  1. Thanks for taking time to reply. I will reply to let you know how it goes!
  2. Hi Mograph, I am trying to find the solution to upscaling an old AE project for a client - without having to animate the whole project again. How should i upscale? Can it be done with an adjustment layer or by simply making a new HD composition an re-sizing? Thanks in advance, dpi
  3. wow thanks for all the replies! im just reading through them now...
  4. so they never showed us at university.... is there a template or something... im based in the UK if that makes a difference? template = would be super useful!
  5. How do the pros do it? I found this flash video on the web (link below), and I am amazed at the quality, and how fast it loaded and played fine, with no stutters or choppiness. 1st example: http://www.videocopilot.net/products/proscores/ he is a God yes! but he can also encode video nicely - http://www.vudu.com/product_overview.html - My question is, how were they able to do this? What kind of program / codec is able to produce such high quality video, while still being able to playback well on a pretty basic computer? 1. Best way to upload to YouTube so they dont change the compression if possible. 2. Software and settings needed! 3. Its an emergency 4. Thanks lots in advance!
  6. I also want to have particular fly and "wrap" around a solid (3d enabled). Does anyone know how to do this? I found this with google; http://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/63/...emote_call=true

  10. Hello all, I haven't been on Mograph for a while (forgot my login)! ... but I have a request and would be over the moon if somebody could give me some tips! I have a solution for the balloon string with the use of Trapcode particular and could upload the actual balloon file if somebody wants to have a look! see this link for movement ideas: http://www.cartoonbrew.com/cgi/famous-balloon-movies.html
  11. Hey Mographs, Its a lot to ask I guess but I'm making a book using 'Blurb.com', and wanted help choosing a title so far I've come up with 'Motion Graphics' which is really dull... it has storyboards using screenshots and has all my work from university in... so a title that sums up my time at university could be good. any ideas would be appreciated, dpi
  12. Hi Mographs, Really need some help please! would somebody be kind enough to supply me with a pitch/presentation of a branding idea they had... I've never constructed a presentation before and I'm finding it rather difficult... so if anybody could upload a pitch they've made in powerpoint it would be amazing. thanks in advance, dpi pps I know its a lot to ask but I'm really stressing about it.
  13. Hi, I'm about to get a website and have recently graduated, who could point me in the direction of a good Pseudonym... Or list a few in our industry that work well! Thanks in advance, dpi
  14. thanks _gl haven't seen Ratatouille didn't remember the Bourne Ultimatum credits ... however it gives me an excuse to watch it again...
  15. Hi Mographers, What is your favorite film/movie/television end/closing credits? For films I could think of just two noteworthy... Lemony Snicket's - A Series of Unfortunate Events. Nice link here; lemony snicket's closing credit article West Side Story - End Credits by Saul Bass youtube
  16. Hi Mographs, I'm about to present my first live project presentation/pitch for initial feedback. Any tips would be appreciated as I'm slightly worried. What to take how to present, and so on. Thanks in advance, dpi

  18. Hi Hope everybody is good at mograph :H Anyways... I'm looking for some examples of really good DVD menus - old or new - any subject. I'm about to make a DVD for my university... but wanted to make it decent and long-lasting with clever navigation. The DVD is basically a promo tool for the university - crossing many design disciplines/courses. Also I have DVD studio pro - BUT what do film studios use? As its rather clumsy at times. Thanks in advance. dpi
  19. yes perfect thanks so much! i have over 200 small layers that just need to appear at slightly different times.
  20. Hi, Is there any way to automate a batch of illustrator files to 'step' in the timeline? I googled it but it just came up with Automatic Duck (You can choose the direction layers "step" in AE) which I didnt want to buy
  21. Hi, I know this is probably really basic stuff, but I've never used it before... any tips would be appreciated! Paint on effect using an illustrator file as the mask Thanks in advance
  22. Vertigo ~ over and over! never get tired of it
  23. see this link: vimeo video from hv20 the descritption posted mentions 'pulldown'; what is it, if important where is it located in Final Cut Pro? thanks in advance
  24. if they were to drop the 'pro apps' why would people buy macs? I wouldn't for one.
  25. extreme motion is resolved with progressive scan... I think! from everything I've read hdv to tape is preferable, less compression. The hard-drive and memory cards are compressing too much
