SFMOGRAPH is a motion graphics user group I co-founded which meets at Adobe's San Francisco office every few months. This video is from our first meeting in March 2008. Two of the original CoSA After Effects team members, David Simons and Dan Wilk, take us on a trip down memory lane. Along with Dave and Dan, current Adobe After Effects Engineering Manager Chris Prosser rounds out the presentation.
Unfortunately the audio is not too hot, especially at the beginning thanks to our camera sitting really close to the HVAC unit. But it gets better, and this presentation is well-worth watching for anyone who loves AE as much as I do.
This training series covers concepts, not software, and are as relevant today as when they were created 10+ years ago. Sadly they have been neglected and no longer available so I have taken it upon myself to "digitally remaster" them (ie. compress the hell out of them).
In this episode, Ron Brinkman covers Compositing Concepts with an emphasis on Image Processing.
