Zippy slices!

Sounds like the latest crappy kitchen device being hawked on the Shopping Channel. "As seen on TV!"

I just informed the rest of my team that we need to implement some flickery bullshit, STAT.

This gave me way more joy than I would have thought possible. Spinny orb with crosses FTW!

FWIW, the compression wave clip was not a pure compression wave; it also had a tube wave component.

(assuming the animation represented a cylinder, otherwise the 2nd component would be called a transverse wave)

And the Blockbusters theme tune!

I'd like an 'E' please, Bob. *snigger*

This will make my job of creating the 2010s equivalent of a vaporwave music video SO MUCH EASIER. See you in twenty years, future masterpiece!

Yep, forwarded to all my work UI people, "CAN WE DO THIS?!?"

Through my tears of joy.

Does everyone feel like they just completed a montage during which they went from being the nervous new girl at the office to the secretary who is running the whole damn place?

Or is that just me?

Not only have the effect names given me the titles for every single track on my forthcoming IDM album, but they've provided every single visual element for the pointless videos to go with.

Job. Done.

(ETA: Ah, Chrominance got there first...)

I was hoping for some Bill Griffith with a title like that. Yow.

Genuinely disappointed that these were for After Effects instead of some sort of Javascript HTML Canvas components that I could sprinkle into my work as easter eggs.

Crap. Starting the timer until we see these as screen filler in some crappy techno-cop show...
