  1. What are everyone's thoughts on Drobo? http://www.drobo.com I currently use a older Drobo FS only for backup, since I am connected to it wirelessly. However at some point I am looking to upgrade to something that I can work off of.
  2. This was very helpful, thank you for taking the time to do this. I've got much to think about now for my own reel.
  3. Thanks Aaron! I am definitely going to cut those shots you mentioned and probably a few others. I had heard that song and immediately knew I wanted to use it for my reel. It was as short as I could cut it (to my abilities anyways) before I started to fill things in. Now I'm not sure that was the best approach to it. You make a very good point and will definitely keep that in mind going forward. Thanks again!
  4. Wow, thanks Binky! Yeah, I usually work with a editor on projects so I don't ever edit. This reel was my attempt to use Premiere. I've gotten a few comments about taking some shots out, but you're the first to mention the editing. I "tapped" out the beats for this song and used that as my starting point. I had originally thought I was on beat, even when I reviewed it (many many times) before. Now that I rewatch it, I can see maybe where I was a few frames off. As far as overall what I was thinking, a friend told me it was a good idea to group shots by project together. With the exception of the dragon, that's what I attempted to do. Originally I had grouped things together more by movement. I guess cutting some of the shots out would probably solve that problem a little. I'm going to open it back up as soon as I get a chance and look at the edits. Then next time around focus on keeping just the best stuff. Thanks again, Unrelated: I don't know why there are 2 posts? I only hit submit once.. I notice that mine's not the only one too. Is it a known bug?
  5. I'm currently using a Drobo FS. It's only connected via network so it's pretty slow, especially for large file transfers. As far as ease of use though, it's almost plug and play. Granted since it's working for me fairly well, I haven't looked into any of the other solutions offered here yet.
  6. Hey guys, Would love some feedback on my first professional reel. I haven't cut one since I graduated all the way back in '07. I've gotten a lot of good feedback from friends. Some of you guys set standards in the industry. So I'd love to know if there is anything I can maybe try or do better for next time too. Thanks! A few screens from it:

  8. Thanks for the resources Mylenium, will check them out. Yeah, I figured since it generated so many points... who knows, maybe a future update?
  9. Figured that would've been too easy. Anyone have suggestions?
  10. Is there a way to turn all the 2D Source points in After Effect's 3D camera tracker into nulls? I get the full menu with 3D Solved, but when I toggle it back to 2D source it only gives me the option to delete points. I wanted to then use the null points to create a triangulation look either with Plexus or something else. Not actually for a real project. I just wrapped a project with MLK in it and had the footage handy.
  11. Man, I really wish I could go! That looks great. Is this a new conference? Don't think I've ever heard of it before.
  12. I really like that, great job!
  13. I'm glad! Maybe once we can do 3D comfortably for multiple viewers without glasses... then it can resurface.
  14. That was really neat. My only thought is that the guy with the tuba and the circle with the clock seem out of place. They're not nearly as great as all your other shots.

    Reel WIP

    Still missing the open/end slate because I haven't quite decided how to brand myself. Would love some feedback though, thanks! https://vimeo.com/63910771
