High Quality Promo for DSFX

Here is a Quicktime version of the Designer Sound FX promo for those who asked for it. There is a lot of detail that gets lost when you compress to Flash. It is nice to share the original.

Just bought the DSFX and Riot Gear... great products. One question I have and I hope this is a good place to post it is, At the beginning of the DSFX promo, you had a light streak fly through. I didn't see this in the project files that came with DSFX. Can you tell me how you created this. It really caught my eye when I first seen the promo and I would be curious to hear how this was created. Thanks, keep up the great work!

On a houston public tv station....it say visual and sound effects that very similar to yours. I could tell they used your stuff and adapted it to their message.

Hi Andrew I have 2 questions for you about that awesome trailer promo.

1. What is that last drum beat build up? Is it number 28? I heard something like that in a transformers TV spot.

2. How did you get the ice to look cracked in the promo? I know you used a picture from Riot Gear and layered it on top of the ice, but how did you do it?

Thanks!!!

Hey Andrew, I just got your product and it is amazing!! Just 2 things: 1) iTunes is great for organizing but Windows Media Player plays back with better quality, keep that in mind if you listen to music. and 2) you always look like you are really busy, do you devote time to your wife?(I had a problem that I was always busy with graphics and my girlfriend dumped me because I never spent time with her being the nerd that I am)(and she was kind of temperamental too).

@Dustin James:
I think it was done with Trapcode Particular. Check out this Light Streaks Tutorial:

It's the same, only with a simple form and without any turbulence and wiggle.

@Andrew Kramer:
I think we need a forum. ;-)

The cracks are from a texture from the Riot Gear collection. http://www.videocopilot.net/riotgear.html

I just tinted them blue.

Also, one interesting point is that the cracks don't get bigger, but perhaps the sounds make it seem like they do. Sound makes a big difference...
Noah

That
was
really
cool

Just curious, how did you do the cracks on that one background, you know, where the cracks got bigger each time they got hit. I'm guessing it's something with fractal noise, but I couldn't get there to be a central "crack" point.

Is it possible to recreate this texture in AE?
also in the soundfx product page there is "500 soundFX" title this is done a 3D program or AE?

3dsmax was used to to create the ICE. Our resident 3D guy, Bobby Hommel pulled that image together. We worked on the shatter system and used multiple forces to "explode" it. The Lens flare at the end is from Knoll Lens flare pro, and on the DVD, I just used the regular lens flare and it looked just as good.
Great Andrew!
thanks for sharing the trailer on the real Quick time formats, few question i like to know, though i know its inside the products but i guess you can share a little, the ice background, how did you create that so real, basically i understand how the reverse shatter effect was made, but the ice back ground and the text effect at the begining which says : video-copilot , can you just give us a tip of how its be done
