The New Video Copilot

New & Improved Website
Welcome back to a few new features and a lot more content. Our website is now on it’s own dedicated server so hopefully we can handle all you video junkies. The ground work has been laid for future development and continuous content for everyone. Special thanks to Marc Biorklund and our very own Patrick Otten for their knowledge & support.

Enhanced Tutorial Section

Our tutorial section is now database driven and much easier to update. It also has a pretty sleek appearance. (If I do say so myself.) You can search for keywords and leave comments directly. We’ve added more footage downloads to some of the older tutorials as well. You can also pause/play the tutorial by clicking the screen. Now that’s high-tech!

New Tutorial: Audio to Animation

We also have a fresh tutorial for you today and plenty more to come. There are many surprises to follow…

Free Basic Training Series
We now have a complete training series for After Effects users of all levels and the best part is, you get it for FREE. Enjoy all 10 video tutorials ranging from the basics to advanced tracking and animation. This one has something for everyone.

9 Free Animation Presets
Don’t miss this! We’ve added a new section that includes Free Animation Presets for After Effects. Not only do you get the preset but there is also a video demonstration to show you how to use it. Some of the presets are so amazing you’ll have to see for yourself.

I'm Sorry Shape Layers! I love you!
I must confess… I was never a big fan of shape layers…  we just didn’t get along.  I was used to using masks but suddenly (around AE CS3) the same mask tool began creating Red vector shapes. At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]
