>OpenEXR in After Effects CS3: Open Source Plugin Imports/Exports All Channels in Float

>This brings tears to my eyes; a free plugin that will let you import, rearrange and use all the available channels in OpenEXR files into After Effects CS3 float projects. Brendan Bolles has kindly provided the world with a beta version of a set of four 32 bpc-aware plugins, complete with a sample project and […]

>CS3 Help is Online with User-added Tips and Comments

>This might not seem as sexy as some of the other new features of Adobe’s CS3 suite, but the entire help files for all the new applications are now accessible on the web. But the coolest part isn’t a continually updated and refined manual that is searchable, it is that you can add your own […]

>Public Beta of After Effects and Premiere Pro Available Now

>The rumors leaked a couple of weeks ago, but the public betas of After Effects CS3 and Premiere Pro CS3 are now available, beginning today, for both Windows and OS X. The normally bundled third-party effects (Keylight, Cycore Effects, and Color Finesse) are not included in the preview. Also, a very important note (apart from […]

>The Best Graphics Training Available Enters Term 4

>If you only give yourself one thing this year, here’s my advice: sign up for the new term of fxphd, the highest-level graphics training available online. Term 4 is just about to start (even though you can sign up later) with a bunch of interesting classes lined up. Not only do you get great classes, […]

>Ten Years of Interviews with the Prime Minister Airs Tonight

>Tonight at 8 PM it will air, the first of four 1-hour episodes with secret interviews with Sweden’s Prime minister for the last eight years. I was lucky to be asked to provide the graphics for this show, which will be all that the Swedish media will cover in the next week. It’s really quite […]

>Camera Mapping in After Effects

>Stu Maschwitz has just posted an entry to a user-generated-ad contest, created entirely in After Effects and Premiere Pro. Unfortunately the compression doesn’t do the spot justice, but an interesting fact is that the aircraft carrier is actually a still photograph mapped onto a 2D solid inside After Effects. Stu’s posted about the behind-the-scenes techniques […]

>Video Codec Advice

>I’ve been posting a lot at Adobe Forums: After Effects lately, after I unexpectedly was asked to become an Adobe Community Expert. I just thought I’d share a reply I just made to a question about how to avoid quality reduction while rendering and moving video between applications. Perhaps I’ll make a small table listing […]

>Floating in 32-bit Space (where no one can hear you scream)

>Update: I’ve added a bunch of links contributed by Ben Grossman. Sure, you might have been able to use 32-bit/HDR/float in After Effects 6.5 by using Stu Maschwitz’s plugin eLin, but if you’re anything like me, you never got around to it. It wasn’t until the 32-bit mode in the AE 7.0 beta that I […]

>Export from After Effects to 3ds max

>Despite its name, the new version 2.0 of MAX2AE actually goes both ways, letting you start your designs in After Effects and at a later stage import the AE cameras and lights into 3ds max for further work, and then re-import into AE again.As someone who has sort of left 3ds max for Cinema 4D […]

>Free Plugin for Relighting 3D Inside After Effects

>Do you hate to go back and forth between your 3D app and After Effects, just to tweak the lighting so that it will match your composite? If you render out a quick normal map, you can easily and quickly move and change the lighting of your 3D renders. Now there’s a free alternative to […]
