Apparently this blog show wouldn’t be complete without a shot of my Elevator Shaft. I don’t want to say too much yet, but a silly idea came up and we wanted to include a shot of an Elevator! So the episode is taking a little longer to complete.  Why am I always waiting on Elevators!!!? This scene was created […]

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
