Clean Lighting with Element 3D V2
Here are a few experiments created in Element 3D V2 with simple lighting and Ambient Occlusion. In these examples I’m using the Ray Traced AO which is a bit slower but creates very nice results. The other important setting I like to use is called “Lighting Influence” under the Physical Environment. This setting helps blend the […]

Dear Andrew,

As you reach sexagennialth tutorial, I can't help but realize the similarities between vc-pilot and a perfect woman, always there when I need her, gets wiser with age, costs money in order to get the best products, and well, thats were the similarities end, you see, unlike a woman, vc-pilot gets better looking with age... strange. Well I have to go watch the last tutorial another 3/4 times in order to completely understand the concepts. It'll probably be up all night.......

Anyways I'll keep in touch thank you again

Love the tutorial!!!! I love how there is always something so usefull in each of Andrews tutorials. I mean regeneration is a awsome tutorial in itself but I think the tracking trick where you can track your footage better was so helpful. Thanks Andrew. Guys check this out, I just finished it last night.

Hey Andrew!

Of course every Simpsons fan knows not to feed the bears :)

But I've got to tell you, that you are _at least_ as funny as the Simpsons.
I've just nearly spit out my cornflakes over they keyboard as I've heard that you already ate your turkey a few days ago ;0) .

@Victor: I know that he doesn't show us screenshots to every tutorial, but i think it is a good idea because so we could tell him what we want^^
And... I mean Mr Kramer is an AFX God, but maybe one of us has an good idea which Andrew likes too and so he can add it to his tutorial=)

Awsome tutorial. The result looks great, the technics is very intresting and I think I will have to watch the tutorial a few more time to understand all the stuff you teached us here.

The end was unexpected, and really cool. Sam is 50% human, 50% robot and 100% actor :)

It's going to be very exciting and funny to play around with all theses new technics learned in this 60th tutorial.

Thanks for the sharing Andrew

Great tutorial! The tip with tracking was very helpful. I didn't know that. Thank you, Andrew.
I watched a couple of episodes of The Simpsons, but I never heard the "Do not feed the bears" line. But I'm not a Simpsons geek as you are, Andrew. :P

PS: Dada dam dadam... Dada dam dadam... As I've already said, Sam would be a great Terminator.

PPS: Futurama rules. I have all seasons on DVD. It's better than Simpsons. :-D
