Fantastic product!!! My question is how can we reduce the elements in size from HD to Web size. I'm new to AE, learning as I go... Thanks a bunch!

This is the video clip for a bulgarian song in Eurovision 2008. The Song is good, but my point is, that almost everywhere we can see "Evolution", which is Cool ;) And the creators of this video made it look so great thanks to this product. Evolution can make every boring video look awsome :)

Hey there!

Just watched this music videoclip that makes heavy use of the Evolution elements. Mostly the "flourishes" can be seen, but I also spotted some of the "arrows" and the "extensions".

I bought many of your training materials and I have learn a lot from it, either technically or artistically, two thumbs up!! Your Evolution series... just amazing, I have inspired by those tutorials, especially from my most recent works!! I think every AFX artist should take a look on these tutorials!! Keep up good works and please bring more for us!! Thank you.

Hi andrew!
I'm not sure but I do believe that they have used evolution on the Sweeney Todd Website. http://www.sweeneytoddmovie.com/

Check out the different players on the site, looking really good, and specially thanks to you:) Great product AK!

Today I made my first CoPilot purchases.

I have to tell you... I'm thrilled with the professional quality.

However, I guess I wasn't clear about what's in the product packs.
I was expecting to find an After Effects lesson or two on how to do the reveal masks that the Evolution MOV files were made with.
Maybe it's on the disks and I haven't found it yet.
If I have it in my purchase, could someone point me to it ?

On the other hand, if it's not, please understand that I'm still completely satisfied with what I have here.

Having the pre-rendered MOV files that I won't have to do myself is very convenient and moves me forward on my current project faster in the short term anyway.

In the long term, I'd still like to master the After Effects animation technique for myself. Do you have another product set that covers that issue?
7 years ago
I'm guessing nobody will read this, but I just bought Evolution and I not only love the project, but I made the money that I spent on it back the same day that I bought it and used it! This product is definitely worth it's weight in gold!

Yo Andrew, downloaded and loving evolution. A quick yes or no question if you can: I am trying to do a combined evolution/designer sound F/X motion graphic. I am creating a shatter effect which then reveals behind it a composition I created with evolution, my question is:

Is it possible to have a lens flare behind the shatter which spills out past the shards somewhat like a volumetric light? This is so it appears to be flooding out past the shards and they are casting shadows in this light as they fall. Is this possible in After Effects or only feasible in a 3D program such as 3DSMax? I want to have the evolution items with Shine on them but this shine spills past the particles as opposed to being in a flat x,y plane behind the shatter.

Thanks for any comment.

Hi Andrew,

Just wondering where you got the designs for Evo from?

I had the Evolution style idea a while ago (as Im sure many others did) I found some really nice floral vectors on Stock Exchange and I emailed people to ask permission to animate there designs and sell them to others, but I never got any replies.

Did you get someone you know to design them for your collection?

PS. free music here: www.freeplaymusic.com

PPS. pro sound FX here: www.videocopilot.net

For McLovin:

You should buy Designer Sound FX , because 1 of the tutorials include in that DVD explains how Mr. Andrew makes his promos, therefore if you want to know how he base his promos. you should get the DVD.
he'll teach you if he makes the score first, or the actual animation then the score

There seems to be a few requests for info concerning sound. Perhaps a post by either andrew, one of the other team members of videocopilot, or someone in the industry giving tips or sources for good (even though probably expensive) royalty free music would be appropriate. I know personally i would love to get my hands on some chants similar to those from the riot gear and evolution trailers. Make sure you buy Designer Sound FX before going anywhere else though, i can tell you from personal experience that its great not only for its price:quality ratio but also when you just starting out creating soundtracks to your work. Also, Evo is great...layering them in 3d space is a wicked effect.

Thanks for all the hard work VC,

Hey guys,

Has anyone ever used the Photoshop CS3 animation yet? You can import MOV. files into photoshop and go to (windows>animation) and you will see a very familiar animation timeline appear at the bottom.

You can render animations straight out of photoshop to most any format....

Thinklayer styles + photoshop filters + evolution animations..... Using the bevel layer style with these is phenominal... also try converting these animations to paths.... then convert to stroke path... then applying a glow layer style...

