ALL EQUIPMENT DUE

As the semester winds down, we here in the lab are in overdrive. We’re cataloging the lock up, making sure everything is in and this year we’re working in the edit bays to get ready for new computers. Which brings us to the reason I am here.

ALL LAB EQUIPMENT IS DUE BY THIS THURSDAY, APRIL 28th

also if you have anything on the edit bay computers you want to keep please make sure to have it removed by the end of the semester.

Thanks! ūüėĀ

PS Make sure you say congrats to Nick when you see him as he is graduating this year!

FREE Lightsaber Plug-In

Star Wars is really cool. Well, I think so at least. Disney and Lucusfilm have been busy within the last year with the release of Episode VII and the trailer for Rogue One.

Like really, that trailer was just released today. It’s pretty awesome. Let’s get the hype-train started!

But that’s not what this blog post is about. I’m a little late to posting it here, but the nice people at Video Copilot have released a free plug-in that makes pretty awesome looking lightsabers in After Effects. It is appropriately named, “Saber.”

Here’s a quick snapshot of my film #ShamelessPlug¬†

I’m currently using this plug-in to help create my upcoming Star Wars fan film. For being free, I have to say it’s pretty awesome. You can use it for more than just lightsabers though – you can have it set to follow text or even mask paths. Super exciting!

My words can’t do it justice. If you have AE on either PC or Mac, I definitely say you should download it. Luckily for you DMaC students, it is installed in Rogue One….I mean Edit One ;). Come give it a try!
