  1. Wow man, that looks pretty damn amazing. I haven't used AE in a while (switched to Mirage a few months ago), but that looks like a very cool plugin to have.

  2. Pretty cool. As it happens, I actually know the guys who originally came up with this animation technique (Adobe has reimplemented it for AfterEffects). You can see a demo video and Java application here:

    The video is also on YouTube:

    It's great to see it actually being used in widely available software.

  4. No kidding. Just about all of Takeo's work is like that. Check out his early 3D modeller on YouTube:

    He came up with this eight years ago; I can't understand why similar functionality isn't in every 3D modeller today. The same is true of a lot of graphics research, unfortunately.
