Render will not fit inside frame !? Weird problem. Deadline approaching!
on Feb 19, 2015 at 11:05:12 am

Hello,

I have been animating a light wall which consists of roughly 400 light bulbs flashing randomly. The composition looks like this:

I did this by applying the Optical Flares plugin to a solid; using hundreds of lights to transmit it. However, when I come to render, the output always looks like this:

While the resolution remains the same (3280x1200), all the content seems to have expanded, and now cropping out the lights closest to the edge of the frame. I have tried adding/removing a camera and nothing changes..

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks for reading,

Stanley

Are you looking through a camera other than the active camera in your viewer panel?

No, no cameras. I have the view sent to front...

That's the problem. Front view is orthographic; it does not show any effect of perspective. However, while Ae will preview an orthographic view, it does not render them.

What you are seeing in your render is the light wall through the default camera. Setting your view to "Active Camera" will let you see what will render.

To simulate a perspective-less front view, you can create a camera that's very far away and zoomed very far in.
