Hey Mr. Neely! I was one of your students back in the day. Small world!
You are perceptive at noticing my attempt at being perceptive.
Did you wanna you have a dialogue about my comment or are we just gonna trade hyperboles? Seems a pity to waste our time with the latter.
Aaaaaand.... (crickets). Thank you NFS for at least making an earnest effort over the last few years to include discussions around difficult subjects in cinema and the media. I wish more people we’re willing to join the conversation. Perhaps one day that will change, until then know that your efforts at sparking a dialogue around these matters are appreciated. Even if it is just a repost from Vulture. For what it’s worth in these polarizing times... Thank you for giving a damn.
It’s a trap. The 40% off only applies to your first year. By the time you renew not only will you have to pay full price ($52.99) but Adobe very well might have raised their prices by then. They recently raised the price of their standalone price for Photoshop from $9.99/mo. to $19.99/mo. This flash sale should be a clear sign that Adobe isn’t adding new users at the rate they once were when Creative Cloud subscriptions was first introduced. The idea was make users reliant on the entire suite of products a la Microsoft Office. They have legitimate competition now. If you need CC for then by all means have at it. Just remember, after year one you’ll be paying full price (whatever that price is by then). I repeat, IT’S A TRAP.
Resolve or more specifically Fusion is more suited for VFX and compositing work than it is for motion graphics or animation.
I'm not saying you CAN'T create motion graphics or animations in Fusion more so that After Effects and HitFilm (to a lesser extent) are better suited for the types of motion graphics and animation styles I mentioned previously.
