Wait, so Shake is the new standard?
I’ve learned after effects from the ground up I really like the program enough to want to stick with it.
Obviously what you can do in shake you can do in after effects (most stuff at least, in some way). But if most companies use one product it might be best to at least know a little bit of stuff about it.
I also use max, which can do the same as maya so it’s pretty much the same thing.
I guess if you’re working on a collaborate shot where many people do small stuff and share the project file and resources you’d have to all use shake, or ae. But If I’m doing 1 shot by myself, motion graphics or whatever it wouldn’t really matter to them which app I use right?
The most important thing is to learn the foundations though, like knowing how to draw by hand and then using photshop/painter to improve it. Say I know how to composite a shot then I just have to use shake/after effects to make it happen. It’s easier to learn how an application works instead of learning the foundations of animations or whatever from the ground up.
Which visual effects companies are you talking about, or just any one? Or does it have to be one located in sweden cause I don’t think there are that many, haven’t looked into it though.
