MOVEing and Shaking

I gave a talk this morning at the AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Artists) MOVE Conference at New York University (yep, that’s right, on a Saturday morning). Luckily I had a nice turnout for my session which was about using After Effects, Illustrator, and Bridge to process video with the Live Trace feature from Illustrator (check out my tutorial here), and an introduction to Flash Video workflow using After Effects and Flash Professional. I also got the chance to talk to many attendees, most of them After Effects users, and hear about the great stuff they’re doing with our products. I also got many good feature requests for AE in particular.

So my 10am session was right before the “headliner,” which in this case was Laurie Anderson.

I guess that made me her opening act (should I update my resume?). What a sweetheart she was, and her session was fascinating (the most interesting part being the work she did as the first ever Artist in Residence for NASA).
