Quick thanks and a shout out to Orland Nutt and Ben Luce for their great presentations at the last meeting. Powering through some technical difficulties with the presentation laptop being at a different aspect ratio from the screen that was being projected, Ben’s pixel art technique was well received by all. “That’s how everyone is getting that retro 8bit look!” (or in Ben’s case, 16 bit – “Super Nintendo!”) was a phrase heard many times after the meeting. It made for an explosive demo, if the “oohs” and “aaahs” were any indication every time Ben said, “Boom!”
And thanks to Orland for rolling with the punches when we couldn’t read his hard drive, and doing the presentation entirely from Vimeo clips. He has some rare before/after footage from Bear of Heaven that hopefully will see the light of day somehow – we’re working on it! In any case, unforgettable imagery from Orland and a huge thanks for taking the time out.
The Ebay Lounge was a great venue with the only flaw being we couldn’t figure out how to turn down the automated lights to help better view the projector. A small glitch in an otherwise fantastic setup and the Ebay office may very well become the default for future meetings.
Next up – a big night of SideFX Houdini is being planned for April. Will keep you informed… watch this space!
VFX/PDX, AEPDX and 3DPDX’s continuing mission to bring you the latest and greatest has you reaching for your calendar again! This one courtesy of the good folks at Adobe, pairing with AEPDX. We’re excited to say the godfathers of After Effects, along with AE power user Harry Frank, will be showing off AE’s newest bag of tricks. Not the least of which will include the breaking C4D integration news that everyone is talking about. Stay up on current events and get a demo straight from the horses mouth — see what the top brass has to say about the new features. Further proof that Portland is no longer a blip on the radar.
Yes, CINEWARE is the buzzword to know and will be one of the hot topics of discussion. The power of Cinema 4d inside After Effects! Plus, unique breakdowns of the new features of AE from the original creators, engineers, and evangelists. Breakaway Q&A sessions after the presentation will provide attendees the opportunity to sit down with either the creators of Adobe After Effects, C4D, or Red Giant Software to ask them more specific questions about new software and features. Software raffle includes Creative Cloud yearly memberships, C4D Broadcast R14, and various Red Giant Software products.
