    Thank you

    Hi Lloyd,

    (as many other people have pointed out, it doesn't seem possible to add comments without logging in - even though I'm already logged in, so here goes):

    Your Render Frame at Markers AE script - do you have any plans to update it since variable length markers were introduced a couple of versions back? It'd be FANTASTIC to be able to set, for example, a 100 frame-long marker, then a couple of "normal" 1-frame markers, then a 200-frame-long marker, then run the script to queue a 100 frame QuickTime, two TIFFs and a 200 frame QuickTime.

    I'd be interested to hear your thoughts!

    Please simplify this plugin.  Would like to see a tutorial on how to zoom in on actual streets to make it look like "google earth" or something similar.  I'm a realtor and would love to buy this plugin and use it if I thought it would be helpful.  At this point, I don't know.

    I have been using your reposition anchor since AE 2016 and LOVE IT! -(and wrote about it on my blog as one of my favorite scripts!) Was wondering if the version you have up works with 2018? Or if you are planning an upgrade so I can purchase. The version I have --- not sure which I have -- doesn't seem to work with 2018.

    So question is, should I buy the current one you have listed or wait till you have a 2018 Version? THANKS!

    Hello. I cannot seem to post a comment as it tells me I need to log in, even though I am logged in. Anyway, I just installed the demo version of your 'Global Renamer' script on CC2018. It doesn't appear to be renaming anything. I set up a test comp with just a couple assets and when I used the script panel to rename them it did not do so. I tried a few of the object search types, text, layers, project panel items, and it didn't work with any of them. I notice CC2018 is not on the compatibility list. Is this the reason or should the script be working properly?

    Hi Lloyd,
    I'm having a problem with the customer service ticket, whenever I reply to your emails, it comes back with a notification that someone has posted an answer to my question with my email to you. 

    I need a new license key for the product I paid for, as the current one does not work. It's Puppet Tools 3. I downloaded the manager and it doesn't work for what I need. 

    Please look into this issue asap.

    I just purchased AE Global Renamer. Your demo videos show the dialog box already open, but I need help to get to that stage (experience AE user, but this is my first time adding a plugin).

    I've downloaded and unzipped the file, and it's in my Applications folder (El Capitan), and I'm using CC 2015.

    *What do I do next?* I can't seem to find information that covers this.

    (Note: I paid $1.00, but I will pay the remaining $24.00 once I've confirmed the product works.)

    I have been having issues with BG Renderer Pro ever since I upgraded to AE CC 2015 (13.5). Everytime I go to use BG Renderer Pro I get an error message that says, "It appears something might have gone wrong. Quit Terminal if it is running and please try again. Also check your directory path and project filename to make sure it doesn't contain any illegal characters such as: !"\<>/?:|&%" I have done everything I can to fix it on my end, but it continues to happen, even if directory path and project filename are correct. 

    Please help!
    Thank you!

      This is a known issue in cc2015 however it's just a harmless alert so simply ignore it.

    I don't can't seem to find any solution to my Ease and Wizz Problem posted last week with no response and other post i have seen on the forum with the same problem have no solutions?
    My Problem is the bounce and elastic do not show up at all and the out in the keys drop down is barley visiable.
    I have unzipped to Scripts UI Panel and the folder is there with elastic and bounce??
    PLEASE HELP!!!! I am on a tight deadline and really would help to have this working for me!
    Thanks very much for your time!

    Hi there, I just have a question, I have downloaded the plexus 2 as a trial version but my AE is crashing all the time, this is because is a demo mode ? if I buy it the problem will be fixed? if you can help me with that will be great..Thanks

    • Lloyd Alvarez

      No, the crash is probably related to something else not plexus. The paid version is the same as the trial version. If you need further help please open a support ticket http://aescripts.com/contact/

    Hello Lloyd,
    I'm new to using BG Renderer and need it for a very specific task.
    I need to render many image sequences locally and then copy them to a server.
    What would the command be to copy all the folders of image sequences?  Is that possible?

      Depends on whether you are on mac or windows: you use cp on osx: https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/cp.1.html and xcopy on windows: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/xcopy.mspx?mfr=true
    • Richard Sinti
      Richard Sinti
      Thanks, yes, from the tutorial video I saw that the copy command is cp (I'm on a mac) butI'm wondering what the next prompts are, so [outputFilePath] then I'm not sure how to tell it to copy the folder that contains all the image sequence folders so i get this error message:
      /Users/riccardo.sinti/Desktop/BG_Test/Comp_01/Comp_01_[#####].sgi: No such file or directory
      which I guess means that it is looking for a single frame called "Comp_01_[#####].sgi" which is what the render que calls the sequence before individual images are rendered into a folder.
      Does this make sense?
      Thanks for all the great help you have provided me over the years in one form or another.

    Hey Lloyd, I'm testing out BGrender and trying to get the most out of it. I'm currently working on a PC with 64GB ram and 20 cores and can only get it to render on 16cores. When I check the performance of each core, it seems that BGrenderer is only allocating around 1,5gb ram per core. Is there anyway to bump up the performance, or am I overlooking something. Thanks, James

    Hello Lloyd, usually your BG render Pro is a big help in my workflow but for the last 24 hours i have this problem I cannot get my head around. After launching BGrender Pro I read the usual lines but after Using DXGI: Device: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 has dedicated video RAM (mb): 2019aerender Error: After Effects error: Unable to call openfast because of parameter 1. Path is not valid. Path: B:\TLM\test.aep No matter where I save my AEproject file I keep getting this message I even replaced the BG script file inside the scripts folder in AE but upon relaunch I get the same problem. I do not know where the config info for the script is stored maybe I have to look there to find out more? What to do? Regards, Fred Kolman

    Hey! I bought your LCDEffect Script and I'm loving it so far! But there is one problem I have. Whenever I try to render something with your LCD script on, it looks like this: http://s7.directupload.net/file/d/3472/y8srd3kx_png.htm Just for comparison, normally it looks like this: http://s14.directupload.net/file/d/3472/6cytyw6l_png.htm I'm looking forward to hearing from you ;)

    I've tried several times to create a 3D box, but when I do as the demo shows I should do, the various sides of the box just get placed randomly in 3D space with none of the sides even close to touching each other. Any idea how to fix this issue. Thanks.
