  1. I just did a project with a neon sign. In my case I rendered in Arnold, which doesn't flicker, but I believe the QMC mode in C4D doesn't flicker. It does take a long time to render though.
  2. Every artist would be a user. They recently did a survey and from the results of that survey they decided on the one price model. One one hand there are some benefits, on another it gets pricey for smaller shops.
  3. We're a small shop with 5 people doing various post related tasks with two producers. I did a ton of research and never found anything that was comparable to Shotgun but cheaper without some of the extra features. Never found anything worth it, ended up going with Shotgun at $19/user price, which is no longer. Now it's the $49/user tier for everything which is good on one hand but expensive for smaller places. Would be great if they offered a lower flat monthly rate up to X number of users. It's amazing at tracking shots/sequences/edits/assets/whatever. So much customization so it takes a minute to set up a workflow that you like, but once you have it going it's pretty smooth. I would love to get the API access to really tie it into our workflow and make it easier for us, but too much money/time. Seems like a lazy comment…we're small and Shotgun saves us time. No messy email chains that take forever to read through. No shared spreadsheets to dig through. That shit takes time to manage, lots of it in fact, why not make it more efficient.
  4. This is very annoying. It's especially hard to explain to some clients why it's the way it is. I was watching The Killing last night and the two shots were always framed so that they favored either the right or left of the frame, essentially leaving one half empty. Pretty stupid if you ask me.
  5. I think this makes total sense…as much as it can with Apple at least. There is no reason to do a minor update to a line you're going to kill off.
  6. Walked by Shake Shack a few times but didn't get a chance to try it. Ended up going to Ess-A-Bagel, the NY Dosas cart at Wash Sq park, Katz's (I had to see if it really was that good), and ducked into the Holland Bar in Hell's Kitchen, which is a great little dive. Wanted to got to MOMA but that line was out of control.
  7. Going up to NYC tomorrow with the wife. She'll be working Monday and I have nothing to do during the day but check out the city. Any suggestions on things to do, food, etc? If anyone (who isn't working) wants to meet up for a drink or some lunch, let me know. Wanted to see the Cooper Hewitt but they're renovating. We're staying in Midtown, but I'm willing to go wherever something cool is happening.
  8. To make it worse, they have that new upgrade policy that means you will no longer be eligible for upgrade prices if you're more than a version removed. Since they are switching to a yearly upgrade schedule you will need to update every year to retain your upgrade eligibility. It's still cheaper than $600 a year, but BS since we generally skip every other version or so.
  9. Wait until the next episode and you'll get a better understanding of what happened and why. Well, at least why and what will become of it. Can't say much more without giving away spoilers. It definitely gets interesting from here on out. Not sure who did the VFX, but they did a good job on it. A little different from what I imagined when reading the book, but still cool.
  10. Thought I'd share our new reel with here. It's a mix of live action and some motion graphics here and there.
  11. Use shape layers and the trim path animator. It has a hard edge. Super easy and you can draw your shapes and just animate them instead of reveals. Pretty sure that was Myleniums suggestion in the Adobe forums.
  12. You can also select a layer and hit the [ (open bracket) key and that will move that layers in point to wherever the play head is. Closed bracket does it for the out point. Alt+[ will extend the start of the layer to the play head and alt+] wil do the end.
  13. Nice, I knew I remember seeing that thread but a search didn't turn up anything. Thanks. Getting bookmarked now. edit: just saw a comment by the creator on their Vimeo video that the release date is April 2nd.
  14. A while back I remember seeing a new plugin that was being worked on that allowed you to import a project file that updated live as it was changed. I can't remember the name for the life of me, anyone remember what it is? Thanks.
  15. How are the Ultrasones for comfort over long stretches of time? I have some AKG K270's, which are great, really flat and clear, but they're so big I've been looking at some other options lately.
