    Hello there
    I recently upgraded to the macbook pro 15inch retina 2015 with AMD Radeon R9 M370X graphics card & I am looking to use Trapcode MIR 2.0 for my motion graphics.
    I thought I’d first try out the trial version to see how I’d like it, but it;s hard to have any appreciation when the trial software seems to overwork my CPU over 100% and in turn makes my computer uncontrollable hot and loud XC.

    Has anyone else experienced this & have any ideas as to how to resolve this?

  3. Hello. I’ve upgraded to pluraleyes 4 but im finding it far less accurate than 3.5. I had a sequence that i tried multiple times to sync in ver.4 only to consistently fail after changing all sorts of variables, in the end the best i could manage was about 40% accuracy on the sync. Where as the same exact sequence pushed through ver 3.5 yielded results more around the 98% mark. In this case ver 4 has been a massive step back to the point of un-usable. I feel the option allowing or disallowing changing of clip order has been detrimental, as sometimes like in a low budget studio shoot you know what order things were done at, and when pluraleyes mucks up that order and doesn’t even get the syncing done, its a nightmare to try and fix. The only thing i do like about ver.4 is that its quicker. But then whats the point if it is un-usable. So please bring back some of the syncing options.

  7. Hi all.
    Has anyone had any experience animating a bunch of dandelion seeds floating in air? I though i could use trapcode particular to create this effect, but as a dandelion seed has a weighted base/seed i need to find a way of replicating the way each seed would sway in the wind. Example of the real thing in movement here: (10 sec mark).

    Any tips or ideas appreciated.

    1. Luke,

  8. Hello! I love Red Giant products. I stumbled across pluarleyes in the 3.0 version, and it’s AMAZING for indie filmmakers like myself who don’t have the budget for cameras and audio recorders that support timecode.

    However, pluarleyes 4.0 is VASTLY inferior to 3.5. Thank goodness I never deleted 3.5 after 4 came out. There are some features in 3.5 that I would love to see return to the next version,

    Version 4 seems to have less options, and the program handles everything on its own. This would be fine if it worked, but I have numerous problems every time.

    For starters, in 3.5 I’m able to control how many “recorders” their are when importing media. In 4 it seems to decide this on its own, which can be frustrating. Many times, despite using only one audio recording device, the program splits it into 20+ different “Audio recording devices” creating synch issue and a huge number of disorganized and unneeded layers.

    Furthermore, I don’t lack the lack of options that were present in 3.5, such as toggling on “allow change clip order” “level audio” “fix drift” and “try really hard”. Sometimes I want those on, and other times I want them off depending on many factors of my audio.

    I would love to see these features return, or maybe at least create an “advanced” menu mode where people who want to change those settings have the option to.

    In the meantime I’m going to continue using and loving version 3.5.
