Errf. Just got done with a huge project and sent that file off to those who sent me an email. If I missed anyone, just drop me an email and I will shoot it right off. I have it handy now.

Sorry about the delay, just a little under water lately....

Cheers

Hey folks,

Just an update. I am no longer giving out the project file since I found it being passed off by someone as their own. Not from this forum I am happy to say.

At any rate, I am happy to answer any specific questions and Maybe I will do a tutorial project to pass out later.

Thanks again for all the interest!

Mike

Sorry to hear about this, Mike, but I'm glad that it wasn't one of us that did it.

Thats really annoying when you are good enough to give out the project file and someone goes and ruins it all for the rest of us, I would have loved that file.

Look forward to your tutorial when you get a chance to do it Mike.

Well, so it goes. It will not stop me from trying to help out, I just have to be smarter about it. Tutuorials may be a better way anyhow as the old saying goes

Very true,

And on a further note to do with the project file "What do you expect from a cow.....only a kick" you do people a good turn and its threw back in your face.

I for one am going to buy AE and hope to get some help with the montage effect from you as well if its alright, just one question is the standard version alright or would the pro version be best?

Thanks
Paul

Yup, standard works fine. The only thing that will slow you down a little is the "exponential keyframe assistant" which only comes with the Pro version. It helps out with scaling and zooming naturally. You can achieve similar results by tweaking velocity graphs manually, it just takes time to get it right.

Make sure you get Chris and Trish Meyers first book (3rd edition) along with AE. Hands down the best starter book on AE out there.

Mike,
Just curious how long it took you to create those photo montages. Also, how did you syncronize the music with the effects? Did you do it in AE or your NLE? I'm very new to AE and just ordered the Meyers book.
BTW, very nice work!

Bob,

All done on AE. I would guess that one has about 40 hours in it but someone good and quick with AE could do it much faster. I just enjoy it.

Synching with the music (copyrighted by the way - I dare you to hijack this thread.....) is pretty straight forward. In AE if you open up the music track you can expose the waveform and just go from there. I think the Meyers book covers that. If it does not, I will send you an AE project file showing it.

Have fun and get ready to waste days and days.....

Mike
