Twitch Now Available!

UPDATE: Things on the server seem to be going good now. Download speeds are looking good. Remember if you need help downloading, just email us at support. Thanks!

Our long awaited plug-in Twitch, is now available.

I tell you what, those last few hours of work really get you. This project was a real team effort and I want to thank everyone on my team for their outstanding work day in and day out.

And of course, we wouldn’t be able to do these kind of amazing projects without the support and encouragement from this great community, so thanks again!

March 10th, 2008 @ 6:31 am
Not trying to be offensive here, but what's in the product that you can't do in After Effects with a few simple keyframes?
March 10th, 2008 @ 6:35 am
Hi! Sorry for the stupid question, it's not about Twitch... but does anyone know what is that song in the "Andrew's Reel"? ( )
Please someone tell me, I really need to know :)) THX

And of course, you're great Andrew, keep up the good work!

March 10th, 2008 @ 6:47 am
I plan on getting Twitch sometime this week. i'm sure your poor server will be cooled down by then. I guess server overload from popular demand of your product is a good problem to have.

Quick Question: will this work in higher bit depth than just 8? that way you can get that cool-ass HDR motion blur lighting like you showed in one of your tutorials?

BTW: How come you haven't accepted my MySpace friend request? I'm not a bad guy. I promise I'll never ask you to buy a ring tone, or join a dating site. heh

March 10th, 2008 @ 6:56 am
Can someone answer me. I want to buy the products (Evolution, Twitch, Riot Gear and Sound) on a DVD but I live in Croatia and I don't know if can get it...
Or location isn't a problem???

March 10th, 2008 @ 7:02 am
I made the mistake of trying to buy the new NIN the day it came out and it was a cluster.

I'll wait.
March 10th, 2008 @ 7:16 am
You're the man, Andrew. Working my way through the tutorials now. Excellent stuff.
March 10th, 2008 @ 7:17 am
I have purchase the product and didnt download yet, I will be downloading late. Good thing I am not counted for being the cost of traffic. Ive waited for this. Thank you andrew for great product and so the team of
March 10th, 2008 @ 7:23 am
Hey Andrew,

I was just wondering if you had used a 3d program to create your Twitch promo, or was that done completely in AE.


March 10th, 2008 @ 7:34 am
Just worked with twitch a little......awesome!! a must have
March 10th, 2008 @ 7:38 am
Andrew Kramer and team, thanks for this plugin, just bought it, I really needed something like this to finish a product for school.

Keep on the good work, and thanks again.
March 10th, 2008 @ 7:57 am
Bought it... Andrew, it's just awesome! Thanks alot for your work. Greets from Germany!

March 10th, 2008 @ 9:05 am
Great Product!
I just purchased and I love it.

When viewing the tutorials, I noticed there wasn't a tutorial gallery page like the one in the evolution product.
March 10th, 2008 @ 9:13 am
uhh awesome pluginn
March 10th, 2008 @ 9:21 am
Looking forward to getting seizures soon.. and then revive to use this plug in

I need to deposit some money later and buy this product later..
Popular demand on servers could mean trouble, so im waiting till it clears..
Looking forward to using this plug in though.. Man!
March 10th, 2008 @ 9:30 am
Yes... I'm going to wait a bit for the orders to calm down, then I'm going to order. This product looks awesome. I can't wait.

I have a bunch of upcoming films/ads I can DEFINITELY use this on!

Thanks, Andrew!

also thnx for the name of the song..

Woohoo! Thanks Andrew. Will add it to the collection to keep the library complete :)

March 10th, 2008 @ 9:53 am
hey this is like way off topic but i was wondering...

we should have our own videocopilot forums

anyone think its a good idea?
March 10th, 2008 @ 10:03 am
Hey Andrew. I'm 17 years old and I go to the Aiken County Career and Technology Center and I work with this program everyday. Your tutorials are amazing. You are like a genius when it comes down to it. If I had to choose someone out of this world to meet, it would be you. I have just learned so much from all of this. Thanks for all the help, keep the tutorials coming, and great job with Twitch.

