Some of Adobe’s professional video and compositing software was updated today, and one of the coolest new features is Character Animator, which tracks your own movements through a webcam, and maps them onto any custom made character you want, with very little effort.
Tom Scott's back, this time giving us a lesson about the history of green screen, and how you did it when all you had to work with was film or video.
The world's best Dad-who-is-also-pretty-good-with-Adobe-AfterEffects is back with a brand new batch of cutscenes to turn his lucky kid into the most adorable action hero this side of baby Groot.
Even though I know that this video was made by the visual effects experts of Black Sheep Films and isn't real, I can't help but feel queasy when I watch it. The rotoscoping is just so well done. I gasp as I see the cyclist cross the road, I churn when the pedestrian decides to run and can't breathe when I see the rest…
When you have a childish mind, amazing After Effects skills, and too much spare time, you end up making videos like this one: An insane nerf battle with realistic special effects, actors overacting, and ketchup. Gallons of ketchup.

After the opening teaser scene in this summer's Star Trek: Into Darkness, the film bursts into a batshit outer space title credit sequence, which sets the blood-boiling tone for the rest of the adventure. Here's a behind-the-scenes look at how those rad 3D graphics were made.
With obvious nods at 2001, Sunshine, and countless other space-set stunners, it was made with "no money, just a little time and a lot of passion," according to creators BC2010. I dunno, there seems to be a lotta tech-wizardry involved...
What's wrong with that video from last night? Things seems a bit skewed, distorted, and wiggly-jiggly. No, I'm not focused on that redhead in the tiny pink shirt, I'm talking about a fixable issue with CMOS-based video cameras.
The movement to turn all of our furniture into a fluffy application dock continues with this handmade Adobe Creative Suite collection.
I've spent more than a month working with Adobe Creative Suite 4 Master Collection. I'm impressed. It pushes the envelope again with new tools and enhancements that will save a lot of time.
