John Blessing 2013 Reel

Finally, after 3 years I have an all-new reel.

 

Let me know what you think! Any/all feedback is welcome!!!

 


AE CC/C4D R15 - Anyone using them full time yet?

08 October 2013 - 06:27 PM

So after paying for CC for months now, is anyone using these latest versions regularly? I've tried on a couple projects and had various issues that have made me go back to CS6/R14.

 

The only CC app I regularly use now is Illustrator. How sad is that? Yes, PS and Encoder are growing on me, but I'm not using anything in CC that wasn't in CS6 in those apps.

 

AE CC makes me choose between importing/using/rendering QTs and using my external (via internal AJA card) monitor. C4D's team render (more specifically it's lack of a good render queue) prevents us from using R15. Yes, I'm on a 2010 Mac Pro and have the limitations (no nvidia, etc) that come with that. So maybe if you are on newer hardware you are seeing more advantages? maybe?

 

Are guys on PCs having any better luck?


C4D F-Curve velocity limit?

19 July 2013 - 05:13 PM

So I'm having this weird issue with the velocity curve (for the position values on an animated object) capping out in the timeline. I think the velocity keeps going but +/- this arbitrary value (1000) the velocity line is flat. It's like it's hitting some kind of limit somewhere. I have nothing set on any of the keyframe properties (no clamps, no zero anything, etc). The interpolation is spline. This happens whenever the velocity gets to that limit, and not starting/stopping at a given keyframe. It is happening to all objects in the scene. I've changed the project scale units and unit display options, and still nothing helps.

 

What is going on here?


Size of Mograph community?

06 June 2013 - 07:37 PM

This was brought up in another thread, but I thought we could expand on it here. How big is the mograph community? USA and global? 500? 5000? Has anyone seen any real data on this lately?

 

And no, I don't know exactly how to define this (if they use AE, # of C4D licences, etc...) because I don't know how whoever may have collected data on this has defined things.


Random UV offsets on clones

03 June 2013 - 08:06 PM

I'm trying to get random UV offsets on the textures of clones of a mograph object. Basically I just want to offset the layered noise I have distressing these clones' texture. What am I missing here?
