Does action / multitrack work in smoke on mac?

Hi there.

I've been trying to use Action with option "multitrack" instead of front / back / matte. Is this supported in smoke on mac at all? I tried taking a multitrack clip onto the desktop and using that, and clicking on multiple layers in the timeline and in all cases I get an error "invalid multitrack format".

anyone know whats happening?

many thanks

sure you can - if i remeber right, you would need a multitrack TL with alternating front/matte tracks + a background track
in practice its simpler to use F/B/M - with CTRL you can select multiple Front/mattes & after releasing CTRL you select the back + destination.

Select your trakcs in your timeline and hit SPACEBAR + . (extract)
this will make you layered timleine into a mutlitrack clip.

Then you can load in to Action.

Thanks that did the trick. I thought selecting all the segments and then hitting F creates a multitrack... but I guess thats not a "REAL" multitrack even though it has all the layers when you drop it back down???

I was hoping that when you went into action with a multitrack it would translate the axis and color corrects from the timeline and apply them on each layer. Nope, guess that what they want you to pay the extra big bucks for smoke advanced and BFX ....
