How not to lose your current presets when you upgrade

By Chris and Trish Meyer | September 30, 2014

Adobe pre-announced many of the new features for the next version of After Effects CC 2014 at the just-passed IBC show. One of the big additions will be upgrading Cineware and Cinema 4D Lite - the 3D modeling and animation program that comes bundled with After Effects CC - to version 2.0, based on Maxon’s Cinema 4D R16 (Cinema 4D Lite is based on R14).

This is mostly great news, as this means a ton of new features for us After Effects CC users (see the series of movies Maxon posted on their Cineversity site for R15 and R16). However, some of these updates have obsoleted older features, which in turn means some of the currently provided factory presets for C4D Lite may be lost. Read on to learn how to proactively set these aside so you can still access them when the next update indeed happens.

Preparing for Cinema 4D Lite v2.0

By Rich Young | September 30, 2014

The easiest way to simulate shattered or broken glass in After Effects is with Shatter, an older 8-bit per channel plug-in that ships with After Effects. Originally developed by Brian Maffitt under the Atomic Power banner, Shatter is mostly used for shattering glass, brick walls, puzzles, and so forth, but also used to generate 3D text or shape blocks. But there are other options available if Shatter doesn't work for your needs.

By Jeff Foster | September 27, 2014

Beyond traditional smaller quadcopter designs on the market, the usual choice for an upgrade is a hex or octocopter... but the form factor of 6 motors and props on the three-armed "Y" formation of the 3D Robotics RTF Y6 airframe provides not only good stability in windy conditions, but a hotrod of a UAV capable of over 55mph and some truly impressive video footage. But hold on - this sucker can really FLY!

Product Review: Lightpanels Astra 1x1 LED Light

Preparing for Cinema 4D Lite v2.0

Power, expandability, accessories, and a lower price.

By Helmut Kobler | September 22, 2014

The Litepanels Astra is the next-generation 1x1 LED light from the company that invented the first generation. After Litepanels founded the genre, a lot of companies followed its lead with cheaper — and, more lately, competent clones — but the $1350 Astra raises the bar again with dual daylight/tungsten LEDs , high-powered output, DMX expandability and a nice ecosystem of light-shaping accessories. It’s easily the best 1x1 panel I’ve come across.
