Q. What was the newest innovation at the show?
A. I found that as far as software goes the newest innovation is an AE plug-in called Paint and Stick. It’s created by the AE Scripts guys and will be  released soon. It’s really crazy that you can paint on your 3D scene in real-time directly inside of After Effects.

As far as equipment goes, I was amazed by the new drone section. There was every type of drone you could think of. There were small ones that held go pros and big ones that held giant equipment. They even had a giant net flying zone to demo the drones in action.


Q. What was the highlight of NAB for you?

A. My highlight was being able to demo at the Rampant Design booth.
I was able to show how Zaxwerks ProAnimator and  rampant effects work extremely well together.
We recorded the demo so it’ll be up online early next week.






Q. What did you see at the show that gave you insight into future trends?
A. Of course, I saw a lot of drones so I expect that’s not going away anytime soon. I also saw a huge increase in the number  of hand-held cameras. This is going to make it a lot easier for individual artists to shoot their own footage, and make their  videos look as professional as the big studios.
