New application announcements are (almost) always a good thing; this one is no exception. Flash output support will be an immense help to graphics designers, I'm sure. I'm startled by the large difference between the regular price ($995) and the upgrade price ($199), although I must admit that I don't know if this sort of thing is typical for applications in this category. What I'm wondering, though, is if it will be of any use to a game developer like me...

I just wish they'd port 3ds Max to OS X :(

Typo alert: it's combustion

I've never used the program before, so I'm a little indifferent, but I know it has a large base. So props to those who use it.

Despite the press release, this was 'announced' back in august. It was demo'd here in LA in september...


As far as the huge user base.... most people in animation/post production still use AE by far...
