I wanted to play with some python scripts which had dependency with those two and I couldn’t use the provided installer (didn’t work and don’t know why). So I had to compile it for myself, which is a pain in the ass… I actually couldn’t go trough with it.
But I found this shell script that does download, compile, install everything for you ! That saved my ass . So in case you are in the same dilem (or in case I don’t remember about it in a few month :p ) here is the link for it : http://stronginference.com/scipy-superpack/
As you may know, Davinci Resolve light is out for mac. It is a free version of Davinci Resolve 8 with a few limitation.
From the website :
DaVinci Resolve Lite – Free
The free DaVinci Resolve Lite includes the same high quality processing as the full DaVinci Resolve, however it limits projects to SD and HD resolutions, two color correction nodes, a single processing GPU and a single RED rocket card. Stereoscopic 3D features, 2K, noise reduction, power mastering, remote grading and sharing projects with an external database server are features only offered in the full DaVinci Resolve and are not included in this free DaVinci Resolve Lite edition.

Only issue though the interface is only optimized to work with a resolution of 1920×1080. So if you are playing with it on you MacBook Pro, you might not be able to see the whole thing. So here is a small workaround you can do

When you are finish to play with Resolve jus type the same thing in terminal but set the value to 1.0 instead of 0.80.
NB: you can set any value you want instead of 0.80

If you are like me working a laptop, and don’t have any numpad, this application is for you. There is a lot of numpad apps for iphone, which basically connect to your laptop via wifi. But if you are a Blender user, this one is even better !
Beside being a numpad it is also a toolbar with shortcuts for Blender features !
Check it out, it is free and it works on Mac & PC !
Kiril Ivanov is doing a crazy job with After Effects ! He did create some really nice animated character using some really nice rig and stuff.
And he decide to use ft-Toolbar in his workflow to be able to animate and set his rig faster. And he also had the idea of multi-toolbar which now is fully supported in version 1.27. Checkout his video :
Create an instance of an effect with one click™. Behind the scenes the script makes a copy of the effect and links it with expressions in a way that allows the instance to be anywhere including a different comp.
