Deleted Scenes

Well it is no secret that sometimes I cut out little things from my tutorials. There are a lot of considerations when this happens. Usually for good reason, I don’t like to over complicate things with endless sidebars that make the tutorial seem convoluted or many other reasons such as:

  • Effects that take too long
  • Senselessness
  • Not Humorous
  • Sad and Disappointing
  • Sake of Professionalism
  • Rendering times (figure 2 minutes of rendering to 1 final)
  • Corporate sponsors Like Coke & Pepsi, (not yet sponsors)
  • Incoherent rambling and childish name-calling

Here are a few deleted scenes from the vault.
Watch Now

NOTE: I know it goes black for a sec towards the end.Long story, but it is part of the moving 3D lines tutorial.

July 18th, 2007 @ 3:23 am
first to post!!!!!
July 18th, 2007 @ 3:28 am
Really great i enjoying it now!! ;)
July 18th, 2007 @ 3:37 am
The google bit I thought was the best.
July 18th, 2007 @ 3:42 am
HAHAHAHA, I laughed like crazy at the start. Rofl AHAHHAHAAHAHAHAHA. Best joke ever! Still listening, BRB! ;p
July 18th, 2007 @ 3:46 am
Release a bloopers-scene, would be funny to see the masters mouth mess up or do something wrong ;p
July 18th, 2007 @ 3:47 am
Heh, nice ... "aftershake" was best :)
July 18th, 2007 @ 3:49 am
That came out abit wrong, I mean: Give more bloopers. Love hearing all the funny stuff that can come out of that! : )
July 18th, 2007 @ 4:21 am
good to know that your human! Love it!
July 18th, 2007 @ 4:29 am
So thats what the file was in the sky tutorial. I was thinking it was something your wife wouldn't approve.
July 18th, 2007 @ 4:31 am
Is "gradiated" a real word?? ;)

Nice work, Andrew!
July 18th, 2007 @ 4:35 am
Lol excellent! this is so funny lol
July 18th, 2007 @ 4:40 am
I'm pretty sure that saying Refracting 3d Reflections is truly as harder to say than it may appear. lol. nice work Andrew.
July 18th, 2007 @ 4:42 am
Nice work as always Andrew!

Personally I would like to see more of the 'Effects that take too long'..
A more advanced tutorial = a more fun tutorial =)
July 18th, 2007 @ 4:50 am
Hehe TuxedoKat, I was thinking the same thing. That Andrew was colorcorrecting his...dirty movies...
July 18th, 2007 @ 4:58 am
I'll try to put out some more "advanced" stuff, but I do have to keep an even balance.
July 18th, 2007 @ 5:01 am
huhu ! I see that you spend crazy afternoon at home :p
July 18th, 2007 @ 5:19 am
Andrew - Keep an even balance? You're soon upto 50 tutorials, and the tutorials scale nicely, so I don't see a problem keeping on with the long more advanced tutorials.
July 18th, 2007 @ 5:22 am
That was pretty funny. Kind of puts me in the mood for a milkshock. Errr... I mean milkshake.
July 18th, 2007 @ 5:22 am
HAHAHA aftershake. God bless google lol. I bet 90% of people will search those words themselves.
The new guy
July 18th, 2007 @ 5:32 am
Hahah that was funny :D
Some Guy
July 18th, 2007 @ 5:34 am
Thank you, Andrew! That was very funny and very informative at the same time. I think it's the best video on I did know how to do a lightwrap in Photoshop for a still image but couldn't find out how to achieve it in After Effects. And the stuff you showed with that brought me to some cool ideas. I never thought before to use a ramp with an adjustment layer to apply effects. So, thank you for listening to your community and bringing out this amazing blooper reel. Things like this makes you to the best tutor on the internet.
July 18th, 2007 @ 5:44 am
mmmh ... if i say all your tutorials are boring ... will you use more girl in there ?! :P I don't know what you drink Mr. K. but there's some funny times.
July 18th, 2007 @ 5:54 am
July 18th, 2007 @ 6:07 am
Can you tell me the name of the neverending book? Mine all have endings....
July 18th, 2007 @ 6:08 am
Hahahahah!!! cool!! the meaning of life!!!
July 18th, 2007 @ 6:18 am
You are funny as jim carrey in 23... just kidding! You are really funny. Aftershake, After Effects!
July 18th, 2007 @ 6:26 am
great! aftershake!
July 18th, 2007 @ 6:35 am
I think we should all lobby Adobe to change the "wiggle" command to "aftershake".
July 18th, 2007 @ 6:43 am
You guys are cracking me up!