March 10th, 2008 @ 10:08 am
Can't wait to get it. I'll wait till the server heals. I just entered a commercial contest here in Detroit and you would not believe how many disciples you have here! If I saw one more recycled "fancy title plate tutorial" I was gonna quit and take up needlepoint. If you do a youtube search for "89x in 30 seconds" you'll find quite a loyal following fully equiped with Evolution and everything!
March 10th, 2008 @ 10:15 am
Hey great work Andrew,

You know, i was gonna release this same plug-in but you beat me to it. I guess geniuses think alike all the time.

Lol, no seriously, I think ima order it tonight

Great work
March 10th, 2008 @ 10:31 am
From what i hear its already being worked on.

David Stepus
March 10th, 2008 @ 10:33 am
ohhh ok

and who told u its being worked on if you don't mind me asking =s
March 10th, 2008 @ 10:36 am
Hi Andrew! Just bought and downloaded with no problems whatso ever! Just starting to watch the tutorials and I must say looks like a plugin I will be using a hell of a lot! How many plugins are on the market for After Effects where the creator goes through every single control in the plugin? And show the many many uses it can be used for? Fantastic package! And I'll mention it where ever I can!
March 10th, 2008 @ 10:37 am
Awesome, I'm downloading as I type!!!
James Price
March 10th, 2008 @ 10:43 am

March 10th, 2008 @ 11:12 am
downloading now, very slow speeds tho =(
March 10th, 2008 @ 11:15 am
Andrew... JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME!!! I was having to key-frame like a madman... now I can make my deadline and not get shot. TWITCH rocks! Thanks!
March 10th, 2008 @ 11:19 am
what kind of speeds jeff?
March 10th, 2008 @ 11:34 am
i saw it, i paypaled it and finally i got it !!! this plugin will twitch my life ;-). again, great stuff, andrew !
March 10th, 2008 @ 11:38 am
I just bought it this mornig. I'll try to download it when I get back from work. I can't wait to try this out on this project I'm working on. I was mentally prepared to do some tedious title animations and transition. Twitch will save me a lot of time.
March 10th, 2008 @ 11:42 am
I am so getting this later today. I wanna dig into this. VC products are probably one of the few things I actually cant wait to check out. Its like Xmas all over again.

Thanks Andrew for all the great work you put into these, and really, the great price
that you are putting these out for. Awesome.
March 10th, 2008 @ 12:01 pm
Its' GREAT!! :-)
March 10th, 2008 @ 12:01 pm
WOW! This plugin should cost hundreds of dollars, Do you know what you have here? Tony Scott has been paying editors to do this stuff the hard way. Amazing, and even more amazing you have no idea what you have done selling this thing so cheap, crazynessss.

Thank you,

March 10th, 2008 @ 12:06 pm
I'm so pumped! I was up at 1am this morning hoping it'd be here. Unfortunately, I had to wait until now to buy it.

Thanks Andrew for all the work you've done!

Choukran (it means "thanx' " in arabian) for all your work... You're an inspiration to me...

take care and again much thanx' to You...

March 10th, 2008 @ 12:40 pm
So excited to have this plug-in.

Bought and downloaded with out issue, but have yet to receive the license key.

No problem waiting if this is a server problem as it is first day -- just curious if others have received theirs?
March 10th, 2008 @ 12:52 pm
I thought the tutorial DVD would be released at the same time twitch was being released?
March 10th, 2008 @ 12:56 pm
Big big complement to all you guys at Videocopilot for this great new Plugin!!!!

March 10th, 2008 @ 12:58 pm
Luckely I was one of the first :D I had no trouble downloading. Everything works fine. Great plugin. Thx
March 10th, 2008 @ 1:01 pm
Hey Andrew,
The purchased just now Twitch is responsible for some sleepless nights ahead!
It's midnight here in Moscow and I guess this awesome release will keep me busy and warm in this cold city til morning.
So can't write anymore, Twitching is on the way!
Thank you, Andrew

PS. Btw, the "" file is missing in the package, where can I find it?
March 10th, 2008 @ 1:15 pm

March 10th, 2008 @ 1:30 pm
Will it work in PPro CS2?
March 10th, 2008 @ 1:41 pm
so we are not getting the dvd ? why only download?
March 10th, 2008 @ 1:44 pm
When is the tutorial DVD going to come out??? Will it include the After Effects Basic Training?
March 10th, 2008 @ 2:00 pm
Great tool! I just tested it for the last 90 minutes and its worth every (euro)cent! I Love it, its a real time saver.

