Serge Hamads Film strip Zaxwerks Invigorator Tutorial
on Aug 24, 2006 at 5:07:38 pm

Hi there,
I have just completed your Film strip tutorial and have a few problems.

1, I had problems importing the illustrator file. (I had weird spikes all appears over the place)

2, I can see the outline of the 3D curve before the strip appears (I cant see this on yours)

3, I cant seem to create shadows.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks Very Much.

Martyn

Hi Martyn,


1- Do you have the problems with the provided file? If so what version of Invigorator are you using?
If you are having this issue with your own IL file, try not to draw too sharp curves to avoid the spikes.
You could also use the spikesbuster in the Set-Up window right under the Depth slider.

2- Just uncheck the Front and Back faces of your object.

3- Invigorator doesn't cast shadows on other AE layers. You need to include your BG for instance as an object in Invigorator or apply a drop shadow effect to your Invigorator layer as I did in the example.

let me know if you need more help.

Salut.
Serge

Hi Serge,
thanks for the rapid reply!
The Tutorial project I downloaded works fine, the problems arise when I try to recreate.

I am using Zaxwerks Invigorator for AE V4.0.6 Pro.

The Front and Back are uncheck as described in the tutorial.

Also I have crated a back ground but still cant see those shadows.

Thanks again,

Martyn.

Hi Martyn,

First, please download the latest version of Invigorator as 4.0.6 had a couple of bugs.

The best would be you send me your project & your ai file. I don't need the media files.
serge_01 at msn dot com

I will then be able to guide you through your project.

Salut.
Serge

Hi serge,
I have just up dated the Plug in to 4.0.8 and remade the project and it seems to work fine now.

Im still working on the lights and camera and may have to come back for some advice if thats ok.

Thanks once again for your help.

Martyn.
