While working in After Effects, I moved the location of some files, and while they were unlinked I got this result: I love it. It’s a shame I can’t render it like this…

Noupe: 50 After Effects Tutorials

Hm. I was never much of a tutorial person (I rather just go and recklessly do whatever I want to do), but some of these will probably provide me with the kind of AE training I’ll need soon.

That’s a screenshot of After Effects 1.1, released in 1993 by the Company of Science and Art (bought almost immediately by Aldus, which would merge with Adobe a couple of years later). Even though the current, ninth version, obviously looks quite different, the way some things are instantly recognizable is uncanny (or it’s just me, who’ve used AE since version five). AE Portal News has the After Effects 1.1 demo reel, which is an interesting flashback into early 90s motion graphics (people did like Futura Condensed!).
