Making Some New Stuff

It seems there is a lot of interest in the new CS4 so I’ve been spending some time making demos for a few of the new features. I’ll post some stuff when I get a chance, I’ve been working on several new projects including a new DVD planned for November and the second part of the Meteor series. Until then…

With all respect, i think Andrew you shouldn't tell specific things when you are anyway gonna postpone them..it just makes us all anxious and this is not the first time already. :( i know you r busy and etc,etc, but just use expressions "soon", "very soon", you know :) just a very warm criticism.Peace

What Happened to Riot Gear 2? Last I recall you were taking suggestion for a early 2008 release.

I really want to see the new dynamic link from Premiere to After Effects and if it actually works smoothly. In the past we've had dynamic link from AE to Premiere....Efficient Dynamic Link has been a long time coming and I'm really excited about the revamped version but also skeptical.

hes tutorials are basicly the best promotion adobe could get.
if you watch all the normal tutorials people think its just for some commercials. watching tutorials on videocopilot it looks like you can make your own superhero movie.

Ah, the smell of a new DVD on the horizon...

This might be off topic, but I've noticed all the thumbs on the home page and all round the site have been touched up (enhanced) <> Things overall on the site are looking awesome, thanks for keeping us entertained and inspired all this time.

PS, be prepared for a small server crash when the new dvd comes out, the pilgrims are already at your door with their sickles and hoes... (open to interpretation)

Later!

hmm...
I don`t know, what is so great on the new After Effects?

Here in Germany are a magazine called "Macwelt"
And there was a 12-page-report about the CS4

"Die paar Änderungen in After Effects CS4 rechtfertigen keinen vollen Versionssprung."

In English:
"The few changes in After Effects CS4 not justify full version jump."

BluRay discs are $15-35 per disc, and the write speed at the moment is very slow.

http://news.cnet.com/Blank-Blu-ray-discs-start-shipping/2100-1041_3-6059604.html

I'd imagine it's purely a cost/time issue and when it is affordable we'll start seeing VideoCopilot products on BluRay discs.
