In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create the effects where a camera goes inside a persons body; similar to the cool effect seen on House MD tuesdays on FOX

This is a comprehensive 3 Part tutorial:

I seriously dont know how you can make these tutorials for free (THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!). I would love to buy some more stuff. Just waiting for Riot Gear 2 (*cough*DSFX2*cough*)

I really like the zooming technique on the skin in this tutorial.

You've just made me buy Particular. You should get a commission! Although I must say, they're educational / non-profit discounts closed the deal for me! I'd get 3DS Max too if I wasn't a Mac guy. C4D for me.

This is a great tutorial, thanks!

Alright! I was playing around with the idea and here is a short clip I came up with.
It doesn't have the 3d models in it or anything. And I just used the plain old cc particle world. But, I added some ripple to the background and a fairly nice "dying" mask.

Nice Work . like always . beside buying new dvds i think we have to give andrew's comission from our earnings :D


i don't know if it is a right place to ask this , for making music video for singer or actors they put heavy make up on them , but sometimes they do skin retouch and softening digitally .
with photoshop and still image it's pretty easy in 100 ways like duplicating layer and adding mediacn cut or gussion blur then masking out eyes , hairs , lips and details , what about footage?

thanks andrew

Those were some amazing tutorials! I can't wait to figure out ways to implement that concept in future jobs. Because of your tutorial, I've taken on 3 Dimensions now.

I do have one question though. In my final render, a few cells randomly disappear or appear out of nowhere. Did I enter something wrong or am I possibly too close to the end of the particle dispersion (sp?)? Thanks.

October 2nd, 2007 @ 3:17 am
Wow nicee one..simple yet so powerful. Thanks alot Andrew!!

I was kinda playing with it ( i shud have saved it) but I put like a burnt to create the skin opening at the very end(cc burn? - not sure i have to double check it again) to transit it to the blood cells and it looked so convincing that I almost believe its some professional doing the job.
Power to aftereffects and also to 3dsmax, My 2 favorite software !!
October 2nd, 2007 @ 4:03 am
Awsome. Thanks a million Andrew!

Amazing ! You bring special effects to a new level using 3D integration.
You keep suprising me by the quality of each new tutorial, showing each time more and more advanced stuff and at the same time you don't need to be a pro of AE or 3DS to be able to understand it.

Have you ever think of creating Kramer VFX School ? ;)

Thanks for the sharing Andrew.

ps: No need to say that I have already purchase all your DVD and looking forward for the new products.

Hi Andrew great tutorials, I loved them, Just a quick question though, what kind of format do you shoot on to get it that wide?

Thans alot

Shaun
Jacob Dyer
October 2nd, 2007 @ 6:01 am
Shaun:

Andrew shoots with the JVC GY HD200, which shoots 720P HDV footage to mini-dv tapes. This means he is shooting 16:9 (wide screen). Hey may have added a bit of a mask to get even wider footage, but from memory, he was just using the footage at its original aspect ratio (16:9).

Hope that helps, and feel free to correct me Andrew or anyone.
Jacob.
shaun
October 2nd, 2007 @ 6:09 am
Thanks alot Jacob that helps. godIlove that true 16:9, I mean there are alot of cameras that claim toshoot 16:9 but they don't they just remove pixils i think and add a letter box.


thanks anyway
October 2nd, 2007 @ 7:16 am
Very Cool. I love House. Thank God it's Tuesday! It's on tonight!
Good Job Andrew. You'd make House smile.... well, he'd heckle you about spending too much time in front of a computer and how it bad for your health. But I loved all 3 Segments. Great JOB!

Tutorials that includes 3D-compositing is extremely interesting and fun to watch.

I would be the happiest person on earth if you'd like to make a tutorial for more traditional CG. For example how to include 3D-objects in a footage filmed on a regular street (or something other really ordinary) and how to deal with lights, shadows, blending and movement.

Absolutely fantastic!!

Stop whining about c4d tutorials and such people! Is for the best that Kramer uses the program he is most confortable with, so the tutorials and results are of the best quality! Its not so hard to understand what you should do in the other programs? "Make a mesh like this, give it a animation like this...".

Anyways, THANK YOU SO MUCH Kramer! :D

October 2nd, 2007 @ 11:02 pm
Hi Guys, to answear Russ's question the reason not many people use lightwave is because for a person starting off in the 3d world 3ds max is the way to go. The thing about lightwave 3d is that for beginners it doesn't offer much, the user interface is so complicated you would need hours and hours of tutorials just get firgure out how to navigate it. I was a former lightwave user and switched to max.In half an hour on max i had already began to add materials and make cool shapes and modify them, something that would have taken ages for a beginner in lightwave. It comes down to the fact that 3ds max is so dam user friendly plus there are hundreds of tutorials for 3dsmax so people can learn the program, lightwave does not have that, the only real lightwave tutorials are on it's own website and they are all complicated even there basic ones can get confusing. I'm sure for you it's all crystal clear but as a begginer lightwave is not the program of choice. Sorry for this long answear but I hope to let other 3d users know what to stay away from.

C4D is another great choice but like I say, more people are using 3ds max there for more tutorials and more help if ya get stuck.

October 2nd, 2007 @ 11:08 pm
At the moment i'm trying to add stuff to Andrews great bad green blood cell, i've been using 3ds max for about 6 month and have come come a long way but there's loads i dont know.

