Today Adobe revealed some features that are going to be included in the next version of After Effects and the other of their video applications. Fortunately, Adobe provided the mamoworld team this upcoming version of After Effects which they are also going to demo at NAB show. We where very busy the last days recording some sneak peek tutorials giving you an in depth look at the most important new features!
Last week I had an interesting Skype call with VFX Bro about his latest project "Get Buff! With After Effects". In this tutorial, he shows various techniques to turn yourself into a muscleman. My favorite one (yes it uses stabilized precomps from MochaImport+) starts around 6:26.
Beat Assistant v1.1 has one exciting new feature: As an alternative to layer markers, you can also create composition markers now.
We added this feature after Eran Stern pointed us to a brilliant work-flow: Use the beat markers of Beat Assistant right inside Premiere Pro! This is possible, since composition markers can be brought from After Effects to Premiere via cut and paste. Eran himself shows you the details of this work-flow in his tutorial about using Beat Assistant with Premiere.
Most examples on image stabilization show how to turn some horrible hand-held shot into something a bit less shaky. But is image stabilization only for people who do not know how to operate a tripod? Helmuth E. Günther definitely knows how to operate a tripod. He produces 'postcard films' which show beautiful landscapes and are projected on huge screens to entertain the audience during the breaks of various events.