Yva? What happend, i thought we were friends...
July 18th, 2007 @ 6:58 am
Hey you ever actually got anything from your shamless plugs?
July 18th, 2007 @ 7:24 am
love this! you should do stand-up!
July 18th, 2007 @ 7:30 am
Aww **** LOL hilarious...
July 18th, 2007 @ 7:39 am
Sorry to double post, but I got two questions for you Andrew if you care to Andrew... When do you care to show some of your movies you made and could you talk to Kathlyn for me about my tutorials I submitted to the cow about a year or so ago, she said shes posting them, but they never got up there and I can't get ahold of her.

July 18th, 2007 @ 7:42 am
lol :)
thx andrew
July 18th, 2007 @ 7:43 am
Hey Andrew...

of course we are cracking you up. Hehe; if anyone is smart/intelligent and AT THE SAME TIME as funny - its you!.

And thats not a joke (saying it in your words ;-)

Personally what I liked best was the really creative jokes in the last two Tutorials (you know, 10000 miles of fishing string and 500 Laserpointers to blow up to moon = ROFL, LOL, ROFL)

Just wondering: How do you figure that out so make such jokiful tutorials? Are all those just Ideas of the second? Or do you collect them for the next one?

But nevertheless be careful: One day you have "your shirt turnes inside-out" :D

PS: Besides I found a market giving away free Computers (and the ones even YOU could not affort- not even in for stupidest dreams (which of course you have, I suppose :-P)

:D:D:D (Just remember your Promo-Tutorial for Filmmagig Pro ^^
July 18th, 2007 @ 7:50 am
Eheh funny but also useful, i found some useful tips too ;)
July 18th, 2007 @ 8:06 am

July 18th, 2007 @ 8:08 am
Lol the never ending of the ever never ever ending book. I thought you were going to say never ending story lol. Atreyuuuuuuuuuuuu xD
July 18th, 2007 @ 8:21 am
The Eglish language is so funny. Andrew, you are funny!
Orc Master
July 18th, 2007 @ 8:25 am
LOOOOOL!!!! MAN, that was so GOOD!!!

It was informative AND funny, just like Videocopilot is supposed to be ;) LOL, looking forward to that girl tutorial, whatever it might be. Also, the first part was hilarious! THAT actually showed me the meaning of life! :P

Wiggle, aftershake... It's all the same! But aftershock? :s
July 18th, 2007 @ 8:35 am
Ha ha, the ending just killed me. :D

I started to wonder what that "Girl"-thing was in the last tutorial. I must say I am disappointed.:P

keep up the good work
July 18th, 2007 @ 8:40 am
Wow...this is getting insane. Aftershake...haha. Andrew, you are crazy for sure!

Good stuff... very informative and fun at the same time..

I liked the finger tapping cut while it was rendering... cause I do the exact same thing... I started laughing hard...

It must be my computer, it looks as if somebody exceeded their post box with a bunch of ha ha's.
How is this possible? “Inconceivable!” =o
July 18th, 2007 @ 12:33 pm
Very nice !!!! thank you andrew !

ps : If one day you create a dvd with all tutorials, you can put this video in bonus section !
July 18th, 2007 @ 12:33 pm
After Shake...Hmmm, sounds to me like an Adobe/Apple software merger. Maybe they'll do After Motion, too. Funny stuff, AK.

