Compositing or special effects forum?

Hey Chris just wondering if we can have a forum dedicated to special effects, compositing or motion graphics? People might need help with programs such as after effects, motion, flame, inferno or shake?

That would be tops if you can add that in!

Jemero: at the moment there is no such forum. There is sometimes a topic on
After Effects in the Adobe forums for example.

Usually Chris starts a forum when there is sufficient traffic to warrant one
(ie, enough topics on the subject) so we don't have empty forums.

So the best way to get it is to start discussing those subjects! The best place
to do that in is probably the Open DV Discussion forum.

Thanks for the feedback!

p.s. Chris will respond to this topic as well with the "final" answer. I just
wanted to give you a heads up on how this usually works here.

Hopefully we can get enough feed back to create a demand for it, honestly this is the creme dela creme of video sites if we can get that, its basically covering almost everything on what video is all about.

ok let ask a question

Does anybody know what plugin I can get for AE or motion for that old skool 8mm look even when the film burns out. I would love to know what its called and where I can get it.

Jemore: http://www.adobe.com/products/plugin...ects/main.html

The one I always hear about is DigiEffects' CineLook. However, there are multiple plugins on that page for (old) film emulation.

Rob you are the man!

I heard magic bullet can do it too.
But I'll have a look at this one pronto!

I bet you there are hundreds more questions like these, lets make them appropriate and ask Chris for a forum.

I'd love to have a effects forum! That'd be awesome.

FYI: I'm new, but if I had had a problem with effects I wouldn't have known that I could post it on this site, I just wouldn't have been sure it would really be on topic...

It's a great idea. I've had questions to ask about after effects that I never knew where to ask.

I also vote for a new effects forum.

After Effects being the most popular, it seems, but all the other flavs on a sub-forum would be great as well.

I mean, I tried looking at some of the After Effects tutorial books, and I just go blank. Most of it is written for people who already know how to use it, it seems.

excellent suggestion....i could sure use a forum like this...adobe manuals are the worst. supplemental training is essential, not optional....

The problem I have with this subject, is that 99.9% of the people are using FCP or AE for compositing. I am in the .01% that don't have either, and end up using Photoshop, or whatever free program I can find.

Now, if you would be willing to use the proposed forum to find and use low budget alternatives in addition to how to use them, I'm for it!
