I don't know what's scarier: your anger about your untied shoe, or the thought of pink-eye zombies.

gr8 tut andrew. i once dated a girl that looks just like the effect you did. and dont worry about the problem with the ladies. i have it too sometimes. maybe we could go get drinks and hit on strippers. its ok, i'm married too.
January 7th, 2008 @ 2:43 am
grouse stuff Mr.K. Thankyou.

btw, I know there's no need to point out your products being used professinally, as thats the idea of the products in the 1st place, BUT, an awesome little 3D animation on CGsociety has used and CREDITED VCP for the use of the sound FX etc... thumbs up!

Also, the new Leukaemia Foundation Ad here in Oz is acutally your blood-cell tute [which I find a poor effort on behalf of that "artisit" - i use it as a loose term]

anyway, thanks again.

Andrew Kramer is back! Great and entertaining tutorial!
For making eye movements do I need a 3D eye or is it possible to do this in AE? Or will it be explained in the second part of the Eye Tutorial? O, wait a minute. I know, it's CC Sphere. Is it?

Please put out a newsletter. I don't even own any of the products you use but I still love to watch the tutorials. (Saving up the money for AE)

Will it be a part two of the eye tutorial? :O
Are you gonna try to make a empty eye-socket?:P Cus if you are planning to, that would be AWESOME! Although, I have never been dissapointed by any of your tuts!
January 7th, 2008 @ 8:51 am
mmmm... eye candy

January 7th, 2008 @ 8:51 am
Oh! I noticed something you've missed in this tutorial!

Please read this Andrew!

The highlight on the left eye, should not be on the eye at the whole time! If you see on the right one, it appears when you've almost at the top with your head!
January 7th, 2008 @ 8:56 am
Why do these awsome tuts always come out when I am super busy doing something else. Cant wait to try it.
January 7th, 2008 @ 9:35 am
Hello, my name is Chris and I am an AnKraholic.

Andrew I find I spend more time now re-watching your tutorials or searching Andrew Kramer inspired youtube entries than I do actually doing anything with them! It's even taken over Family Guy as my preferred source of prime-time entertainment. (the writers strike hasn't hurt mind you)

Andrew, since this is entirely your fault, to help me get off my creative arse, I'd like to propose a friendly competition inspired by "JELLE" in Holland who reportedly created a film using all if not most of your tutorials (Love to see a link by the way Jelle)...

Anyone interested, create a short film using techniques inspired by at least 5 of Andrew's tutorials and post it on with "Andrew Kramer 2008 over 5" in the description (so we can search for it) and also include the techniques you were inspired by and where they are in the film (in case you did such a good job it wasn't noticeable)

And Andrew if you are feeling particularly generous, maybe offer a DVD of choice to the entry that garners the highest YouTube rating by a particular date?

Just a thought.

I bow down before your talent! This one is the best yet! I am working on a action / horror movie and this was the perfect addition! Cheers!
January 7th, 2008 @ 11:48 am
Very nice tutorial. Very solid stuff. And perfect timing to.

I have started a film where I had the idea of doing the white eyes like I they did in Heroes and I think I found to solution in your tutorial! I think you very much for that because I wasn't sure how I would go about that. I was considering just key-framing a white solid over the eye and giving the eye a sort of glow effect but that would never turn out convincingly enough but your tutorial has definitely brought the effect down to earth and achievable. Thank you!

Andrew, you certainly have an eye for detail. Eye'll definitely find this useful for many situations. Eye know eye dont speak for meyeself when eye say you and your team are true pros.

January 7th, 2008 @ 1:32 pm
Sorry, EYE dont SEE much value in this tutorial.
January 7th, 2008 @ 1:54 pm
Hmm-- footage is 1280 x 400. Freaking beautiful quality. Hard for most of your fans to film something like that. Awesome tutorial though. =D

Hi andrew!
thank you for another espectacular tutorial

I wish you can teach us to make a similar effect like the x-men: the last stand
when cyclope open his eyes and a brigh red light apears!

January 8th, 2008 @ 10:19 am
Very good work. Congratulations!!!
January 8th, 2008 @ 12:37 pm
@ Rodrigo BRA: You should be able to that, now you know how to track eye motion..
By the way, great tutorial Andrew, I'll be spitting out some black eyeballs very soon :)
January 8th, 2008 @ 1:19 pm
A bit off topic: how did you light your base shot? It has a good glowing quality to it. Did you CC before doing the tut? What light did you use? just general outside ambience, a china ball, floros, etc.? I'm just curious.
January 8th, 2008 @ 5:59 pm
Nicely done. Can't wait for more!

January 11th, 2008 @ 9:31 pm
In case anyone is interested in a reference video, this is educational, if not slightly disturbing.
January 12th, 2008 @ 2:35 am
LOL. Andrew.... I'll give you a quarter if you duplicate that video with your method.
January 14th, 2008 @ 3:48 am
Amazing Tutorial.

And I learning AE from this site.Cause I am a newbie of AE.So ,lots of think behind the sense confused me.Such as How can I make a good building to look destroyed?
