Re: The limit??? Over 210 layers- yes limits!

Grate workflow Stive, thanks. (bdw, I did backup each day)
Also, I did retouch before composition, those 222layers was made to reach the photorealistic effect... I mean ambient light, shadows, specular, abberations, blurs, atmospheric, ect.

Now I know that content excess essence- but what the hell! We are learning on our mistakes!

In response to you Steve, yes thats generally the best way to work, not great if you have one hard drive though. Another option is to have a server setup that creates the archives over a two week period - I've great hopes for the new Time Machine feature in Leopard, with a large enough spare drive, you could effectively do the whole thing without any manual effort.

yeh, no. get more memory and come back later.

Also, alot of people, pro's alike, need lessons in workflow. I used layer-whore and feel super ambitious solely because I had many layers. Alot things I did turned out not to need so many layers to do.

and also, I NEVER FLATTEN, my entire workflow is based around nondestructive editing, I dont even need the "history" window because I never really edit anything. If I erase something, it was probably a layer mask.

Synthetamine, it is better to think before you write.
Me "pro's alike" - send this file as a anecdote.
And tell me - how to put more memory than 2G to MBP from 2006y?

In his case it's best not to write anything at all. Pure drivel from a wannabee in all his 20 some posts.

Re: The limit??? Over 210 layers- yes limits!

the fact you said that means you probably can't add more RAM. my computer has 2GB ram, DDR.

I consider my last post well thought out (sure hope nobody finds a typo, because that ruins every online argument ).

good thing there's scratch disks. It only slows down how long it takes to save files.

I used to oversample, as in, work at MUCH higher resolutions than i'd ever display on (unless I'm printing, which happens rarely, I display on HDTVs at 1080i/p which is 1900x1200) and one document I was working on was 8000x10000 with many layers. Thats when I re-evaluated my workflow. Other people need to do the same. (btw, The point of oversampling is to be able to shrink a document down to any resolution and have superb quality, which is always better than upscaling)

I guess having nearly half of the posts that stopa has puts the two of us in COMPLETELY DIFFERENT leagues. </sarcasm
