New 4KAY Story Post: Autodesk Smoke: Better keys and more with Pixel Spread!

Hi All,

I have posted a new video to the 4Kay Story…..

Autodesk Smoke: Better keys and more with Pixel Spread!

Are you always fighting to get the perfect edges on your keys? In Autodesk Smoke, Pixel Spread is an interesting tool that can help fix these issues as well as be used in other technical and creative ways.

Pixel Spread is included in our FlameFX toolset, and is a great technical tool that allows you to address multiple issues. In this video I cover 4 typical scenarios for which Pixel Spread can be a major helper in your workflows:

1. Fixing bad edges on a key
2. Pixel based warping with a traveling alpha channel
3. Working with pre-multiplied graphics with CGI-compositing
4. Accurate pixel warping with a vector map (different from normal displacement)

Check it out at http://area.autodesk.com/blogs/discreetuk or my YouTube Channel - creativefinishing

There are many other uses of pixel spread, which I am still looking into, so I'll keep those for another video…
Remember that all of this technology is GPU accelerated so it is very fast and the results are clean and sharp.

I hope that you’ll enjoy using Pixel Spread as much as I did when making this video… It's really powerful!

Thanks again for all the feedback. Please keep it coming…

Have a great weekend!

Regards
Grant
