That looks really cool. The glow and the particles are amazing. Andrew, you are the best! Thank you for the tutorial.

@ Dustin James: Now there is a lack of a 3D Tutorial. :-)

Hey Andrew check this out

They used one of your tutorial its the last part when it says “Jumper”
January 25th, 2008 @ 11:44 pm
Looks great! But this tutorial is one of this that loads first 1-2 min and after that stops :(
January 26th, 2008 @ 12:22 am
Actually, when Andrew said "Fill color", I thought he was going to say "Phil Collins". That could make a great joke for another tutorial, uh? Like "Do you know this awesome guy, Phil Color?"…

Never mind, I'm already gone :P
January 26th, 2008 @ 3:59 am
Andrew... YOU ROCK DUDE!!!!..
January 26th, 2008 @ 5:00 am
Very cool way to show other possibilities of using your products (Evolution & Riot gear in this case). I think you should be doing more stuff like this, I mean tutorials with more usage of your products. (it is just my opinion, which may not be the best) Beside that you're gr8 keep the flag flyin'
January 26th, 2008 @ 5:50 am
Nice and smooth!

i think this clip uses some Evolution elements too...
January 26th, 2008 @ 8:34 am
i really like the kalida background. gives it a nice touch.
January 26th, 2008 @ 11:10 am
Hy Andrew, tanks for the tutorials, you're great. I'm begginer in afterfx, but whit your help people think i'm pro...:)
I have a question, in your evolution product video, how do you do the transitions? It's another scene or you change the ambient light (from hot red to cold blue after a light green...) and work in just one 3D scene? It's amazing.
Best regards from Brazil. Sorry about my poor english.'re great. tks.
January 26th, 2008 @ 4:57 pm
Love all your tutorials. They're very useful and really help me gain more control over After Effects. You deserve some type of award, or cake, or something. haha

January 27th, 2008 @ 10:13 am

January 27th, 2008 @ 2:27 pm
Hey. Andrew,

January 27th, 2008 @ 2:53 pm
nice nice :)

the picture made it look simple but the when i saw the preview in tutorial, the smooth 3D motions in after effects almost made me flip!

Andrew, I recently bought a bundle with Evolution, Sound FX, and Riot Gear, and all I gotta say is the tutorials included are funnier than helll!!! Thanks a bunch!
January 28th, 2008 @ 3:52 am
Andrew you are a legend, been watching your tuts for few months now, this is just another fine example of your excellent work. I use AE quite a lot, and youve inspired me to use it in so many great ways. Keep up the good work matey.

this is great! how do you get these ideas?

by the way, i saw this on youtube, i hope the link will work
if you dont like german hiphop, be warned and turn of your sound ;)

look at the smoke in the background!!! ;)

some days ago i saw a video which uses elements out of your "reflection tutorial", but i forgot the name...

so, keep up the good work andrew! you see, your the very best!

so sorry for my bad english :P im still going to school and i come from germany

so far greets

January 28th, 2008 @ 1:00 pm
Im usually to busy to sit and watch these as they come out, i remember a while ago a mention about a "downloadable tutotial" area??? any chance of thowing them up for download?? I also understand that they get packaged with some of the dvds too.


January 28th, 2008 @ 11:02 pm
woaho!! SWEET. seriusly I absolutely love it. nice work.
January 29th, 2008 @ 8:11 am
Andrew Kramer makes $300,000 a year.. well at least he should :-] haha, keep it up!

I love the tut but you didnt cover the camera movement, when i do it it always gets messed up. please discuss this.
January 29th, 2008 @ 10:08 am
Great tutorial and I love evolution!
January 29th, 2008 @ 1:37 pm
For the camera movement. Watch the advanced camera tutorial. Just parent a 3D Null to a camera and rotate the Null.
SPC Goodwin
January 29th, 2008 @ 2:31 pm
ok thank you.. verry hepful. by the way i dont know if you got the email i sent you, but i received the media, and i just wanted to say thank you very much. evolution is an awsome product. and it looks very professional. keep up the good work
January 29th, 2008 @ 9:03 pm
OMG! orgasm alá AE! ;)
January 31st, 2008 @ 12:45 pm
Dig you giving little tips and ideas on using the Riot Gear and Evolution stuff. It's good for getting the gears going and can't hurt business!
February 4th, 2008 @ 3:20 am
Hi Andrew, Another great tutorial, One question about vignetting that you use often in tutorials. When I try to vignet some stuff, I often get some awfull Banding. Is there a way around this or what can you do to reduce or eliminate this?
keep up your good work!!
February 7th, 2008 @ 2:44 pm
I did your tutorial, and everything worked great. I parented a camera to a null object so i could swing it around the logo 360degrees. Now the particles seem to orbit around the logo instead of 'emitting' from it. I didn't toggle 3d layer or anything and they aren't parented to anything. Not sure what to do. Otherwise the tutorial was fantastic!
February 8th, 2008 @ 10:33 am
HI man i love your tuts man .. you explane so well .ok the real reason 4 me to write is ..i have just installed the CS3 version of after effects BUT i dont have the CC Particle world plug-in so can you tell me where the hell can i download it or can some one send it to me cuz i realllly need it . OK 10x 4 the tutorials i learned a lot 4rom you 4 lets see -- 2 days only .

peace man
Cool one
February 12th, 2008 @ 3:48 am

Hahah, I went to a huge 7 - 8,000 people conference last week and saw this very tutorial used. Plenty of Evolution / Riot Gear all around as well. Heheheh.<3

Great job:D
March 27th, 2008 @ 12:29 pm
Hey Andrew!
i've a question: i've made a movie in AE, but I can't seem to find the right exporting settings. I want my movie to be able to play at a rather large size, and not be too large as a file. can this be done as .AVI?
August 28th, 2010 @ 6:54 pm
Very nice thank you for the tutorial!
November 28th, 2010 @ 4:17 pm
