Multimedia Graphics & Animation – Fall 2019


Adobe software update warning!

As I mentioned last week, Adobe has officially started rolling out their 2020 software update, which includes an all new version of After Effects. Although there’s no harm in updating, it will mean any projects you create outside of class will not be editable in the media lab. NCC will not update Adobe software automatically, and probably won’t get around to it until next Summer. If you want fewer headaches, don’t update After Effects until after you’ve submitted your final project in December.

If you have any questions about this – especially if you ignored my warning and updated anyway and you’re now freaking out and having an existential crisis and possibly considering sheep herding for a living instead of media production – don’t hesitate to give me a shout.

    I am trying to open an ae file created in your class 11/7 on a NCC computer in room 108 and it says it cannot be opened on this version. Are these versions incompatible? This is a Ncc apple computer during an open lab session. Room 135 is not available.
    I have a project to submit but I wanted to improve it. I do not have adobe at home, if i enroll in it now will I get a version that is incompatible with the Ncc media lab version?
    If I start a new project in this classroom will it be editable in room 135?

      Bob, I just sent you an email regarding this. If you don’t get it, please email or call/text me at your convenience.