I wanted weird hair to grow out of the muated cell, so i added some hair but I can't get the stuff to move like it's in liquid, the hair just stays static so it looks too fake, if a hairy blood cell was moving the hair would react like it's in water , like tenticle kind of hair, I've never done much in reactor in 3dsmax so i'm not sure if that's the way to go but that's what i'm thinking.

Anyone got any ideas.

thanks

Thanks Mistic that really helped. cheers mate, one other question please, i've tried animating the hair using the cut length so i set two key frames to make it grow which works in the viewport but when i render there's no hair, also do you know how to make the hair various lengths, thay all seem to be the samke length is there any way to make them random sizes. thanks alot anyway

Andrew,
I am amazed that you haven’t been snapped up by some huge production company, or that you aren’t getting paid a few dollars for promoting the amazing AE.
Thank you for your talent and love of AE, these new medical tutorials were just what I needed and ill be using the principals in nearly all of my work from now on. Not only have you kept my interest in AE alive, you have also woke my mind to 3D prgms and I will be downloading a trial version of 3DS Max (If one exists).

As always keep up the fantastic work, if you see a camera crew and a bearded Englishman outside NY Public Library around Nov 11th, then pop up and say Hi.

Keep these amazing tutorials coming mate.

Mitch
October 4th, 2007 @ 3:19 am
Excellent tutorial, i have been doing freelance work for a little while now using 3ds max and after effects.

A question i would like to put to you if ever you get to reading this comment is this, How do you go about finding out what 2 effects will make a particular look ie the way you used noise and the glass effect to come up with the arteries?

Do you just sit and practice and accidentally come up with the effects sometimes or do you know After Effects that well that you alreaady know what should work?

Even if you don't comment, keep up the outstanding work, love the humour in your tutorials too.
October 4th, 2007 @ 5:41 am
This is my first try (red blood cells only):

Thanks Shaun for the info. I have been a LW user from the time I first thought to incorporate 3d in my pieces. There definitely is a more difficult learning curve in LW, and I certainly am not seasoned with it by any means. I mainly use it for some serious compositing, but I use Zaxwerks for some quick 3d titles, etc.

hmmm....I think I'll start my own LW free tutorial site...move over Kramer!

does anyone know how to set up a render farm with cs3. I've got 3 editing stations all networked and JUST THIS MORNING I found about render farms and what they do (I've been compositing with AE for 5 years). I'm running all PCs-2 xp & 1vista. One of the XP machines kinda acts like a server for the other two.

By the way, Andrew, is there a way to animate displacement maps in 3d and reflect light?(e.g. ripples in water reflecting sunlight whilst moving a camera around it)

Hey if anyone can help please let me know. I am capturing my HD 24p footage with the Eugenias tutorial. After I capture the footage it is 1440 x 1080 now when i import it into premiere the aspect corrects itself but it is 1920 x 1080. I want to edit in 1280 x720 but im not quite sure how to do this other than shrinking the video when im editing in 720p.

Please send me an email if you can help. I have noticed that Andrew uses 720p footage and i would like to because i really don't need to edit in 1080p. Please help :)

Ive asked on forums for making the cel in c4d.
Its very simle!
Take a torus and put an metaball on it. Set the Ring radius on about 500m.
You can change the segments aswell to make it ruffer.
Add a color and use bump and add noise. Change settings.
Then you get something similar.
5 min work.

http://www.heyhush.com/selected/paraiso_travel/

i have a question. in the various scenes are they precomped seperatly or are they one long stinken comp with thousands of layers?

oh zack just to let you know the book rotating to show the man are two clips those arnt together pause while blue tile is diagnle in scene you can see where to null the two scenes together. i think that might be one way how to do it.

Hello,

I am making a tut on how to use the built in tools from AE to make the same effect, so to the people at ET and others that dont want to use trapcode, this should be done with in the next 2 days. Keep an eye on my site at www.jmmc.biz for updates.

October 6th, 2007 @ 11:46 am
Great stuff!!! LOL, you know, lawyers aren't actually SUCH fine people, but they're OK :P You know, I don't have particular, but I actually got a pretty decent result with CC Particle World, expressions and a bit of luck ;)

Actually, to make the thing look right you can't move the camera in all angles, and I recreated the depth of field with several particle layers that, when the camera approaches them, blur out (with an expression) differently, depending on how close the layer is to the camera, although ALL particles blur out.

I'm actually looking forward a tut on how to create depth of field without a camera in *HINT* :P

October 6th, 2007 @ 12:04 pm
To Zach, Just change the "ANCHOR POINT" to the bottom of your comp, then rotate.

This is in Andrews "Basic Training" Tutorial "03. Animation"

I have been wanting to integrate the two, and just started learning Flash... and videocopilot was great for teaching me AE. Most of everything that I have seen for Flash has been simple little things that wern't interesting at all. I would love it if there were something similar for Flash. Thanks!

andrew and company,
great stuff, I really apperciate the time and effort you put forth putting these tutorials together, they are in my opinion the best and most accessible source of information on the web dealing in vfx. It is a tremendous resource and a tool that has helped me get into vfx school. thanks again.

quick question... could you use the "foam effect" to produce custom particles in a similar manner to that in which you used trapcode to to set up the blood particle system in the medical tutorial?
keep it salty,

I think I speak for everybody when I say that you are simply THE BEST source for the AE community. Most people would charge money for these high quality tutorials, and you explain it in a way that is so simple to understand.

All of your products are fantastic, and I can't wait for Evolution to come out.

Keep it up. :)

Connor.
