  1. This is simple to do in Illustrator. You want to use the "Appearance" panel and simply add a second fill. You can then fill that with a simple black and white gradient. Finally, set the transfer mode (Color Burn in this example) and you are good to go. Note: you can change the transfer mode by clicking the "opacity" link under the gradient fill. Here's a screenshot for reference: https://www.dropbox.com/s/466h9nqdwm1ivyh/Screenshot%202015-10-30%2014.16.46.png?dl=0 The Appearance panel is very powerful and I've noticed over the years that most people don't take advantage of it.... Let me know if you have any questions. Hope that helps, -Joe
  2. I use that setup but with only 1 Thunderbolt display... sometimes I leave the macbook open and use it as a second display. I use AE/C4D all the time and don't notice any gfx loss. I think adding a second monitor wouldn't affect it much, but am not sure.
  3. I'm on dribbble and have a few invites. If you follow and msg me on dribbble, I'll draft you... https://dribbble.com/joeski
  4. I had been using Prosite from behance for the past 2-3 years, but just switched over to SquareSpace a week or two ago. SS is much easier to update/customize and all their themes are 'responsive' and look great on any device. SS and Vimeo is a great combination...
  5. Hi Guys, I thought some of you might find this useful. Proggle is a free script that simplifies how you work with the Protection Tag in C4D, primarily with cameras. In this short video, I'll show you my basic setup and how to use it. Let me know if you have any questions. https://vimeo.com/121903350 thanks, Joe PS: this is the first "tutorial/tip" video I've ever done. Hope I didn't butcher it up too badly and it's of some help.

    3D Mouse

    I've had a Spacemouse Navigator for the last several years and love it. It takes a short time to get used to, but once you do, you can simply imagine a spot in your scene and magically navigate there precisely as if you were in a helicopter. Well worth it and works great in conjunction with a Wacom tablet.
  7. Amazing job, thanks for taking the time! You truly are a natural for these...
  8. Yes, as Simon mentioned, you need the ArtSmart plugin. It should work perfectly for this.
  9. Well, Apple uncharacteristically announced that new mac pros are coming in 2013.... http://www.forbes.com/sites/connieguglielmo/2012/06/12/apple-says-new-models-designs-for-imac-mac-pro-in-works-due-in-2013/?partner=yahootix
  10. check out MediaSIlo. They are launching a new version in a couple of weeks and that is geared towards general cloud based asset management. http://www.mediasilo.com/

    Solo does look nice. I, too, was using the now dead BillingManager, and was forced to quickly find a new solution to replace it. I went with http://www.getharvest.com/ and like it.... but it's not free like BM was.
  12. Wow, great presentatio, very inspiring! Thanks for taking the time to share your some of your techniques and insight. There must be a lot of people trying to watch it, Cineversity is at a crawl. -Joe
  13. Have you seen this: http://adamswaab.wordpress.com/category/3d...ender-elements/
  14. One more thing... when I first switched over to the pen, what I initially missed most was a scrollwheel. I picked up a Powermate and it works great, using it with my left hand while the pen is in my right. hope that helps...
  15. I also have to chime and recommend the wacom tablet. I had one for years only using it for some photoshop tasks, but a couple of years ago I switched over to using it 100% of the time and have never looked back. Now, on the rare occasion I have to use a mouse, it becomes very obvious how good the pen is. Like someone already mentioned, it takes a few weeks to get used to, but once you do, it really is great.
