Been trying HLS PP Editor since it was released. I really like the convenience of having to see the different effects that you can make with the Editor. But there one big problem that I am encountering. Not getting the same effect that i see in the animation window and playing it in the Editor.

18157

In the image above you can see the spiral effect that I want to use which is not so complicated which i produced by animation.

18158

In the image above you can see the red highlighted portion, should be what i see in the whole effect when you 'play' the effect in the editor. The blue highlighted portion is the one that i can't figure out. Try different settings, but to no avail still getting the same results.

18159

In the above image, getting the same result in the 'preview' as the one in the Editor.

Please, can somebody tell me what is wrong why I am not getting the same effect when you're doing it in the animation window and play it in the editor and the preview.

Thanks a lot.

When you tell HLS to Create the effect - you get exactly what is in the animation screen during frame execution.

Looking at your pictures - I see bleed through from the lights in the rear of the tree.

Both the animation view and the Preview view are 3D images of the tree but shown as 2D from slightly different camera angles - they WILL appear different especially where rear lights are relative to the front lights.

HLS is designed to light your REAL tree (in this case) - where you can walk around the tree and see all sides and easily distinguish lights in front from lights in the rear.

The 2D views (animation and Preview) are just that - 2D views of a 3D object --- look carefully.

Thanks Joe for your quick reply. To better understand my problem is, i made a vertical matrix effect where you can see clearly.

First pic, shows the effect when you played the effect; second one, shows the effect as animation.

Is this a bug or my computer?

Thanks

Don't know what to tell you.

Tried it on my computer and it works perfectly.

Thanks. One question, did you sequenced your effects of the megatree in the PP editor?

Thanks Joe.

Will try to use another computer with higher specs than mine and let's see what will be the outcome. BTW, i used Nutcracker effects in the PP and i had good results.

Joe, I made a crude video of the effects spiral, vertical bar, horizontal bar, and snow. Got good results using the latest offering of HLS 12R. The snow effect is still the same result like before. Still using the same computer.

Thanks and will play some more with your latest offerings. Sorry for the crude video, still trying to learn to make screen captured video.

I was just in a hurry to make the preview after seeing it (effects) in the editor. Just happy that at last after so many trials at least I am getting some good results from the latest version.

Thanks for the comment. BTW, I've seen your effects in Nutcracker123.com, you make nice ones. Tried some in HLS and it is really cool. Not having problem pasting Nutcracker effects to PP Editor.
