A couple of weeks ago, I participated in the After Effects World Conference. This was three days of seminars and interactive sessions with nearly 200 users of After Effects, instructors, and the team that makes After Effects—including one day here at the Adobe offices in Seattle.
I would like to thank Michelle Gallina of Adobe and the whole team at Future Media Concepts (including Jack Reilly, Ben Kozuch, Eran Stern, and Rich Harrington) for making this happen. We got a lot out of talking with everyone who attended, taking requests, listening to feedback about what we can improve in After Effects, and just hanging out and getting to know everyone.
If you’re interested in participating in a future After Effects World Conference, contact the folks at Future Media Concepts and let them know. We’re interested in doing something like this again, and we’ll be working with the FMC folks to figure out where, when, and how.
To see what the After Effects World Conference was like, check out these reviews and photos:
- Bill Dawson: “Thoughts on the After Effects World Conference”
- Issara Willenskomer: “Adobe After Effects World Conference – Takeaways for UX Designers”
- Adam Everett-Miller: “After Effect World Conference Review”
- Matt Law: summary on Mograph.net
- photo gallery on After Effects Facebook page
- photo of a few luminaries at Adobe Seattle and more from the same day
One of the things that I presented about was how we take in feedback and use it to build the best application that we can. Please, do submit detailed feature requests, bug reports, and crash reports (with your email address) so that we have the information necessary to improve After Effects to suit your needs.
I’ll be posting some tidbits over the next few days about things that I learned at the conference, so be sure to subscribe to this blog.
