  1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2zWJyl9w-8 Does anyone recall who this this spot? Thanks in advence,
  2. I still have huge respect for fine art and print(I should say, digital art form in this century). As the technology in media and entertainment keeps developing, majority of the art form tends to become user driven, so we are interacting with media these days. One thing I've been noticing these past a couple of years or maybe long time ago for some of you is that UI and Motion graphic are sort of merging and some people like to call it interaction. Well, that's just what I have heard people saying. Who am I to define any of them. All I know and realize is that things are connecting and specifing at the same time. I am a motion designer, but I don't like to be called just a motion designer who animate stuff around. Remember, we are designers before the motion. I know some like just animating and some can't animate. Nothing is right or wrong, but I know some people have different level of respect in each field. Sorry for the weird shout out, but this has been bugging me a while. And to get back to the point of this post. I think the motion is critical to deliver the visual storytelling and that's what I love about the motion the most. These days, productions require previsualizing the storyboard in animated form, right? Thanks.
  3. I've looked at their list and looks like they will have some labs about motion graphics on both AE and Flash. Just thought I shout out and see anyone going. Let me know if there's some particular that I should look out for. Thanks.
  4. I just heard that there will be Siggraph Asia. Anyone know about that?
  5. so, is there any seminars or conferences good for mographer coming in this year? I think it'd be ok even 3D related event as long as it's not product promotion event. Thanks.
  6. Anyone went this year? I'm curious if mograph designers could benifit from it. Any thoughts?
  7. Hi all, I'm wondering if there's any educational conferences or classes that you can recommand to motion designers (with many years of experience). Maybe the length would be about a week or less and focusing on mostly motion / design. Thanks.
  8. Now that the premiere is back on Mac, has anyone playing around? I' have been a big fan of Premiere just because, I can integrate with After Effects and I was wondering if anyone finds anything on it. Of course, I doubt that FCP users will switch it to Premiere, but just curious.
  9. I've seen this spot a long time ago and I can't find it again. It was for either espn or something. anyways, the spot was basically baseball players playing ball in PIN BALL MACHINE so, I guess it was MLB spot. I remember there was some scenes that player jumps into something and then spins for players to come out again. It was a lot of compositing involved, as I recall. I'm not sure if I made it clear, but I hope someone knows and has seen what I'm looking for. Please help. thanks.
  10. Well, I guess the key is to use 64bit. that way you can use full memory you have according to what I have read so far. The thing that I just realized is that it seems like the installing Win on Mac is PAIN IN THE A** You spend almost 5G and get stuck with installation doesn't sound encouraging at all. Anyone had a problem installing Win vista 64bit on Mac? Gosh!!!! it's such a difficult decision to make and it started upsetting me.
  11. wait, are you saying that you can only use 3 G ram on Windows in Mac? well, then there's no point of getting 4 G. right? I'm so confused. so After Effects, 3D Max and all other software can use only up to 3G as long as you run Windows in Mac. Is that correct? is that just it or is that something you can configure? It's quite frustrating and discouraging me to get the Mac anymore. I might as well just get a PC and pay less. I thought I could use Final Cut Pro if I wanted to, but ...... Are you guys all on Mac?
  12. Where do you buy the Mac Pro? anyone know if Apple store is the only place or any internet store that has discount? I'm actually convinced that quad core will do just fine. the thing is though, although the 8-core can take advantage of MP in rendering, but still when you are working in comps, preview rendering would not be so much faster than 4-core. Am I correct? I'm just trying to justify the cost of additional $1500 or $800. I go to sleep or do something else after I hit the render button anyways. Any thought?
  13. Is anyone running 3D Max on new Mac Pro (Intel Base) with either Windows XP or Vista, especially 64 bit version? Quad core: Two 2.66GHz dual-core Intel Xeon ATI Radeon X1900 XT 512mb (BTW, do you like this card over the Nvidia card that apple offers?) 4 G Ram (Well, actually I heard that you can only use up to 2 gig ram running max on mac) What do you think? would that perform a decent job running the Max and After Effects? Of course FCP as well. You know what's intersting though? I doubt that all design houses have 8 core, bla, bla top of th line. Don't they still make money with G5? Well, of course it's nice to have faster machine, but do I really need that much? Can I just get maybe 3rd fast machine, like the one above it would still be faster than G5, right? I'd also like to hear more about running 3D Max on Mac with either Win XP or Vista. Thanks.
  14. I don't think I have right to comment on this issue because I don't work for network place, but how come no one stands up for it, why do you just let them abuse you over and over? At the end of the day, we all need to have a job to feed, so you just get soaked into it and flow with whatever the tasks are. It's sad that some of the jobs just force you to fit in, but in a long term, aren't we all glad that we get paid? I apologize for being insensitive, but I think it's the reality. isn't it? I'm sure SO MANY people out there are dying to get a job like that even though they know they will get burnt out. I think it's the similar situation with "don't do free work just because you want to get experience or whatever the desperation you have at the moment for a job.
  15. a few years ago, I applied for a Mograph job in LA. Their CD told me that I made it through final two out of 500. Well, I was worked up at that point. Later, their HR called me asking about my visa status, back then I was with temporary work visa which were expiring within 5 months, so I told them I was working with my lawyer for that matter. After all, they said we've chosen the other person. I've convinced myself that they had to choose the other candidate because his or her work looked better. Well, now that I think back and being a permanent US resident now, I wonder if it would have been any different if I was a resident or citizen back then. I sometimes see some of the job posts saying candidates need to be "US citizen only" Would this be considered as "ethnicity" discrimination? This is 8th year living in the US and I'm still confused and learning a lot about this kind of issue. Well, it sure is depressing to even think about it though.
