  1. Is there an advantage to working off of your dropbox folder over backing up with something like Carbonite? Is one safer than the other?
  2. Thanks everyone. Yeah, it looks like a cineware or Element solution would be cleanest in this particular case. AromaKat, thanks for the Zaxwerks layer tools tip, that looks really useful for all kinds of things.
  3. Hello! Can anyone offer advise on a good matte painting setup in After Effects? I am trying to do something similar to a matte painting setup in Nuke (projecting matte painting layers onto spheres that encompass the scene). I would normally do this type of thing in Nuke, but the studio I'm at for this gig only has AE, so I'm stuck. I would like to avoid using large flat solids in the background because the camera shows a very wide field of view for many shots and that can get messy pretty quick, so a true spherical solution, such as Horizon would be ideal. In fact, I've tried setting this up in Horizon, but couldn't figure out a way to get multiple layers at different distances from the camera - seems like you're stuck with one flat image at an arbitrary distance in space. Another thought that occurred to me was to use something like Element 3D and bring in some spheres textured with my matte painting layers, but I have no experience with Element, so I wasn't sure if this would be a good solution. Any thoughts or ideas you guys can share would be an enormous help. Thanks in advance!
  4. Thanks! There's some great info on that site.
  5. Yeah, it's expensive as hell considering it doesn't appear to be nearly as powerful as other options. Though, would something like : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487076&cm_re=gtx_970-_-14-487-076-_-Product work reliably in a mid 2010 Mac Pro without having to do any special setup?
  6. Hello! Can anyone offer advise on a decent solution for upgrading the graphics card in my 2010 Mac Pro? This is what I'm considering right now: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=gtx+680+mac&N=-1&isNodeId=1 From digging around other threads on this sight, it seems like there are more powerful cards that people are putting in the same Mac Pro, but from what I can find, it seems like this is the best "plug and play" solution that doesn't require setting up any additional power sources, etc.. Or, if anyone has an option they like better, I would love to hear about it. Thanks in advance!
  7. Thanks! For some reason, I was always under the impression that applications (Nuke, etc...) can take advantage of cuda on osx. So to fully take advantage of a Mac Pro, would you recommend running Windows?
  8. Hey Guys, Sorry if this is a lame question, but is the above mentioned Titan easy to set up with a mid 2010 MacPro? Or, would it be better to go with something like the Quadro K5000?
  9. Thanks! I directed the video and did the post work. Here's my info : http://scottpeters.tv Here's the DP's info as well : http://www.bryantjansen.com
