I've uploaded a project that I finished a while ago. It's an open for a union builders association which used Invig for the models, but AE's camera and lights. It consists of 3 separate Invig layers - one for each scaffold. The reason that I had to use 3 layer is that I had 11 animated sets (the 2 moving video layers, the word 'our' and the letters of 'building'...and invig allows 8. This also allowed me to use a gaussian blur instead of using a depth of field to ease my render times. And speaking of easing render times... the final :25 animation took 39 hours(!) to render on a dual 1 gig with 750 megs allotted to it. And it was a BEAR to work on near the end; I had to wait 2-3 minutes every time I moved or selected something. That being said... it's still the greatest plug-in EVER. It's a 7 meg file - The link is at: http://www.pawsforeffect.com/zax_scaffold.mov

Very nice work... love the depth of field effect/blur as we fly through each layer of scaffolding. Despite the size of the movie, the download was speedy on my cable modem. You must have a pretty fast host server.

Very nice work. I really like the light and camera moves. I have a few questions...
What other plug-ins did you use?
How long did it take you to complete the entire project (without rendering time)?
If you don't mind to tell us...how much did you charge for it? do you think the compensation you got was the real value of time, creation, and work involved on it?
P.S. I ask those questions because they are issues I encounter on every project, and I'd like to know if other creators go through the same. Your answers could help us a lot to understand and have a better approach to future clients and projects.
If you wish you colud send me a message at the address above. Good Work!!!
