Keeping skills sharp at a day job

PostTue Aug 03, 2021 7:35 pm

Due to COVID, I find myself running a front desk at the moment and I'm not thrilled about it. I do get a fair amount of down time though so I installed Fusion 7 to screw around with when I'm not busy. Fusion 7 was the latest version this office computer can run. Anyway, saw a forum post on Facebook the other day about someone wanting to make the famous cheek glow effect that Video Copilot did over a decade ago. I followed the tutorial at home last night, translating it to Fusion. Then today at work I decided to recreate from scratch and memory. Here's the result. I don't have a way to track it to the footage, but it was fun building the effect in between answering phone calls.

ABL... "always be learning".

You definitely have to find the time to better yourself even despite your day job.
