Coming to After Effects New York

Just wanted to let everyone know that I’ll be in New York this March 27, 2008 for the monthly AE meeting. I have a presentation planned and hopefully I can meet some of you at the meeting as well. Should be a lot of fun with our friend Aharon Rabinowitz too, so please come on down if you can.

On a side note:
Here is a higher resolution version of the Twitch Plug-in promo for those interested.
Watch Video Here

I also want to thank my friend Jacob Rowan for inviting Sam and I to the Clippers Basketball game last night; never sat so close before. Did I mention front row seats The coach actually called on me to play in the game, but my knee was acting up so I played anyways. True story.

Hey just like to say andrew that your plugin is amazing!!! A*

You should come to the UK and do lessons here, you have many fans over here and im definately one of them! Your work is awsome ....such an inspiration.

If i was in New york i would come and watch but im not :(

Good Luck Andrew!

March 6th, 2008 @ 4:44 am
If only we had the equivalent of these user groups over here in the UK :(

As for the basketball... now you're talking. I video basketball games over here in the UK. Not quite the same level of play but I'm always interested in new ideas and effects to add to spruce things up. So what did you come up with? Any new tutorial ideas come out of the visit?
March 6th, 2008 @ 4:47 am
Come to Kentucky! Trust me, you'll think you're in a foreign country.

Seriously, thanks for all you do. I can't wait for Twitch. Very cool!

March 6th, 2008 @ 5:07 am
Hope to see you there !
I will be there for sure !
March 6th, 2008 @ 5:21 am
Yup, film it and post it here....too bad the presentation is so far away
March 6th, 2008 @ 5:24 am
I moved to Arizona back in 2005 for schooling but maybe when I go home in June I can attend. Maybe I'll run into you maybe I wont.

What is your presentation on?
March 6th, 2008 @ 5:29 am
Great! Sadly i can't be there... long way from Sweden
March 6th, 2008 @ 5:36 am
Andrew Kramer can play Basketball?

Now its getting weird in here... :)
March 6th, 2008 @ 5:49 am
Andrew - I'll be attending the Adobe-Maxon: Power Integration Tour in New York on that same day being held at 247 W 42nd Street.

Do you know if this Is part of the same event you're attending?

March 6th, 2008 @ 6:00 am

March 6th, 2008 @ 8:56 am
You should have your NYAE presentation video taped for youtube or something. Just a thought.
March 6th, 2008 @ 9:20 am
Is it the 28th during the meeting or the 27th?
March 6th, 2008 @ 9:49 am

March 6th, 2008 @ 10:01 am
Will it be possible for you to tell us what is the content of your presentation? Tutorials?
March 6th, 2008 @ 10:06 am
Can't wait to meet you! Hopefully by then Aharon can find a place bigger than the small room at Pratt. AENY is blowing up!
Dean Doll
March 6th, 2008 @ 10:40 am
Any decent hotels near the Pratt Institute?
March 6th, 2008 @ 10:51 am
You should take sam with you and let him film you during the presentation, there is a lot of people like me, that dosent live in the USA and want to see your presentation. By the way Twitch is the start of something big for you, good job Andrew.
March 6th, 2008 @ 11:05 am
Ah... I need to make a trip out east soon.
March 6th, 2008 @ 11:23 am

March 6th, 2008 @ 11:38 am
It's a shame a webcast/webcam can't be set up so International users can watch and listen, ...maybe put a bug in the Organisers ears Andrew?

March 6th, 2008 @ 12:13 pm
Thanks for uploading the high res trailer. It really looks great as usual.

HOWEVER... I don't see those great particle effects you were showing previously!!!

(IMO...I think you should have included that arcing camera move closeup on the Twitch letters for extra impact)

Anyway, I wish you would do the same demo here in Los Angeles at MGLA!!!
March 6th, 2008 @ 12:14 pm
Well, it would be my first time attending one of these events. Teens allowed? Lol.

If so, I'm fortunate enough to be living in Brooklyn :D

Hope to see you there, Andrew.
March 6th, 2008 @ 12:32 pm
Hi everyone -

the meetings are free, but seating is limited. We're working on a bigger space, but no promises for the next meeting.

ANYONE is welcome to the meeting.

It's not part of the Maxon event, but we will be connecting with it. More info on that soon.

For the record - I co run-the group with JIM GEDULDICK (ToolFarm) and DENNIS RADEKE (Adobe) who without their contributions, the group would not continue to exist. I tend to be the front man (mostly because I can't stop talking), but the fact is that these guys do a TON of heavy lifting to make this group what it is - So make sure to shake their hands when you come.

See you there.

March 6th, 2008 @ 1:44 pm
IM GOING TO BE THERE TOO. I can't wait--I've been there last year and its the greatest thing for people who love after effects. can't wait to c andrew kramer there!
March 6th, 2008 @ 2:54 pm
Aharon Rabinowitz and Andrew Kramer you guys rock
March 6th, 2008 @ 3:10 pm
Awesome! I can't wait! You don't have to RSVP? Just show up?

Great stuff!
March 6th, 2008 @ 3:41 pm

When are you coming to chicago also?
March 6th, 2008 @ 5:05 pm
I would like to see it but from Poland its far away :d
March 6th, 2008 @ 5:30 pm
Hey Andrew,
If you ever do a thing in Sydney, Australia, I'm there.
March 6th, 2008 @ 7:29 pm
Hey AK, you should go to Antarctica!

