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.

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.

Element 3D V2: New Specular Model!
Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]
Sporting a New Design!
I’m not really sure how long it has been since we have redesigned the website but we thought it was time! The new design is focused on content so we finally made the page wider.

Element 3D V2 Official Release Date!
Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2! Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in! This update is insane! What can I say, we like to push the limits of technology and features, but […]
Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]

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!

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.

Hey what's up , Mario Suárez here, for plasmastudio.pe.nu. 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. :)

First of all thanks a lot for your big help that made me and my brother better designers in AF.

I hope that you can answer my question, how can I create that out focused-glowing particles used in your amazing (twitch promotion) and in (AF basic training promotion).

It will mean a lot if you answered this question.
Thanks again and god bless you and your family.

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.

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.

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!!!

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?
