flicker on edge of 3d layers
on Aug 15, 2010 at 4:25:33 pm

I'm in afx cs4, and I've made a "3d" cube out of 3d planes. I have a camera in the scene, and as it trucks in on this cube I get a sort of undulating flicker on the edges, where the 3d layers meet. Any ideas how I might fix this? The layers are .png's. Any help is much appreciated!

The Alpha Add blending mode helps to make seams between 3D layers more "solid". See the Alpha Add section on this page for an explanation.

Hey Todd,

thanks for your response. The cube is pre-comped in another composition with transformation collapsed. Where should I be changing the blending mode? If I do it in the original composition, it affects the appearance of my png`s, they turn white.

Ah, so the problem is between the screen and the chair ;)

Thanks Michael!