These are great for photoshop users with CS3 extended.... :D

besides the fact that Andrew is running an Intel Core 2 Duo 6800 Extreme Processor (http://www.videocopilot.net/contact.html).

In EvolutioN he shows a quick fix to help render-previews faster than normal.

Tutorial 04. Cool Design @ 10:10.

and Eldee is right too; Andrew does edit the tutorials when he renders, but for the most part, I do not detect to much editing of these tutorials packaged with EvolutioN.

You can lower the virtual ram setting in AE and put atleast 2gigs of ram ...that works ok . having issues w open gl myself - will only load w/ ae 7 pro but not on latest version of ae.
Kris

Casko,

I believe you, you got a good pc but care to show us details about it? Dont get me wrong, if your saying that your AE is still slow.

Check your memory ram. To able to run the AE smooth workflow, you need a requirement at least 2gig of memory ram.

If you have less than 1gig ram then it is not going to work fast.

AE takes lots of memory ram. Andrew might have like 6 gig of ram or something :)

The best thing about VC's products is that they all work together.. If you think that evolution is all that you need... think again.

Riot Gear has more textures as well as other elements that can work with evolution... VC allows us VFX artists to play more with our imagination that waisting precious time on creating these different design elements..

Some people might argue that these elements are on in style right now.. but I say with twister and your imagination, you create you're own style.

+ for you younger guys out there who do not have the cash flow yet, X-mas is coming and it is well worth a measly $95 not just for VC's hard work, but for the amount of time you can save to make your projects look more professional. Probably more professional than the skill level you're at. (me included in that)

Does anyone here really think that Andrew does all of this by himself!?!?! What about Thanking the other people involved in the making of this web site, the demos, tutorials, support and products! Please People... be nice but share the thanks around with the whole team at Videocopilot dot net. A lot of hard work went into this latest Project.

Great job on ... Evolution! Andrew, Jeff, Mark, Tino, Sam, Bobby, Matt, Bill, George, Tina, Jennifer, Zak, Liz, Tom, Scott, Betty, Sue, Sonny and Mango.

did I miss anyone.. hee hee

Seriously... Superb JOB! Everyone!

Scott makes a valid point, Maybe Andrew could break down the next product so we may choose what elements we want to purchase, I have seen many sites do this,

I know ATM I can't afford this product, but.. I would purchase individual elements
If I could.

Maybe make it for download only, Minimum $35.00 order, Give each element a price tag, say out of 170 design elements each element would coast .65 Cents, and for all orders $35.00 or more you get Twister Free!

Do the math, .65 cents times 170 elements = $110.50 thats $15.00 more than the whole product.

Just a thought!

How long before we see these elements on network tv??? My guess is within the next few weeks.

If i don't get this for christmas or my birthday (only 5 days apart) i will be ordering it shortly after.

To all those thinking of ordering this product, do.

With very little effort, you can get something to look extraordinary. With a lot of effort, you can use this product as a launching pad to start earning yourself some money.

The best way to use Evolution isn't necessarily on its own (although, as Andrew has proved, you certainly can do so very successfully - there are endless variations to be exhausted), but in conjunction with other design elements unique to your project, a creative imagination and some comfortable underwear. Then you'll be laughing.

95 bucks is a steal. Most production houses would charge a few hundred dollars for half this material.

Thanks Kramer and co.

Don't know who Andre is referring to two comments up (Mr. Aponso), but I couldn't agree more. I spent close to $400 on vector packs and a few animated flourishes...Evolution could easily sell for way more. I don't know if having a low price point is for marketing purposes or just because Andrew really cares about this community -- either way, it's helped so many artists such as myself and I truly appreciate and thank him for it.

Mr. Aponso, you are joking, right?

Can you imagine how much work Andrew put into this product? The promovideo alone took 3 days to create. I think the price is reasonable and fair. Nobody force you to buy it. Andrew created 50+ free tutorials and I think the last thing to thank him, is to buy his great products and you can use / need them.

These DVD's seem so amazing and Evolution will make them even greater. The tutorial section has convinced me to buy the whole collection. The price for the whole collection is $350 but is it cheaper if I download it. I have a 20mb connection so bandwidth isn't an issue. Just want to get the price down a little :D

Thanks for any info
