  1. The final result of my course on compositing an app into live footage to create a promo.

    The mobile app market is saturated. If you can show clients or investors how the app works—before any time or money has been invested into a lengthy development cycle—it can help speed up approval and funding.

    Here, Andy Needham shows how to take the app mockup created in the companion course, After Effects: Creating a Mobile App Interface, and composite it into live-action footage of a smartphone. The final product is an animated promo video that helps visualize how the app will be used on a real device. Andy also covers storyboarding, tracking, keying, color correction, and a few audio tips. By the end of the course, you'll have more experience with the screen replacement workflow in After Effects and have a web-ready deliverable ready to share with the world.

    Learning Objectives:
    Planning with a storyboard
    Filming the phone
    Importing the live-action footage in After Effects
    Retiming the animation
    Tracking the shot in mocha AE
    Keying the screen with Keylight
    Adding an animated logo
    Rendering the shot
    Color correcting the composite

  4. This is a fix for CV-ArtSmart Paste not working when you install via CV-Toolbox.

    Problem: A file that handles the clipboard needs its permissions modifying.

    Here is the solution for OS X. It might be a similar method on Windows but I don't have a machine to test.

    Thanks goes to Rick Barrett for providing the information over at the Cineversity Forum.

    Note: I think this may also fix CV-ArtSmart Copy if you were also having problems with that.

  5. In this QuickTip I show you how to toggle the Sub-Division Surface generator (hypernurbs) in C4D, but you can use the technique to toggle between any parent generator!

    It's a very useful shortcut to know especially when you're modelling.
