Anyone here tried a School of Motion course and can say if it is worth the time and effort?
I took the After Effects Kickstart course. Was able to learn I few things that I didn’t in the past. It’s a lengthy course but worth taking.

I’ve started the Cinema 4d Basecamp as well and that one has been pretty fun so far.TVTFA
Tempted to try and convince work to pay for one for me.
What were the assignments like? I find good homework is what makes or breaks a paid course.
why would you want to become a motion designer?

months of work only to be seen for 20 seconds and forgotten 2 minutes later

what do you guys think about adobe subscription model

how do you manage to pay those high fees, do you even?
70 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
why is pirating ps all of the sudden regarded as some confusing black magic thing nowadays and why are people so on the fence about paying rather than pirating
they want amateurs to steal it so it becomes industry standard, that's why it's so fuckin easy to steal
kids these days
many have no intuition in terms of piracy/bittorrent/forums while being afraid to get virus, which is more or less a valid concern. occasionally even in moderated trackers pozzed shit slips through (in less downloaded and checked torrents).
Wanna know how I can tell you’re a Jew?
Here’s a trick I discovered when I didn’t know I was paying for the PDF Adobe program. This is how you can get the whole subscription for a cheaper price.

I needed to make something a PDF so I got the trail not knowing it would charge me if I didn’t cancel it. After paying the 15$ or whatever for a couple months I saw the charge and went to their support to cancel it. When I messaged them they asked why I wanted to cancel and I said I didn’t need the program anymore, they reply with “is there anyway we can change you mind?” so I thought maybe I can take advantage of this. I got them to give me the full subscription for a discounted price, I believe it’s like $30 USD for everything (not including stock). I just told them it was the only way I’d keep my subscription. I’ve been doing this for 3 years, every year they try to raise it back to the normal price then I just say I’m gonna pull out unless they change it back and they do every single time.

I know pirating is easier/cheaper but this way you can keep up with the updates without paying full price. Hope this helps one of you faggots out.
The bleeding-edge versions are all getting AI integrated now and everything is buggy as hell. Anybody using the Adobe suite professionally is running a few versions behind and/or keeps a stable version installed on their machine.

I haven't gotten much video or photo editing work in the last year. Mostly I've been writing, yet I continued to pay for and use the Adobe suite because it's fun and easy and I was used to paying for it. I could have switched to MS Office for a year but I'm used to Google docs now. It's all about what you are used to. Globally subscription models make sense because people set the payment to auto and we forget it is even there, just sits on my credit card every month, helping improve my credit score.

Need help. PS Noob.
I have 10 screenshots from a 4chan thread that I want to merge into a single image. How do I do that in PS without losing the clarity of the image text?
Just make sure not to scale/resize the screenshots in any way. All you'll really need to use is the move tool. Possibly layer masks too - if you want to crop out areas of particular screenshots.
Open the images as Photoshop layers. Edit>auto-align layers select "panorama"

...of one pic onto another...
just use a clipping mark and maybe opacity. Or use a blend mode. Or just recreact the noise using the noise option
>Or just recreact the noise using the noise option
but what if the pattern of the noise is something very unique with somewhat repeating geometries unlike the random white noise?
Ok actually, having come back to this after some time, I think its a cloud render. Filter > render ? clouds, then processed from there. ie using a blend mode
** filter > render > cloud

Hey there Anons. I usually redesign my website once a year, and this year I'm thinking to do a grey scale Geocities style site with early 2000s forum style buttons (think Gamestop forums, etc) that are slight highlighted like the icons next to the 'New' text in this link:

Combined with the fact that I want the menu to be just a simple menu on the left side of the screen, should I opt to do all the buttons as just images in GIMP accordingly? Where could I learn how to do old school Geocities style buttons as well? Also, I'm thinking the grey scale of the site would be something similar to this site as well: https://antialias.se/ Thanks.
Use a web archive like wayback machine, look through site assets and learn from them. :)
Thanks Anon, good idea. Will do.
Use gifcities, search for some gifts, then click on them, it will bring you to an archived neocities website. I usually type home or next page and that gives me good results

hi /gods/

i was a bit curious to how you have built your portfolio websites.. i had a website years ago and was happy with using Indexhibit, but I see it is no longer active. What are some good CMS thats easy and slick to use for portfolio websites?
I’d show you my portfolio but I’d immediately get doxxed. I used Squarespace and just made it look nice lol
indexhibit is gone?

Should graphic designers be proficient at drawing and painting?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Before it was a must but nowadays because work gets diversified we have a graphic designer and an illustrator, and there is no real need to excell at both, but it will give you versatility.

>anytime your hands make something, you're instantly replaceable
It's funny because the opposite is true.
no, but being proficient in draftmanship? yes.

How does one make "art" like this?
More specifically the lighting and bloom?
I was thinking Illustrator but some of these look more 3D

Well dang that's fantastic, and saved as a reference for my webcomic, thanks.

Thanks anon!

I don't know the correct art-school way to achieve what this illustrator does so I don't really want to downplay how cool it does look, but I know that in photoshop you can mess with gradients, light layers and glow effects super easily, which is how you get really cool ghostly mountains and stuff.
