  1. I'm sure Marc Z and gang have promoted it plenty on the slack, which I imagine is the most relevant place to do it. But... I guess many of us are too busy being on the slack. What I'm saying is we're too cool for you. (Not me though. I actually initiated a #mographdotnet channel on the slack, which is a ghost town but whatever.)
  2. Motion is going to make a comeback, I can feel it! Apple will finally care about being competitive in the creative software market again.
  3. Hey -gl, try this expression in your mask path already animated with keyframes. It worked for me. slider = (slider); kf = key(1).time; kl = key(numKeys).time; kt = linear(slider, 1, 100, kf, kl); valueAtTime(kt)
  4. What do you mean hadn't stopped?
  5. Nice link adam. Also, nice script blast frame. Both of those are very useful. Even if I know a lot of the code they are using, it's nice to see different ways to use it. And a script to make it faster. Though, a particular-like mograph cloner plugin would still be crazy useful, because hundreds of layers with expressions still brings AE to a grinding halt (thank goodness for the coming separation of render/UI threads). Add ways to have different clone groups, effectors, etc. and you'd have a plugin that would probably sell like crazy. And while I'm dreaming, I'd like a pony.
  6. Could you use CC Force Motion Blur? I just used it on your project and it looked as good as regular motion blur, but not messed up.
  7. Eh... I'm not really that important. I just whine most of the time. And it's probable that all he can really say is just "fill out that dang feature request form already!"
  8. Whoa, cool. Downloading now. I only wonder if there are issues with layer order while certain things are shy, like when you normally shy things. But I'm definitely going to try it out.
  9. Hey Todd, I just wanted to ask before I submitted this feature request. Is there a difference in priority between a feature request that is really more a fix and a feature request that is a brand new thing? Take mine for example: When you select keyframes from multiple layers and copy and paste, AE ignores the keyframe selection and just pastes new layers, which is frustrating when you have so many keyframes to copy and paste. I think it would be more intuitive and very useful if AE would paste the selected keyframes on all the respective properties on the multiple layers. Also, when you select a range of keyframes from multiple properties and use the keyframe assistant to time-reverse them, the keyframes are reversed but only between the first and last keyframes selected on each individual property. I think it would also be more intuitive and very useful if, instead, they are all reversed between the first and last keyframes of the entire selection. Because you are probably wanting to reverse the keyframes of the entire animation, not the local animation on each track. Probably. That's how I think, anyway. Anyways, these are small workflow fixes, which probably wouldn't take too long. I'll submit them, but I guess I don't feel like I have any hope of seeing these changes soon since they aren't big requests like the ones at the top of your list. Edit: I mean, keyframe-able shape/mask vertices would be great too, but I'm sure that takes longer. Oh and speed. Definitely like speed.... Oh, and...
  10. This post is way funnier now that I can read the whole thing in Binky's voice. Also, there are so many things I wish ILLUSTRATOR could do more like cinema 4d when drawing curves. They finally made that corner-to-curve chamfer thingy which is great except for when those corner dots take up all the space and you can't click on anything else.
  11. Actually, you can open a closed path in AE. You just have to select the two adjacent points you want to open, and then right click, and click on 'closed.' Took me a while to figure that out. For some reason it's not very intuitive, but there you go.
  12. I get around the bug by not doing any animation before one second into the comp, and by putting my ram preview in point always one second before what I actually want to see. It's a bit of a pain, but I don't notice it much now that I'm used to it. It'll just be another pain unlearning the habit once the bug is fixed.
  13. Yeah, I used total finder before because it added color back into the finder icons and added tabs to the finder. Now that you can have tabs natively, and it looks like TF doesn't add color to the Yosemite icons, it doesn't seem as worth it.
  14. Great thread. Especially since now I'm in a similar boat. Thanks for digging this up. I guess I should dig around the archives for all the great advice. Maybe we could start a thread that links to the best stuff.
  15. Yes, it plays fully when it loops.
