Tutorial: Use ReelSmart Motion Blur in After Effects

This is one of my first video tutorials. I am gonna re-upload them to vimeo to make them accessible for mobile and tablet devices and maybe some of you can take something away from that. It was originally uploaded at John Dickinson site motionworks.com.au and with over 15,000 views quite popular I guess.

There are a lot of questions, answers and comments on the blog post already. Have a look there if something is not clear. Otherwise ask here, at motionworks or on vimeo.

Tutorial: Project Organisation & File Structure

In this tutorial I am talking about the project structure I am using on my project. It's based on the structure from my old work at Fluid Post. I think it's pretty handy and helps me to keep organised.

I hope you can take something away from this tutorial. I am not saying this setup is perfect and there is always room for improvement. Let me know what you think.

Inspiration: Phil Borst

We did a bit of research for a bigger project that's coming up in the next couple of weeks and we came across some really talented guys with amazing work but one name kept poping up: Phil Borst (vimeo)

I really enjoy his refreshing style and the detailed and subtle animations. In times of MoDynamics and plug ins that do the job for us it seems that we keep forgetting how much better it looks if you do some good old manual animations. I am guilty of using bounce and wobble expressions to put some extra life into my animations. It's probably time to ditch them once in a while and spend some time doing it the "old" way.

Phil was nice enough to upload his project file for mork. So you can have a look how much work he put into this.
