Re: Particles not rendering

AH! I just remembered how those opacity keyframes got it there. and it's another thing I couldn't figure out. What I wanted was for those sparks to fade out rather than disappear instantly. I couldn't figure out how to make each particle fade out after it was generated. I thought that might be it, b...

Re: Super fast playback bug

Yeah ok. Since it's so intermittent, I'll just replace my mp3 with the original wav and then work a few days to see if that's it. In fact, what I'll do is tell Siri to remind me to report back in a week or so because if it hasn't happened I'm going to forget otherwise. so if I haven't posted in this...

Re: Particles not rendering

Thank you!! Toldja it was something dumb. I have no idea what step I took that made those keyframes. Oh well. Thanks again.

Re: Particles not rendering

Here it is. I've removed everything but the particle layer. Problem persists, probably something dumb.

Re: Super fast playback bug

Hmmm... a lot to think about here. Let me tell you something about the current project. While I'm not importing movies, most of the project is made up of imported images, mostly PNGs. No image sequences. Think comic book set to music, so the majority of the time I'm showing still images, often in sw...

Re: Super fast playback bug

Wow! Disabling Frame Skipping really mucked it up. Lots of hangs and audio problems right away. That's not it! Also, for the sake of completeness, oftentimes the double speed playback does not happen when I first hit Play, but a second or two after. So it plays normal for about a second, then sudden...

Particles not rendering

I have a particle layer which looks great when working on the movie, but when I export the animation, I could see exactly 1 particle one time, and no other particles rendered at all. So because I do see one particle briefly I know it's not like it thinks it's not supposed to render at all (such as i...

Re: Adjustable timeline bars

That works to a point, but it assumes there are clear visual cues for the beats, which isn’t always the case. A click track in place of the actual score would fix that, but it still doesn’t help when using cycles, and there’s a lot going on in the score which inspires animation ideas, so I need to h...

Re: Adjustable timeline bars

Yeah, that's it. I've been adding or skipping frames like you said all along, but if you have cycles going, you can't do that. The video below is the last time I'll ever compose at a tempo that can't be divisible by 24 frames. You can see some cycles in there in the second half, or at least, potenti...

Unclickable layer

To make subtitles that are easy to work with I've created a long document with all the subtitles for the scene, saved as an image, and I simply scroll it up using Step interpolation, with an invisible mask to cover titles that have already appeared. This way all my subtitles are in a single manageab...

Adjustable timeline bars

I am animating to music I am composing. The music comes first, and then I build the animation. A lot of stuff needs to happen on beats in these movies. I've discovered that it's a PITA to make things happen right on beats when the bpm of the music isn't easily divisible by 24 fps. (Cycles, for examp...

Re: Super fast playback bug

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. A few clarifications: This happens on any project of any level of complexity. In fact, since my projects usually take a few weeks to finish, I could claim that at some time or other it happens on EVERY project. Just a simple SPACEBAR tap will cause it, no ren...

Super fast playback bug

This happens to me constantly, and wondering if it's a known bug or if there's something I'm doing to cause it. It's very simple: Playback (video only) plays at about double speed often. I just stop and restart playback and then it usually plays back normally. Sometimes it plays back double speed a ...

Re: Cycling switch group does not render

not bad suggestions at all, in fact, they (sort of) solved the problem. I'm good now. However, what turned out to be happening was something else weird: 1. Noticed the action to rifle through the switch group in cycle wasn't in the timeline at all. That's funny, coulda sworn... 2. Added it. 3. Playb...
