  • Want to get the hand tool back in CS5?

    Want to get the hand tool back in CS5?

    September 13, 2010, 7:36 pm




    We recently upgraded to cs5, and for everything good that it does, it also has a few weird quirks. The most notable is that using the space bar to temporarily select the move tool (the one that looks like a hand) does not work. This is a known issue, but it still sucks. The only workaround is equally quirky: shut down your web browsers. I can’t say why it happens, but hopefully that one trick will keep you from throwing your machine against a wall. I was really close!

      Today, Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Andrew Whitehurst posted a very fun project on his Twitter account – a dice inspired by http://pocketartdirector.com that would be a quick way to give some of the hilariously common feedback in VFX dailies.

      Shooting 'Speed’s' opening titles almost destroy

      June 6, 2019, 4:32 am
      Has there ever been any opening titles quite like those in Speed? For the uninitiated, the three-minute long sequence follows the path of an elevator shaft from above the 40th floor right down to the basement, immediately segueing into the film’s action. All the while, composer Mark Mancina’s score is introduced, while the titles themselves wipe on and off the elevator beams.

      Great Effects for Good Omens

      Wouldn’t you know it? You’re a demon living on Earth for the past 6000 years, and you’ve finally persuaded your angelic counterpart to help you stop the end of the world, and now you can’t remember where you left the 11 year old Antichrist.

      My Thoughts on Apples New MacPro

      June 5, 2019, 12:21 pm
      We’ve all been waiting a long time for the new Mac Pro to be announced, and this week Apple finally delivered one. And while it certainly impressed many of us (myself included), there was also the inevitable pushback from those who felt the new machine was just too rich for their blood.
