Just got back from AENY

I’m back at my hotel after an exciting After Effects meeting in New York. There was a great turnout of 300+ people primed for some After Effects tips. I’ll share some more info about the meeting tomorrow for those who could not make it.

If you DID go to the meeting and would like to share some thoughts or even a photograph, I’m sure a lot of people would enjoy seeing what it was like. One of the best parts was getting to meet so many of you in person and I appreciate everyone that stopped by to say hi at the end.

I had a great time and goodnight from New York.

I had a great time. Andrew had a lot of very interesting tips on color correction, and on little things that make the product look better. I especially enjoyed the diagrams that Andrew drew, they helped out a lot ;-)

If only I coulda been there... Ah-well, glad to hear it went well!

i thought the meet was very helpful, didn’t think i will find a post by Andrew that fast here. Andrew, this was the first time i see you in person and you were as funny as ever.

the only thing i am sad about is that the Royalty Free desk i won is not working.

oh, and is the guy that asked you about your wife and AE. is he your friend? he was talking to you in a foreign language at the beginning of the meeting.

I was there! I'm telling my associates that you're the reason I'm so advanced with AE ( which is odd to them because I'm actually a composer! ). My girlfriend is going to school in the area, working on her MD/PhD. Anyway, I was impressed! More than enough info to share with these film school losers. I can't believe how little film schools teach about post production.
March 27th, 2009 @ 3:21 am
some pics would be great!

thanks a lot Andrew for stopping by, this i was there when yo came by the last time and this time i even was able to ask you a question or two...in the bath room and about twitch...which was never answered ...lol
by the way when that woman and her son gave you cookies...how was they did you eat them...

also
that stuff you did with PAINT was crazy LOL

OH YEAH DUDE!!!!
I LOVE THAT TUTORIAL YOU GAVE, THAT EFFECT WAS SOME REAL DRAGON BALL Z STUFF IN WHICH I WON A $500 BET WITH A FRIEND OF MINE, I TOLD HIM THAT YOU SOME HOW YOU GOING TO DO A DRAGON BALL Z EFFECT, AND HE SAID NO YOU WASN'T CAUSE ITS TO SIMPLE FOR YOU... AND LAST NIGHT....LOLOLOL
YOU SURE DID WITH THE FIRE BALL DOWN THE CITY...LOL

THANKS ANDREW
Chris
March 27th, 2009 @ 3:45 am
Hey, whoa! Andrew, you got cookies? Well, do you have enough for everyone?
March 27th, 2009 @ 3:53 am
You were awesome man. Full house despite the rain. Still laughing about the "distracted" camera man. : )

I brought my son (11) who is currently working his way through your basic training and is fascinated with making Lego stop motion movies. The Paint Program portion of your presentation sparked his imagination. We talked about how you can use a simple tool like that to pre viz an effect you might be considering or to story board.

Tip highlights for me. Using Brainstorm with Color Channels. Using inverted grunge backgrounds to create camera lens anomalies. The concept of planned imperfections.

So thanks again for all of your generous efforts. Have a great time in the city.

Andrew,

I was in New York last night but all I saw was this flaming energy ball exploding through Times Square. I wish we had a video but it seemed the one guy who did have a camera got distracted by this billboard of this hot girl and his lens was pretty dam dusty. Great job, Crammer!! I liked your take on realism and color correction. You and Aharon are like AE celebrities.
March 27th, 2009 @ 5:11 am
last time you went to NY, you took a picture and it turned up to be one of the coolest tuts: The Energy.
What can we expect this time?

I had EVERY intention of going and I'm kinda pissed I couldn't but I was swamped with work that night...I hope to make it next year. Glad to hear it went well.

I want to be there, but no problem i'm waiting for the pics and the blog sposts.
Mr Kramer your tutorials are very interesting, compared with others who are really bored.
I was in the week, giving me a tour of other sites are useful and also make a great effort but they are very dull and heavy, I think that is something worth commenting on so you do not lose their freshness and good humor

Thank You
March 27th, 2009 @ 6:21 am
hey i was first to comment and now its gone did you delete it andrew?!?!
Vince
March 27th, 2009 @ 6:23 am
But Andrew, the real question is did you find out who the masked man was that is in your picture from last year?
jvf
March 27th, 2009 @ 6:37 am
as a new AE artist, but an experienced still image compositor, what i took from it was to really think about how the thing you are compositing affects the environment it is comped into. The use of stills of dust etc. to create lens artifacts was great.

thanks!

March 27th, 2009 @ 7:41 am
For those of you too far away to attend....AK is just as funny in person (if not more) as he is in his tutorials!
Be on the look out for his completed HD action essentials promo. He showed us some shots (and video) of the RED camera on location with Sam dodging bullets - LOL Oh and that guy who rolled up in his 5 series BMW looking out the window was too funny !!!
Kramer was on a roll, rambling about one technique to another. I really appreciate what you bring to the AE community and how willing you are to share the knowledge. Getting to take a pic with you was my highlight(although I lost my camera, but doubled back and found it in the street...whew)! Kramer, the Rockstar of AE! Until your next eastcoast visit - keep doing what you do, you're the best!

March 27th, 2009 @ 9:41 am
Andrew - are these events ever officially recorded by someone? It would be great if they were. Sort of like The Foundry did with their Nuke Masterclasses in London. They recorded them and posted them for free on their website. Just a thought. Cheers.

