banding/tearing in pre-composed and collapsed layers.

hey guys,

I've got a ton of solids making a 3D shape, which is pre-composed and collapsed in the top layer so I can treat it like it's own 3D model. I'm getting a ton of banding and weird shearing... anyone know what's up?

hmmm. I know Alpha Add is supposed to fix visible edges. Plus a little interlace flicker blur effect too. and banding is color so try 16bpc in your project.

Thanks Chris,

I saw the alpha add on another post, but couldn't get it to work. I had great luck with this kind of stuff in CS4 (about the only thing I had great luck with in CS4) but maybe CS5 forgot to play nice with pre-composing. In CS4 sometimes you'd get this effect with DOF switched on...

what a pain. And here was me telling a client they I could do the whole job in AE and save them some money...

Here's a screen grab

its entirely possible that you have alpha issues. use alpha levels with both rgb to set full b/w and alpha to full white. I've had to use that plugin before to create mattes.

Hey Chris,

thanks for helping with this...

not sure what you mean... I'm sorry, i could just be blanking.

I am using masks to make those shapes on layers from illustrator.

Which plugin do you mean?
