Hi there,

You know, AE lights just don't look as good as the lights within ProAninimator!

I have searced the posts here and as of 2007, ProAnimator still does not support that feature. Does it now (and i just don't see it in the manual) or is it on the horizon?

Thanks!

MIKE

Hi Mike.

The Parallel Lights in AE should work the same as the internal lights in ProAnimator.
Additionally, you can use the other light types that AE offers to light the PA scene.
Inside PA, only the default set of non-animatable parallel lights are supported.

Can you tell us what you mean by "don't look as good?" I'd like to see what differences you're seeing.

Thanks.

By 'don't look as good' I mean that when i Rotate light one or light two around the glove in PA, the object looks really cool and shiney.

In AE, I have been using the spot light. Not parallel. This may be my problem. The AE lights were making the object look like a glowing, flat, two dimensional object.

I don't want to animate the object. I am just trying to make a gold logo that shimmers once. Maybe sparkles, but that's asking a lot.

I'll try parallel lights this afternoon.
