CS4 for Videohive projects, CC or CS6 for client work.

Hey guys, what happened to the “Ramp” effect?

I noticed that when I open my CS4 project in CC, I get a missing effect error for “Ramp”. When I look at the affected layers, it looks like AE CC renamed the “Ramp” effect to “Gradient Ramp”. I have expressions on the initial Ramp effect linked to other Ramp properties, which all got disabled because of the name change.

I guess we need to create separate CC versions of projects that use the Ramp effect (with expressions) because of this.

Did I miss the memo? Are there other CS4 effects that got phased out or renamed in future versions?

Cheers, Andre

Hey bobach, I thought I’d give you my 2 cents since I have some experience working in AE on a portable tablet pc… I don’t have the surface and so I can’t comment on that one specifically, but a few years ago I bought the Asus EP121 and I still use it regularly in my work flow. Here’s my opinion on the experience:
  • Drawing, typing and taking notes on these things: very enjoyable!
  • I never rely on my tablet pc as my main workstation. I use it more to develop ideas, take notes, sketch up drafts, start a project from the living room, watching movies and browsing the internet.
  • It’s great for starting projects, but the more advanced the project gets the more tedious it becomes.
  • Anything I start on the tablet gets finished on my 27inch OSX workstation. But I also use the tablet to test my files when they are finished to make sure they also work in Windows.
  • Template customizations are very doable on the tablet since it’s mostly just data input
  • I use the wacom tablet to do simple frame by frame animations in Flash and TV Paint: enjoyable!
  • Windows tablet+Xbox = media centre for TV :)
Because of the screen real estate, you’ll be working at about 25% for the preview area. And get ready to start dragging the scroll bars in the timeline and project panel. Sometimes I plug in a wireless mouse that I can use on my jeans or on the sofa. The major downside is the battery life when you’re working on anything serious. You may want to look into external battery packs if you want to use it on the road.

If you end up getting it, I’d recommend you get at least a 128GB SSD and 8GB ram… Windows 8 takes around 13GB of space and the Adobe Master Collection is around 25GB. What’s left gets used up very fast!

Take a look around the TabletPC Review forum before you buy, it has helped me many times. Good luck!

I have no idea how difficult it is to plan, but I like it when AJ items include multiple versions of a track in different lengths… 30s, 1m, 2m etc.. This makes it very convenient for making templates.

Hey guys, I’m looking for someone to make me a one-page site that displays small video thumbnails on a 3 or 4 column grid. I’ll be looking to have these features if possible:

  • videos should play on a constant loop
  • text title under each video that can be selected by viewer for copy/paste
  • would be nice if the videos only load if they are seen on screen
  • would be nice if the grid layout was responsive
  • place for a banner at the top

Anyone interested? Contact me via my profile page. Thanks! Andre

It could be interesting to have an “item request” area for customers to vote on ideas… But I think you are well positioned Seb. I have the opposite problem: many ideas but not enough time and skill to make it happen :( Anyways, you can always share your concepts in the fr fb group and get some feedback there.

EDIT: just saw there is an item request tab in the forum haha oops!
