Modifier random function problem

Postby Magmatic » Sat Dec 31, 2016 3:16 pm

I had 10 layers with a pan x modifier in a slide, random function. That worked fine, with a smooth back-and-forth motion. But when I added the eleventh layer, suddenly the layers jerked rapidly back and forth. It does not happen if the eleventh layer has a sine function or some other kind of modifier. Doesn't matter if the layer is an image or a solid color.

Any ideas?

Here is what I mean:

I wonder if the "random" function isn't quite so random. It looks like the random function became block waves or some form of discontinuous function. Does each layer have a "random" function or is there a "master" layer which the other layers reference?

You might use a couple of layers as "master" and use the random on those ... then, a have several layers each referencing one of those masters. "Maybe" that'll work.

Then too, you might tell Photodex about it.

It is when each layer has the random function. Not when a modifier is a variable amount based on another layer that has the random function. So, the "master layer" method seems to work OK, except I didn't want any of the layers to look like another layer.

Yes, it looks like I should tell Photodex.
