Q&A Facebook Edition – Question 5 (why start this channel?)

Why did I start this youtube channel. Well that’s a trip down memory lane, and I challenge you to find any evidence of the story reference in the video. I may have erased my past to prevent time travellers from getting me.

Either way enjoy the secret comic book origins of this channel.

Q&A Facebook Edition – Question 4 (Advice on workflow)

http://www.youtube.com/v/Ep5fXoGkGeE

How do you speed up your work flow? I don’t even know your workflow. Maybe you’re at max speed already. Likely you’re not because you’re asking about it and have gripes. In general though the best thing to do is write it down, plan it out, and look for logical gaps and loops. After that it’s all about what you prefer to do with what programs and how you prefer to manage your time and resources. I don’t know what you’re doing and there isn’t one workflow for all things so the best answer here is just more questions.

Q&A Facebook Edition – Question 3 (About Colour [color] Correction and Grading)

Let’s talk about colour correction and colour grading and how you might be wrong about how you use those words. And then we’ll talk about why that’s important. And then I’ll not apologize for insulting your intelligence.

Just remember colour correcting corrects colour. Colour grading changes it to look pretty. Keep your processes strait dawg! Also cs6 no longer has the 3 way color correction. If you ask me about it in the comments I’m going to say read the thing in the video and then made a rude noise. You won’t hear the rude noise but know that I made it.

Q&A Facebook Edition – Question 2 (Why is Jake so Sexy?)

Click to tweet? — http://clicktotweet.com/Y204w

Jake asks “WHY AM I SO SEXY”. And I did say I would answer the first five questions so I guess here is the answers? I actually have no idea why anyone is the way they are. I’m certainly no sexual expert or anything over here. But that’s for the question and I’m sure we all hope the next one is about After Effects.

Q&A Facebook Edition – Question 1 (make more professional colours in After Effects?)

This question comes from Se├ín Mc Ternan. And he asks “What are the little thing’s you consider important to give an overall ‘Professional’ look and feel to your graphics. Meaning what do you add in terms of blending options to make your colors look more alive rather than a flat?”

Well that’s a lot of things and the answer will likely disappoint you. It’s a lot about choosing good colours. Knowing about colours. And applying colour theory. As well you get an earful about what I REALLY think about your colour choices.
