I need to design a billboard and would like to use a 3d model from invigorator. Of course a static still image.
Thing is the Billboard size is very big of course.

How can I get the 3d logo on a billboard size (with some light effects) and export it with transparent background so I can load it in photo shop to ad to the billboard design. If I change composition settings will this kill me with rendering? Even tough there is no animation?

Hi Adeeb.

In After Effects, you can export a single frame in Photoshop format.
There are a few ways to do this, but I usually make my Comp have the length of a single frame and use the Render Queue options in order to export as a Photoshop Sequence.

Let us know if you have more questions.

Sorry I'm late to this party.. I use Invig a lot for large signs and billboard pieces. Your best bet is to create a smallish comp (say 640 x 480) in the aspect that you'll need it. One you get it perfect, save it. Now, make sure that you're in Draft Mode and change the comp size the the new huge size (6400 x 4800), select the Invig layer and Command-Shift-Y to call up the Layer settings. Then select 'Make Comp Size' to enlarge the layer (do NOT scale the layer)... Keep it in Draft mode (because it'll take forever to refresh) and export a frame. If you save the larger size, again, make sure you save it in Draft mode so it calls up quickly. Oh, by the way, they look GREAT in print!

Hope this helps,

kurt murphy
