    Why we love Mocha Pro by Imagineer Systems!

    Optical Flares is a must have plug in for the AE user.

    Tweet Sometimes people do things at the exact right time. Like Magic Johnson taking a last second shot to win the title over the Celtics.

On my last film I would send MOV file to my executive producer and call him up to go over the cut.
