how about adding the word “Epic”... to the list… I see it as a useless superlative… whereas agree with above…4k, loop, are informative and should be allowed in titles..
testing the Surface Pro 2 out, I have a week to decide if I will keep it.. So far so good. I am rather impressed by it. I loaded a latest client job, a relatively large project file at 70mb. My desktop, ( i7-3770k cpu, 16gb ram, 64 bit CS6) takes 8:44 to render full uncompressed AVI. The surface took, 14:34. The playback of the AVI is very smooth. I loaded up one of my Element 3d projects and although not a thorough test, all looks good in the ram preview. (One Mac pro user reported no Ambient Occlusion with the Intel 4000 but on the Surface its all there) The screen although small is very crisp and colors are vibrant. I need my reading glasses to read the interface, which isn’t the case for my desktop 27 inch monitor, but to be expected…comes with age. So as for a travel machine that can take care of client fixes etc..this seems to suit my needs perfectly…I really like the pen stylus, ...will help keep the screen cleaner & might try out some traditional animation with it….So with a balance of portability & power.. Looks like I will keep it.
*to note: I have the 256g, 8g ram Model..don’t go with anything less.
yes, it makes sense Creattive.. I don’t think Element will work it… although the Surface is close to a laptop… I may go with a laptop that has a gpu that supports Element. The pen tablet function looks like an interesting way to work however…(if smooth enough)
wow, thanks Creattive & Andrenavarre & Doru for your translation & valuable input!! Great info! I am visiting a friend in Europe for a month, and just need something to respond to purchasers and my clients..etc.. So it seems like this may suffice… Will look into the element 3D issue & Asus options.
I will be traveling soon & need to get something portable.. Was wondering if the latest Surface Pro 2 would be capable of on the road edits etc.. The one appealing thing is the wacom pen to create some traditional anim. I also wonder if it would handle Element 3D as some of my projects are E3D… If anyone has had any experience with it, I would be interested in your opinion…thanks.I see a review here..in German.. (don’t understand it) but around the 16;00 mark..he is displaying AE….interesting workflow with the pen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvtjFdSL9U0
very well done…don’t get discouraged….. sometimes all it takes is a slight adjustment to bring a project alive.. Like the others have said…I think it requires some luminance effects, flares etc. to bring out some definitions. ... Rejections are frustrating for sure!, (having had a few) though usually they will motivate us to create a better project… However, I agree that it is completely unacceptable by Envato reviewers to reject without at least some suggestions (one or two lines) as to why or how it could be improved…& not a form response..The Authors deserve better… The current method of blank dismissal only creates resentment and certainly doesn’t foster loyalty.
If this helps, I’m uploading my previews at 960×540, mp4 rendered uncompressed from After Effects and compressed with h.264 in Premiere after that. It ends up under 20mb per minute.
You can see my work here and take a look at previews.
thanks Marko..they look good….always feel mine look crappy once compressed on vHIve.. but then I am comparing them to my higher quality uploads..
there are a couple posts on this however it is still a little unclear to me as to the best method to achieving highest quality preview. From what I understand…no matter what we upload,, vHive still re-compresses to around 700k.. So the best method would be to upload a high quality 10million/bps mp4? ... I noticed some are using the smaller 640×360 format..better image quality with a trade off on size? Anyone have some methods to achieving top quality? I render full uncompressed..then compress using Sony Vegas.
