Welcome to my Blog
Greetings. This is my first blog post and I'm excited to be able to establish a dialog with other people interested in After Effects as well as the general topics of motion graphics and visual effects. I thought I'd kick things off with a brief bio and my goals for this blog.
Bio: I've been in video and computer graphics for a while (anyone remember the Cubicomp Picturemaker?). After Cubicomp, I worked on DDR's and character generators at Abekas. It's hard to believe today that $60K in 1989 got you a DDR that could record 25 seconds (30 in PAL) of uncompressed video. I joined Adobe in 1995 and am the product manager for Adobe After Effects.
I have always been amazed by the strong sense of community among After Effects users going all the way back to the AOL COSA forum, and want to use this blog as a way to contribute to the community.
I plan to share my views on news related to After Effects and motion graphics and visual effects, plus share info about resources to learn more about AE. I'll also pass along info about cool sites our users create to showcase their work or share their knowledge.
I welcome feedback on things you like about this blog and suggestions on how to improve it.