Thank you videocopilot Team!!!
March 10th, 2008 @ 2:04 pm
Hey Derek, Andrew said the following to me regarding PPro CS2:

"We did some testing and for some reason there were issues that we could not resolve. We were hoping to make it work with CS2 but there were too many problems with the API so we do recommend CS3."

It appears to work for me in CS2 but obviously Andrew wouldnt say this if something isnt right i just havent encountered the issues yet..

But anyway fantastic product Andrew, well worth the purchase!! Thanks alot dude keep up the great work

March 10th, 2008 @ 2:20 pm
can somebody leave a feedback on this product (Twitch) is it useful & worth while getting!! the promo looks good!! does the inclided tutorials cover the making of the promo!!
March 10th, 2008 @ 2:36 pm
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I have enough for it!!!!!!!! I want it!!!!
March 10th, 2008 @ 2:50 pm
Hey, Nice Product, If you guys can remeber a while back Andrew put a video up of Richard Hammond presents Bloody Omaha (The Graphics)

I've made my own war scene check it out :D

it was made with only two people me and a friend of mine.
March 10th, 2008 @ 4:40 pm
Doctor Jones the tutorials cover the making of the promo plus "other bonus features" Its a very powerful plugin and I can really see where the time and effort has gone into the making of it. There is nothing ive seen that in the plugin market that touches this very very versatile plus its a 32bpc gem! For the money its well worth getting and im sure Andrew could have priced it well worth more than the price stated!
March 10th, 2008 @ 5:39 pm
Awesome, Checking out the trailer now!
March 10th, 2008 @ 6:03 pm
Dude! I just tried out the TWITCH plug-in on some footage, What a great "ORIGINAL" plug-in!
Thanx sooo much ! Looking forward to the Enhanced DVD you are working on.

Keep it coming!
March 10th, 2008 @ 6:16 pm
WOW finally no offense I really need this so glad you guys released it just in time for my project,Man you guys rule the web I maybe check your website 5 to 6 rimes a day hands down the best crew ever. forever

Cool! Can't buy it right now. But maybe one day!
March 10th, 2008 @ 9:02 pm
I wasn't that excited about this plugin the first time you mentioned it. It looked like an advanced wiggler. But after checking out the demos I'm sold. Have been playing around with it for the past few minutes and this is definately one of my favourites.
March 10th, 2008 @ 10:48 pm
this is the film we working on and the RED camera we using.
March 11th, 2008 @ 12:28 am
should have enough money by the end of the month, this will help with my current film
March 11th, 2008 @ 1:21 am
Hi Andrew.

How do you make the living wires in the twitch video?
March 11th, 2008 @ 2:42 am
WOW, Twitch is everything I hoped it would be and more!! Awesome product!!
March 11th, 2008 @ 3:15 am
Hi Andrew,

Many thanks for another great product!!!!

Hey Andrew....I was looking at the RGB Split Function an I had a question/thought/idea....haha....would you be able to make footage actually 3D if you split the Red and Blue Channels in a certain way using layers and such to make foreground closer and background far away? Just make the split larger for close up and closer together for far away? I could be completly wrong...but if thats the just got another effect.....and selling point!!!

March 11th, 2008 @ 11:47 am
Wait a sec... $7 for shipping? It's download only right?
March 11th, 2008 @ 11:49 am
is it possible to use the RGB split function but have three different colors, something that would work better with the comp? or are you stuck with red, green, and blue?
March 11th, 2008 @ 11:51 am
Just select downloadable instead, if you accidentally forget to change the delivery option our processing team will make the change before charging. This delivery option is just our default.
March 11th, 2008 @ 12:00 pm
The RGB split is simply using the actual RGB channels from the image so the color information is set by what is available. Now if you want to make the colors different you can try using the Color Operator and tint the result.
March 11th, 2008 @ 12:14 pm
Oh! Ok, thanks Andrew! Order sent!
March 11th, 2008 @ 12:29 pm

Keep up the good work guys ! You rocks !

