CC 2015 is awesome…

…well, not quite, but – irony of ironies – in my daily fishing on forums I just recorded my 600th After Effects error because of the unstable nature of that little bitch. I just noticed this when my Excel spreadsheet that I use to keep track of all this blinked. I’m hopelessly backlogged on bringing the […]

Rainbow Stars & Stripes

While I have my reservations about some constitutional freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Bill of Rights and I also take a dim view on the over-complicated, overboarding legal system over there, amazingly on a simplistic level it can be advantageous sometimes as recent Supreme Court ruling about any laws that prohibit same sex marriage are discriminatory […]

CC 2015 – The Sum of all Fears

It’s now one week after the 2015 release of Creative Cloud and calling it a complete disaster would be doing anyone favors.

CC 2015 – Fix and new Issues

Continuing yesterday’s listing, I can now happily report that Video CoPilot have fired out a compatible version of Element 3D. Check your account on their web site and download the latest update. Meanwhile, elsewhere it has been confirmed that loading (Sony) MXF files in After Effects (and possibly also Premiere Pro) is screwed. As they put […]

CC 2015 – The Damage so far

As with every new version of Adobe‘s programs over the years, the evil combination of genuine compatibility issues and their sloppy quality assurance hasn’t spared the 2015 release, so there’s all sorts of issues. Even only after one day a picture is forming, so here’s a brief summary of my observations and forum findings so […]
