  1. Welcome to motion graphics! Were only 1% of the people actually design and the rest copy and do production.
  2. https://www.facebook.com/groups/design.for.ent/ Facebook group for main titles, trailers (movie and games), FUI and similar mograph stuff. No jobs posts please. Check it out.
  3. I believe it was Buddha Jone. Or maybe Deva? http://buddha-jones.com http://www.devastudios.com
  4. I have heard you always book yourself first then all other holds become challenges. So if they really want to book you they are challenging? Which; I guess makes it more serious? Yeah, I can see their side. They don't know if they will win a job, things move so quickly and they want to lock up the talent. But the cost of the freelance economy.

  6. Has anyone used this? http://www.vmware.com/products/thinapp http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VMware_ThinApp
  7. I would love to see features added to AE that are in the AE script realm become native or AE open up more hooks so more AE Scripts can be created. I love AE scripts. I would love to be surprised by how fast AE is... just one time. Most of the day I type cards for movie trailers and I wonder why is this shit so slow. It is live type witha basic bitch glow. What is the deal. I know it might be my set up, my fucking mac or my server or something on my end. I wish AE would figure out what the problem was and just fix it...jesus. Like in the movie HER the computer does fucking something for you! Or liek Zbrush were it optimizes the performaced based on you setup. Or make AE a lot harder to use so things take longer and then American jobs won't be outsourced. Pick one.
  8. I have a PC with 1 TB Drive, 2 TB Drive, Mac Formatted 3 TB Drive, 1 TB external transport Drive and 500 GB Transport. I am looking to reduce all the duplicate projects and organize all my stuff. I want to consolidate all the drives onto a huge NAS. Can anyone recommend a NAS they like? I am thinking it can be a place to get everything organized and then just keep active jobs on the other faster drives. Do you guys think a WD Cloud is any good? http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KU686L4/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_AS9Kub0TSJ802 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ITI054G/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_Y49Kub1Z8G1E http://amzn.com/B00BNI4DR4 Thanks for any tips.
  9. This looks great and the price is right. I should have bought Octane while it was low.
  10. Well part of me wants a low power server that is fast enough to work off of. So that would either be a NAS or Server. I was looking at this external RAID just because that is what I have always seen as far as a "RAID Setup" Internal RAIDS seem fine. With the Mac Pro you only had 3 open drive bays after the start-up so most people would use and external solution (4 drives) and if it needed to be worked on it could just be taken away or swapped out.
  11. Yep we are switching to PC too. Font management seems to be biggest issue. I wish Apple would make it easier to load OS X on any hardware. I haven't tried hackintosh yet and IT at work is not even going to try it. Is Window 7 still the main install? Some people love Windows 8. Any recommendation as far as RAID set up for PC? http://www.rosewill.com/products/20/160/334/0000/series.htm Is this all you need and fast drives?
  12. The best thing is to form a Mograph Union before we all end up living in Canada like all the VFX guys. We have the union deal with clients, set the wage, hours worked, provide benefits and pensions. When you find yourself rendering out changes at 2 am it will sound better than a day rate that some how lasts 18 hours.
  13. In the Octane manual it says the set-up for Cards. I think I will use any available card to render.
