It’s Groundhog Day! Happy Birthday Gridiron

I could probably opine at some length about what a great movie Groundhog Day is. To think that most 1990’s high-concept comedies were hard to sit through once, and yet this one inspired a lecture series at a bay area Zen center. See it again! And again…
Meanwhile, there’s a one-day sale over at Gridiron software, giving you After Effects users Nucleo Pro for 20% off today.
I have a ton of respect for the people I’ve met from Gridiron Software, and Nucleo Pro is a phenomenon for productivity if you’re on a multi-core/multi-proc system. I have to admit I was skeptical, even during the early part of the development cycle when it was clear that they were digging around deep in the guts of After Effects to make this work; the phrase, “fools rush in where angels fear to tread” occurred to me as my system slowed to a crawl or the beta software blew up spectacularly. But they’re no fools, and they pulled off a few engineering feats that, indeed, the wise developers of After Effects itself had cautioned against even trying.
I’ve even heard that it solves stability issues when running AE7 under Rosetta on an Intel Mac (NP is, itself, a Universal install), although other counter-intuitive settings have emerged to solve this as well.
