Am I doing something WRONG?!
Can’t see this quiz either… Oh man, this sucks
I acknowledge that you took this quiz… but that/s about all. You scored 53.33%
thanks AE TUTS, i could have done better, learn something new again
2 mistakes. Question 13 and 15. Question 13 – I simply didn’t know, but question 15 – wanted to be too fast. Made a typo :-( 86.67%
#3 is iffy. I don’t know a single AE user who uses OpenGL at render time. It’s perpetuating the urban legend that OpenGL super accelerates renders. (It doesn’t)
#15 has two correct answers. If you don’t have a layer selected, you can press “*” on the numeric pad and you will get a comp marker.
Just did the test and got 100%!
Well, you’re absolutely right. In fact I keep adding comp markers this way for ages. When you do something, you simply do it and don’t think about it. So in fact I made only one mistake. It gives me 93.33%. :-)
I agree with Navarro about #3. I’d far sooner use BG Render than use OpenGL to accelerate a render.
Regarding #1: Ask Dan where he gets his information. ;-)
I make the quiz based of what I’ve been taught or learned… this OpenGL was what I was taught so we’ll leave that one as extra credit. :)
You should ask for a refund from whoever taught you to use OpenGL to speed up rendering.
Wouldn’t whoever wrote the after effects scripting language be the ‘king of expressions’?
Question 3 says there are no 3D Masks in AE. If I set a Layer to 3D and give it a mask, this mask will react correct in a perspective way to the 3D camera. To me that should be defined as a 3D mask!
Yup, you can’t define it as a 3D Mask from the start, but if the layer is set to 3D the mask behaves as one. So i guess the “set 3d layer etc…” answer isn’t necessarily wrong.
Just an opinion….you can separate dimensions of a light and set a wiggle for the x and the y position…the error is that it isn’t a plug-in? That’s my only error but i use separate dimension all the time instead of creating an array…i think that the problem is my bad english!
By the way…i usually set comp markers with the “*” too…as said if you don’t have any layer selected you can set in this way comp’s markers! I like this kind of tests! Great job!
It’s funny that everyone ignored my comment :p LOL (the freakin’ 1st one XD)
Is it a members thing? If yes, WHY?!
If not, WHY THE F-PWWIUUUUTT CAN’T I SEE ANY QUIZ ON THIS PAGE?
Could’nt see the first one either…
Hope someone helps me out… AE-quizes are cool (if you can find them :p)
try a different browser or a different computer…. it isn’t premium only.
@ Adam: ty for replying :)
Now, where’s my laptop? …
I don’t really agree with the last answer.. With no layer selected, you can add a composition marker with the ” * “-key on the numeric pad as well as hitting the shift+0-9 keys, except, that the others have numbers in their description! I picked the ” * “-Key option and that that caused me not having 100% :(
I/ve seen better, but pretty good job! You scored 86.67%
No professional after effects user would EVER use opengl.. it makes garbage renders and doesn’t do anything faster.
80 %, not too bad :)