I dont live there, nor have I ever been, but hell, since you will be touring the rest of the world, why not. I hear it is pretty cool. :)

If I didnt have my family to take care of, I would be driving down to NY tonight. Wish I could be there to meet the great one himself. Should be fun.
March 6th, 2008 @ 7:44 pm
I may be in Manhattan that weekend visiting my little brother. If I'm there, I will absolutely stop in.

Just a "TIP" for those who are going to attend, Bring a pad of paper and a pen
you may want to take notes, get phone numbers and web links, And of course
Andrew and Aharon's autograph :)
I can not attend, so if Andrew creates a blog about it, please fill us all in with the details.

March 6th, 2008 @ 11:50 pm
Found out about from one of your tutorials just this week.
I was so upset that I missed the meet up last Thursday.

I feel lucky living in the big apple and will definitely come.
March 6th, 2008 @ 11:54 pm
Yes, since we're all asking for you to go places, Andrew... you should come to Derry.. cuz we all float down here!

Beep beep!

What are you going to be speaking about at the conference? Or is that a surprise?

Paul Del Vecchio
March 7th, 2008 @ 12:50 am

I'm a Volunteer Firefighter, last time you came, I had responded to a brush fire earlier that afternoon, and long story short, a tree fell and knocked out my chief, True Story. I spent the rest of the day in the hospital while my cheif was getting cat-scanned I was extremely upset and coudn't come into the city in time I couldn't wait for you to come again. I live about a half hour from the city and will be there. I love your website and am looking forward to seeing you and Aaron Rabinowitz.
March 7th, 2008 @ 1:49 am

The high quality video doesn't work for me!
"Error -2048: H"

Any idea what I can do to fix this?
March 7th, 2008 @ 5:39 am

March 7th, 2008 @ 7:13 pm
If only I could get to New York... any plans on coming to Vegas? Regarding the Twitch Promo; are the sound effects (sans the music) used in the promo the sounds that will be included in the Twitch download? Just curious.

March 7th, 2008 @ 7:19 pm
Wow, all these crazy places for andrew to visit.. lol just come up here to Canada... You can travel by land if you wish xP

Sometimes i swear im the only Canadian Vidographer/VFX guy in the world... of Canada..
March 7th, 2008 @ 7:32 pm
Hey Andrew,

Any chance you'll drop by Toronto for the Maxon / Adobe power integration tour?

Cram / Manny
March 8th, 2008 @ 4:12 am
Damn I live in the UK and Im going to NY in April... :(
March 8th, 2008 @ 5:24 am
Hey what's up , Mario Suárez here, for Today I have a really interesting question. I will change my station so, I want some recomendations about the features my new pc need to have, for a good-profetional video editing. like: Wich mainboard is better AMD or Intel? Is it 2GB Ram good? Wich is the best video aceleration card Gforce or Nvidia? How much video memory do I need? What about the HDD?. I really want to make profetional videos. So Andrew if you read this please mail me, beacause Im getting insane with all this PC preforms, and I think I gonna blow my head.

PS: If you see Sam tell him he is super hot, if you don`t see him, dont tell him nothing. :)

March 8th, 2008 @ 7:31 am
Holyshit, I wish I was in the US, Anyways will meet u sometime in the near future.

Happy Dreams - Sandy
Florian Isopp
March 8th, 2008 @ 7:41 am
I'm coming to the US once I've finished and graduated here, so I ought to buy your whole troupe a couple of drinks XD
Just another 5 months to wait :P
March 8th, 2008 @ 7:41 am
Love your "Tutorials" ON AE 7 to CS3. Start on learning effects from all your "Tutorials" It is fun and easy to under even I'm a beginer.

March 8th, 2008 @ 6:54 pm
You should stop into B&H while you're in the city... I'm sure I'm not the only only one who works there who would like to meet you.
Enjoy NYC!
March 9th, 2008 @ 5:17 am
Oh, I wanna meet you too! But I am in Hong Kong.....Remember to tell us more about your trip later in this blog...Please tell Sam that I like seeing him acting in your videos....he is very very professional!!!!
Rabelista Studios
March 9th, 2008 @ 10:23 am
Hi Andrew,

Maybe it's a good Idea to make a short video of all of the shortcuts in After Effects, like "P" is position, "F4" is for 3D layers or blending options etc.
March 9th, 2008 @ 10:29 am
that's a shame. I'm in the UK. Although I spend a lot of time in LA, I rarely get to the big A...
I would just like to say " Aharon and Andrew, you guys are the best". I have learned so much from you both over the years. Keep it up!

March 9th, 2008 @ 10:29 am
Hy Andrew! You Have A Large Number of Fans From Pakistan Also, So Think About Us Too
March 9th, 2008 @ 10:55 am
Andrew, you know better to play sports with a bum knee. What was the couch thinking? You're dangerous, Andrew. I don't want to be your wingman.
March 9th, 2008 @ 6:46 pm
无奈 I’m not living in USA too!
March 10th, 2008 @ 1:06 am

March 16th, 2008 @ 12:17 pm
Hey andrew alot of people check out my demon faces on Youtube they ask me how to do it and send them here and tell to tell you that Ronnie Rokk from Rokk Productions sent you, so I hope you have been getting more sales on your stuff. I have bought everything but Eveloution so far, I will be getting that soon though. Just bought Twitch today, can't wait to start using it. Ronnie Rokk, Rokk Productions
TL Movie Studios
March 24th, 2008 @ 7:29 pm
Someone should film this event for the rest of us? Perhaps post it on youtube or maybe even Andrew's co-workers can film it and he can post it on this site?

The rest of us would love to join, but can't.
So please film it and post it! :D

Cheers from Canada!
