Final Critique  March 8th, 2010

Just wanted to update everyone on the final class meeting time. As posted on the finals schedule, it will meet at the regular day, Tuesday March 16th, but at 8 p.m. (2000) rather than 6 p.m.  in HOV 008. I’ll be there at 6 just incase there are any last minute questions or if you would like to discuss anything about the class. Thanks-


H.264 pointers  January 13th, 2010

If your .mov file is too big, try creating an H.264 file. To do that in After Effects:

  • Add composition to render queue
  • Output Module > Format: H.264

This should reduce the size of your file significantly.  Best of luck. I’m looking forward to seeing your pieces on Thursday!
