Hey Hi Andrew,
First of all Thanking you a lot lot from the deep heart.
I am struggling a lot in the institutes where no single faculty is well trained to train the students,after watching your tuts i can say those faculties are just playing with the careers of the young artists.They said you are taking a wrong step leaving the institute, u cant get a good job.
But, I took the step n left quit the institute in between and started
watching your tuts n precised a lot in a yr at home.
And you know what, I made it, i got a well good job.
All thanks to you Andrew. You made my Career. God bless you dude.

It was great seeing you at NAB and finally getting a chance to thank you for getting my new career started...
As you said, it was ME who took the first step... but it was your early tutorials and the fun you were having that got me on the track I'm on now.
Thanks again Andrew.

Andrew Kramer Discusses After Effects and the Evolution of the VFX Industry NAB 2014
    1 year ago
    Thanks for the post, Lj!

    So, basically, AE CC has not any interesting new feature for AE users. Only the possibility of using single masks for each effect in the same layer. That's useful, but not enough. It seems like the best new features are actually for Premiere users, and not After Effects.

    The new tools for Spill Supresion are useful, yes, but the Red Giant Keying Suite already had those with the great Primatte Keyer, so... that's not something really new neither.

    I don't know. It seems like the evolution from CS5.5 to CS6 was HUGE, but not as much the evolution between CS6 and CC.

    Anyway, CS6 still being an awesome software (I still realizing new things on it each day), so maybe we'll not need the CC version.

    By the way, here there are my two latest videos, made in CS6 with a lot of Video Copilot stuff (plug-ins, like Element, Sure Target 2 and Optical Flares; and some free materials, like their lovely paper textures pack).

    - "The Grid" with some new tweaks and improvements:

    - And this motion graphics for the intro of an Spanish new TV series:

    I hope you enjoy! And please, as always, forget my poor level of English.

I'd say it went well. The audience treated you like a rock star with all the cheering, standing room only.

Your procedure for the iris graphics was good - gives me a few creative ideas, and I'm curious if this in-house circuit layout plugin will ever see the light of day. Or one could use real circuit layout software, but that was really cool.

Thanks man.

What are you cooking up there, Andrew? From those pics in your post, I suspect that you will be doing some 'aerial' work in LV - a virtual fly-by, perhaps? Have fun :)
