Pre-Keyed Footage from All Bets are Off

Aharon must be working a double overtime behind my back, because the last time I checked, he had a new baby, was workin’ his tail off for All Bets are Off Productions and running the AENY group on the side.

Now, I find out that he’s published a collection of pre-keyed footage?  That’s not strange is it? Well, what if I told you it was over 45,000 clips, with 500 actors and search options galore!  All right Aharon, out with it, have you perfected human cloning???

Check out this great resource – I’m sure I don’t have to speak about Aharon’s quality or his commitment to an excellent product.  I even saw the word ‘free clips’ on the site if you register.  Schaweet!

So, for your viewing pleasure…

64 Bit: The best $300 (or less!) you can spend this year?

I’ve had some more thoughts on the ideas of 64bit and it’s value in light of this poor economy.  I mean what’s the point of talking about 64bit if you can’t actually use it?  With that in mind, I set out to see how much moving to 64bit on the PC platform would actually cost the average consumer.

Adobe Beginner Classes Episode #14 is live!

The dry spell for ABC episodes is over my friends and the proof is in the fact that I’ve now published a second Adobe TV episode in as many weeks!  (Now, I’ve really got to get started on that next one!)

Anyway, in this episode, we spend a little more time in the design (read ‘obsessing’) of some things you can do to make your 3D text pop inside of After Effects as well as taking a simple approach to animating it.
