View Full Version : CafaFX?

This is basicly a question for the CafaFX people but any one is welcome to answer. I bought After Effects a few months ago and I'm slowly getting the hang of it. My question is this, after looking at the CafaFX Reel at their website I was wondering how much of it was done in AE? Or can be done in AE? Are you able to do CG with AE?

IF your talking about CafeFX having worked there for a few months They primarily use Fusion with a touch of shake and combustion didnt see afterfx around at all.

Yeah, CafeFX is mainly a Fusion place. But AE has probably been used on more feature films than all the other compositing packages put together, since it can do everything. Some sources...

AFX... I stopped using it in 1998.
Fusion, Nuke, Shake - there's no competition. Really.
For minor work, if AFX won't crash or freeze, why not.
I would only launch AFX to use some plug-in, since not all plug-ins are supported in Fusion (not %100 compatible).

I'm with you Hype. AE gets a bad rap around here a lot of the time, but its saved me from a few major headaches on a bunch of shots. Its not as simple as Nodes=Good, Layers=Bad folks. In a client-driven session its all I like to use for quick feedback. And only then will I farm out the roto, keying and tracking to Shake.
