Chauncy Gardener Syndrome

I like to watch. Motion graphics that is. So I was pysched to discover XPLSV.tv  this morning. I'd describe the site as a social networking (had to work that buzz word into my blog) site for motionographers. You can watch, review, rate, and connect with others. Plus (at least for the moment) it is ad-free.

Back to watching...

And we'll try to keep it ad-free forever! :) Very glad to hear that the site arrived to Adobe ears!!! Hope next time we try to get Adobe to sponsor the contest we get better results ;)

glad to see adobe showing some interest to the hardcore afx users on the xplsv.tv site.

Almost all the work on the site is exceptional, and I frequently use it for reference and to check out what peeps are doing with after effects and other adobe software.

I recently had some of my work podcasted from them, and due to that my motion graphics profile has expanded and recently met a random dude on the train watching my client work on his ipod, which was a good bit ov guerilla advertsising for me.

Im wondering if you can tell me whether adobe have any plans to make afx midi controllable? it would be handy although processor intensive, also do you know if after effects on amac can use freeframe plugins or core video yet, I have been an A/V performer for 10 years and use afx for creating my bespoke sequences and loops, and have recently discovered freeframe/core video with my midivideo software [arkaos] and Im impressed with the quickness and instant gratification they offer. Ive tried pete wardens freeframe tutorials, and Im wondering if adobe have any plans to officially integrate this system.

many thanks for ur time

Thanks for sharing this info. I wasn't aware of Freeframe or Peter Wardens plug-ins for it. It looks very intriguing. It also led me to explore some of the links to VJ apps using this. Very intriguing. I can see how AE would fit in nicely here (especially if we became more real time).

We've thought about integrating midi into AE over the years, but other features always at the time seemed higher priority. I think it may be time to revisit this again.

I saw something very interesting on YouTube and it's on a site www.broken-xmas.com

Very good.