Hmmm i would kike to see that dragon ball z stuff in a tutorial xD

It sucks that im 15000 miles away from aeny :D

It wasn't anything related to dragons or fire but an energy of sorts flying through NY. I'll see what comes of it.

Hey everyone thanks for the comments about the meeting myself and Aharon run the meetings for the community for the purpose of inspiring you to get out and do your own work and take it to the next level. Andrew always rocks when he comes out to AENY and Yes I agree the MS paint was my favorite part of the preso as well.

The plugin Andrew mentioned is called Lensecare by http://www.frischluft.com/
I like Andrew use all his plug ins and that arent that expensive at all.

Thanks again to all who braved the raining weather and Andrew for making it another great meeting. Stay tuned to the AENY.org website and sign up for the newsletter to get more info on upcoming meetings.

Thanks,

I wanted to go, too. But it's pretty hard these days to travel from europe to the us. You have to register and wait for approval. For everybody who wants to go next time, a flight from germany to ny and back is only 270€ and together with the current exchange rate you could have a nice shopping trip. :) Anyway great to hear everybody had a cool meeting. Can't wait for some pictures and videos.

March 27th, 2009 @ 4:09 pm
Last night was very cool. In addition to learning some great stuff from Andrew (and winning a copy of Pro Scores), I also got some good networking done as well. I highly recommend that anyone interested in pursuing VFX should plan to at least come to one of the meetings. I'm very glad I made the trek from Connecticut.

BTW, I'd like to offer Andrew a personal thanks. I've been an audio production junky and voice over artist for ten years. About 2 years ago, I started getting into video production. I got After Effects as part of the CS bundle, which I bought primarily for Photoshop and Premiere. I owned it for probably a year without even knowing what it was used for. Over the last year, with guidance from the VideoCopilot tutorials, I've found a tremendous creative outlet in an area that I had no idea I would even be good at. I just landed a gig as a graphic designer for a local news station, in addition to doing a lot of freelance graphics work. I can't thank the VC team enough for helping to give me this opportunity.
March 27th, 2009 @ 4:13 pm
Silly Speedbreaker, I think we all know Andrew IS Spiderman.
Can't you see the resemblance?

My favorite part of the presentation was when something was taking longer than expected and you distracted the nerd crowd with paint shop drawings of semi trucks.
I also recommend rattling a set of keys to call attention away from animating whoopses.
March 27th, 2009 @ 8:27 pm
Loved the meeting woo hooo loved it cant wait for the next one lol wanna take a lot of pics and interview the man himself lol Aron and Andrew are the gods of After Effects. Like lil' Jon says YEEEAAAAAH! WHAAAAAAT! OOOOOKKKKK! lol

Just out of curiosity, what takes you to NY vs. other places? Assumming the pop density? Not sure... but was curious if you had plans to hit other locations as well? Maybe you do this cause you have other things to do in NY, I have no clue. That is why I am asking :) Would be inetersted in seeing an AK tour :) Heck I would even help with trying to gathering funding...

@ Dale Ficken:

AENY:
Adobe After Effects New York (AENY) is an association for professionals and enthusiasts using Adobe After Effects and related software to create imagery for video, film, and other media. Formed in January 2007, AENY’s goals are to foster a community of After Effects users who wish to discuss industry experiences, share ideas, get advice, and keep up with the latest AE news and technology.

The group is co-run by Jim Geduldick, Dennis Radeke and Aharon Rabinowitz.

http://www.aeny.org/home.html

---------------
Any questions ? :)
March 29th, 2009 @ 6:31 am
Thanks Dale - Let me answer a few more before they come out:

1. AENY meets almost every month (although we are not meeting this April).

2. Usually the meetings are on the last thursday of the month, although november/december we use a dfferfent day because those are usually around major holidays.

3. The meetings are free.

4. You don't have to bring anything with you.

5. You don't have to let us know ahead of time that you're coming.

6. There is a free raffle at the end for prizes. We give you a ticket when you get there and you can win an AE-related prize. Some of the prizes are worth more than $1000 dollars.

7. Jim is the guy who wears the hat. Dennis (when he can make it) is the Nordic-looking tall dude with the soul patch. Aharon is the guy with "the hair." Trust me - You'll know when you see us.

8. Finally, the meetings go from 6:45PM to 9:00PM (and sometimes a little over).

Hope that helps.
March 29th, 2009 @ 6:35 am
By the way, I am in no way authorized to represent him, but if you want to temp Mr. Kramer out to your area for a presentation, at the very least, you'll need to have a good steak place around there. I mean goooooooood. There are other factors, I'm sure, but I can tell you, the man enjoys a good hearty NY-style steak.

Aharon!! Nice to see you here man, listen Scotland has the best steaks, we have Aberdeen Angus cows, or 'coo's' as we call them, hows about Andrew and Aharon rock over the ocean?? I used to be a chef and I can cook steaks perfect to taste. How do you take your Steak bro?

HA HA... cool, thanks for all the info. I am in the midwest (St. Louis) and we have a couple really good steak places in the area... so that part is covered. Now I just need to find a local group similar to yours... or make one :)

Thanks again!

Any chance we will ever get a well-explained color correction tutorial. One that would provide tips on how to fix shots which were differently lit, to actually look like they are lit the same?

Thank you, glad you had a good time. Wish I could be there.

Andrew, thanks again for the awesome seminar. It was a pleasure getting to meet you and getting you to sign my copy of Evolution, even if it was the darkest one I could have brought!

Here's a strip of some pictures I shot, for those who couldn't make it.
