I'm working with a composition that renders several views into ONE output frame - let's say output image consists of 3x3 images.
Then I crop views out of this 3x3 image and pass those to the 3D Glasses effect so see stereo, i.e. render composition is nested into 3D Glasses composition.
Now the problem: I'd like 3D Glasses' output to change when dragging a slider in an effect inside the rendering composition, i.e. the composition that is input to the 3D Glasses composition.
But, the 3D Glasses output is not updated until I stop dragging, i.e. releasing the slider by releasing the left mouse button.
So, is it possible that the output of a following composition can be updated immediately when dragging as effect's slider in a previous composition (nested into the following)???
This would be really helpful for me and my work!
I'm working with AE CS5.
Thanks in advance,
P.S.: BTW, my problem can be reproduced simply by applying some effect with a slider to a composition. Then nesting this composition into another. Second composition won't be updated immediately!
AE cannot update the parent comp if it doesn't know the result of the nested comp and that is that. It's a general limitation with how AE works and there's no way around it.
Hm, what a pity. But however, thanks a lot for your very fast reply.
So, maybe a workaround will be to put all in the same composition - if really possible/suitable.
At least, that should solve the immediate update problem I think - even though it's not my preferred solution :-(
