Randall created a new topic ' Looping Generators' in the forum. 9 months ago

Finally took the time too find the loop time for a generator. Caustics loops at about 25 seconds and 4 frames when speed is set to 1. It's a weird number. I haven't tested other generators. Wish they would let you set a loop function on generators. OH well. Hope this helps peeps!

It’s at work for my employer. I’m not in front of the computer. Pretty sure it’s xeffects viral video, in the fxfactory shop

Anyone know how to unlock a motion template. I recently bought some templates and would like to add to the template but it’s locked.

It looked like google built the tools to work inside of after effects. I’m sure if enough demand was there they would do the same for motion. Tons of other companies do this with 3d camera exports, I don’t think this needs Apple maps or any of Apples input.

Randall created a new topic ' Publishing group/layer checkboxes to FCPX' in the forum. 2 years ago

There is a duplicate of this post in the regular forum, thats because I did the wrong one the first time. I wanted this to live here though, so I posted it again.

Since Motion 5 came out I have been having a hell of time dealing with publishing the checkboxes for layers or groups. The only way I could really do it was rig opacity on my groups and then publish the rig. Well, I found a way that you couldn't quite expect. I was trying to change the out point of a layer, so I figured I could maybe publish the Timing panel in the inspector. Well, you can publish it...but it doesn't publish what you would expect. You could think it would publish the timing pane, but instead it publishes a checkbox with the name of the item you are selected on. I was like...what?!?!? Could I finally have found the way to publish checkboxes....and indeed I did. Works on both layers and groups. Someone told me you could use snapshots to do something similar...but I could never get that to work. Anyways, let me know if any of you guys already knew this and if its helpful at all.

Sorry fcpx.guru, I know your a pro. I just didn't take the time to see who posted. Just kind of read it quick. Thanks for getting back with me about the PRO-level computer. Just wanted to get a quick update on that. I was really hoping for 32GB of Ram in the new MacBook, but alas....

1. Well, the new Apple file system will help copy files and probably just increase speed all around. I am sure this will help immensely.
2. HEVC (H.265) will become more standard in FCP, Compressor
3. Metal 2 will be HUGE. especially for Motion.
4. Final Cut pro will probably have better VR support coming
5.. Although not for every editor the linking between photos and Affinity photo and photoshop should be helpful

As for hardware. Is this the PRO apple mentioned a few months back? Because I know people screamed for an expandable computer; which the Thunderbolt 3 graphics card chassis they highlighted might do...but I still feel like this isn't what pros wanted. Someone weigh in please!

This is one of the things that gave Motion an edge over AE. I really hope Apple can show some love to Motion here at some point. I don't think you can do Dropzones in AE yet. Thats pretty standard for me when I make a template..

Randall replied to the topic 'Getting Rigs to publish multiple camera angles.' in the forum. 3 years ago

Thats not a bad option for turning layers on/off. Thanks for the link.

As for the animated camera thing, I just didn't know someone had already pointed that out. I just assumed no one did, since the Motion community is rather small. I did talk about other things like using Cinema 4D in motion, cloning layers for one image well in FCPX. So....there is some reason for the 25 minute length. I will try and make shorter next time.

I figured out a way to get different camera takes on a Motion Template inside of FCPX. Hope this helps anyone. Also found a way to get one drop zone for multiple different layers

Randall replied to the topic 'I really think Apple will launch a new Mac Pro' in the forum. 4 years ago

I think what a lot of people forget about the Mac Pro is that it is built entirely in the US. So they are able to keep a tight lid on any development they are doing for it. I do think they should come down with the price though after 2 years of the same machine.

Randall replied to the topic 'Pixar Textures in Motion' in the forum. 4 years ago

I've had the same problem. I tried relinking...but several problems happen. When I try to relink "Image Sequence" is greyed out; so its like its only looking for image sequences. And its look for tif files; not the .molo files that in the finder. I don't know where to go from here.

Randall created a new topic ' Motion dot whatever' in the forum. 4 years ago

Although I feel like talking about motion updates is a lot like a tree falling in the forest with no one to hear it; i still find a lot of things I want and dammit I will express.

1. Keynote has Contact Shadow. This needs to be in motion, working similar to how reflection does.

2. Keynote has a lot of build ins/build outs and some are actually pretty cool. These need to be similar to the preset word behaviors we have, but for anything.

3. Chart animations, like keynote!!! I don't know why we can't have a lot of that functionality as well as maybe some more advanced stuff.

Edit while importing
create proxies during import.
