Hello guys, I need help with one specific shot in my movie where we have moving candle that wasn´t lit because I wanted to add fire in post-production but there is problem with the motion tracker... It doesn´t track the movement of a candle very well and the mask that I parented later on which is fire and wick of candle jiggles around. Is there any way to track the movement any better?

Greg Olson of Videomaker recently hosted an instructional video on how to build an opening graphics using camera and expression in After Effects. I followed along and everything was working fine up until i rendered everything and I got the the following error:

"No active camera at time -, Expression disabled." And the scale expression was disabled for all the layers. Any help or advice greatly appreciated.

Hi, all,

We are video/film makers and as the workload has become bigger we are in need of a video editor. So far I have done everything myself (director, operator, editor, after effects, sound, color correction etc.) but this no longer works for us as we are growing.

     I'm working on a short film.  In this film, unfortunately, I have to do a lot of rotoscoping.  After Effects has a powerfull rotoscoping tool called the rotobrush.  I'm trying to create a mask around my subject, and put him in a different environment.  Without getting too specific into the details as to why, suffice it to say that I can't use a green screen for my certain situation.
