    This site has been one of the most resourceful on the net. Its tutorials have been really informative and it has helped me achieve the kind of satisfaction that I expect from my work. I would like to frequent this site on a permanent basis and would recommend it to anyone out there who is sincerely trying to put in the best amount of effort in their work. Its a site for serious people who want to make the most out of their work. Truly technical!

    I have been struggling for 40 hours against a deadline trying to get a title effect of dispersion just right. I have spent most of that time doing on line tutorials to produce things that unfortunately looked cheesy or downright bad. I stumbled across Maltaanons Hotline because I used some of his tutorials to solve an earlier problem I had and figured what the heck. 12 minutes my friends. Solved in 12 minutes. I just wasted 10x what the hotline cost me doing things that didn’t work. Not only did I get a live video feed of Maltaannon’s After Effects window as he was explaining the solution to me, I also got a screen capture of the entire thing on video so have that in my files and to sell for millions of dollars to all internet geeks trying to solve the same problem (just kidding Maltaannon). If you have an AE problem and can’t solve it, I recommend this dude, he gets a 10 on a scale of 1-5.

    I have been following Maltaannon’s tutorials for awhile, and today I had the pleasure of using his hotline on a project where a camera does a mysterious “wobble” on a simple lateral sideways-tracking shot. Not only did he personally show me using my own project file that my Null’s x-position keyframe’s Spatial Interpolation was set to Bezier (instead of linear), but he also gave some pretty useful tips for fluid camera movement. Very satisfied with his professionalism and will be coming back again for sure.
    Let us all pray (and support him) so that he can continue sharing with us his valuable knowledge!

    Great stuff ! I am somewhat new to AFX CS3 but I am learning fast because of all your tutorials ! Just wondering if the shape extruder would assist me in creating a basic 3D tube that grows from a flat circle to a long tube or is there something else in CS3 that would do it? I am looking to ramp effect the color as it grows. For some reason I am stuck on this and it seems so basic to all the stuff you have going on. Any assistance would save me from losing my mind – keep up the amazing tuts !

    What can i say about Maltannon that hasn’t been said already? Im just picking up After effects, and i’ve learned everything i know from Jerzy. I recently gave him a call about some commericals that i spent at least 40 hours on but stil didnt look great. In half an hour flat Jerzy step by step walked me through the process of creating an outstanding background and accompanying text. One thing lead to another, and in two three hours i learned more about after effects than i did in my entire life. His help easily saved me at least a day in fusterating troubleshooting. Forget those training DVD’s. If you want the most value for your dollar, this is the way to go. He shows you everything he is doing on his computer. It ws incredibly easy to send files back and forth, and at the end he sent me all of the project files and recording of the session. Nothing out there compares to this. Thanks for the Help!!!!

    Hy my frend!
    I have a problem with the nativ HD image (M2T) I can’t import in After Effects and I see in your last tutorial “Uses Of The Circle” you use this kind of movie. You can help me to find how it’s possible to import? Thanks for the help!

    Kinda off topic I suppose. I was wondering if anyone knows how to change the chime at the end of the render in CS3? I haven’t seen any documentation on CS3. I’m on a PC and I have read a few things about changing it in 7 but nothing in CS3.
    Any knowledge on the subject would greatly be appreciated.

    Hi, I like your tutorials. I wanted to ask something about creating fire. I’ve learned creating fire from your fire creating tutorial. But I wanted to know how to create the ring of fire. I tried making a mask on the photo and tried moving it to let time difference detect it. It did detect but for some reason even when I target this to layer exploder, it doesn’t work. Although the hand movement worked properly. Are you going to do more tutorials on creating fire. Or could you please mention how to create fire in the scene when there’s nothing moving or many other things are moving. I’ll be waiting for your next tutorial. Thanx

    I just got off a Skype call with this AE Guru, and let me tell you something. The way you can see his screen and hear him in real time, and talk to him while he is busy is incredible! He then send you the project file and video (screen capture) when done – tutorials on demand! GREAT!!!

    I will be calling again you can be sure of that!

    Thanks again.. love your tutorials and love the fact that you provide a service like calling for advice and tuition.

    Keep it up!

  32. Maltaannon

    19. Feb, 2009

    Yes. We are sure to open up this site. But we run into some problems. As usual. Doing stuff like that, especially for free is a bit problematic. But you can be sure that sooner or later it will be there.

    hi maltannon… i have a litle question foru you… How many times you dont visit you another site fineCG? i have see only 1 tutorial in 7 month or more… lol… it a joke site?

  38. HarryPix

    21. Sep, 2009

    stay tuned? i am tuned about 7 month but for nothing… i ha ve read the blog on fineCG, and more and more people have get theyr question but you don’t reply… it a not good this

    22. Sep, 2009

    I do not know exactly how intense HarryPux might have felt since written communication does not have intonation. But I towtally agree with her. When you see a great potential on a site and and you had a taste of what its like and you were not able to get enough, that can be sooooowww frustrating. GRRR!!! MEE TOO I WANT MORE!!! butt i believe i do not have a single right to demand since I am enjoying it for FREE in the first place!!!
