Hi everyone, how are we doing. I hope everyone had a nice holiday season whatever your faith is. I'm Chris and a recent member to this forum. I guess I don't have any preconceived notions of the community climate towards one another here, but I do hope that the members here are much more mature than a forum I refuse to be a part of anymore. Anyway, I'm working on entering the field of professional web design and have just received an Associates degree. The next degree will come soon enough, but for now I have time to get involved with the latest trends of web and graphic design so here I am.

Thanks dv8, I appreciate it. I have to ask, based on your handle I get the impression you're involved with motion graphics. Adobe Ae, Pr, Ol?

Not really... I'm more of an all-arounder... lol....

I do the usual graphics design work as well as for architectural work purposes. I do 3d modelling and rendering on the side as a hobby or when business is slow.....

dv8's been my handle since the earliest days of the internet and yahoo.

Got it. I've been availing myself with AfterEffects for a short time now. Aside from the mega-huge files it produces, I find it a challenging yet relaxing hobby. Not really sure if there's such a thing as a professional web designer/motion graphics editor, but I can hope.

Yes I'm familiar with DAZ Studio only by name though. I haven't used it, but it seems to be quite the solid editor.

As well as a lot of the needed Character Models, Props and related stuff..... My lizard avatar is a Poser/DazStudio 3d model. Rendered in POSER but composed in PS.
