Hello Brian

thx for the Lightgrid script (and update). Fits exactly what I needed.
I tried to make it work with Trapcode Lux today and I don not manage to get any volumetric light from the lightgrid lights.
Any suggestions?
Thx
Jan

Sorry about that, I should have mentioned the version limitation in the tutorial. Thanks.

I've just done a quick conversion to CS5.

No circle or point lights, just spot lights.

If you'd want here is the script: 7630_cs5lightgrid.zip

Hello Brian,

Thank you for the conversion.
I tested it and it works.

Kind regards,

Yes, the script only works with CS 5.5 and above. Adobe included the ability to address different light types after CS5.

I am using AE CS5 version and I get an error when running the script.

"Unable to execute script at line 6. LightType is undefined"

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

Want to learn how to create advanced visual effects? Learn how to use mocha AE to track your shot and add advanced visual effects to live action footage inside Adobe After Effects. mocha can help you track shots that would be hard to track using traditional 2D point or feature trackers because it is a PLANAR TRACKER. A planar tracker uses planes and textures to track as opposed to points or groups of pixels. This allows the tracker to stay on track even if your shot contains motion blur or a very shallow depth of field. mocha AE comes included with Adobe After Effects and is available since CS3 and there is no reason for you not to use this awesome tool to make it easier for you to track your shot, replace screens or rotoscope!
