  1. Again I have no experience of this but I believe I've read a few threads / articles that talk about gamma shift on export but I don't know if that's just a codec issue or a windows specific issue. Very happy for someone else to speak of their experience.
  2. Yeah option 3 does look good. Yeah that's the question. In theory I don't see why transfer speeds would be any different but it would be great if someone could chime in. Interesting, what have your issues been? I've very close to building a windows rig...
  3. Haha same! I wish I drew more...
  4. Correct me if I'm wrong but you can just get a simple app that lets you access Mac formatted drives on your windows machine. I have something similar to access PC formatting drives. I'm sure the utility was free (not on my home machine atm) but I've had no issues. In saying that I have not had to transfer large quantities of data.
  5. I did just see this...
  6. Thats great! I was waiting for a review! Reads well and I'm keen. I don't see an immediate need as I'm pretty heavy with AE but it seems like a step in the right direction!
  7. Looking impressive but waiting for the real reviews! http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/microsoft-introduces-surface-studio-shows-apple-rivalry-alive-and-well-20161026-gsbmjx.html
  8. I watched a reel some time ago where the guy had worked on a lot of point of sale animations for a cinema's candy bar. They looked 1080x1920. He basically just found some stock images of those environments and super imposed the animations over the top. Treated the scenes a little with colour correction / nice transitions but it looked great. Unfortunately I can find that reel anymore! Something similar perhaps? Maybes record some footage of an iPhone and do the same? Its a tricky resolution as you don't want o waste space but I'm sure it would work. Just my thoughts
  9. I think its like any other industry/profession. Its tough to break through but you'll get there just like everyone else. It can take a few years to find your place but you will. I think as well that there is almost a hysteria that goes around in the community of businesses closing down and how bad it is for everyone (and it is bad no one wants to be out of work) but that just happens everywhere every day in any profession. Keep an eye on the industry but don't let it swallow you up You can have a reliable/predictable source of income from this industry.
  10. Cool - it sounds very similar to what I do. A little C4D but nothing my machine can't handle render wise. Thats fair and again I'm using the same files. Mainly vector for some current projects but I do find rendering to another drive can be quicker. Nice! I don't own any fast external drives yet but good to know you can work from them! Cheers for this!
  11. This is along the lines of what I would like to build. Great power and not too expensive. What is your main work load, AE? Much different with the SSD for Cache? (Sounds like a silly question I know but i'd be keen to hear) Working on a slower drive for projects is there much of a bottle neck?
  12. Haha, good to know. I still have not updated but will do shortly...
  13. Agreed but a little hesitant to upgrade as I'm still on 13.6 and last time it wasn't very pretty
  14. https://blogs.adobe.com/creativecloud/whats-coming-next-for-after-effects-cc/?segment=dva Well here is the next update. The 3D tool looks alright for some basic extruding and that. Will be good to see what its like in practice. I have not updated since 13.6 so it will be interesting to see if its stable and works.

    Awesome to hear. I've been looking at that for a while but waiting too. Moving back over to Windows from Mac so really looking forward to it!

    Do you have a preference to stay with Mac? (No flame wars just a question )
  17. it might be worth just holding out for the time being on the 1080 - i'm keen for this but I have read this thread. https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2150832 It appears there is an issue working with r3d files.
  18. This is awesome! Just been testing it out this morning! Certainly making some tasks a lot quicker.
  19. It has been stable on Yosemite for me but the original tests on El Capitan were awful. Not sure if this has changed.
  20. I agree Simon, he's posted 11 times
