Do you remember you’re first date with After Effects?
In the year 2000 after reaching the limits of Final Cut Pro’s compositing and special effects toolset, I decided to see other people. That’s when After Effects came into the picture with her floating windows and layered timeline, we began spending many hours together. Some of the first stuff we did involved motion graphics, light rays, radio waves and many bad font choices.
The graphic above was part of a corporate video I did in February of 2003 for a tech company that loved high-tech catch phrases. I may try and dig up some even older work if I can find it. But, maybe it is better left forgotten
I imagine some of you started out as graphic designers and wanted to bring visuals to life or perhaps you were a video editor that wanted more control of graphics and FX… Do you remember when you first got into After Effects?
