Andrew, if you are reading this: Please think about your health. Don't work too hard. I know you have to upload this tutorial ASAP to stop the spam in this blog entry, but you need to get some sleep too.

In Bulgarian:

Andrew - Андрей - manly (from greek аndros (άνδρας) - man). Saint Andrei was a farmer, whose ox was eaten by a bear. He managed to catch the bear, harnessed it and used it to work his land. Thats why he is the patron/protector of the bears, and his name day is celebrated on the 30 November.

Hope it was interesting

I live in Eugene Oregon, which is right across the river from Springfield, and is the Shelbyville that they make fun of in the show. If you go from Eugene to springfield, you will notice all of the street lights are a bright yellow, hence the Yellow Simpsons. (No, I'm not making this up). The founder of Eugene (Shelbyville) was a trapper named Eugene Skinner. And we have a Skinner's Butte here in town. Just thought those were cool trivia facts.

I suspect your tutorial to have something to do with the new puppet tool, right?
Animating characters and all that.

It's a very useful tool, like if you need someone to get run over by car..
You could use the puppet tool to shape the actors body so it bends over the hood and stuff like that.

try RedGiant's Magic Bullet Suit for AE. one click and its done!
this is the fastest way (but it costs $800).
the other (and maybe the better, and cheapest) way is to wait for andrew's tutorial :)

so andrew where can i send you a truck full of beer?
oh sorry... you have a wife... no drinkin' then!
maybe next time... :)

best wishes!

Oohh, i got something to ask you. Why don't you make the
09 Speed Up After Effects with Proxies
tutorial link directly to the swf page? Not that going through the creativecow site is hard or anything, but just to make it the same as with other tuts.

See ya.

It's not the day to night, although tutorial is going to be great. Even though John is pretty much right on I guess I'll still make it for next time.

is it how to win a million dollar or the tips and tricks on how to get a job with Industrial Light nad Magic hihi okay not good in humour..anyways day to night can wait..the surprise seems too good to be missed...
For people who needs to do day to night..the baic thing abt it is.. motion track ur scene, change color to blueish, saturate it a bit, and put on lights(that is why we have to track the motion) on the street, coming from within the house, car headlights etc...but im sure Andrew got some useful tricks up his sleeves..anyways i cant wait!!

great!!! I Can't wait!!!!

Another BETTER green screen and still CHEAP (cost wise) is
to go to a local fabric store and look for a roll of lime-green fabric.
choose how much you want and they'll cut it for you. put some metal rings in it at the top, and put some hooks in the ceiling and hang it. Put 2 or 3 flood lights from a local hardware store and you're set! Just make sure the subject is AT LEAST 2 feet away from the scren (so it wont cast any shadows).

Hey Andrew, maybe you could still do your day for night idea at another time, but maybe fill it out with tips on both day for night and dry for wet.

Stuff like using Particular to add "underwater particulate" matter to slowed/time remapped footage, underwater light falloff, etc...

....or not:)

Another Good cheap green screen is the "Royal Brites" brand of florescent poster paper. Walmart sells them for about $0.90 a sheet.

you can also find them Here:
http://www.theroyalstore.com/index.php?cat=23&p=58&ccat=8

Its great because the paper is cheap, so you can use it on places where it gets dirty, and you can cut it down to any shape you want. the only issue I had with it was light "hot spots" where the lights were overexposing the paper. I just moved the lights further away and it worked fine.

WOA WOA WOA. NOT SO FAST PEOPLE.

the day to night tutorial is a day to night tutorial,
but the mystery tutorial could be anything.
IT COULD EVEN BE THE DAY TO NIGHT TUTORIAL!

WE'LL TAKE THE MYSTERIOUS TUTORIAL!


haha and in case you dont know where thats from,
