  1. WOW! This is some really kickass 3D. Nice mysterious atmosphere too. First I was thinking of extraterrestrial live, but then suddenly man-made object appeared, som maybe there lifeforms evolved after a nuclear fallout? Do you think the backdrops are shot footage or 3D too? My guess would be 3D, but some of them look so realistic. Nice find!
  2. Thank you so much for all your replies! Really helpfull.
  3. Hi all, This is my first post on Mograph. My name is Heerko Groefsema and I live in the Netherlands. I hope I will have a great time here, and will learn a lot. Ok I'm kicking off right away with a complex question (at least that's what I think) I'm thinking of buying a new system, and I of course checked out a mac first. I never owned a mac but worked on them during my internship at Talpa (tv station in the Netherlands). But damn a mac is so damn expensive! So I wondered is a mac really better than PC? Before this thread turns into PC vs Mac war... What I want to know is, what hardware specs are the best for motion graphic? And than try to assemble a PC which can compete with a mac. 1) Do software like Cinema 4D, AE and Photoshop support (take advantage of) 8-core or quad core? 2) The same for memory, what amount of internal memory would be best? 3) What is a good graphics card for motion graphic design? Should I pick one from this list? http://www.adobe.com/products/aftereffects/opengl.html and which is the best buy on that page? And what about SLI? Does the software (Cinema, AE, PS) support that? 4) For a HDD a 7200 RPM S-ATA is the best I assume? Although I have seen 10.000 rpm's ever heard of those? Is one HDD better or multiple? Like a 10.000 rpm for scratch disk, and a 7200 rpm for software and storage? 5) What about 64 bit OS? I saw that cinema supports 64 bit and after effects doesn't. What would you recommend?