July 18th, 2007 @ 1:12 pm
:D great stuff... by the way, does anyone know how i can get fonts into after effects? I got this beautiful Predator font but cant use it, so does anyone know how i can get this font into after effects? thanks in advance ;)
July 18th, 2007 @ 1:16 pm
Andrew youre "taking over the world" plan is actually working. Wikipedia is even mentioning you now, go to [url][/url] and look at the plug-ins!!
July 18th, 2007 @ 1:20 pm
Aftershake sounds like a nice thing to drink lonely Friday nights... or maybe a beforeshake, after which you shake your ass AND just THEN get an aftershake...
rejuvenation potions = wiggle effect

what logic
July 18th, 2007 @ 1:38 pm

how come when you typed
aftershock in Google it was already
searched before? hahaha

anyways, funny stuff
July 18th, 2007 @ 2:08 pm
That's why Videocopilots rules!!! yea baby!!!!
July 18th, 2007 @ 2:28 pm
I am going to name my first born "After Shake" It's strong but gentle. Plus it's unisex so it could be a boy or girl. Thanks for making my morning less crappy, now back to the grind.
July 18th, 2007 @ 2:54 pm
The ha-ha overflow is messed u-p because of the ha ha's being one word. For the render engine this means no linebreak. If it was like hahahahahah haha(mention the whitespace) then your browser would have applied a linebreak.

fix for IE: add in css: word-wrap: break-word;
Firefox wraps whenever it can AFTER a whitespace. so big bug, know for years, dno why it's never fixed.

This fix doesn't comply to W3C rules and therefore stay away from it :) Opera seems to handle it fine I guess.
July 18th, 2007 @ 3:30 pm
Your sense of humor is why i keep coming back, ohh and the great training.
July 18th, 2007 @ 4:58 pm
haha, nice. the "aftershake" :D
John Paite
July 18th, 2007 @ 5:58 pm
lightwrap is gonna be so useful for blending an actor(shot infrnt of a greenscreen) with the bg..
...I love aftershake ohh i mean after effect and its felxibility!! hahaha
July 18th, 2007 @ 6:15 pm
Aftershake was the best, also the Refracting Reflacting was great.

Output MOAR Bloopers.
July 18th, 2007 @ 6:19 pm
Hey what's up Djeki Bidjerano here
In my room
Writing a pathetic comment
Its about 1:15
Im all alone
And its dark
Just about out of electricity
Need to find the candle
Ive been in the attic all day reading a book
Its called Writing a comment for DUmmys
It never ends
Its an endless book
The story never ends
Its about this brave Knight
That never ends

July 18th, 2007 @ 7:42 pm
hey, tnx for the tip.... :(
July 18th, 2007 @ 7:58 pm

July 18th, 2007 @ 8:18 pm
I was hoping for the mid-week tutorial..

I thought you might post that up today.. but i guess not.. mmmhh.. hint.. (please)

I'm bored and my g/f is at a fashion show and I'm needing something to do/make...

some inspiration.. maybe... just.. well.. anything..
July 18th, 2007 @ 9:31 pm
In the last video you said you can not control the wiggle that it is always shaking. Im sure you know this but you can control it if you link the wiggle expression to a expression controller such as a slider. Just thought I'd bring this up. Hope you don't think I'm a smart ass. Good stuff like always

July 18th, 2007 @ 10:37 pm
Ahaha...'After Shake'

...Classic Kramer

July 19th, 2007 @ 2:40 am
Apologies for posting a query - can Andrew or anyone reading this please point to tutorials showing how to create a Flash carousel similar to the one done in the Products page of Videocopilot?

Thanks in advance :-)

Great stuff Andrew, the initial part remids me of Monty Python!!!
Thanks for everything!!!
July 19th, 2007 @ 3:32 am
I just want to say to all these people that came here to visit the Andrew Kramer's web:
Just buy the DVD's, it worth it!!!!!!!!!
I have bought all of them and I am really happy!!!!
Help Andrew keep this web working on!!!!
By the way, I do not know Andrew and I am not his friend, but I would like...

