Hey Martin!

Well usually i don't use auto takes at all .. it gets too confusing as you noticed.

Just RMB on the parameter you want to override and choose "Include in Take"

I think i'm just stating the obvious ;) Just wanted to say hi.

Cheers

Hello,

I was also just about to post a query about this. I am also confused with the workflow of take and the auto take feature.

In my file I have 4 Takes:

1. Animated ball

2. Ball shadow

3. Background

4. Background shadow

(with a 5th one later on for the snow.)

I am however getting utterly confused by the workflow. In my shadow takes I have assigned a shadowmatte material.

I'm still not getting the results i'm looking for.

I've attached the file and was wondering if anyone had the time to give it a quick look over?

I wish AutoTakes could be disabled completely.

Sometimes it is turned on automatically, and when I notice it becomes a mess...

I'm not even sure what Auto-take does. I'm thinking it is like Autokey.

I'm still very fuzzy on takes in general. After watching the sidefx video on takes I thought I knew what I was doing. :rolleyes:
