News, Information & Workflows from Users & the Adobe Ae Team

Ae & Miguel Muelle

I first met 2 young software guys back in 1989 or 1990, Dave Herbstman and Dave Simons in Boston, when they came up from Rhode Island to the studio where I was working. They were doing some R&D for a program they were working on that would be like the expensive compositing systems we were using at the time, but it would run on a Mac, and it would be relatively inexpensive. I got a t-shirt with the CoSA logo, and on the back it said “There’s a fifty percent chance my name is Dave”.

By 1993 Adobe Aftereffects was showing the fruits of its early promise, I bought a Quadra 950, AE 1.1, Illustrator, and Photoshop, and went freelance. Not a working day has gone by when I have not touched After Effects. I have never had an idea which I was unable to figure out how to execute using AE.
