Hi,
I would like to know if anyone here is using Toast 18 Pro for burning CD's & DVD's using OS Mojave since it's 64bit software only? I asked Chat and they stated no but, I thought it was introduced before Catalina. If you are using it, I'd also like to know what your experience is with it. I'm on a 2016 15" MacBook Pro running OS Mojave 10.14.6. I haven't switched to Catalina due to the need of converting ton's of older video formats. I'm not dead set on Toast if there's better software available. Your help and advice would be most appreciated. Thank you, Ray

I have had terrible luck with the Pixel Studios product. It has been incredibly buggy and the only documentation they were able to provide for how to use it was a 5 minute very high level video. I took the recommendation of someone else in this chat and purchased the motionVFX product, it is significantly better!

I totally agree, I took a chance and purchased FCPX Maps 1.1 from Pixel Studio's. After hours with them on the phone and having access to my computer, they still couldn't fix the problem they have with FCPX Maps 1.1. They finally stated back in August tyhat they need to update it. Guess what?? No updste as of yet and they're still selling the same exact one. Never again with this company for me. Happy New Year to you and your's!! Ray :)

Motion should work just fine. If you want a car to be animated along the motion path you could just use a clipart automobile.

Thanks for the help....... Ray :)

What you're trying to do is just way to easy to do manually, anyway. Just do it in Motion manually.

Pixel Film Studios is pretty awesome. They've always been extremely helpful to me whenever I had an issue. One issue I had where a plug-in wouldn't work on my weak Mac Pro Trash Can. They fully refunded me without much hassle.

Glad you had a good experience....... After researching the internet, it seems that you are the exception to what I've read. After viewing FCPX Maps 1.1 video by Pixel Film Studios, it appears to be what I'm looking for, but all I see is negative reviews. Thanks for chiming in, I appreciate your input. Ray

I don't recommend Pixel film studio. Not the best company
Motion VFX is way better as a company.

But I haven't used or tried the software mentioned by Thinkfilm.

Thank you for your advise....... Ray

Depending on what particular map/travel animation you are looking for, you may want to check out mTravel ( www.motionvfx.com/store,mtravel,p2190.html?q=mTravel) and mTravel 2 (www.motionvfx.com/store,mtravel-2,p2664.html?q=mTravel) by motionVFX. I have mTravel and it works flawlessly. motionVFX has great support too.

Of course, you can roll your own and Mark Spencer has a good tutorial for doing that in Motion youtu.be/ot6GK8wPuns

Thank you for the links! I looked at their videos which looks impressive. I sent them the following email asking them a few questions in regards to their tutorial below;
1) In your tutorial, the generated route moves from start to finish ahead of the drop zone. Can the drop zone be used at the head of the route line during animation?
2) Can the Start and Finish text and Start and Finish icons be turned off. In some situations, I wouldn't want them visible.
3) I like the fact that route lines can be changed by using B-Spline, Bezier, Linear. I have some routes that may need more than 15 points. Is there a way to increase that number to further my route precisely?
4) Can a drop zone be added for example at the beginning and the end of the created route animation? If so, can it be adjusted from small view to full screen view? 5) Are there any plans for 3D type animation?

Hi,
I'm looking for the best map animator for FCPX. I came across FCPX Maps 1.1 by Pixel Film Studios (below). This appears to be what I'm looking for but, I only could find a couple reviews which stated that it freezes and is hard to use. I took a trip through several states along Route 66 and would like to animate the trip along the roads I took with video. If you know of a great map animator plugin, please let me know. If you have used the one I mentioned, please let me know your thoughts as well. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks, Ray

Thank you for understanding........ Even more so, thank you for all the great links. I will definitely take a look at all of them for use. This software certainly would be of great use. Thanks again, I sincerely appreciate it. Ray :)joema wrote:

Mistakes like this are easy to make if manually tallying space consumption. There are lots of available tools to streamline this. DaisyDisk is popular: daisydiskapp.com

However I like the free column-oriented OmniDisk Sweeper: www.omnigroup.com/more/

Another space consumption task is finding and removing duplicate files. For this I used Gemini 2: macpaw.com/gemini

For comparing files and folders, I use Beyond Compare: www.scootersoftware.com

I screwed up......... I went through my Pegasus once again this afternoon. I counted two different folders "previously" at 5.12 GB it should have been <b>5.12 TB</b> My stupidity........ :dry: Those two folders consists of 4K media along with a ton of other media from over the years. I must have done a backup of a backup. Now...... If any of you were close, I'd back up so you could kick me in the ......... Sorry ........ Ray :blush:
