    AE 6 announced

    Man, that's too bad because I think that would have been a good competitor to AE. Oh well.

    iMac 2017

    Haha, still check in a couple times a week, but rarely post anymore. But every now & then something good pops up. As for the new iMac Pro, the upcoming one looks pretty good for what I do, but if it truly comes in at $17,000 fully loaded, that's pretty much a no-go for me.

    A padded reel?

    Ha, I used to have that PDF but I'm pretty sure it was on a HD that failed & I ended up throwing away. Speaking of Belief, this is kind of interesting: http://belief.com/ The Dawn of a New Belief is Coming Soon. In the meantime enjoy the founder's inspiration blog.

    new laptop

    If you can wait, it sounds "likely" that a new Macbook Pro is coming later this year. 3Q-4Q. It's been quite awhile since they've done a decent upgrade, so I would hold off if you can. I'm working on an early 2013 MBP. Mainly After Effects/Illustrator/Photoshop with a little C4D. It's been fine, although I wish I had more RAM (only 8 GB). Don't do a lot of heavy expressions work or super processor heavy work so for the most part it's been fine. Depending on what type of 3D work you do, the current models are probably not up to what you might need.

    A padded reel?

    Does anyone know whatever happened to this dude? Is he still in the business? getscrill.com unfortunately is DOA. Seeing this thread again made me laugh my ass off, haha
  6. Great stuff again. Thanks for sharing the expressions & code. Been kind of picking & choosing which of these I watch, but every one I've watched I've learned a little something new.
  7. Good stuff. Done this effect a lot but didn't know about the corner pin technique. Definitely brings it up to another level of realism.
  8. The WIP part is awesome but what I really want/need is a true Vimeo replacement, i.e. a place to upload videos that I can then use on my portfolio site. For that Vimeo+ is only $60/year. If you could match that, I would change in a heartbeat. I'm confused on this part. Vimeo Pro is $200/year. Even paying annually the Freelancer cost comes to $288/year and the pro $492/year.
  9. Much respect Binky. I watched all of these & picked up a lot of good nuggets of wisdom. I've always loved your critiques, honestly the best part of this site right now. You've certainly been tough but fair with some of my stuff which I really appreciate. It's hard to get criticism like that in most places. Really made me re-think some stuff. I also love the way you talked about the how & why, not just push button A, push button B crap that passes too much for tutorials these days. I want to know the thinking behind it & this delivered in spades. I've been wanting to re-do my reel for awhile now, and it's certainly given me a lot to consider that I hadn't thought of before. I really want to take the time to re-brand & carefully go through everything. Loved your thought "create an experience for the viewer and that they remember that experience." This was pure gold. Really hope you do more of these. Another series on your whole design process would be awesome as well. I haven't been active on this site much lately, but wanted to take the time to let you know how much I appreciated all the time & effort that you obviously put into this. It really showed.

  11. Geekbench scores are thoroughly unimpressive: http://browser.primatelabs.com/mac-benchmarks I was hoping for at least a mid-range between my 2011 17" Macbook Pro & the Mac Pro (Mid 2010) I work on but it's barely better than last years iMac. Seems making it thin was more important than making it powerful. I was going to get it if but I think I'm going to hold off for the hope of a Mac Pro late 2013. If you wanted to go the iMac route I almost wonder if you'd be just as well off getting last years model & saving the money for something else.

    Curious how many people here use twitter & what their @name is. Looking for more mograph types to follow. I'm @jasfish. I post about mograph/music/movies/books. What's your overall take on twitter? I use twitter daily, hardly ever use Facebook anymore.
  13. Funny, when I saw the end tag for the AT&T spot, that was the first thing I thought of
  14. It is better to whack them off from a distance
