AutoDesk Smoke :: Smoke And Sub-blacks / Super-whites

Feb 26, 2013

Is there any way that Smoke can see/output sub-blacks and super whites? Can't find any way of seeing them on my scope, Smoke just clamps everything. It won't even see anything below zero in order for me to make a correction on it, everything seems to be clamped on import. I'm using ProRes HQ footage.

Photoshop :: How To Check Brightest Whites 240 And Blacks 30

May 6, 2011

I am doing a product shot, and the company's spec sheet advises that the brightest (or maybe lightest??) whites be 240, and the blacks around 30. I think this has something to do with levels, and not having blown-out whites or clipped blacks, but how do I check that those are the levels in my final proofs?

AutoDesk Smoke :: Selections In Smoke As In Combustion?

Jul 10, 2012

Does Smoke have selection functionality similar to that of Combustion? As an example, you might want to selectively blur part of an image. In Combustion, you would draw a selection and then apply an operator above the selection to achieve this. I don't see a similar selection tool function in Smoke, but I imagine you could achieve the same effect by duplicating a layer and using a Gmask via the Wipe timeline FX.does Smoke not have a selection tool similar to Combustion?

AutoDesk Smoke :: Importing And Using Alpha Channels In Autodesk

Oct 2, 2012

I am experimenting with Smoke 2013 pre-trial and I am having issues with importing images and video with alpha channels.

1. If I have a layered Photoshop file or png with an alpha channel (a still frame lower third), I see that I can import it as a multi layered clip, but what is the best way to have it in the sequence to show up properly?

2. If I have a QuickTime in animation format or Pro Res4444 format with an embedded alpha, how can I import that file to show and cut it on a top layer to animate above my video?

AutoDesk Smoke :: EXR Look Different On Import

Nov 14, 2011

I have RED footage which I exported as EXR. When I import them back in, they look exactly like the RED footage. But when I import the EXR in Fusion, export it back out, and then import that EXR into Smoke, it looks brighter, although I didn't change anything in Fusion. (when I compare the EXR from Smoke and the EXR from fusion in my finder on my desktop, they look exactly the same). So what is Smoke doing with the "foreign" exr on import?I was also playing with the LUT settings. I get a result which is close, but I need to be exact.

AutoDesk Smoke :: HD To SD Down-conversion?

Jun 4, 2011

What is the best way to downconvert 5D HD to SD?

I converted the h.264 files to uncompressed 10bit. Bringing in the footage and XML was fine, but as soon as I resize to PAL (the timeline was changed to PAL, as was the output on the AJA) the picture starts anti aliasing in detail areas. I have processed this with every filter in Smoke with no satisfactory result.

AutoDesk Smoke :: How To Import XML

Jul 7, 2013

I am having issues for a long time regarding importing XML into smoke 2013. Will try and explain you in breif.
First When we try an import XML into smoke it just doesnt do anything, in the message history box it comes up saying FOUND 0 SOURCES.
Nothing gets imported at all. No footage is imported, nothing is shown in timeline as well.
Second For a different project when the XML does get imported, the videos get imported but then again nothing is coming up in the timeline and in the message history box we get the following error.
XML Validation Failed.

Cannot process unliked media.
we have checked all the import options to make this work, including max up level and the rest but nothing is working.

AutoDesk Smoke :: Better Interactivity In CFX?

Aug 16, 2013

I must have changed a setting because today my interactivity in CFX has taken a hit, specifically when making Axis moves. The move doesnt register until after I have made a change in the Axis field.
I know there is a setting for this but cannot remember. Am not having the same issue grabbing Axis in viewer.

AutoDesk Smoke :: How To Conform XML From FCP 7

Jun 7, 2012

I'm currently trying to conform an XML from FCP 7 into Smoke 2012 (Linux). The issue I have is that the files I want to conform with are MFX, however the files used in the FCP timeline are PRORES, therefore have a '.mov' extension. This means the Smoke is not seeing the MXF files due to the extension & the only way around it I have found, is to edit all of the '.mov' extensions to '.mxf' extensions in the actual XML. This works well, but is a complete nightmare, particularly as I'll have to do this for 13 half hour episodes!!!!

I have tried all the different combinations of Filename, Timecode, Tape, etc, but none work due to other metadata issues from the filming of the footage to it being delivered to our edit suites!!!!

Any way of making the Smoke ignore the file extension?

AutoDesk Smoke :: Can't Scroll Through Clip

May 12, 2011

All of a sudden, I'm unable to scroll through clips with real time feedback. Did I turn on some preference?

Also, I've noticed that when I'm in Action, I don't get realtime feedback going to the broadcast monitor, but rather the image catches up upon pen up. I don't see anything about it in the options in Action or global preferences.

AutoDesk Smoke :: Output Resolution Of The CFX

Dec 6, 2012

When applying CFX to the clip it ignores resolution of the project and the time line and creates a resolution of the whole CFX based on clip.

In other words 1080 clip in 720 timeline creates CFX with 1080 out node, ( all action creates in 1080 swell) and only then send 1080 output to timeline where it applying resize soft effect. I know i can change resolution of action, but a can't change resolution of output node ( the las node that feeds output to timeline.) Is there an easy way to work around to feed lets say 720 to escape resizing in timeline.

AutoDesk Smoke :: Access Timeline Within CFX

Nov 3, 2012

Is there a way to access the timeline within CFX ( much like in Flame ) ? I see the timing button but this doesn't seem to have the same control as a timeline for a specific clip.

Also, is there a way other then "explode one" or "explode all" to go within a CFX within a CFX ( pre comp ) ? i.e. a setup that is then put within the BG of action.

AutoDesk Smoke :: Refreshing In Mediahub

Nov 26, 2012

I find the need to keep manually refreshing directory listings to be kind of retro. Would it be possible to add a preference to auto-refresh after each export. Its very disconcerting in this day and age to export a file and not see it listed without additional manual interaction.

Also I find it a bit odd that the GUI refers to File Sequence not Image sequence but i can live with that if I don't have to keep refreshing.
