Quicktime 7.4.1 posted, AE no longer “broken”

Yep, straight from the Product Manager of After Effects, it’s safe to render QuickTime movies again vardenafil otc. Or rather, it’s at least safer than it was in 7.4, so if you’ve been stuck trying to downgrade to 7.3, there’s an official way out.

As the last productive days of 2007 dwindle down, Michael Coleman just pulled the trigger on an announcement that there will be no version 8.0.2 of After Effects for another month or so.

Flat Earth VFX

I’m not a regular NPR listener – just happened to tune in for a few minutes this morning while shaving, just in time for this morning’s seven and a half minute NPR story about the Rhythm & Hues studio in Mumbai that recently completed work on The Golden Compass and Alvin and the Chipmunks.

To paraphrase Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore, this writer’s strike will end someday. Amid more and more speculation as to the irreperable damage being done to the Hollywood studio system is a major ray of hope for thousands of aspiring filmmakers – not just those outside the system currently, but even those striking writers – particularly the […]
