• Hi! I'm trying the demo version and I just can tweak Orbit and Look at. The others options are greyed out. Why could this be?

    Thanks!

    Buy it,
  • This looks amazing and a must have (should have been part of AE a LONG time ago).  However, is there the possibility you will release a CS6-compatible version? 
  • I am confused about X Orbit. IF I do a complete rotation it seems as if the item flips and the camera turns back. Is that correct? The Y Orbit doesn't operate this way. Thanks for an explanation
  • It seems there's a bug regarding the Depth Of Field option. It doesn't work unless the Focus Point is set to zero (then everything is blurry).

    Hi Ignacio

    Those options are greyed out in the trial version but functional when registered.
  • Too many people these days are about as sharp as butter knives, so a statement should be included in the description by all authors whose demo versions are limited in functionality until the product is purchased and registered...There is a reason that there are books made for Dummies, so this one would read, "Trial Version Versus Registered Version For Dummies."

    Hi Hubert

    We have an update coming shortly for this. However if you send a message to [email protected] I can send you the pre-release version. 
  • Hello 

    Love this script, such a time saver. high recommended for anyone!
    I love how easy this works!

    I am having an issue.

    I have finished my project and want to send this to someone who dies not have the plugin. I click bake expressions and I get this pop up. 
    'Error: Couldn't find HandyCam Camera Click 'Setup' to create a new one'

    I then click setup. I then get a second handycam and the same problem cycles. Any suggestions? I need to get this project out to the client. 

    many thanks 


  • Hello,

    Thank you for this script which replaces very advantageously "Malty Simple Camera Rig". However, there was one function that was useful: the possibility of associating MaltyCameraRig with Andrew Kramer's SureTarget, which has some very useful functions and which are still unavailable in other scripts (I'm talking about target tracking). Is an implementation of these functions, or a possibility to mix the two scripts are considered.

    Thank you.
  • Hi Sebastien,

    Currently there are no plans to make HandyCam work with sure target, however we will definitely look into it more and see if it's an option.

    Kind regards,
    Matthew.

    Guess that's a "NO" ?

    Hey Tim, 

    Unfortunately HandyCam is not currently compatible with CS6, we're working on it but unfortunately CS6 has alot of missing API features that are required.

    Kind regards,
    Matthew.
  • Hi can you tell me how to switch "look at" targets as the camera animates to different locations? I need to focus on one thing then move and look at another and so on.

    Thanks!
  • Hi,
    it seems there is some issues with After Effects 2020, when I'm using HandyCam 1.1 (or previous version) - on macOS Mojave - it's very slow and takes 1 to 2 seconds to render the camera after any change.
    I tried into CC 2019 (version 16.1.3) and it's much faster... at the beginning, then it starts to slow down.
    Is there any update planned, or something to do to improve it ?
    Many thanks.

    Hi Sebastien

    Could you please submit a support ticket as that is definitely not intended behaviour! Thanks. 
  • seeing this on windows, unsure what i'm doing to to trigger it .. https://imgur.com/36zPvUL

    anyone encounter this? too nervous to use this if there's no fix or workaround. no pressure. thank you friends.
  • I have tried handycam and when I want to export with Encoder it is not possible, I get the following message: "the project could not be opened". Does this have a solution? I want to buy the plugin but I will not do it until there is a solution. I have After Effects and Encoder CC 2020 in Spanish.

    Hi Renato

    I believe this issue is with the most recent AME update from Adobe. Their advice has been to either download the public beta version or roll back one version. Let me know how you go and if you have any issues please open a ticket or contact [email protected]
  • Hello! It seems to me that this is the script I need.
    I need to make an animation by assigning targets to a camera to create an animation. Identical to what could be done with VideoCopilot's SureTarget plugin.
    Can this plugin do this?

    Hi Juan

    HandyCam works a bit differently to Sure Target. You can have a camera target in HandyCam but you can't tween between multiple targets in the same way. You can however move your single target to different locations to emulate the behaviour. I'd recommend downloading the free trial and seeing if it suits your purpose. 
  • hi I wanted to know if HANDYCAM also works with after effects 2021
  • Hi,

    great plugin, but it doesn't work properly with eg. Stardust, there is no Depth of Field possible - why?
    BEST
  • Hi,

    I love what you have done designing the controls.  Im having a big drop in performance when using the plugin compared to a basic camera setup.

    The frame rate drops by at least half with a basic 3d scene setup.

    Is there a stable afx version or setup you can advise?

    Cheers

    Hi Dan

    Have just responded to your ticket. Just putting this here for future reference if people are having frame rate drops, please check that the expressions engine is set to Javascript in the project settings as this will give a large boost in performance.
  • Hi

    Is this definitely compatible with AE 2021? The app used to install says only 2020
    and I am in crash hell, trying to figure out what the problem is. Thanks.
