A New Competitor for Adobe After Effects has Landed? 

The name of this new software is Cavalry, and it’s looking very good at this early Beta stages.

Made for Windows and MAC and mainly focused in Motion Design, Generative Art, Character Animation, Data Visualization, FUI, Visual Effects and much more.

Built on a modern, innovative architecture and conceived to accommodate a wide range of applications, Cavalry’s feature set is growing very fast.

I am already excited to see what they will come up with in the near future.

Cavalry’s renderer runs on your GPU meaning animation can be played back in real time and any changes updated live.

When I read this I went … Wow! I think this may be worth taking a look at.

You can join the Beta program at  https://cavalry.scenegroup.co/ and share your animations with the hashtag  #cavalryapp

Starting this new adventure as a teacher

was amazing

This week was very exciting for me. I received an invitation to become a teacher at Crehana .

Crehana.com is a Peruvian company dedicated to the production of online courses; or “unique educational experiences” as they call them. The company has a variety of courses in diverse creative fields and is growing very fast specially in South America.

Their numbers are incredible:


  • More than 700,000 students around the globe.
  • More than 24,000 uploaded projects, and
  • More than 450, 000 published courses

This is a totally new experience for me. I could never imagine that someday I was going to be teaching so many people, what I’ve learned in all this years in the audiovisual field. I am already excited waiting to have my course online and see what the students think about it. It has been an amazing experience for me and I hope to do this again very soon if people like it!

This first days I’ve recorded my screencast lessons and tomorrow I will be filming my on camera lessons and speeches (crossing my fingers and a bit nervous), but their team is very professional so everything should run smoothly.

I want to thank especially my family and friends that have been so supportive in this new journey I’ve been embarked.