Justin Mosley
March 11th, 2008 @ 12:34 pm
Got the TWITCH plug-in last night!!! BRILLIANT! I love that you encourage people to make the plugin work uniquely for each project by giving us complete control over each individual behavior! I'm glad to see that the default settings are broad...
The thing that bothers me most is when I see videos on youtube using the EXACT program files created by you (Andrew), only changing minor properties like the text to make it their own. I know it doesn't bother you much... but it sucks to see others abusing your gifts. I'm entering a short film into a film festival (DFWindie Film Festival) and you can bet your ass I'm putting in the special thanks! Thanks Andrew!

hi andrew i just the twitch product and i love it i will check it now.......thnxx for the hard work u put in it..........greetings from holland
March 11th, 2008 @ 2:23 pm
@nisse: that's the watermark. you need to put your twitch keyfile in the same folder as your plug in to remove it.

@matt: best video EVER.

must admit i had my doubts about twitch. however, i re-created a title sequence originally done with Tinderbox and twitch made it happen a bazillion times faster. this is a badass little plug-in. well done, and excellent customer service as well.

money well spent!
March 11th, 2008 @ 2:34 pm
Re Nisse: Did you place the keyfile KEYFILE in the "Twitch Plug-in" directory next to the actual TWITCH plug-in?
March 11th, 2008 @ 2:50 pm
nisse, email support for help, as you can see Andrew isn't on the Blog that much
March 11th, 2008 @ 3:49 pm
Andrew and team,

Bought, installed and ...WOW...!

THIS is the edgey, urban angst, trancendental panic look everybody on my client list is asking for!

Between you and Zax Dow, you guys are making me look like a regular Video Geneyus !!!

I would have paid $200 for this one!

(Stop picking on Sam)
March 11th, 2008 @ 4:44 pm
Seriously 200$ is too much money for some of us, 45$ is just perfect,
Thanks Videocopilot team
March 11th, 2008 @ 5:27 pm
I'm putting twitch to great use already! its amazing!
March 11th, 2008 @ 8:34 pm
Love the plug-in. It really simplifies doing this effect which is great. Very good job.
March 11th, 2008 @ 8:42 pm
I have a new intel mac and i was wondering when you may develop twitch to be a used on these types of computers because i cant wait to get this!
March 11th, 2008 @ 8:46 pm
Twitch works with Intel Macs!
March 11th, 2008 @ 8:48 pm
so does it come as a .plugin or .aex?
March 11th, 2008 @ 9:22 pm
The Mac version is .plugin the PC version is .aex
Carlos Crooks
March 11th, 2008 @ 9:46 pm
nd great pricing on the product!
Thanks for looking out for the poor college kids =D
March 11th, 2008 @ 10:03 pm
Thanks for not charging $200 Andrew! ( I would not be playing with it if you had)
Price was just right!
Thanks for another great product.

March 11th, 2008 @ 11:18 pm
I finally got some time to check out the plug-in and I've watched the tutorials and I'm getting resady to start TWITCH-ing.

I think the "DeathMan" title was a preview of the film Andrew is making with Sam and friends (HMMMM!)
Look at the tutorials and it will give you all the clues you need.
Just something to think about.

Can't wait to see it.

Thanks for the inspiration.
March 11th, 2008 @ 11:28 pm
Just a reminder to customers, there are 2 versions of the plug-in available, one is for Windows and the other for Mac. They are both available when you log-in.
March 11th, 2008 @ 11:57 pm
well bloody done man, i love this plug in... and thanks for the quick reply to my e-mail, it was nearly instantaneous
March 12th, 2008 @ 12:04 am
there should be third that just has the plug in and nothing else! :p
Rob van der Spank
March 12th, 2008 @ 12:13 am
My wife is pregnant and we already decided to call it TWITCH :)

Serious, what a great plug, it's so easy to make beautiful effects with it!

