Ugly bits of this and that

Really digging the new macmini. BUT, I can't install photoshop CS2 on it. Agony

Preview shows this pencil art as being completely washed out. I adjusted it inside preview and it looks  too dark on the blog.
Scott Sackett is taking the picture. This is how the Better Than Fiction podcsats are done. Sitting around talking with an ipad recording sound in the middle of the table.
This will be the crew, plus Count Gregore / John Ferguson- that will be shooting my mini horror story tomorrow. We're all raring to go.
Our little shoot went fine. I should have something to show you on youtube in the next day or two.

What is it like to live in your brain Ellis? You must be constantly bombarded by new visual ideas all the time. I think that's how Moebius was too.

Have you tried Manga Studio? It might load on your Mac mini and is not very expensive.

Tom Moon said...

You will have to give me a tour of Manga Studio next time we are up there Rick. I've grown used to doing things in Photoshop Elements, but I'm curious what it has to offer. I think I'll do a little online research as well. You really like it eh?

I have installed Manga Rick. Manga 5. So I should be good if I just have to do something digital on the mac mini. I still have what will be my workhorse. The imac and the cintiq that run photoshop.
I'll try and install my cs3 after effects after I do the horror short shoot tomorrow. I really hope that installs. I'd like to do a lot of video editing on the new computer.

Thanks for comparing me to Moebius Tom.

Hey Ellis, I use Downcast to download podcasts and it's only showing me up to episode 60. I'm guessing that there's been more shows posted since then and for some reason I can't see them. Do you know what's up with that?
Break a leg on your shoot tomorrow!

MrGoodson2 said...

Rick, here's a place to get them where they download.

Looks like they are up to 67. We recorded 2 last night. 68 and 69.

Kinda faked a time passage where we talked about the video shoot as a great success.

Those will be up in a week.

I am on quite a bit in episode 69, arguing that Road Warrior is better than Fury Road. Not to say Fury Road isn't great. Just that Road Warrior still tops it.

Ha, you did it. You made a mini-movie. Looking forward to seeing it.

Dude!! So exciting!! We are chanting "Toi, toi, toi!!" fer you (opera speak for "good luck"). Can't wait to hear the updates!!

MrGoodson2 said...

I'll do a rough cut tonight so I have some momentum going into tomorrow. The guys want me to do it quick so they can link to it on the podcast.

Tom, I'd be happy to give you a tour of Manga Studio, but it's not really necessary... it does just about everything that PS does and although it doesn't name all of the tools with the same titles, it doesn't take long to figure out which MS tools are the equivalent of PS. It has layers and everything. There are 2 HUGE advantages that MS has over PS. One is the price and the other is that the lines are so much cleaner and sharper.
