Course: Oblivion

Okay, I admit I borrowed that from the Star Trek – Voyager episode of same name, but let’s talk Oblivion. A while ago I posted about the sleek UI stuff. Well, sleek in a movie sense – they are still overflowing with unnecessary noise and fluff and would make terrible interfaces if they needed to […]

You-I-Porn (UI Porn)

There was a time in my life when I had this odd desire that I wanted to get into mock UI graphics for film and TV and then I found other things to do. My interest in this stuff has never completely gone away, though over the years it has gotten more and more insane […]

I like to tease…

Now that I have a new system, it occured to me that I still hadn’t rendered that Tron style animation that just wouldn’t work back then in its full HD glory. So now here it is for you to enjoy: Since there’s Optical Flares in there, too, it is only fitting that I once more […]

Today you are a Geek!

Websites come and go, but often the people behind them remain the same. Just like good old me has been around forever, so has Lloyd Alvarez. Being quite active in the past on the now almost dead AEnhancers he started AEScripts at some point and that site has taken off considerably and evolved into one […]

Little Things

No sooner did I complain about the scaling issues in Element, then the next day I had the fix in my hand with the latest update. Well, fix may not be the proper term, as it required me to rebuild some of my projects for the tenth time, but at least an acceptable solution, if […]

Element (in)animée

In the ever popular discussion on everybody’s favorite new toy in town, Element 3D, it’s now time to take a closer look at its animation capabilities. It’s been almost 4 weeks since the release so everybody has had a chance to watch the tutorials and do his own experiments, so most of you should have […]

Element in Motion

I’ve been feeling slightly nauseous those last two days and my head has been mostly spinning with headache (which are either signs of yet another infection on the horizon or some other weird thing rummaging through my decaying body), so I haven’t really gotten anything done, but at least I’ve managed to upload some videos […]

Friday Defunct

It’s one of those Fridays…. We have a fun saying here “Deine Mudder hat das Internet gelöscht.” (“Your mother deleted the Internet.”) and mine did indeed that. Well, not exactly. Luckily for you and me she’s running offline, but she did manage to send her Excel toolbars into oblivion once again and then didn’t know […]

Can I get some Frost in here?

Even though it’s August, these are probably going to be the hottest days of the year this week and the weekend already was rather – shall we say sweaty. The humid air is really making it difficult to breathe for me and aside from that I constantly feel like I’m still wearing too much, even […]

“What’s new in this version? We have a 12 on the box.”

While that well be could be a quote from some leaked internal documents of some big software companies, that little sentence is actually from Tron – Legacy. It makes for a somewhat cheesy premise for some of the things in the film, but in a weird way, reality is probably more of a satire on […]
