Big Week!

This is a very exciting week for some big news and announcements. As you know we are quickly approaching the 50th Video Copilot Tutorial and we will be having a special celebration and we’ll also be announcing a brand new DVD that you don’t want to miss. (Hint: it is not a sequel to any of our current products)

Of course we have a brand new tutorial this week that should be a lot of fun and may include a special demonstration by yours truly. I hate to be so generic but there is too much excitement and I had to let you know.

And more importantly, I’m going to be Indiana Jones for Halloween :)

Element 3D V2 Official Release Date!
Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2! Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in! This update is insane! What can I say, we like to push the limits of technology and features, but […]
Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]
Pixel Screen Experiment!
Here is a fun experiment I created to simulate cool LCD Pixel effects using built-in plug-ins only! It uses the Camera Lens Blur effect along with a depth map to create realistic DOF. Watch Breakdown on Youtube Download Project File (CS6) Sound FX Created with MotionPulse!
Announcing Element 3D V2!
It has been a little over 2 years since the release of Element 3D V1 and I still remember it quite vividly. I recall staying up all night before the launch, trying to get everything done. I was nervous and excited.  My son Josh had just been born a week earlier and I was working from home at the time. […]

Hey Andrew, what kind of camera are you using? I use the Sony Z1-U, but I want a new one that shoots in 24P modes. Just wanted to say that your doing a great job here and I have a question? I see you have alot of footage to use in your tutorials. Do you have some movies that you made that we can watch, like some shorts are something? If so where can I check them out?

As it seems there is a delay in the release of this new "Product DVD",
And as such we should all be patient as to it's "Arrival".

There are many factors in life, And in Business that make it Almost "Impossible" to be precise to the exact date of a new product release.

So my advise is to relax those "Mouse Fingers" and give Andrew Kramer time to "Iron out the Details" so we can fully enjoy this new "DVD Release" and it's price tag that I'm sure will be "Affordable" to us all.

Not to mention any free tutorial that may accompany it.

I don't mean to complain, because I absolutely love this site, and yes, I have bought some of your DVDs, but I thought you said this was going to be a big week... I guess the week's not officially over, but practically... Just wondering if you meant "Big Month".

We are a big part of Andrews income. Which i don't mind giving him because he gives us these wonderful tutorials for free. What other website does these things for the people? Only our man Andrew.

Andrew has set the bait, now we patiently wait...
These fantastic DVDs take time to produce and I for one an certain, it will be worth the wait!
I have no idea where Andrew finds the time these days for his own clients, family(especially new daughter), while still taking care of all of us After Effects Junkies;)

Awesome! Great news! Looking forward to it. I just received Designer Sound FX and Film Magic Pro, coupled with my existing Serious FX & Compositing and Riot Gear ... and all your fantastic tutorials ... I am putting together stuff that while simple in comparison to what you can do, is definitely impressing my friends and family. And that's what it's really all about anyway, isn't it? :D

Keep up the great work. It is very appreciated. Looking forward to what you got cooking for us!

We really do NEED a formal forum here I think. So many times I want to ask questions (like this one) which are, strictly speaking, off topic from where they are posted but related to the tutorials and/or VC products.

I'm interested to see if anyone is interested in sharing AE projects containing compositions made from the sound FX disk. Not to include the sound FX you understand, just the projects themselves so they would only work for those who have the soundFX product. Might need to search for the sounds files but that's OK.

I'd love to see and/or share build ups/fanfares etc with others.

And just to bring this post back on topic. Can't wait for the new product. I have little doubt I'll be making a purchase along with the offline tutorials disk when it's available. As I hope both these new products will appear quite close together I hope a special 'bundle' price is going to be available ;-)

best wishes to the family.

If all the online tutorials were put on a DVD I would buy them! For $50 or more :)

Having access to the tutorials offline would be really cool, especially when you are looking for something in the latter parts of a tutorial you wouldnt have to wait for 20 minutes of it to buffer!

It's amaizing how much influence Andrew has had on AE users (especialy young ones).
if u type in something witch incluedes AE, for example in Youtube, u'll see the result of Andrew's free tutorials and products! Andrew, most of what I know and do in AE, has come from U, young people over the whole world are now getting more interested in video effects and etc.

Thank U from the deepest corner of my heart. I owe U great thanks, as do many others.

Here's a little teaser for my current project, in witch I have greatly involved most of VideoCopilot's products.
