Google recently introduced +1, a button that gives you a +1 rating from the user who clicks it, making your article/page/post appear higher among search results.
Adding this to your site/blogger makes it very easy for people to share your stuff and if your viewers think something is relevant to what they were searching for, +1 helps others easily find it.

In the previous post we learnt how to join points with a line using the Beam effect and a very basic expression. In this tutorial, we're going to look at how to enable this to work with parented Null objects, since things appeared to get weird when we did that.

While working on the Mission Briefing video, I had to make the flexible line that joins the house to the text. This was because later the line had to move but still stay connected to the house. Here's a quick tip on joining objects with a line using a bunch of Nulls and some sneakiness XD

In my ongoing experiments, here's a new video. It's a mission brief for "Gamma Squad" inspired by the Call of Duty 4 load screens/brief clips.
The map was gotten from Google Earth. The 'mugshots' were from a random shoot we had a while ago which had some that fit the part. Everything else was built in AE. No 3rd party plugins involved :-P
Oh and by the by, if you remember my 10 things post, I mentioned how when exporting the FLV format rocks! Well, I had an MOV (photo-JPEG) version at 81 MB and the FLV version became 7 MB! Which means 10x quicker upload time at equal quality XD
While doing this I got an idea to have "Motion GFX Challenges" with other AE users out there... thinking about it... anyone down for it? Drop a comment below, or like and comment on the Facebook page. Then we'll get to the awesomeness!
