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 talked about what motivates me, personal challenges […]
Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]
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. […]

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?
thnx!

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!

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!!

For the camera movement. Watch the advanced camera tutorial. Just parent a 3D Null to a camera and rotate the Null.

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

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. Again...you're great. tks.

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'

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
