New Site Features Coming Soon

In addition to the new header graphic, my team and I are working on adding several new features to the site including a new button! We’re also working on making the tutorial section more exciting with better thumbnails and graphics (no flash, don’t worry).

We are back finishing up the Special Edition Tutorial DVD with tons of new behind-the-scenes videos and features. But we are also working on releasing another new product next month…
ahh, what the heck, It’s TWITCH! (Release date TBA)

Plus, Part 1 of the Eye Replacement tutorial should be out on Monday or Tuesday with the part 2 later in the week.

As you can see we are very busy, just because we don’t post everyday doesn’t mean we’re not working hard. Keep up the patience and great content will continue to flow.

And some of you killed the sandpaper joke.
Let us never speak of it again.

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. […]
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 […]
My After Effects World Conference Visit
I’m excited to tell you that I had a blast at this years After Effects World conference and met a lot of great people. I was also given an opportunity to do a keynote presentation which is much different than sitting behind a computer and demonstrating software. I talked about what motivates me, personal challenges […]
Element 3D V2: New Specular Model!
Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]

On the subject of new site features I think you should a request section for tutorials. as you have a lot of amazing stuff but theres some you dont have that I would love to see. A few in particular are the effects that smallvile has done ex.super speed, also maybe some force powers.

Thanks,

Probably not the right place to ask this question, but I cant find the advertisement here anymore. On one of the pages there was a plugin that Andrew was talking about that was made by a friend of his that simulated smoke. Does anyone know what that was or have the link. There was a link on the news page at one point but it is gone now.

Thanks for any info.

40 bucks is a lot of money? You're kidding right?
Last month I updated some TDM plugins for my Pro Tools HD rig, for the bargain price of 4500 Euro...
40 bucks is NOTHING. One little job because of it is all it takes... and the rest is profit.
So ... that being said... please send NFR copies to my address. Thank-ya-verry-much! :D

I thing including new section will be a great idea. A section about coworking with 3d programs such as 3dmax. Tutorials and basic techniques like in the tutorial with the blood cells. The tutorial was great, and the outcomming was one of the best accomplishments in the content base.

I thing a new section like this will be very helpfull to all, including me :)

Andrew, how about adding a few more presets. I always click on the button hoping for a new addition. After 300.000 clicks I am calling it quites. LOL look forward to it all

Why not 37.28 or 39.96? Its a pattern I've noticed in pricing... but you can do what you want... you're Andrew Kramer!!! haha...

Keep up the great work everyone and I'll see you all tomorrow or Tuesday, or whenever Andrew finishes up the tutorial to make us all look possessed.

I never do doubt you or your team.. I think part of the excitment is checking the site daily to see if there is an update..

ONLY $39!!!

Why so cheap? Gosh I was thinking $59-79..

Thank you for letting us know what is coming up next cause that helps me budget for this kind of stuff.. I always like being one of the first to get your products..

PS. I just finished a project that used evolution.. And lots of it.. Some of those textures in evolution are just as good and an excellent adition to riotgear!

Thanks andrew..

Good to hear about the shipment to Norway :) I should buy several of your products if I get money sometime, I should really get a job.. I've seen pretty much of the products already, I know a guy who owns them, they are FANTASTIC!

But will you make a "shattering effect" tutorial for 3DS Max or something later? I want to know how so simulate thing that break, it have so much possibilities! (was that written correct?)

Anyways, if shattered glass is a part of the new header, I would most likely love it!

Hey, a final say in reference to the sandpaper;
I knew a guy who once had poison ivy on the brain and the only way he can scratch it is when he thought of sandpaper.

Yeah, go scratch and twitch - i know.
