In this tutorial, Michael Hurwicz takes advantage of new support for the FBX file format in Mudbox 2010 to export geometry from Maya 2010 and import it into Mudbox 2010. A problem with painting in Mudbox is solved by scaling UVs down slightly in Maya before exporting the FBX file.

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

A Motion Graphics Template, referred to as a MOGRT, is an animated sequence that is self-contained and can be used in Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Rush and Adobe After Effects, combining graphics, text, audio and video files, as well as vector or still images (including logos), to create a still or animation that can then be customized by the MOGRT user. The result is a dynamic creative tool that provides design freedom and is consistent to its users across apps and devices. Reuse, share, and even sell them!

New York-based editor Phyllis Housen first fell in love with movies at a young age and had that love reinforced by a high school teacher who taught film history instead of English class.

She tells Kylee Peña about the connection between her skills as a drummer and storytelling, the evolution she's seen in the craft of editing, editing films shot in a language she doesn't speak, her use of Adobe Premiere Pro, and how she explains all the blood and violence in the films she edits to her parents.
