Your not so annual Particular

Trapcode‘s Particular, or as I lately have been calling it Tadpole Testicular *lol* is an odd tool in terms of its development. I loved the original version back then in 2004 and I loved v2 just as much, but powerful as it may be, this plug-in is one of those tools that didn’t evolve as quickly […]

Modo+P, Cinema+RF, Element+SW

A bit of news is making the rounds, which has people a bit jazzed up with excitement and that news is Modo 10.1 coming and as a Public Beta at that to boot. Before getting too carried away with dances of joy at the prospect of trying out the new procedural tools, you might want […]

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 […]
