NY is tough (as in "hell"), especially after working in LA.   Not a lot of class in the city.

once you get the background separated, you might consider Illustrator's Live Trace, which will convert to vectors, a little better than magic wand.

I just keep thinking about the apple billions being hoarded offshore, sitting there doing nada.  motion graphics artists aren't supposed to think about anything except personal career path, but nonetheless it bugs me.


In Topic: I want to learn to write expressions

expressions = software rot.

the idea of graphics apps are to supply intuitive tools.  There's always the pull by boneheads to undermine that concept, and take things  away from artistry and back to bonehead comfort zone.  The last shop I worked in, entire comps were nothing but expressions and scripts by a worker who was scared shitless that a real talent would work easily in his project and get his job.

I haven't liked Apple since the old man kicked the bucket.

I wish there were something else.
