View Full Version : A Couple Of Questions

04-29-2005, 07:45 PM

I am using Vue D'espirit 4 and have a couple of questions.

Firstly, is it possible to do animated waves? I did a flybe of a rock in the sea and the waves just stayed in the same place?

Secondly, When I did my animation I selected mpeg2 as the output file type. I left all other settings at default. Problem is when I play the animation it looks awful, all jittery, like watching an old black and white film, flickery. Any idea why this is?

Thanks for your time.

You can animate water in Vue4, by making the water material an animated material. But you won't get crashing waves, just a movement in the water.

Thanks for the reply, do you know if Vue 5 does it? Or is it an effect not yet available?

v5I can create "real" ocean waves in animations but v5e cant, but you can of course fake crashing waves in stills in v5e (v4e can do it to).

as for animations make sure you render/save to an uncompressed format for best possible quality.
