Experimental Animation based on sound with After Effects via AETuts+ (Audio Reactant Time Remapping)

My tutorial for AETuts+ is finally out !!
It covers Time Remapping, Waveform to keyframe conversion, expression, … I got really inspired by watching all those reels from motion designer or filmmaker with music most of the time from Hecq. I was wondering how they did their editing and cuts, so I came up with this idea. I don’t know if it’s the way they did it, but this is my approach.

Hope you like it !!!

Blender Quick Tips : How to create masks in the compositing editor

Since there is no mask in the “Compositing Editor” of Blender yet, I found a simple tricks which could work pretty well especially in case of color grading.

You’ll see nothing really fancy here since the mask can only be square (or pretty close to a square shape though). But if you check out Colorista for instance, the two allowed shapes are ellipse and rectangle.

Maya to Blender tutorials

I just found those 2 videos on vimeo (hopefully there will be some more soon) talking and helping Autodesk Maya Artist willing to use Blender.
I like the idea behind this kind of videos, and since Blender 2.5 will be more customizable with multi-windows, Hot-keys, … it will make it easier to switch from one software to another.

Those videos, especially the first one is for Blender beginners
