I've known Victoria (indirectly on Twitter and the Motion Design Slack) to be a passionate AE user, with a deep knowledge of the inner workings of our favorite quirky animation app. I'm curious how much of her documentary and coding background will shine through in the next few years! Regardless AE is in good hands.

 

That said we'll miss Todd Kopriva, who has been here on mograph for almost as long as we have existed. First as the AE documentation guru, then Product Manager. We wish him well and thank him for helping steer AE in the 21st century with all the recent core updates!

 

AE as a product is facing steep competition from Fusion and Nuke in the compositing space, Boris, Resolve and Smoke in editing/finishing and Anime Studio and Toonboom in the character/explainer realm. It's the Photoshop of video, trying to be many different things to many different users. I'm hoping our small scrappy AE team can hang in there and convince users -and Adobe itself- that AE has a long bright future ahead. I'm rooting for you guys!

Has Todd said anything else besides he's "leaving software development"? I wonder what he's moving on to.

 

Congrats Victoria!

I'm likely to do some freelance technical editing, writing, and translation work to pay the bills as I ramp up some much crazier endeavors.

Best of luck, Todd. You've been such a cornerstone for so long -- it's the end of an era. It's sad that I'll have to find someone new at Adobe to nag when I'm having trouble :)

Nah. You won't have to find anyone new, since Victoria will fill that role handily.
