I have to admit, I'm downright jealous of the updates that were announced today about AE CS7. I have to give credit to Maxon and Adobe From the looks of it, they've really pushed the boundaries between 2D and 3D, and I can't wait to see what artists come up with.
So far, the most complete details can be found here at Pro Video Coalition. A very impressive upgrade. Very interested in seeing what 'C4D Lite' contains. I never thought much of After Effects' implementation of a 3D workspace, so this blows my mind.
I'm just hoping that The Foundry could do something like this with Nuke and modo.
