Welcome Welcome to my site. What I've tried to assemble here is a resource for folks that want to learn more about expressions and scripting in After Effects. It's been quite a while since I've had time to update things, but I'm hopeful that I'll be able to roll out new topics more frequently now. I have an enormous backlog of content, and I'm trying to organize and present it in a way that should answer many questions that come up repeatedly in the AE forums.

Blog - Pimp Your After Effects Adobe After Effects is my go-to tool for most homebrew VFX and finishing tasks. It has the perfect blend of powerful features and editorial, layer-based ease of use. Is it as fast as a dedicated color grading system, or as responsive and powerful as Nuke for VFX compositing? No, but it offers a flexible, creative environment that’s tough to beat for the kind of creative, rough-and-tumble cinematic problem-solving that comprises most of my work. After Effects is a professional tool by any measure, but it is designed for a broad user base.

CEP 5 Super mega guide: Extending Adobe apps with HTML5+Node.js It’s not that widely known yet, but ever since the CC 2014 updates in June of this year, eight different Adobe tools now support a common extension framework based purely on web technologies.

Chris was with Sabine Heller when she came to pick me up from the train station in Connecticut. I had a great first impression of Chris as a very friendly, energetic, cooperative person, and of course an amazing rigger. ColorGHear “I would say that wizardry is a craft. Learn it… and suddenly there’s no such thing as magic anymore, it’s just something you do. I am not special, I just know wizardry, so it looks to everyone around me like I’m performing magic. But I’m not. I’m just employing what I have learned.” - Shian Storm ColorGHear was developed by filmmaker and colorist, Shian Storm who cut his teeth in the image manipulation world as a Colorist and Restoration Specialist at the famed Lowry Digital (now Reliance Mediaworks) made most famous by their work on Avatar, Benjamin Button, The Social Network, and their stunning restorations of Star Wars, Citizen Kane, and the entire library of Disney Animated classics.