Comprad los DVD's,merece la pena!!!!!
Yo he comprado todos y es lo mejor que he podido hacer!!!!!
Comprando los DVD's ayudamos a Andrew a mantener la página!!!!!
Por cierto no soy amigo, ni conozco a Andrew aunque me gustaria

Love from Spain,
July 19th, 2007 @ 3:43 am
i love andrew , and his tutorials .
when he teach something he has positive energy and every body who listens to it like it .
that's really great .
if u don't understand me , just buy Gnomon's boujou training DVD . and after 5 minutes u'll be sleep on ur desk right infront of computer .

thanks andrew for ur great tutorials
July 19th, 2007 @ 5:34 am
I have to say that Mehrad is right ! Lot of video tutorials I have seen was sooooo boringgggg ... soporiphic voice ...
Maybe some on Creative Cow are nice but at this time, tell me who is as good as Andrew ? ok, Andrew, we are friends :)
July 19th, 2007 @ 6:10 am
agree with Mehrad,lynda's sucks,totaltraining is toooooo long and boring~Andrew is the best from now on
July 19th, 2007 @ 6:29 am
That was something... Like Bloopers, or WaTTS on Eurosport :D Man I love you, I wish I was a female xD
Jacob Behunin
July 19th, 2007 @ 7:16 am also doesnt offer this kind of training. They cover the basics of the program. They also have a "title techniques" dvd, but they're kinda lame.
Andrew Kramer can school them any day of the week.
HEY, Heres and Idea. Maybe Andrew Kramer should do a Training DVD, and up their standards a bit haha

July 19th, 2007 @ 7:19 am
Hey Drew, is it okay if I call you Drew? I posted a short thanks to all the folks here at 'Copilot for checking out my blog over the past couple of days. Thanks to your site and this blog, I went from 10 hits a day to 700 plus! I know it's probably no where near what you get in a day, but it's pretty amazing to me how awesome that it! Cheers!

That new video of Mr. Barringer is nice.. i noticed that your lightwrap layer was several px higher than the rest of the comp... (it might be a different layer...)

sorry if you meant for that.. it was just going above the letterbox..
July 19th, 2007 @ 9:43 am
Hey Andrew, Sam & everybody.

I feel sorry 4da bunch of ha ha’s I posted yesterday, I did'nt mean anything wrong, it was my mistake.

Anyways SORRY Everybody & I apologize for my Mistake

Thnx & Regards
July 19th, 2007 @ 10:10 am
@ Dustin James, actually that's not light wrap. My dumbass exported the video out from AE at a different size than what I exported it at in Final Cut. So what youre actually seeing are the black bars from my first export. I must have had the black bars when I brought it into AE and added the lighting effects onto pof it so it looks lighter. wont happen again hopefully :) thanks for checkin out Berringer. Were doing some more shooting in 2 weeks. Expecting some big things for this project. I cant wait to share it with everybody. Stay tuned!
Dustin James
July 19th, 2007 @ 11:39 am

now go to your room...

July 19th, 2007 @ 12:23 pm
... and no After Effects for 2 weeks!
July 19th, 2007 @ 12:53 pm
How about a tutorial on broadcast output to dvd, tape or whatever to be able to get the best quality possible.....I always seem to edit something and it looks awsome on the computer...I put it on a dvd to check it out on tv and I am like What the hell happened. It looks nothing like it did on the computer.
July 19th, 2007 @ 1:20 pm
that was great, its really good to see that you make mistakes just like we do. I had an image of you being an after effects programmed robot lol
July 19th, 2007 @ 1:23 pm
Thanks for all the great info.

One question: What are you shooting these videos on? HD?, HDV?, Mini-Dv?

Did I say one question--cause I meant two!

When I try tracking I have the hardest time finding a point that doesn't become blurry at some point and throws the tracker off--I shoot on a Panasonic DVX100A 24P advanced.

Any ideas?

Thanks again--this site is why the internet doesn't suck!
July 20th, 2007 @ 12:23 am
I use HDV JVC HD200

You some times have to track by hand moving the cross-hair as needed. Or larger track points.
July 21st, 2007 @ 1:32 am
Andrew cross hair's are for first person shooters like counter strike, were not playing them right now gosh.
July 21st, 2007 @ 5:26 am
haha Andrew, my god laughed so hard when you started with the google search on "aftershake" haha genious
