    Mograph.com

    It's a tricky one because Mograph is a pretty standard term now days. I guess mograph.net almost certainly is a part of the reason it is such a general term. I mean Maxon use it extensively right? I don't want to be a dick and say you shouldn't be annoyed but I can see both sides. There were certainly some interesting reactions on Twitter. Not least Albert Osmoss. For me I'm not sure the mograph.com release video struck a good note. Some have said it was meant to be ironic but it didn't resonate with me.

    Opinions on Schooling

    Hey, Here's a thread which from memory covers the subject pretty well:

    How to start the process

    My first response was, 'maybe you shouldn't be doing this'. I never really have creative block, I never have enough time to explore 20% of what I want to do. There's always something to try. But then I thought about me playing with Ableton and I have the exact same problem in reverse. I just doddle off in some direction and get stuck in an unproductive loop. I end up thinking 'man but if I really was a master it'd be fine.' But I pretty much agree with the artist formerly known as Binky. Having a specific goal is key. It's not about the technique and never has been. It's about ideas and communication. But I think you have to just be happy with the fact that it will take you while to get happy with what you're making. It will start off a bit rubbish. If you follow tutorials it will look ok but will have no 'you' in it and be similarly unsatisfying.

    4K AE Playback

    I've got a 4K Open EXR sequence I'm comping in AE. In CC2015 RAM preview playback isn't at realtime unless the viewer is at 25%. Where as in CC2014 it plays correctly. Is this just 'a thing' or am I missing something?

    When someone copies your work?

    Quite a few people download my vids and post them on Youtube. I don't really mind if they credit me. I did have one woman who got angry with me because I asked her to take it down. It's true in a way that imitation is the purest form of flattery, it's generally only the good stuff gets copied.

    Motion Design VS Money

    Seems legit, he's got a t-shirt that says AE Genius. But it is kind of worrying that motion graphics has got to the point where anyone would bother to try this.
