Monday Fever

I almost thought I was through with my infection, but today it has struck back with full force and I’ve had a slight fever the whole night and through the day. That being the case, my plans to do some work on the Error Code Database have crumbled. I really need to catch up, as […]

Continuing yesterday’s excursion into the obscure world of After Effects‘ 3D and plug-ins latching on to it, a very common question cropping up all over forums on what the difference is/ will be between Cinema 4D Lite/ Cineware and Element 3D. The long and short version is, that one offers what the other doesn’t and […]
