Launching a website is a lot of work…

Hey thoughtful and understanding community!

Things are moving along well but there was more to do than I realized. I do have a tutorial I will post to keep you occupied in the mean time. We should be ready to launch this week, but I want to wait until the weekend to minimize any possible down time. I wish I could tell you about all the cool new stuff…

I hate those deadlines... Somehow I knew, that you won't be ready till Monday. It's probably because all good things needs their time... to become perfect.
Best wishes and thanks for the upcoming tutorial!

Morten Enoksen,
I have a feeling it's on how to move things like telepathic abilities or something like that (:
August 27th, 2007 @ 7:13 am
I’ve had problems viewing the tutorials on this site in the past.

it stops when half the tutorial is downloaded, hopefully this new server will fix that.
August 27th, 2007 @ 7:33 am

Either way Andrew, your tuts and site are always top notch, so take your time on whatever you have working right now.

We are all totally grateful for everything you do, and your products rock. Thanks for everything.

Don't worry about all of us. I am sure everyone will survive in the mean time.
August 27th, 2007 @ 9:02 am

You are creating so much value for the world Andrew. Your ideas and tutorial are the most inspiring things I've seen in a LONG time and it's very refreshing.

I'm a dad of 4 and understand the stress of bringing a baby into this world. I hope you have a wonderful experience with your wife at this special time. The world can wait :)

All the best.
August 27th, 2007 @ 10:04 am
I'm very excited about the new tutorial, but just dont tire yourself out completely. Good luck on the new site, it's gonna rock !
August 27th, 2007 @ 10:40 am
I never thought i'd be so hungry to see a new tutorial... I don't think i've ever been excited to learn before in my life. Any ETA on the release? Thanks for keeping us posted. Hope all is well.
August 27th, 2007 @ 10:43 am
No rush, Andrew. I'm sure its difficult trying to juggle so many things at once, and still doing everything so well :P. Keep at it. Can't wait for the new tutorial too.

Best wishes

Oh and take a breather Andrew. We're patient people :). Atleast the majority :P.
August 27th, 2007 @ 10:52 am

AK!!! I've been a HUGE fan of your tuts (and your products of course) for quite some time now and I have to say that my success as a film editor is a big result of your tuts and your amazing talent. Thanks for everything brother and keep them coming (but take your time...I'd rather they be more informative and detailed, than not)!!

wow, I just saw it on youtube, it was pretty cool!

August 27th, 2007 @ 11:39 am
Check it out. A little Film Magic Pro, some Adv. Sky replacement, add some Designer SFX, and a attempt at re-creating your car hit scene. Where the dude walks acrossed the street and gets hit by a van. Let me know what you think if you get a chance. Constructive feedback is always more than welcome. Sorry about the youtube quality.
Helge Kallevik
August 27th, 2007 @ 11:50 am
Wow, i hope the new tutorial is on how to get hit by a car!!
August 27th, 2007 @ 12:07 pm
Any chances of you posting some samples of the designer sound fX for download?
August 27th, 2007 @ 12:31 pm
