expressions in AE and simple Xpresso in C4D. From AE to C4D by hand works quite well but it's not really fast : export data from AE, format it for C4D (this part involves a spreadsheet editor to invert ...
