We had a crash course with Malcom Finney today on Adobe After Effects. I’ve had experiences with the program in the past but I don’t use it that often even while I feel that it’s one of the programs I should be proficient in. He taught us basic animation, making use of the grids, keying out colours in a video for compositing, masking, alpha paints, camera tracking and compositing a 3D asset from Cinema 4D. All of this information will useful when the time comes for me to composite my 3D character into a live action plate, I’m not sure how I would fully go about it at this point but I have a better idea of the options I have now.

About a week ago I took part in Pop Dundee‘s Christmas Market sale outside of the Caird Hall. As usual Vicki and Ashling were very well efficient, helpful and professional organisers. I had a long and very cold day out in the market but it was fruitful and a lot of fun!
