Plexus 2 scales when the camera gets close
on Jan 9, 2013 at 8:13:23 pm

Hi there everyone!

It's the first time I'm working with plexus in After Effects and I don't know how to solve this:

I have a comp with a camera and a solid with the plexus effect. The solid has the 3D layer option on.

When I bring the camera close to the solid, the plexus grows and surpasses the limits of the solid.

Is there any way to avoid the plexus from scaling when the camera gets close??

Thnks!! (n_n)

This is a known issue. You post your reports at aescripts.com. Of course do so on he Plexus2 page.

I just realized that you have the Plexus layer's 3D switch on the On position. I doubt if setting the layer to 2D will fix the issue but it's worth a shot and it's worth knowing that effects that work internally with AE's camera, ie most 3D effects, should be applied to 2D layers.

Having said that, it is quite alright to set such layers, layers with 3D/camera effects to 3D.

My scene is seted with different solids (containing plexus) at different distances. I want to make a camera path that goes through the plexus. I will switch on the field depth so the plexus get out of focus and stuff. I can't do that with the layer in 2D!!!

Any thoughts? :P
