    Making a Matte Painting with Elements in Motion

    May 1, 2012, 8:18 am
    In the days of early motion picture making the art of "matte painting" was a process of actually painting with oils on a plate glass that was then shot in position in front of a scene on location or in the studio where the film would be exposed by the combined images through the camera's lens, creating an illusion that the actors int...

      Preparing for Cinema 4D Lite v2.0

      September 30, 2014, 7:10 pm
      Adobe pre-announced many of the new features for the next version of After Effects CC 2014 at the just-passed IBC show.

      Shatter glass in After Effects

      September 30, 2014, 7:10 pm
      The easiest way to simulate shattered or broken glass in After Effects is with Shatter, an older 8-bit per channel plug-in that ships with After Effects. Originally developed by Brian Maffitt under the Atomic Power banner, Shatter is mostly used for shattering glass, brick walls, puzzles, and so forth, but also used to generate 3D text or shape blocks. But there are other options available if Shatter doesn't work for your needs.

      Intel’s New Processor Speeds Up Video Rendering

      September 30, 2014, 12:32 pm
      Intel's new consumer processor is not on the same league as their Xeon chips, those used in workstations, but the Haswell-E is the fastest processor many working videographers may need, at a much lower price than the Xeon costs. Recent tests show results that may surprise everybody. The entry level processor costs close to $400.
