Bad got even worse (again)!

Yupp, exactly what you would expect: It’s NAB, it’s Adobe, it’s the latest After Effects update being totally screwy. You have to hand it to them – if there was an award for “Most reliably predictable mess-up with every new version”, Adobe‘s video division in Seattle would have an entire showcase full of them. I […]

Modo, you suck!

It used to be that I was a big fan of Modo, but over the last few versions that enthusiasm has waned to the point of a freezing zero. With the latest version 12 announcement coinciding with NAB as usual I’m even more convinced I would never buy an upgrade even if I wasn’t in […]

It’s NAB, it’s AE, it’s ridiculous

By now I guess we should have gotten used to it, but regardless of my declared half-retreat from all this stuff it still pains me every time Adobe keep churning out these unmotivated updates for After Effects.

With things ramping up for NAB the usual wave of news – some more, some less interesting – starts building and so it should come as no surprise that the usual suspects join the dance. Traditionally one of those has always been NewTek and despite Lightwave running as an independent business unit these days, somehow […]

The Original

Aside from having limited access to it way back then with version 4 (my computer sucked, so I actually never pursued it fully), I’ve long been salivating over Nuke and finally there’s a chance to get a bit into it (again) with the “free” non-commercial edition. As much as I hate to say it, nothing […]

Sneaky 901

NAB will be starting tomorrow and while we’re waiting for Adobe to release their news for After Effects “oooh-ficially”, here’s a little diversion for you: modo 901 Sneaky Peeky FXGuide also have some complimentary info on other areas of the new version As always, the forums are burning with speculation, but suffice it to say […]
