All Bets Are Off Productions

All Bets Are Off Productions
Last year, when Adobe announced a subscription-only model and that, as a result, customers would thus no longer be able to (maintain the illusion that they could) outright buy and own their software for eternity, there was a lot of hullabaloo. At that time, I did my research on both sides of the issue, and did my best to present a clear and objective understanding of the situation in two blog posts, HERE and HERE. I’m going to address one question that came up, to see how Adobe is handling it: With customers locked into a subscription, what’s to make them keep their promise of feature rich updates? To me, the answer to that question is pretty self-evident: if time went on and Adobe didn’t keep to its word, people would very quickly see that, talk about it and Adobe would look really bad – along with that, new and long-time users would not sign up for the cloud. Well, time has gone on – So where are we today?

Live audio/visual performance at Elektra festival, Montreal, Canada, 03 may 2013. Curated by Yatra Arts.

Nick Campbell Congratulations to Michael Rinnan for winning the Five Second Project for March. His entry had a great concept and was outfitted with excellent lighting, atmosphere, camera movements and sound design. We wanted to know a little bit more about Michael’s entry, so we asked him a few questions regarding his workflow and the process for creating his winning piece. Where do you work? What is your title? Tell us about what you do at your company.

Expressions - Geometry Circular Functions As we mentioned in the previous section, there's a close relationship between the trigonometric functions and circles—so close that some older textbooks call these functions 'circular functions'. One reason for this relationship is that the set of all right triangles with the same hypotenuse forms a circle, with the hypotenuse defining its radius. As you can see, the perpendicular sides of the right triangles correspond to the X- and Y-coordinates of points on the circle, relative to the circle's center. We therefore can use the trigonometric functions to find the coordinates of points on a circle, in the same way we found the length of an unknown side of a right triangle, above:

AE Portal by Rich Young Here's another summary of the last week or so of news on After Effects-assorted tutorials and tools, animation aids, CC Hair, son of Ken Burns, expressions, and more. Create Your Own Little Fuzzy Friends by Ran Ben Avraham leverages the rarely used CC Hair plug-in, as well as iExpressions by Mamoworld for animation. Harry Frank used CC Hair for some nice looking grass in Making It Look Great 3, while Andrew Kramer had another good take on CC Hair in FREE PROJECT: Fiber Particles. [Update: see also Andrew Kramer's bonus jungle scene that used CC Hair effects to create some overgrown bits of grass on 3D text. Earlier Harry Frank posted Particular Grass, a free AE project file. On another tangent, Mattrunks used CC Hair in Hair Morphing - hairy typography.]

50+ Most Amazing Adobe After Effects Tutorials You Need to Learn Adobe After Effects is commonly used for creating visual effects and motion graphics. It allows users to animate, alter, and composite media in 2d and 3d space with various built-in tools and third party plug-ins. This software is really amazing and powerful. It’s even more interesting if you have some tutorials to start learning. In this post, we collected the best Adobe After Effects tutorials and feature it in here. Victoria Nece This FAQ’s a bit out of date. Check out the new KinectToPin website for the latest version of the software and how to use it — it’s dramatically easier now. It’s been pretty incredible seeing KinectToPin generate interest all over the world, but I’ve also had a lot of feedback about how difficult and frustrating it is to get it working.
