  • After Effects CC 2015.1 Update
    Tweaked previews, improved workspaces, new effects, and more
    by Chris and Trish Meyer  |  December 1, 2015

    After Effects CC 2015.1 - also known as v13.6 - is being rolled out today to Creative Cloud subscribers. The initial CC 2015 release marked a significant under-the-hood change to its architecture plus a major update to previewing, all of which promised improved usability. However, that initial release was fraught with bugs, performance slowdowns, and unexpected consequences of the new previewing scheme. The After Effects team has been working flat out to cure these ills, and the 13.6 update takes another major stride forward toward making the program behave as expected. A few nice new features were added, too. Here are some of the major changes brought by this update:

  • Great photography with just one light
    One Shot, the book/eBook from Tilo Gockel available on Rocky Nook, does what the title promises: guides readers through a complete workshop on flash photography. With a single flash!

  • 4 things that will take Adobe Premiere Pro to the next level
    Premiere currently has a very fast and very deep feature-set but addressing these issues will take Premiere into the future
    by Scott Simmons  |  December 1, 2015

    At this point in time we are well into the life cycle of the “new” Adobe Premiere Pro. This “new” version is long past the early years of an odd interface, the period where Premiere left the Mac, the rebirth as the CS (Creative Suite), the conversion to CC (Creative Cloud) and the move to a subscription. I’m not sure of Premiere’s actual market penetration but if you keep your eye on the post-production industry these days you know it has made great in-roads in the last few years. But there’s still a few big things that need attention before Premiere Pro can penetrate some of those markets that are still a stronghold for Avid Media Composer.

    In this lesson, Kevin P McAuliffe talks about Bin Views inside of Avid Media Composer.  Bin Views are how you are going to see the most important information about your clips, depending on the editing situation you are currently working in, so that the relevant information is displayed to you, and you can keep your edit moving as smoothly as possible.

  • Lumu Power: One light meter to rule them all?
    A Kickstarter for an iPhone-powered incident, flash, and color meter
    by Adam Wilt  |  November 30, 2015

    Lumulabs, the folks behind the Lumu plug-in incident light meter for iOS and Android (reviewed here) have just launched a Kickstarter project for Lumu Power: a combination incident light / color temperature / flash meter. Lumu Power will plug into the Lightning connector on any modern iPhone / iPad / iPod touch running iOS 8 or later. It's estimated to cost US$300 and ship in mid-2016, assuming it gets funded and things go according to plan. [Update: they reached their funding target in less than 3 hours.]

  • 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.
