>Dale at Creative Workflow Hacks keep churning out useful scripts. Lately he’s been focusing on his FCPToAE script, and there’s new updates almost every week, including CS3 compatibility. – Jonas Photo by Joel Washing _________ From _________

>The Reason AE CS3 is Faster On Windows than on OS X

>Surprised that After Effects CS3 is faster on Windows XP than on Mac OS X on the same hardware? There’s two reasons that the current OS X version of After Effects is slower:1. The code generated by Apple’s compiler is not quite as fast as the Windows compilers that Adobe uses.2. Windows XP has been […]

>DPI in Video: Totally Useless

> DPI = dots per inch is only relevant when you output digital images to an output device, such as a printer (or a display,) since DPI is a measure of how many of pixels the output device will show on a line that is one inch long. That means that the DPI measurement is […]
