    ... [Moderated content]

    As you didn't specify why you were doing it, I gave you one way to achieve a perfect end result and another way to replicate multiple exposures along the "tunnel" wall. ...

    Both things had to happen. If the background didn't travel during the move, then the slot would just be a thin static image, and all that would be written onto the tube walls would be long stripes...

    There's a great story from 2001 where the guy doing it spent forever on a sequence and then on frame 800 or something lost track of whether he'd already given the projected image handle an...

    I haz thinked.

    Either...

    Make your slit be a model of just the slit itself and nothing else. Luminous and with the texture mapped to move through it.

    or...

    Fix up all the "unseen by"...
  5. Gah. I'm now actually looking at the scene I...

    Gah.

    I'm now actually looking at the scene I uploaded and everything I've said so far has been wrong. At some point I must have decided that projecting textures onto the walls at angles was a...
  6. Yeah, I think this was what caused me to stop and...

    Yeah, I think this was what caused me to stop and think about what the end result really is. The camera movement causes the shape of the slit at the "bottom" to, in effect, draw out an accurate (but...

    Can't offer immediate help. I only have LW installed on an old box now.

    However. Many years ago, a peripheral acquaintance asked me if I would do free VFX for a fan film he was going to make. ...

    That's entirely fair, given that Facefook is an enemy of civilised society.

    Ugh. Don't thank me yet. I've just re-read what I'd written and it's... well... it's wrong. (I really have to stop posting late at night.)

    Unfortunately I don't even have LW installed now so I...

    You are correct. I am a horse's as$. Sorry Mr Rid.

    Stick a null on the path (make a null and copy your car's path onto it) and in its Motion Options, under the Rotation tab, set its Heading Controller to Align to Path. There are some options for the...

    It's probably buffers and data for the new render engine.

    In V-Ray you can choose between two sampling engines: progressive and bucket. Bucket rendering takes a small amount of ram (only renders...

    I was not comparing it to LW. LW was not even lurking on the periphery of that bit of discussion. (Do you honestly think I consider LW to be a strong competitor for C4D in 2018? I don't even use...

    This amazes me. Slightly.

    C4D doesn't have anything specific that would recommend it above anything else for making anime (at least not that I know of?) but it's reliable, it's easy to learn and...

    What d'you mean? Has Nuke lost a lot of users? More info please?

    Also, if PSoft ports Pencil+ to modo then modo will immediately look a lot more enticing for anime. Pencil+ is very expensive...

    Cardboard's "Text editing trick" works just fine. I've used it in production dozens (if not actually hundreds) of times.

    The only thing that might make it not work is if they've done weird things...

    I don't have LW 2018 so if that's what you're using this might not work.

    Make a copy of your .lws scene file.

    I'll say that again; MAKE A SAFE COPY

    And again; MAKE A SAFE COPY

    I walked away from LW after more than twenty years specifically because the developers think that more nodal workflows is the way forward. I know another person who's recently done the same thing...

    Does it only understand weights in the original lwo format? When did lwo2 happen? (LW 7?) Maybe something changed about how weights are stored in the lwo format. All I can think of is to try...

    I just wanted to say that I agree with pretty much everything you've said. Also, I too would be much ruder about it, but everybody seems to be happy, and I don't think there would be any point.

    I shout at people in here every so often, and I'm rude to people I think are being imbecilic more often than that. And yet nobody has ever banned me.

    There's a lot of leeway in this forum for...

    Last Jedi is much worse in that regard.


    But merchandise.
