Expressions to make a spring with multiple layers of Illustrator or shapelayers.

Hello! I'm breaking my head trying to make a spring with multiple shape layers or illustrators layers. The top layer of the spring must act like a controller and moving it down the rest of layer must

Hmmm, just checked, best I could do is save as CC12; as AE will only let you save down a single version.

Well if anyone was going to respond...too late; went with the Mac. Did not want to have any surprises crop up with Windows that would have soured my mood.
Interesting thread on the San forum about the new Mac Pro

I came across this interesting thread on the San forum about the new Mac Pro, as Bob Zelin and company hold forth. Worth a look. http: forums.creativecow.net readpost 197 859608 Herb Sevush Zebra Prod

I think trying to setup a network like situation over TB is a dead end. The switch would be very expensive compared to GigE (and probably even 10gbit) switches and not make sense as has been suggested
my first comments on the new Mac Pro
by Bob Zelin 7 years ago
1) you can make your existing Mac Pro's into a nice server. 2) no 10gig ports. I am surprised, but not that surprised. 3) I guess ATTO, Magma, and Sonnet better get busy making Thunderbolt 2 expansion
Re: my first comments on the new Mac Pro
by Mark Beazley 7 years ago
Hmmm, that is a good point since PCEe 2.0 only gets 2GB sec over 4 lanes. Perhaps the TB and the GPUs are tied directly to the CPU lanes. That would allow the GigE and the UBS3 to be tied to the chips

Quick question: has anyone after-marketed the latest MacBookPro to 16 gigs of RAM?

Re: Quick question: has anyone after-marketed the latest MacBookPro to 16 gigs of RAM?

The problem with the premise that every core gets or should get 2GB is that isn't the way computers or software addresses memory. The computer does not automatically split the memory into equal parts

Ki Pro as ISO Record?

Is it crazy to install 5 Ki Pro's into a live switch situation as ISO Recorders Client will then dump off ISO's to tape during the week and edit in FCP. This is a weekly recording situation. XD Cam 70

Not sure why you would want to dump back to tape though; it seems to me that it would be faster to copy the files to an external or internal RAID system connected to the host editing machine. We plan

You are watching interlaced video on a non-interlaced display, so of course you are going to see interlacing on your computer monitor. Monitor your video through your capture card or camera on a video
