    Either way it shouldn't matter where you choose to do the bulk of work, but personally, I would would retime my clip in Premiere and then send it to AE. AE handles effects better. Applying heavy...

    There are several things you can do to get this to work. Preferably, I would suggest speeding the clip up first—either in AE or in another piece of software. I usually find that if you speed things...

    The learning curve will of course vary depending on the individual, but if I had to choose, I would say Cinema 4D is easier to learn. Most say C4D is a tad more "user friendly". The lay-out is a...

    Right. Unfortunately, Element does render cast shadows, however, I'm sure you can find some workarounds to make your shot work. As you said, you could always key an iPhone and use a wire in order to...

    In terms of the overall lighting and perspective, everything looks well executed. The key you pulled looks good (even the shot where her hair detail is most apparent was done nicely). Not sure if you...

    I don't deal with xml often so I wouldn't be an expert in this area. However, you shouldn't have any issues opening your cs5 files with cs6. The only catch is that a dialog box will pop up, informing...

    I think you hit the nail on the nose; at the end of the day it comes down to personal preference. However, given that this is an interview I would assume that the intention of the this piece is for...

    I completely agree the composition of the shot could have been thought out a bit more. It's pretty evident that the subject is competing with the background but I still feel that simply desaturating...

    Nicely done Kinoks. This is a good start for a final grade.

    I'm not sure what format this was originally shot in, however, I can see how the dramatic variation in values could be harder to...

    Kinoks, the shot is looks great, definitely a substantial improvement. The only thing I see that might have been a bit overdone is the spot exposure over the subject's face (seems a tad too bright)....

    In terms of compositing, I think what you need to do is make sure you light things a little more realistically. For example, in the 3rd shot, instead of lighting the ship in its entirety it should be...

    You can use the simple choker effect to achieve what your looking to do. Depending on your animation, this might or might not be ideal... However, it would help if you posted a screenshot to better...

    Based on the video you have linked there, I think something like this is just what your looking for. The downside is you might want to purchase a plugin or two but I have no idea if they are...

    Well your set up doesn't seem too complicated, I'm assuming it's a typical dialogue scene. In that case, I would suggest adding some sunlight instead of making it cloudy, given the fact that the sun...

    As stated, a simple sky replacement would be the solution. However, in all honesty, it would probably be easier to replicate cloudy footage instead of something sunny. It's far more convient for a...

    It's definitely done with a high speed camera. The effect is essentially super slow motion at it's finest. Of course the CGI and compositing pulls it all together but enough chatter, here's a good...
