  1. Hey Guys, I have created a training resource for anyone new to After Effects. Check it out and I'd love to hear your thoughts. http://aftereffectsbeginner.com/ Thanks Liam
  2. Anyone else seen this... Missed the beta but very interested in seeing this in action. Its a good direction considering the way adobe is hammering the nails into its coffin. https://medium.com/cavalry-animation/introducing-cavalry-cfb95c37f8be Very interested if some of you have tried it and would love to hear your thoughts! Cheers Liam
  3. Yeah there is so much good stuff out there. In terms of books this one is killer... https://www.amazon.com/Animators-Survival-Kit-Richard-Williams/dp/0571202284 Everything you learn in this is great for motion graphics as its all essentially animation. I have never read it as a book but just dive into it every now and then.
  4. Great reel and that makes sense on the 60fps.
  5. Hey, Are you just producing the content or will you be playing it back live too? TD is great but i’d stick to what you know, if you don’t have to playback content then avoid complicating things with TD. If you do there are simpler options for playback. Will it be audio reactive or pre rendered content. Depending on the style of music you should be able to break down each track and build some style frames from there. My workflow is break down the tracks, design a style, create a few loops per track, learn to mix them well to the music. Repeat for each track. Creating 60 mins of VJ content is a lot even for a proficient mograph artist. Keep it simple. Can you source any stock footage or does it need to be all custom? Cheers Liam
  6. Looking great Chris! Nice on that hidden logo I just didn't see it at all. Love the idea too. I've always fancied doing something like this (not about social media but within the realm) but have not yet had a concrete enough idea. Congrats again!
  7. Since Mograph.net has been down I've had started to listen to more and more podcasts on youtube. In the last few months have really been digging what these guys have to say. Anyone else been listening to them? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-b3c7kxa5vU-bnmaROgvog

    iMac 2017

    Yeah I know what you mean. I have been holding out for 3 years now and ive read that much on windows i'm very tempted. In saying that though i'd like to hear some tests when they come through. I've got the original 5k iMac and although great for what I want will soon start to slow down. Holding out for the Mac Pro?

    iMac 2017

    Anyone considering or too little too late? https://www.apple.com/au/imac-pro/specs/ I've heard of issues with over heating with the late 2014 models. I wonder if this has been addressed? Who is it actually aimed at? 3D?
  12. As a stand alone I have heard people using these - http://www.wacom.com/en-au/products/pen-computers/wacom-mobilestudio-pro Not researched a lot myself but it might be a good starting point. Wacom also do the Cintiq display although not a tablet it does connect to a machine.
  13. Great to hear how you are getting on with it! I'm very close to pulling the trigger too! Hows the transition been to Windows?
  14. I did see this as well... http://www.paulhpaulino.com/how-learning-new-skills-changed-my-career-as-a-digital-artist/
  15. Yeah formal art / design education is something I never had when I started. Couldn't recommend it enough. I started using AE but after a year or two realised my work was terrible. I didn't understand any design principles or any animation principles! After going to uni I learnt a hell of a lot but they kind of skipped the design part. Its always great to be in that environment when people can help each other. So some class would be great! Anyways this is not about me! Good luck and looking forward to hearing which path you take!
  16. Carey's videos are great. Flippyflop have you had any formal education in this before?
  17. Pretty much everyone I work with has one of these... (which is pretty much the same as what sbtread has linked) http://www.varidesk.com Mon - Fri I make it to the gym as much as possible and some good stretching too. Glutes, Achilles, etc...
  18. Yeah you would always just buy an old Mac Mini would could even double up as a file server...
  19. Cool and thanks for the insight. On the one hand I'm excited to not use Mac and build a spec'd out machine that I want... but I am a little scared its a case of thinking the grass is greener... we shall see. Thanks again!
  20. Has it been difficulty to get in the flow with using windows?
  21. Yeah thats the main one for me! One Commander seems to be getting good reviews but its interesting what AromaKat said.
  22. Yeah more info would be great. There are already some great threads that exists to help 'ease' the transition. http://mograph.net/board/index.php?showtopic=29763&page=1 A few more exist, very interesting and will help cure any anxiety you have. I'm in the process of making the transition haha. Building stage that is.
  23. I read that a lot about quick look. EDIT: I did just find this though... http://www.howtogeek.com/249557/how-to-add-os-xs-quick-look-feature-to-windows/
