Make CC (CS7) work for you!

Because last year’s edition still ranks as the top popular post on this little shabby blog of mine, I thought it might be a good idea to update and expand it a little for After Effects CC. Some things stay the same, some things have improved, several things have gotten worse, actually, so let’s cut […]

Go Bananas!

The plot thickens…. As expected, Plant Factory will integrate tightly with Vue. For now we have some banana plants rendered in a misty valley along with the simplified UI in Vue.
