In the LIVE! sessions I started to do some time ago I used to put a live feed from my camera onto the screen along with my desktop. I always thought that doing so would also increase the “friendly” factor of my tutorials, but I never got around to do it. Until now.

After publishing [intlink id="1188" type="post"]Introduction to Pixel Bender[/intlink] tutorial where I showed you guys how to build a simple cropping plugin I got a lot of emails and comments asking specifically how to create certain types of parameters in Pixel Bender code that show up in After Effects as Angle Control, Checkbox and other UI elements, so I’ve decided to create this small list for you to help you out with this.

We’ve all been through this. Creating channel separation effect by hand is a pain. You have to duplicate the layers and use channel mixer and blend modes to get what you want. Not anymore. Now with new After Effects CS4 we can script a simple Pixel Bender to do just that.

I always knew that theres a huge potential in ExtendScrupt Toolkit from Adobe to extend build-in functionality of my favorite Adobe apps, but I never actually had a need to develop anything for myself… until few days back.

I’ve been helping out John Dickinson from Motionworks with his new site that is going to be up soon. Doing that I took advantage of the legacy my-hacks.php file in WordPress architecture. It’s great that you can still use this file. It allows doing cool things with your post and WordPress in general without going into writing a real plugin.

Good news everyone! I finally got to finish cross-platform CustomEffect installer. No more headakes when installing my expression based presets. Make sure to check it out. It requires Adobe AIR runtimes, so make sure you get them before installing my application.

Finally the things are starting to take the right turn. I’m doing a [intlink id="140" type="post"]training DVD[/intlink], [intlink id="150" type="post"]developing a few small apps[/intlink] for you guys, and recently I got in touch with a brilliant software developer and we already build our first AE plugin.

Since I’m working on Making It Look Great 5 DVD I don’t want to miss any opportunity to make things look their best. I’ve watched previeus editions of this series and most of them where recorded on Mac using some build-in software. The most cute feature was a visual representation of keys that were being pressed during the recording. I wanted that for myself.
