Add a layer to another composition?

Am I missing something really obvious here? I have Comp1 with a layer called Layer1. I wan't to add that layer to Comp2. Is there no add command for this? The only thing I'm finding is copyToComp, which works for what I need, but it feels like there would be another way?

White balance using kelvin degrees expression?

I have a render from 3d that has been rendered in 3200K, but should be at 5600K. I can try to set the white balance be adjusting a levels effect or use any of the auto white balance effects, but it would be really nice to have a levels (or any other) effect hooked up using expressions to a slider wh...

Convert x/y position data to camera rotation?

I'm trying to convert x/y position data to a nodal camera pan/tilt movement. Anyone have a suggestion how to do it? Feels like you should be able to hook up the cameras rotation to a null with some kind of expression as long is the camera is only rotating, not translating.

Re: UI layout question

Thanks Paul, that worked perfectly :). Not sure what you did though, I guess it's kind of nesting groups, since you have the main grops orientation set to row.

UI layout question

Trying to put together a simple UI, but it's givinig me problems. I want the "Render" button to be in the same line as the first objects, but alligned to the right instead of the left. See attached images. If I add the render button to a separate group, it shows up below everything else, which isn't...

AE to Nuke and Nuke to AE transform data

Is anyone else here using Nuke as well as After Effects? I do it all the time and I alway find myself wanting to move transform data between the two applications. It would be super cool if we could have a dialog box in After Effects where you could paste Nuke keyframes data and it would convert it t...

Re: CS5 Dropdownlist issues/warning

Does anyone have a workaround for this? I get this problem that if I press the dropdownlist when the boundries are to small, the scripts stops working. I have to close the UI and relaunch the script to get it to work. Anyone else have this problem?

Re: AE_submitToRush

Did you change the path to the Rush submit script? If not, just change the line that says:

Code: Select all

Volumes/misc/rushscripts/submit-afterfx.pl
to the correct path for your sysyem.

Re: Problem with render queue and start time span

Thank you Paul, it's a hack, but it a usable workaround. A lot better than having users see the warning. Wouldn't have found this solution by myself, this forum is a great resource. Still I think it should work with just setting the timeSpanStart to frame 200 and it should be there no matter what th...

Re: Problem with render queue and start time span

Hi Paul, thanks for your reply and thanks for the method of converting frames to seconds. Hadn't thought of that. However, it's still not working for me. This is what I do. - Create a new composition with the display start time of 200 (first frame is 200). - Create a new layer and add timecode effec...

Everything seems to work without any problem if the composition start time is set to 0. But If I have the start time of the composition set to somethin...

Creating an importable image without rendering?

With text files it's easy to create a new file and write something into it, for example: var document = new File("~/Desktop/test.txt"); if(!document.exists){ document.open("w"); document.write("Text."); document.close(); } I want to create a jpeg (or any still image) that I can import into After Eff...

Re: Placeholder for a not yet created file?

Yeah, I have been playing with a simular idea where a new render replaces the temp files. But then they would need to have the exact same names, and wouldn't that be very hard to get working? The actual names wouldn't be a problem as I could just rename them as the output filename in the render que,...

Placeholder for a not yet created file?

I'm trying to write a script that works with our render farm and it's going quite good after reading a lot of posts on this forum. But now I'm stuck on something. I want the rendered out file to be imported back into the project, just like when using Post Render Actions in the Output settings. But I...
