  • I can work on after effects being coded by best practices and Media Encoder file

    I just found out that after effects files can be returned outside the program using the media encoder.  I had been made in after effects of .mov, then open the file in photoshop to render the .mov to a mp4.  Not the process faster, but it worked.  If I use media encoder to make my legacy model would still be able to work in AfterEffects and edit and save the file rendered in media encoding, or it is locked?  I hear also the media encoder is slower than the after effects encoder.  What are the best practices for a comp sequelae which makes a mp4 (h264)?  Thank you...

    Depending on what you do the SOUL can be slower than using index rendering, but that's the only thing that you must use to make H.264 files.

    When you send a model to the SOUL a virtual copy of this composition that is the source for this rendering. You can continue to work on the same computer and additional changes but if you want these changes appears you will need to send this model to the SOUL again after making the changes.

    Almost without exception, I'm working on plans not and certainly never movies sequences in After Effects. My average computer is probably seven seconds, my average film is probably 30 minutes so I use AE to work on plans for effects which cannot be treated in my NLE. I almost always send a model to the SOUL to render a h.264 or a suitable production master, or both, and then I continue working in AE because I can't afford to wait for a rendering time. On almost all of it is the more efficient workflow.

  • NetApp Best Practice and independent labels

    Hi, Best practices for VMware NetApp recommends, transitional and temporary data such as comments

    pagefile operating system, temporary files and swap files, must be moved to another disk virtual one

    different data store as snapshots of this type of data can consume a large amount of storage in a very short time

    high time due to the rate of change (that is, to create a data store dedicated to transitional and temporary for all VMS data without other types of data or VMDK residing on it).

    NetApp recommends also configure the VMDK residing in these stores data as "Independent persistent" disks in vCenter. Once configured, the transitional and temporary data VMDK will be excluded from the VMware vCenter snapshot and copy snapshot of NetApp initiated by SnapManager for Virtual Infrastructure.

    I would like to understand the impact of this best practice - can anyone advise on the following:

    • If the above is implemented:

      • Snapshots will work via vcenter?

      • Snapshots will work via the Netapp Snapmanager tool?

      • The snapsot includes all of VM disks? If this is not the case, what is the consequence of not having the whole picture of the VM?

      • The snapshot of vcenter can restore ok?

      • Netapp snapshot can restore ok?

    • What impact the foregoing has on the process of return if using a backup product that relies on snapshot technology?

    Thank you

    Hi Joe

    These recommendations is purely to save storage space when the replication or backup.

    For example, you can move your *.vswap (VM swap file) file to a different data store. NetBackup can do instant IVMS of the warehouses of data and with this configuration, you can exclude this particular data store

    This is also true if you create a data store dedicated for OS Swap files, mark independent so that vCenter not relieve these VMDK.

    I did a project with NetApp on boxes of SAP production

    We moved all the files in *.vswap to warehouses of data created and dedicated RDM for the OS Swap locations

    We actually used the SnapDrive one NetApp technology to suspend the DB SQL on the ROW before the ROW is broken, but I won't go into too much detail

    To answer your questions (see the comments in the quote)

      • The snapsot includes all of VM disks? If this is not the case, what is the consequence of not having the whole picture of the VM? -No. - *.vswap file is created when the VM is started (no need to backup)

    -OS Swap VMDK of location must be re-created in the case of restoration. WIndows will be

    always Prime if the Swap disk is missing, and you specify the new location of swap.

    • What impact the foregoing has on the process of return if using a backup product that relies on snapshot technology? -These backup products use vCenter snapshots and because the vCenter snapshots works 100% it shouldn't be a problem.

Anyone know where I can find information on best practices to upgrade and / or a document of instructions that will take me through the process? I had a glance on the VMWare Web site but cannot find anything.

    See you soon

  • What is Microsoft NET Framework programs and I can uninstall to get space, or are they important to the operating system and my pc works?

    Microsoft NET Framework programs are indicated with a number in the box sizes when I go to the dialog box to uninstall but I don't know what they are and as they have Microsoft and NET in the titles, I think twice about uninstalling to win space in case they are something important. I have no idea what it is, never use it and if I don't need it would uninstall but I'm not sure I should because it might be important and actually run in the background while I use the pc for other tasks. Someone knows and can explain what are these programs? I appreciate it and appreciate help for an admitted car computer illiterate full below all new novice owner, trying to get the hang of it, but I'm trying! Thank you!

    .NET framework components are required by many programs to work. They provide common functions for them.


    Why do you need to "save space"? Programs do not take a lot of space given the size of modern readers. The values shown in programs and features, are unfortunately often inaccurate.

    If you are new to computers, avoid changing the way Windows is set up. It's the surest way to cause you problems. Relax and enjoy using the programs you like instead of worrying about what's going on under the hood.

    Today, it happens again. Even after 700 MB + data. C one I ask you something? What kind of information you guys are install? without any notification? and where you install such thing? What is the purpose?

  • What are the best practices to install drivers for Windows 7-64 bit?

