Steve Kilisky's Dynamic Media Blog

Blog Envy

When I entered the Blogosphere, I remember several folks giving me advice that the key to a successful blog was to post regularly. My naive goal was to post every day. That was before I realized that: a) I really don't have something of interest to say every day in a blog, b) that keeping up while traveling is harder than I thought it would be, and c) the blogging software we have to use here at Adobe is well to be polite not particularly user friendly.

I recently discovered 2 users out there creating blogs that I hoped mine would be more like. As the saying sorta goes, those who can do, those who can't link to others who can:

General Specialist is a relatively new blog by Jonas Hummelstrand a VFX Supervisor in Sweden who uses AE.

Motion Graphics and Such is another new blog by Alan Shisko a long time AE user.

Both are now on my reading list.

Wow, I'm honored to be on your reading list!

When I started the blog a few weeks ago, it was to share the nuggets from the infostream that I wade through daily. Now that I actually seem to have a couple of readers, there's an incentive to keep posting the stuff I find interesting!

Actually, I'm working on a post about an AE bug which appeared in one of the final builds of the beta program, that never got sorted out in the shipping version. It's the annoying problem of OpenGL not reading previewed frames from the cache and instead re-rendering every frame when scrubbing.

I'd love to see the Adobe blogs to be an information channel to us AE-nuts about upcoming fixes and patches. This confirmed bug means that the greatly improved OpenGL support of AE7 is rendered(!) useless on all workstations I use.
