  • After Effects Hidden Gems Weekly: Roving Keyframes
    Smooth out the speed of a complex animation in After Effects with as few as two keyframes.
    by Chris and Trish Meyer  |  November 24, 2015

    Normally, a Position keyframe in After Effects defines a time, and the position value at that time. This can get unwieldy when you create a complex motion path - such as following a map or maze, or hand-tracing a path with Motion Sketch - and then want to finesse the timing of that path later, as you often have to tweak the timings of a lot of keyframes to create a smooth end result.

    As it turns out, there’s a little-known function inside After Effects called Roving Keyframes where the timings of keyframes are set free and allowed to automatically slide earlier or later as needed to create a smooth speed without changing the Position path itself.

  • Will the new HP ZBook Studio be the next legal Hackintosh?
    With its Thunderbolt 3 and matte 1080p or 4K UHD display, the ZBook Studio is a ripe candidate to receive Apple's blessing.
    by Allan Tépper  |  November 20, 2015

    Not all Mac users know (or remember) that there was a time in Apple’s past when the legendary company co-branded iPods with HP, and before that when Apple blessed several third-party personal computers to run the Mac Operating System legally. I owned one of those legal Hackintosh computers back then, and it was better than the available hardware from Apple at that time. The new HP ZBook Studio I mentioned in a recent article also beats any hardware currently available from Apple, a company whose principle income now comes from the sales of iPhones and iPads, not from Mac computer sales. This situation obviously affects the company’s financial focus. In fact, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook stated in an interview earlier this month about the new iPad Pro tablet: “Why would you buy a PC anymore?”. Well Tim, to use the late Steve Jobs’ terminology: Because some of us still need a truck. (“Truck” was Jobs’ analogy for a personal computer, as opposed to a tablet, which he called a “car”.) Ahead, we’ll look at this situation a little closer.
