  • Hello MoDeck-Team,
    I tried to render an existing mogrt over your service.
    But nothing happens on my machine when I click render at the website.
    And if I try to start the Render-process from the app, I get an error that says "Error assembling aep".
    I'm on a MAC with macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 and After Effects 17.5.1 Build 47).
    Could you please give me an advice what to do?
    Kind regards

    Hi Nico,

    Thanks for reaching out, this may be a compatibility issue with Big Sur, could you please open the app, go into app settings then click "submit error logs" at the bottom, I'll work to get an update out to support Big Sur shortly, the app should auto-update once I've released that, and I will contact you once it's up

    Many thanks,

    Hi there,

    The desktop app has been updated to address rendering inconsistencies on macOS, your app should automatically update, please give me a shout if you experience any issues

  • Hi Steve,

    Got a question about Modeck, the link for embedding the editor and the rendering of output.

    As elearning designer/developer i use Instructure's Canvas for the universities i work for ( https://www.lmspulse.com/2021/how-to-install-canvas-lms/ )
    Teachers create knowledge clips on a regular basis and upload them to the LMS.

    Could it work if i get an Enterprise account adding an embedded editor on the LMS ( CanvasLMS ) to make Mogrts that then will be editable by teachers?
    And the second question i have is...how will those Mogrts be rendered? Do they render on my local machine and then pushed to the editor for download ? And about rendering... when using the online editor.... do i need to have AE open for rendering..
    I use AfterCodecs and BG Renderer Max. Does it work with these plugins or only with Media Encoder ?
    Can they be embedded directly in the LMS? Or will the teacher/editor of the Mogrt get a downloadable file they have to embed or upload ?

    Kind regards,

    Hi Math,

    I'm not entirely familiar with how CanvasLMS works but as long as you're able to embed html/iframe content then you should be able to embed the MoDeck editor, it will render on the pc running the desktop app and send the rendered video back to the editor page where you should be able to view/download it through that embedded page, currently it just renders with Encoder, this may be expanded in the future.

    What I can do is provide you with a trial enterprise subscription so you can try things out and see if it works and makes sense for you, register an account at modeck.io, then send me an email at [email protected] and let me know what email address you signed up with and I'll enable temporary enterprise features for you to trial

    Kind regards,
    Steve
  • Hi Steve, sounds like a plan. Let me spend the weekend to get some sample AE Mogrts ready and then apply for an Enterprise trial so i can test it on Canvas.

    Kind regards,
    Math
  • Hi Steve,

    Wondering about the enterprise plan:

    I understand that with this subscription I'm able to create a 'magic links' that will apply on a per-video basis to be able to share with collaborators, but will it also enable those users to have the rendered video sent to their unique email (different from my email as the MoDeck account holder)? 

    Let me know, and thank you in advance! MoDeck is an amazing idea.

    Hi Lochlan,

    So when generating a magic link with the desktop app, you can set an email address and name associated with that link, any videos rendered via that link will be sent to the associated email address, meaning you can create seperate links to give to each of your users, each link would have that users email address associated with it

    Hope this helps,
    Steve

    Hi again Steve,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    I wonder if there might be the possibility of adding this capability in future versions— to simply allow users to enter their own emails at the point of editing so that I can share 1 link to multiple people and have them all receive their own respective edits (starting from the same base template provided by me) to their own respective emails. I know in my case this is what I'm looking to do as it would speed up the process with my teammates, and so they know the moment they've received the edit. I do know that we can simply share a Dropbox folder, but I feel that email would just make it that much simpler.

    Just a thought! Thank you for all your hard work on this.

  • looked like a very nice concept and workflow, but when i tested it, i was a very disappointed.. 
    the main problem is one has to work 'blind'. while adjusting parameters and text, it's impossible to see what you are doing. 
    not even a still. and the preview takes ages to render... 
    sorry. i am looking for something like this, but this won't do. 
    maybe in next versions. 
    please let me know when your app does offer realtime view of the project, with a timeline to scroll through :)

    Hi there,

    Sorry you found it disappointing, did you try enabling the background AE? The AE icon on the top right of the app indicates whether the background instance of AE is running, it will be teal if running, you can go into settings and enable "Run background AE instance" or click that icon to enable it, with that running then preview rendering is near real-time as it keeps an instance of AE running behind the scenes to instantly render preiews etc. On MacOS it may also prompt you to enter your password, just to allow it to install a hidden extension on AE which the app uses to communicate with AE

    Let me know if this is not working correctly, I would love to determine what may be going wrong and correct it. I have plans to soon provide a tab at the top of the mogrt browser section on the editor to switch this section between showing all mogrts and showing a preview, so that you can make adjustments to options and see the changes near instantly reflected to the right

    Thanks for your feedback, the platform is still growing and will hopefully soon allow for clearer visual feedback

    Hi there,

    Just a quick update on this; I've now released an update that includes improvements to the previewing experience, editors online will now be able to scrub through preview frames by hovering over mogrts on the timeline (for mogrts with multiple preview frames defined), and previews are now updated every time an option is changed, there is now also 2 tabs above the mogrt browser panel so you can switch this panel to show the preview, allowing you to see your changes as you're editing options

    Just be sure to define which frames to send as previews by adding the modk-previewFrame command to your mogrts (add command multiple times for however many frames you would like to send for previews)

    Also be sure to enable the app setting "Run background AE instance" and previews will be rendered significantly faster

    Hope you find this useful!
