Learn the best techniques to give characters cartoon-like movement in After Effects. In this tutorial, we’ll cover the AE puppet tool and everything you need to get started with character animation.Character animation can be intimidating – but with After Effects you can actually give your characters realistic movements quite easily. In the following tutorial I’ll walk you through the fundamentals of character animation and the puppet tool. I’ve included the After Effects project file below so you can try it alongside the tutorial on your own.Using Photoshop, I first created a 2D character that we’ll be animating in AE (I’m calling this character “Baldy”) . Grab the After Effects project file and Baldy’s corresponding Photoshop file here:[maxbutton id=”6″]By breaking your character into individual layers in Photoshop, you can apply the animation to each layer individually in After Effects. So, when importing the PSD into After Effects make sure the layers are retained:Apply the AE puppet tool, and then pins, to each layer of your character (the pins will be used to control the character movement). In the tutorial I show you how to tweak the pin positions to create unique movement for each layer.Once you’ve got the body movement animated over time, you can continuously loop it with a simple time remap expression.We’ll finish up by modifying the overall position of the character so that he appears to walk across the frame, and by adding a shadow to give the animation more depth.Using the puppet tool and simple keyframing techniques, this tutorial is perfect for anyone looking to dip their toes into the world of character animation in After Effects. It’s not nearly as intimidating as you might be making it out to be!Got questions about this After Effects tutorial or character animation?Share in the comments below!

If you want to compel people to take action, find out what already compels them. What is already motivating them to act is the sweet spot for getting things done. But there are some natural assumptions you make about what compels people.C-Level Executives care deeply about driving their business into the future. They care about creating a competitive advantage. Leaders are responsible for producing better results. They fear not knowing something that they need to know. C-Level Executives care about strategy, initiatives that drive big results, metrics that need improvement, and how they should think about the future.You are not compelling when you talk about your product, your service, or your solution unless or until you tie it to bigger themes.Management stakeholders care about executing and delivering results. They need to produce results, and the things that allow them to produce better results now are what compels them. Management stakeholders are compelled by metrics like revenue, costs, and profitability. But they are also compelled by the factors that drive those bigger categories, like productivity and throughput.When you talk about your product, service, or solution outside of the impact it will have on the results they need, you are not compelling. You are compelling when you focus on how to drive metrics like profitability when you tie them to other metrics like productivity.End user stakeholders, the people who use your product, service, or solution care deeply that it works. They need to execute, and their company measures them on things like productivity and throughput. They are compelled by things that help them do their job better, faster, and more easily. They care about the problems that prevent them from being able to do their work. They fear someone will sell their company something that makes it more difficult to produce the results for which they are responsible.You aren’t compelling to end-users when you talk about strategy, even though the C-Level executives in their company care deeply about how what you help serves their strategic needs. You aren’t compelling to end-user stakeholders when you talk to them about metrics on which they aren’t measured or don’t understand. You are compelling when you share how what you sell will help them, and that includes the features and benefits that differentiate you from your competitors.If you want to compel people to act and change, help them with what is already compelling them. You can make some pretty good assumptions about what they find compelling. Essential Reading!

Layoffs weeks before Christmas slammed 30 fired from Bahamas revenue unitLayoffs weeks before Christmas slammed 30 fired from Bahamas revenue unit
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, Bahamas – November 27, 2017 – An assertive tax collection system was last year announced by the Perry Christie Administration to be aimed at getting government monies in and getting more money from real property taxes which were deemed too low for some land owners.That project was reportedly working well said an employee who was terminated, with others from the Inland Revenue Department. The ex-employee said they were disappointed to have been let go just weeks before Christmas, but Marlon Johnson in a media report explained only that it was decided not to renew the employee contracts.Johnson, who is the Financial Secretary also said: “The department will continue to optimize its workforce and headcount to ensure that appropriate skill sets are retained and recruited as necessary, as the department consistently seeks to improve its service to the public.”There is no confirmation on how many employees were terminated, but one report says it is as many as 30 people.
