  5. hell ya boys . You both owe me beers lol. Check out the slick as hell work . http://motionographer.com/ http://motionographer.com/aicp-2008-southw...r-open-credits/
  6. A big thing for me is the integration with AE . Not that I am a expert in Maya or Max at all but I have had so much more of an easy time getting stuff back and forth from AE to C4D then other packages . I would like to see something like Fume FX for C4D for simulations/smoke.

    pause nyc?

    Day 1 Gmunk MK12 and Joseph Kosinski for sure . Its just me or did the 2nd version of the Quantum titles rock . Seems like the final titles were a bit client approved I wish the 2nd round made it to the end way sexier. Day 2 Hush BTRY and Buck BTRY's process on the texture mapping for the titles was off the wagon. What happened to BNS that was like watching paint dry very under prepared preso. I love Mark Romaneks work but man did he not touch base with the crowd at all . Like how he skipped right over Logan and talking about the mograph work. But much respect for his work.

    TADA in nyc

    MK12,Gmunk*Bradley) ,Joseph Kosinski and Mark Romanek rocked it today . Gmunk never is without energy . Mk12 showed some killer motion tests for new bond film titles and gfx and there initial tests were better then what the "client approved " version was that made it to the film. Seems like they studied up on some my buddy Mark Coleran's UI for the new "surface" table in Quantum of Solace
  9. Think this is my 7 or 8th term with FXPHD cant recommend it enough . Shit the BKGD classes alone are worth it. We gave away a free OCT term at the last AENY meetings FXPHD are good friends and great supporters of AENY.

Just a teaser for November expect to see C4D 11 with all the trimmings.
  15. Puppet tool was a bad choice for a great tool . To bad it wasnt updated in CS4 . Instead of the corner pin name should have been called what it is a"real time deformation tool" And the choice to not include IK in AE man that stings.

    My vote after seeing this in person and checking out the calibration able to be done with it using X-rite technology would go to the HP Dreamcolor. http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF...67-3648397.html This things rivals some Eizo's I have worked on and is actually cheaper then some Eizo's as well. Hp dropped the price from 3499 to 2499 but this is for needing your work to be spec on color accuracy . I will agree in some cases the Apple ACD is good but it is lacking behind alot of the new displays and Apple hasnt touched it in 2 yrs(rumor of Macworld updates swirl now) Cant rule out higher ned NEC as well for broadcast and film work.
  17. Not sure if Andrew talked to this kid already but ya pretty un original . Next person on the chopping block is Harry wait till some .ru site pops up called greyishmachine.ru with all Harry's stuff.

    This is why alot of us cannot wait for the RED plug in to AE being able to pull in native R3D files without having to batch files in compressor which takes forever. At IBC Apple said native support was coming but then again they said that at NAB as well and were are we today ?
  19. Next meeting: Thursday, August 28th, 2008 The Time: 6:45 PM - 9:00 PM The Place: We have a new location that can sit up to 400 people!!!! P.S. 41 116 West 11th St., NYC (corner of 11th Street and 6th Ave.) The food: Sorry - but due to site rules - no food this time. If you can live for 2 hours without eating, you'll have a great time!

Our Lineup Includes: Phillip Niemeyer from Brooklyn-based art and design studio Double Triple will be coming to talk about some recent work and collaboration with filmaker Ryan Junnell for the fun stop motion work in Spoon:You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb music video. Tim and Mike Rauch aka Rauch Brothers Animation have a great animated short film called "German in the Woods" in association with StoryCorps.They will share and talk about the process. Tim and Mike have a great traditional animation background and unique visual aesthetic that comes through in their animation. Hope you all can make it out.

    Its funny because FXPHD founders frequent this site as well only a matter of time before this person is ousted from FXPHD.
  23. Simple fact is alot of this is based off Andrew Kramers free tutorials with his own twist on them . He took what he learned from Andrew and actually made something really cool.
  24. http://www.filemaker.com/products/bento/overview.html been using this for about 3 months pretty nice .
