  1. HA not a newb, but WAY BACK when they redid the site everybody's sign in stats were reset. If that tells you how long I've been around. Sorry so quite lately. I still do a ton of looking around here:) thanks fro the good words everyone!
  2. Thanks everyone for all the good words! Chizminz, we have been trying to get to the meetings. Singer and Kerndt has been working us to do it. We just have been hit with a lot lately. But things are easing off and you should see us soon.
  3. very sexy. great work. love the minimal camera movement.
  4. Does any one know any good examples or 3d or 2d type being used in a live environment? ANy help would be great!
  5. dang it! Everyime I have plans. Hey next time can you guys give us a bit more notice? Hope it goes well.
  6. NICE! This is really great to do for Denver mographers! Unfortunately I can't make it this time but feel free to drop an email anytime and well grab drinks. rbramwell at spillt dot com. Hope it all goes well!!!
  7. SORRY FOR THE CAPS (RENDERING). DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY GOOD RESOURCES ABOUT ACTUAL USE OF IMAGES IN DESIGN AND THE COPYRIGHTS SURROUNDING THEM. I AM NOT SPEAKING OF BUYING AN IMAGE FROM GETTY OR THE LIKE. FOR INSTANCE: I WANT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF AN OLD RED VIEWFINDER AND USE IT IN MY DESIGN. MY CLIENT'S LAWYERS ARE ALL OVER IT SAYING YOU CANT DO THIS. I BROUGHT UP THAT I CAN DRAW (OR MAKE AN ARTIST REPRESENTATION) OF THE VIEWFINDER AND THEY STILL SAID IT WOULDN'T CLEAR. MY INTERPRETATION IS THAT BY EITHER TAKING A PICTURE OF AN OBJECT OR CREATING A REPRESENTATION OF THE OBJECT, THAT THE IMAGE BECOMES YOUR OWN. (FOR EXAMPLE, IF I TOOK A PICTURE OF THE MONA LISA, THEN I OWN THE RIGHTS TO THE PICTURE OF THE MONA LISA AND NOT THE MONA LISA) I KNOW THIS IS A BLURRY LINE WE ALL HAVE TROUBLES WITH, BUT DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SOLID FACTUAL (OR LAW BASED) RESOURCES I MAY LOOK AT TO CLEAR THIS UP? ANY GOVERNMENT RESOURCES REGARDING THIS MATTER? (I AM NOT LOOKING FOR OPINIONS HERE AS I NEED SOMETHING TANGIBLE TO SEND TO THE LAWYERS) THANKS FOR ANY HELP YOU ALL MAY OFFER.
  8. I agree as well. The title were very good:0
  9. Good times seeing everyone out. It looks as our group or 8 are the only mographers in Colorado. (At least the ones that knew about it) Go team CO.
  10. THis movie sucked more than Dreamcatcher, if that is even possible.
  11. I AM HERE. ALWAYS HAVE BEEN. A NEW FIRM IS COMING SOON.
  12. nice dude! good times. love it. you have come a long way. Site, looks good. It is a good representation of who you are. I like that you strayed away from all the flash work, which I know you easily could of went that route. The broadcast colors thing is great. Retro and definitive at the same time. I would however, take out like at least half of the children's book pages and only show one or 2 examples of your best work ONLY. I just felt like I was scrolling through the same stuff for a while until I got to something new. talk to you on im -bwell
  13. Adam.... you are a sexy bitch. The reel turned out amazing dude! The site is freaking great too. Good job man!
  14. WHOA DUDE. Crabbey is a huge talent, no Doubt about it. There is just a fine line when designers are working towards the same goals under the same company. That just needs to be clear. THis is just one of those situations where you are unsure. Or the lines get blurred.
  15. As usual, good work man. But I have to agree with these guys and call you out on the L Word. You may be animating or redesigning it, which technically makes it partially yours, BUT the style concept obviously came from cheesehead. (WHo's work I know well) Maybe you work at the same place and things got mixed up? I dont know. I think some sort of explanation is due for call it you own. Because essentially this is no different than: THis: http://mograph.net/board/index.php?showtop...&hl=rip+off Where it is the same style but changed elements. Now I am not questioning your style, nor your talent as you have proven yourself to be a very talented designer which I hold respect to. But, lines get blurred when working on similar projects and I don't know your positions on this project. For example: I have seen this done with my work before, where one would be the creative director and another designer (me) is actually doing the style work. But because this person is the director, and thus "driving" the project, it somehow means they can use it as their own. I believe this to be a very fine line for giving credit where it is due. Again, I am not sure of the event surrounding this, nor will I point blame on this. BUT, this is WAY TOO CLOSE to be yours fully, just because you added some different flares and such. My belief is if your are a designer that is adding your own outlook on a project which another designer has already touched to make the spot even better (which looks to be the case here), then you both equally designed it and both should have credit for the design. Essentially, because on designer was the "inspiration" and the other "closed the deal". Period.
  16. Yes. use particulars snowflakes presets. they work well to get you basic motion. To use an actual shape, make a snowflake, put it in the time line. In the particle area of trapcode, select custom layer and choose the snowflake layer. Now all of your flakes will be shaped. If you want multiple snowflake shapes, Take like 5 different shapes and make a full res QT movie out of them. YOu can tell particular to take random frames from that QT and it will them give you random flake falling down. Hope that helps.
  17. Maybe increasing cache and virtual memory usage?
  18. Good call Sermon, that may be the problem. I have been using Avant Garde recently and I believe it is a TTF font. The text is rather large on the screen. The kerning was different on every line I used and the font is very large and bold, so this issue caught me off guard. I had no time to figure out the issue because of deadline, so I just replaced all text with .ai files, which worked fine, but production wise, will take longer with the 12 versions I need to make of this commercial. I was hoping this was a bug that someone can fix, and it now sounds like an Adobe font issue, which makes more sense. THanks for all your help.
  19. yea man, its like this crazy and very bad bug. If my kerning is the same, it does not do it. If I adjust kerning from line to line within one text layer, it does it. I have never had this happen before either so I am wonreding if I missed something I did.
  20. Like an out of control wiggler setting.
  21. Hi all, its been a while, so I wanted to say hello and get some help again! THis may be a cow question, but I know you all can answer this faster and I can get better answers here. For some freaking reason, my text in after effects jiggles now when I animate it. Out of nowhere too. Its almost like it is rasterizing the graphics wrong or something. Anyone having any similar issues? THis jiggling is similar to what you get on a broadcast monitor with thin lines, but the entirety of the text is fucking up. I dont get it. My raster settings seem cool. THey are text 3d layers typed and built in AE. HEEEEEEEEELP???? Is this some new bug or something? Or am I missing something very easy? THanks Ryan Someone told me this may happen when I kern??? WTF?!?!!?! How do I resolve this?
