The Awful

CC 2015 – Forum Gold

A slightly frustrated user just posted this on the Adobe forums: Hi, I hate the live preview! Is there a way to use the old method, where you wait a bit and then play it without any lags, if you don’t have a powerful machine? Another user also requested the return of the “alternate preview” […]

CC 2015 – The Sum of all Fears

It’s now one week after the 2015 release of Creative Cloud and calling it a complete disaster would be doing anyone favors. For the time being I have decided to pass and probably won’t bother with the new versions until much, much later. In addition to my already mentioned issues, some additional ones have made the rounds. […]

Q.F.A.

Messy Heisenberg

How thoroughly After Effects is messed up these days unfortunately came to light once more over the weekend when I was suggesting my Heisenberg’s Delight project as a solution to someone looking for a way to highlight words in large texts. Yepp, sadly it’s broken in current CC versions of After Effects because the expression loop […]

Wavin’ and (Mis-)Behavin’

It’s one of those weeks where working the Adobe forums is literally so dull and frustrating, I can barely hold on to myself. Almost miraculous that I’m not barking at everyone. The far below par quality of Adobe‘s support certainly doesn’t make things easier on the forums, too. *argh* Speaking of frustrations, I realize more and […]

Dear WordPress,

Could you please stop messing with your interface? I really hate how you are moving menus around and I have to go looking for my daily used options in a new place every other week. It’s bad enough that you are trying to dump your shitty sky-blue nightmare of a new post editor as an […]
