The WTF?

The Update that shouldn’t even exist

The interesting thing with After Effects lately is that the more grandiose the promises of “we will fix this and that, improve performance and add new features” are, the more messed up each release actually seems to be. No, kid’n, even calling the interface changes controversial or the issues on Macs and the troubles with high-DPI […]

Buy – Sell – Put – Hold
