For some reason, when i’m browsing a users profile, i can no longer list items based on price anymore.

This as well a constant amount of other ‘little’ changes (background colour, changes to Earnings panel view) have started to become really irritating of late. Not to mention these badges which are perhaps really poorly designed and difficult to know what they are without rolling your mouseover.

Why does envato have to always f**k with the programme?

Ever heard of the expression:

’’If it ain’t broke …’

After applying a 8-bit effect you will get brightness values clipped to 1. It ruins all the light effects such as glow, motion blur of bright lights etc.

If 16-bit is Heaven, 32-bit is the Outer Space! )

Thanks guys. That’s really answered my question. I too have noticed the clipping errors with Glows after applying an 8 bit effect….

ANd so, will work in 8 bit, render in 16. (well said Kosmos)

I’m not ready to go into Outer Space just yet (...although my next project is about OuterSpace)_

Okay, but things get complicated if your effect is on an an adjustment layer?

Thanks Creattive.

What about CC Force Motion Blur which is an 8 bit effect. Will it cause any problems if i’m rendering in 16 bit (or even 32 bit?)

Does this really matter? what are the implications of say, using an 8bit plug-in like CC Light Rays, when you want to render a video project in 16 bits to reduce banding?

...Yes i know it frees up your computer to do other things After Effects wise, and it can email you when done, or text you, and i’m sure it can even make you a cup of tea if you are nice…

But that’s not the question…

My question is:

Pound for pound, is BG Renderer (Pro) quicker than rendering in AE? If i am away from my computer for 4 hours, would BG Render quicker than just the normal After Effects Render?

Thanks
