AFTER EFFECTS 7 sneak peak

Recommended Posts

Guest Sao_Bento

I guess you can't get sued if you don't provide any real information.

I'm glad they're going to add a "slow motion" feature to AE - I been waiting for that ;)

Can we say bloatware? :D

Well, it's only a rumor. Have to wait and see I guess.

 

I wish they would do something about mask manipulation. They drive me nuts.

i really hope, really hope, adobe is going to overwork the afx animation editor finally... i can't believe we're at 6.5 and still no decent fcurves-like or combustion-like animation editor... before adding some unnecessary stuff like a new starshaped paint brush i hope they're going to fix that (editor) first...

Well I hope they add Spell-Checking to the new version. I don't know why Adobe won't have this for every program that uses a Type Tool.

Good heavens, yes, spell checking.

 

I hate being handed-off a project file with comp names like

 

"Planatarry Hallo"

and

"Runing Woman b4 adding snow"

and

"definately bestest roto version"

 

Ha! Ha! Ha!

No You Big Silly! I didn't mean comp names. I meant like the type that gets on air. But I am a big snob for a clean AE file Structure!

My AE projects tend to look like someone inhaled a load of .psd, illustrator, quicktime and ae files and then sneezed all over my OS. I like it though...through chaos comes creativity.

Here's a suggestion on naming your files:

 

-Test

-Test_2

-Test_2BETA

-Finalrender

-Final_render_2

-REALLYFINAL

-ALPHAtest

-final_10march

-final_10march_b

 

or how to name your folders:

 

output

renders

testrenders

TESTRENDERS_

FINAL_output

DELIVERY_DONT_DELETE

oh my god. this is exactly how my "art director" names his files. i've never seen so many finals in my life. final_01a, final_01a_rev, final_01a_final_rev, final _01a_final_rev_01a, etc etc.

I didn't know you worked for me... :) (ducks and covers)

 

I'm getting better about naming things. It's not taking me quite as long to figure out one of comps when I have to revise it 6 months to a year later. Ack! I also enjoy frustrating those around me. Some can pick up one of my comps and work with it. Others bitch and whine, and when I attempt to help them, they recoil and inform me that they know what they are doing. Oh well.

Nice! I'd LOVE to see a smaller version of illistrator actually integrated into AE. Animated Illustrations would be a piece of cake, rather than jumping into flash for the tweens =)

I guess that why they offer the upgrade to 6.5 for $99 right now.

I take it that is the Standard AE. I see $199 upgrade for Professional any version from 4.x up. Which it was just a month ago $199 was only for upgrade from 6 and $299 for 5.x down I believe. NiCe.

I did the 6.0P to 6.5P, that was $99. No Zaxwerks plugin included tho. Just the Cycore stuff and Color Finesse, which was really quite enough.

I got a card in the mail the other day advertising a promotional price on AE Standard. $399. Wowza.
