Re: James Bond Car Chase

Sorry, didn't intend to be rude. :oops: From your pics posted on 2/15, I like the top one the best. Adding the rotor wash to the road helps with the sense of action. You might try using the liquify tool in photoshop to create the effect of hot exhaust coming out the back of the heli. Looking forward...

Re: James Bond Car Chase

This is super stuff! Sorry if this is a repeat question, I clicked through the whole thread quickly looking for the answer but I didn't see it discussed; Did you use a UV Mapping program to texture the road, rocks, heli etc or did you use the standard TS uv tools? Also, is there a clever trick for m...

(Right click on "look ahead" and look for the dialog box that pops up) Tension...degree to which the object attempts to follow its original orientation long the pat...

Re: Best video output

Thanks Prodigy. I will try to re-render my current project using TGA format for the numbered stills instead of tiff. Maybe using tiff's is part of my problem.

I did switch the video settings to progressive which gave me slightly better results.

Best video output

Anyone have any recommendations for outputting video. I guess I'm as interested in your overall work-flow as I am specifics. Right now I render my animation as numbered tiff files in their own folder. Then I use an old copy of Adobe Premier Pro to mix/edit/add audio and titles etc. After I'm happy w...

Re: Best Practices for using the Bridge

Kind of a dumb question, but when you are working in WS and you go to save your scene, do you save as the old .scn (you can do that from WS right?) or the new WS side format .rsScn...or whatever it is? Reason I ask is I recall reading somewhere that saving in the old format made things more stable.....

Re: display options

I still want the lights to affect the scene and any renders, I just want to make it so you don't see them in the 3D window (what you called the "general window") I do this in model space so I don't accidentally select/move/rotate them. When I want to adjust them, add more, or delete them then I go t...
