New Tutorial

Everything should be back online in the tutorial section. I had planned to do a tutorial on “day to night”, but I think I will do a better one instead.

I CHOOSE the mystery box. He says its better then day and night.

the mystery box could be anything,.
July 22nd, 2007 @ 6:44 pm
i think mystery would be cool cuase we have no idea what kind a mystery he is working on .maybe indiana kramer 5. the hidden tutorial.
July 22nd, 2007 @ 6:50 pm
We'll still get to the day to night but trust me the mystery tutorial is what you want. Trust me, ha ha ha ha!!!
July 22nd, 2007 @ 6:51 pm

If anyone wants a good cheap greenscreen go to party city and buy the green tablecloth things they are plastic and are pretty cheap.
TJ
July 22nd, 2007 @ 7:24 pm
Aaaahhhh... I was kinda relying on you for that Day to Night tutorial man! Now that's just scary =)
I've got a project at the moment that needs it!
Oh well... still really looking forward to the mystery tutorial. No hard feelings =)
July 22nd, 2007 @ 7:31 pm
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!
you know how much we've wanted one of those.

WE'LL TAKE THE MYSTERIOUS TUTORIAL!


haha and in case you dont know where thats from,
ALL YOU NON-FANS;
family guy (:

bring on the mystery andrew.
July 22nd, 2007 @ 7:44 pm
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.
July 22nd, 2007 @ 7:45 pm
I hope it includes simulated wet surfaces and reflections!

GGGAAA!!! ANDREW I JUST WANT TO PUNCH YOU!!! ANOTHER SECRET! Lol you fill everyone with so much anticipation until they burst like I just did. Dang you are sure good at that! CANT WAIT!!!!!
ragecg
July 22nd, 2007 @ 8:47 pm
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:)
July 22nd, 2007 @ 9:13 pm
Hey uhm I don't know where to post this, but the tigerdirect guys they are from tigerdirect.com looks like they used one of your tutorials http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kne1f9WJUiA
July 22nd, 2007 @ 9:28 pm
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).

July 22nd, 2007 @ 10:03 pm
I'm not trying to set myself up for failure, but I can safely say this is going to be one of the best tutorials of all time.
Now that's anticipation ; )

John Paite
July 22nd, 2007 @ 11:45 pm
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!!
July 22nd, 2007 @ 11:46 pm
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.

to Jimmy:
if you need 'day to night' to one of your project
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!

The Day to Night one is great and all but trust me you want to see this one first.
Piotr Piotrowicz
July 23rd, 2007 @ 3:06 am
Andrew, could you give us a hint on what it is?

I hope it has somthing to do with invisibility, ive looked into it myself, but never seen an extremely great example
July 23rd, 2007 @ 3:12 am
hmm.. what about those morphing thingies. i dont know how to explain it..err like morphing one guys face to another or from one action sequence (of guys face) then zooms out into a different scene... or something.

Orhan
July 23rd, 2007 @ 3:56 am
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.
m.abulazm
July 23rd, 2007 @ 4:05 am
it's VFX .... no one can imagine or predict what Andrew will do.
don't waste your time to know the surprise, just relax and wait.
Orhan
July 23rd, 2007 @ 4:10 am
Oh I'm relaxed, I'm just writing because I feel like it.

But please, please do the day4night next, cause we are shooting a horror flick atm and most of it's night footage is/ will be shot during the day/dusk!

You're doing a great job Andrew and I really look forward to this new footage collection you're doing. I'll buy that for sure!

July 23rd, 2007 @ 4:31 am
These things take a while, I'm not sitting on a pile of tutorials and slowly releasing them to tease you. I only announce them when they are imminent. But occasionally something great comes along and takes priority over the queue.
Piotr Piotrowicz
July 23rd, 2007 @ 4:36 am
Andrew, we know thats not what your doing, but we also know that you love it when it happens, cuz you can see us guessing away at what it will be, and although our attempts are practically futile, they make you feel proud because you know that you have thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people that respect you and your tutorials, and that is why wee sleep well at night, knowing that you think about us because of this blog.
Piotr Piotrowicz
July 23rd, 2007 @ 4:41 am
Hey andrew, while we wait, do you watch any anime? and if so what is your favorite?

Skip other priority (expect birth of child) and release the tutorial !!!!!! :D

P.S. Andrew, they moved the simpsons premiere from springfield Oregon to Springfield Vermont. Matt Groening is from Oregon, and I am very angry they are moving it. I had a chance to go to the premiere!

Trivia: Why are the simpsons yellow?

Where does Principal Skinner get his name?

i suggest to first upload, then post "new tutorial"

They are yellow beacouse Matt Groening wanted you to think your TV don't work well... and principal Skinner stole the name from his colonel (i think) in Vietnam, his real name is something like Tanzania

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.

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