    I have HP Pavilion dv6-1115e laptop, which Windows Vista was the original OS. Recently I upgraded to Windows 7-64 bit version, but I still use pilots who originallay came for Windows Vista (no problem at all for the moment). Now I have thoughts of installing drivers that are specifically for Windows 7 64 bit to improve performance. So what I need to first uninstall each software driver and then install the new versions OR I can install them without deleting the previous versions? It would lead to a kind of shock?


    Normally you can just update the drivers without uninstalling existing, unless the installation instructions will tell you to do.

    Some driver packages will automatically uninstall the old drivers before installing new.

    More simply install on the current criteria. I rarely uninstall drivers before updating them.

    After you update a driver, you must always check the tab driver in the Device Manager for the device that you updated to ensure that the new driver installed. You can check this tab before update and then after you updated to note the date/version of the pilot before and the driver date and version later.

    If for some reason, there was no change, then I uninstall the current driver and try reinstalling the newest one.

    Others may have different opinions.

  • Web Viewer: Best practices and Limitations

    The opportunity to share our publication online via a web viewer is an asset to have. However, I noticed some blockages in two folios, we have made available online: videos suddenly stop playing; slow scrolling pages are not completely accessible to see; interactivity does not work in different browsers. I wonder if there is any documentation or advice to ensure a smoother experience across all display options.


    Thanks for the additional details. We look at the issues you reported and have a few comments.

    Here are a few quick notes for each of the elements.

    -Video suddenly stop playing.

    We had a new web viewer updated today, and this seems to have solved the problem with the video stopping on this article.

    http://ContentViewer.Adobe.com/s/Airman%20Magazine/c31b3f6bf51348f280a8bf8e57d33ee4/2013-0 6/7%20SUMMITS%20SIDEBAR.html

    In this article, there is a play button placed inside the OSM. ASM has been put to play as a slide show and the loop. It was originally an interaction with the video that caused it close. We have made some changes to the way video MSOs interact in this latest version, and that avoids this problem.

    Yet, in this case, apparently not necessary to use the DSO or even a button. For videos full screen like this, you can simply create the video overlay on the image of the button. With videos full screen, the area of overlay that you define behaves like a button "play" without you having to add explicitly one.

    -Scroll effect slow pages are not completely accessible for display

    We have also looked at this article and are able to reproduce the problem. As we develop a solution, we will work to get to a workaround to help you avoid this problem. We'll post here when we have some suggestions for you.

    -Interactivity does not work properly in different browsers

    We have experienced some problems with certain types of content in Internet Explorer. We are working on some improvements to help reduce these.

    I will address the two items that you referenced separately.

    -Multi-state objects does not properly

    There are some limitations with IE when it comes to the way it handles the interaction events. In this case, the layout of the content can be slightly adjusted to avoid this problem. I noticed that the positioning of several ESM is a little bit off.

    For example, the "VISUALS4" MSO is supposed to appear on the fourth page (index of the #3 page). However, if you look carefully at the InDesign file, you will see at the top of the OSM superimposed on the previous page of two pixels. As layering begins on the previous page, this is how it is rendered. Most modern browsers can handle this correctly, but it affects the stacking order in a way that causes a problem with IE.

    If you move all WHO the problem a few pixels to make sure that the upper part of the WHO is aligned with the top of the page, it should work properly in Internet Explorer.

    -Overlay of the play button has somehow to only changed the blue outline

    In reviewing the file folio for the article, it shows that the two States for the MSO play button use the same image.

    http://CDN-ContentViewer.Adobe.com/v/88e59469-94d0-4D3B-95cb-595c7d3a7944/7%20SUMMITS%20SI DEBAR/1/OverlayResources/InDesign_BNDLR_RSRC29936-633919858/Multi-state%2010_State%202_205 11_Content_L.png

    I don't know what the behavior planned for this MSO. It is configured as a slide-show mode that loops between the two States, once it is clicked. Because the OSM will be covered by the video full screen, which is the desired effect? Please explain what you want to achieve and we can provide suggestions.

    -No support for overlays

    On some browsers, including some versions of Internet Explorer, we support all interactive overlays. The screenshot you posted seems to be an overlay of imageSequence. This special overlay is not supported on some versions of Internet Explorer.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or encounter other problems. We will do our utmost to help.

  • Best practices and advice to help you need to create an animation


    I produce my first project in AE and came across this example which is similar to what I have need to be implemented in the project.


    (see 8 seconds in the video of imagespot)

    My scenario is that I need to portray a network of nodes that are all related (and possibly growing in number, network links and nodes flourishing points of spawn of other nodes describing the network is an infinite extensible entity).

    Could anyone suggest how I would create this, direct me to tutorials, or let me know what is the term for this kind of kinetic movement related?

    The important thing, I guess, is how to manage the efficient workflow. There must be a better way than the animation of 50 + nodes individually, also how better would be the network links that connect the nodes (as in the example), so that they follow the nodes where they (this movement can be random).

    Any help appreciated

    Thank you
