Dec 6 '13 at 15:19 comment added AJ Henderson @user3029101 - dfxr?
Dec 6 '13 at 14:58 comment added user3029101 OK. Last question. Anything better than dfxr ? Both fast and easy to use.
Dec 6 '13 at 14:54 comment added AJ Henderson @user3029101 - you will definitely want to check out Flash and Illustrator then. They can easily do side scrollers like that. You can make your sprites in Illustrator, bring them in to Flash and then script up the actions.
Dec 6 '13 at 14:52 comment added user3029101 In fact , I am not a web developer or designer. I have knowledge over OpenGL (Java particularly). It may be a while till I decide to code my own 3d game from scratch. For now on I am making these pixel side scrollers, till I get used to more advanced stuff. I am using LWJGL
Dec 6 '13 at 14:39 comment added AJ Henderson For video game design, it depends on what you want to design. Flash and Illustrator will allow you to design and build 2d sprite based games. If you want to do anything with 3D assets, the one product Adobe doesn't make is a 3d modeling application. Your options there are either Blender (FOSS), Cinema4D or one of the many Autodesk owned products (3DStudio Max, Maya, SoftImage). Illustrator is also generally useful for storyboarding as vector graphics can be resized and manipulated much more easily than raster graphics.
Dec 6 '13 at 14:35 comment added AJ Henderson @user3029101 - I don't particularly trust SSDs either, however what you can do is use them as a scratch space. Temp files will be written there and Adobe software will cache to it so that it can load quickly, but if it crashes out you won't be at any great loss. My setup is to use a 12TB Raid 5 array for all my long term storage and two striped SSDs for my working space. (I do copy over the assets I'm working on at that time as well, but they also stay on the RAID 5.) Note that Acrobat Reader is only a reader, but if you don't need to make PDFs you don't need Acrobat.
Dec 6 '13 at 14:15 comment added user3029101 I am going to add another 8 gigs for sure... (I had an issue with the h100, it leaked :'(). I dont trust SSDs here. they seem to get broken pretty easily... I think I will stick with the Ae - Me - Ps - Pp. I already have the free version of Acrobat , I do not think I will ever need to create a PDF . Also , they seem to be A LOT specialized. Do I need more stuff to do some video compositing/editing AND video game designing? I am a developer and I have stucked at the design thing!
Dec 6 '13 at 14:09 comment added AJ Henderson Oh, just an observation about your setup. You should upgrade the RAM. 8gigs will meet the minimum for what you are doing, but it will limit you. 12 to 16 GB would give you a significant advantage over 8. SSDs would be good if you don't already have them as well. The ability to move data quickly is just as important or more so than processing power when it comes to video.

Dec 6 '13 at 13:58 comment added AJ Henderson @user3029101 - yes, there are a lot of Adobe products. Adobe Encore has traditionally been bundled with Adobe Premiere and is the DVD/Bluray authoring package. Adobe also used to have bundles of software that included sets of applications related to different tasks or the Master Collection which included all the Creative Suite (now CC) apps. Once you learn what all the Adobe software does, it really isn't that hard to use in your workflow.
Dec 6 '13 at 12:15 comment added user3029101 Adobe encore? Too damn many adobe programs! I have installed Ps CC , Ae CC and Media Encoder CC (Im going with Creative Cloud). My PC has 8 gigs of ram and GTX 660 gigabyte windforce GPU . The processor is hydrocooled with the h100i. Now , adobe premiere pro... OK , Im downloading it. Any list in which I can see the adobe products? (BTW just for joining clips fast I use Movie Maker sometimes!)
