Advice needed on maximum number of layers possible per composition.

Hi all again,

 

Just need a small clarification.

 

I am doing a show with 88 white painted wooden tiles of 1m x 1m randomly spread around a 22m x 4.5m screen. I have 88 images that needs to be mapped on these tiles and animated with wipes. This cannot be pre-composited because the position of the tiles may vary.

 

Hence I would like to know if it would be safe to have 88 layers with these images animating at the same time on one composition. And this composition needs to to play in a task with the content on the main screen.

 

Also please let me know if any alternative methods could be followed.

 

Thanks in advance.

There is nothing in WATCHOUT that will prevent it.

This does challenge the graphics card,

but it should be possible if your GPU is up to the task.

Not so much a graphics sub-system memory size issue,

more about GPU speed and memory bandwidth.

If all must appear at the same time,

you may need to manually "pre-roll" them to avoid a bottleneck.

Obviously you would need to test on your hardware to confirm.  ;)

Thank you very much. The show was a success. I was able to run over 60 compositions in a single task with each of these compositions running 68 layers of images with scale and wipes tween animating them. It was totally flawless.

 

Thanks once again.
