  1. was the spiderman logo animation very complex, how long would it take to create it from scratch you think?

    • This animation took about three hours for an experienced After Effects user (Chris Bobotis at mettle). I think that the average After Effects user could get it done easily in a day.

  2. Is there a timeline for ATI support on Mac?

    • ATI and Apple say they are working on this, but they never give a definitive timeline. Maybe it will appear in the next Mountain Lion OS update. You’re better off to get an NVIDIA card in the meantime.

  3. Been waiting for the Mac version for ShapeShifter.
