You can put me on the list – like @conigs I've only been here for a hot second but I'm more than happy to help get some more exposure and conversation going 😁
Octane, Redshift, Arnold.
Houdini and X-Particles.
Unreal and Unity.
There are so_many_things to learn in motion design.
How do YOU decide what to pick up next? Curiosity, capability – or fear of getting left behind?
Asking as I'm watching a Redshift video, downloading Blender, and picking up an Unreal course at the same time 😁
with some new people popping up, I'd like to share some tools if I may that people—especially those that work with video/rendering—may find useful
Ramma —detects bad frames in image sequences
Faera — adds visual markers for motion tracking vfx work
Mvrk — composition guides based on dynamic symmetry
Tape — offline-first project management for creatives
you can find these and some other stuff at https://www.aeriform.io/software
Anything interesting come out of NAB so far?
Seems like everyone is launching cloud collaboration tools to compete with Frame.io.
I saw Andrew Kramer came out of hiding to talk at the Adobe booth but haven't heard what he talked about or showed.
I thought AUTOGRAPH was supposed to have a booth but haven't seen anything from them either.
I’ll go first:
• Client briefs are going to be populated with a TON of AI-generated images that LOOK finished but aren’t necessarily animatable/executable.
• On the converse, it’s going to be interesting as a CD having the ability to create quick multiples of a concept and generate a lot of material for photobashing for pitches.
I can’t help but laugh and remember the long-forgotten Brainstorm button in After Effects back in the day - will it make a comeback?
OpenAI DALL-E 2: will AI rewrite the art game?
As soon as agencies and the slightly more curious/sophisticated clients realize they can type in words and adjust auto-generated images based on their random musings, it SEEMS like working in motion design is going to undergo some big changes.
And if DALL-E3 can generate animations?!?
