After Effects Workshop with Dan Short at Independents Hall July 30th

Adobe After Effect Product BoxFrom our friends at:
Independents Hall

Next Wednesday, July 30th Dan Short will be sharing his extensive knowledge of Adobe After Effects! This return of our workshop series from the spring is very exciting, and will be the first of lots of new events we’re getting fired up for this fall.

The event will run from 6:30-9pm at Independents Hall. Please RSVP on Upcoming so we can have a headcount!

From Dan:
This tutorial is meant to introduce users who are already familiar with Adobe applications to After Effects, although I am sure that there will be elements that would be valuable to anyone interested in the program. I will be showing how to animate a logo over a background using 3D space, cameras, keyframing, with pixel and vector graphics. I know it sounds like a mouthful, but I’ll be breaking it down and doing my best to answer any questions you might have. If it sounds over complicated, don’t panic. I am a nerd at heart, and it is in our nature to make things seem more complicated than they actually are.

This “Logo” type of demonstration is a common introduction into After Effects because it incorporates so many of the programs abilities. If this session is received well, I will build more tutorials based on the specific needs and wants of the Indy Hall community. I look forward to seeing you there.

If anyone would like to get a familiarity with the program before the tutorial, or would like to work along with me, I will be supplying my files to anyone interested. You can also download a demo version of the program from the Adobe site.

Server Migration Underway 07/09/08

UPDATE: 08/12/08:
The migration was a success and now email functionality is also back in action.

FIrst off if you are seeing this entry with this sentence, you are hitting the new server - woot! :)

Hi all, just a quick note that we currently undergoing a migration of the entire site and its database's, mail servers, etc. to a new DV host at mediatemple.net where this site is hosted. The existing content, databases, etc. are already migrated and in place, so its just a matter of a few more configurations for other domains that point to this site, and then we are going to throw the switch on the DNS. One remaining issue will be email, as we rely on another server to handle the emails for this domain (contact form emails, and member signup verifications, etc) it will take us a little more time to get mail working as that machine will take a few more days to be completely migrated. As soon as everything is complete we will update our status, as well as put a note on the old server and new server so folks can validate they are getting the latest DNS entries. We did drop our TTL value on our DNS recently to prepare for the migration, so it should be fairly transparent.

Part of the server migration will allow us to host a more robust forum, private mailing list and some other nice additions we have planned - stay tuned!
