I use Final Cut mostly because it’s quick on the slices and capturing footage (kona AJA ). Avid Adrenaline has it’s moments from time to time.

Ultimately, I’m in love with autodesk smoke, hands down the greatest I’ve worked with….next to flame of course, but that’s just me.

Sounds like you’re using some pretty high end stuff Nemo. I’m go out on a limb and suggest that most Videohivers don’t get their paws on Smoke / Flame / Adrenaline all that often.

Sad thing is that I think Autodesk missed a trick a few years back by not turning Smoke / Flame into a semi-affordable desktop application and trying to go mass market with it. They’d probably have cleaned up in the compositing market.

Maybe it’s my imagination, but I don’t think post houses are using Flame anything like as much as they used to. Is Flame going the same way as Hal / Henry etc?

-f.

@ Felt_tips; I’ve been lucky being exposed and had opportunities to learn from other flame artist (I guess those interning nights have paid off somewhat).

True, a lot of houses are switching to FCP and AE for their needs but then again, a lot of those houses are working on projects that have quick turn-a-rounds and have freelance artists that are in abundance of knowing AE and FCP .

The houses that do possess the flame/smoke I’ve seen are the ones that concentrate heavy on the composite work and visual effects. It falls in line with the Boujou tracking system that’s pricey compared to mocha or syntheyes.

I think sometime in the future that they’ll have to come down on the price especially if AE is excelling the way they are with the new tools and collabs with other developers in CS5 .

Lol, Hal….oh man that takes me back, even when I ways using an old school PVR for my animation sequences with Premiere. They should have a museum for old systems like the Hals and Henry’s, Stratus etc.

Check out the “Computers Arts projects” mag issue 132 when you get a chance, It has timelines “decade of design” trends in the industry, amazing, we’ve come a long way.

Premiere Pro for me.

Except I use Cyberlink Power Director a lot. It’s a horrible/buggy $60-100 video editor but it has a really great Motion Slideshow designer.

Normally I use one “style” and then go through and do some fast tweaking (like motion starting on a person or object or image and then zooming out to the full image – or the reverse). In the 2nd video below you can see how easy it is to control the motion path and zoom/rotation. You can also apply a transition or random list of transitions to a large number of photos on the timeline – at the same time.

I can’t remember what it was, but I saw a plugin that was much better a long time ago, but it was $500.

My other favorite “slideshow” (AE) is with this method, except I love using Form instead of Particular: http://library.creativecow.net/articles/birnholz_rob/red_giant_3d_montage.php
