If you're referring to the green outline on your screen as 'the box' then it has to do with the resolution of your image. That's what the green outline signifies. So outside the box there is no image, so it can't be shown. Increase the image size, decrease the size of your copies and then they should fit.

Yes Sir. I'm referring Green Outline as a Box. According to you I need to find a Bigger Resolution Image for the Ants ?? Right ?

Not necessarily. I don't know the resolution of your original image, since from your video it's unclear what elements are what. You can just use 'scale' or 'resize' to make the image of the ant bigger. I think duplicate only works within the confines of its original image size.

Well the Ant Image is 500*500 & that's what the Box Dimensions looks like. The Exact same Size. Although I'll try a Bigger Resolution Image, coz I increased it's Size using Transform or even Merge but the Copies Stay Under the Box no matter the Size.

Can you select all nodes in your comp and copy/paste them in here between

[code][/code]

tags? Then we can see what you're doing a little clearer. From your video I can't see what image the ants are. I don't see any ants. But the green box is just your merge. Go into the merge, adjust the size and the box will fill the screen.

I did increase the merge size & box didn't go big. Also I tried to increase the size of duplicate copies but it's something way different. Please tell me how to copy pastr the way you're asking & I'll make a detailed Video in a Visible manner again for you to spot the Problem. I'll be posting it in a few minutes

In the node area of your fusion comp, box select all your nodes. Press 'copy'
Go to the forum, and create a post.

Press the 'code' button above the window. This will result in two tags. Put the cursor inbetween the tags and paste. Now all the info from your Fusion comp will be available in the forum post. (Fusion uses plain text to store its comps)

This was a very helpful video. Thank you for that.
For some reason - I don't know why - you can't control the size of your duplicates inside the duplicate tool. As you've seen the size works additive i.e the size gets bigger or smaller, but you want all the sizes to be the same. You can't do that in the duplicate node. Never mind, because in this case you'll probably can achieve this with a transform tool (or a couple of them)

The transform tool has an option to 'wrap' around it's edges. So if you make something smaller, you'll get smaller copies that run across the screen. It's easier to show than it is to explain.
Can you DM me a still of the background and the image of the ant in this forum and I'll make a short video to show you how it works. That's much quicker in this case.

I tried transform but not Wrap Option. I'll try it. The media you're asking for is Ants, The Led? & Me In the Background too ?? Or Led & Ants will do?

Thank you. I will be away from my PC for the next couple of hours, so I'll have to find a moment later today. I do have one question though: what is the artistic idea about combining your face, LED strips and ants? I'm really curious about that.