Looking realy forward to the next DVD, I hope the Sam/Bullet tut is in it.


March 12th, 2008 @ 12:14 am
got it, yes! Thx everyone on your team!

March 12th, 2008 @ 12:58 am
Mr. Kramer just a request for a new tutorial,
always great to see that theres an impact or shockwave alongwith some BANG! Makes a scene more cinematic with that wiggle expression u add.
I was wondering if you would include a tutorial that is related to something similar as
in the Matrix-P1 movie where (almost at the end of the movie) a helicopter collides with a building and theres this great Shockwave along with some great particles of glass just spreading off the point of impact ... i realized that it could jus be possible after watching the planet explosion tutorial, but thet tut is not that advanced or..i don do something of this nature
This should help:
And thnx for the great products...n Tutiorials... love VFX
March 12th, 2008 @ 2:13 am
Very nice Andrew! I've been waiting for this DVD for awhile now. I am here every day since many months now. This is great to hear its finisht!

Guess what! Soon (this even this month) I am going to buy all the dvd's from your collection. Also I am waiting now for the special edition DVD. Could give me an estimating time for this release?

Greetings from the Netherlands!

March 12th, 2008 @ 2:47 am

Thanks for the help andrew!

March 12th, 2008 @ 5:55 am
These effects seem very much like the ones found in tinderbox 3, and boris continuum 3. Are there any differences?
March 12th, 2008 @ 6:08 am
Well, they are a fraction of the price.
March 12th, 2008 @ 6:14 am
Hey Andrew,

is it intentional NOT to include .aep files into the Twich content/Tutorials?
I know with every purchase we do get .aep files, and even with your free tutorials, but not with Twitch?
March 12th, 2008 @ 6:14 am
great Plugin, great Tutorials! Purchased it yesterday! Thank you very much!
greetings from germany!
Jimmy A.
March 12th, 2008 @ 6:49 am
Great plugin! I have done this sort of effects a lot. Now it's soo much easier!

Hope next version ad some noice rotation too. Why not even some 3D rotation!? It's perfect for making that hand shake cameras feel stuff.

Regards / Jimmy
March 12th, 2008 @ 7:37 am
Yes, it is intentional not to include tutorial project files, for example Riot Gear & Evolution did not include project files the for tutorials.
March 12th, 2008 @ 7:49 am
Hey AK..

In the promo of TWITCH. The crawling tentacles like things- was it done using particular(somewhat similar to the light streaks tutorial)???
March 12th, 2008 @ 8:20 am

I love your products and will be buying twitch shortly. I just have
one question... where do you get all those wonderful vocals and
music that you use on your promo/teaser videos?

Hope you can let me know Andrew... =)

Thanks again!
Miguel Alvarez
March 12th, 2008 @ 8:21 am
just played with it, really really cool plugin.
Trying to recreate these effects manually would take hours and hundreds of keyframes.

an excellent addition and now my favourite plugin :)

keep up the good work :)
March 12th, 2008 @ 9:25 am
Yeah I agree, the promo looks AWESOME and like Suvir said, maybe it's similar to the light streaks?
March 12th, 2008 @ 10:12 am
The "tentacles" from the promo were probably created in a 3d app using an extruded nurb which was animated along its spline curve. You could achieve something similar in trapcode stroke or particular, but it wouldn't look the wouldn't get the subtle reflections and shading.
Andrew, you and your team put together a wonderful plug-in...Cheers!
March 12th, 2008 @ 11:16 am
Hey, can you create the promo with tentacles wires in the twitch? do you learn it?
March 12th, 2008 @ 11:39 am
benjamin, these tentacles where done with 3D Studio Max, not with TWITCH!
Andrew great work on your Plug-In. Highly recommend it!

Can you tell me which music is used in your Showreel 2005 ?

March 12th, 2008 @ 12:56 pm
nice work.. i hope we get some more tutorials on 3ds max to after effects projects
March 12th, 2008 @ 2:01 pm
Steve, the music is: a requem of a dream, or something like that
March 12th, 2008 @ 3:57 pm
I have enjoyed playing with Twitch - very cool and useful in so many ways. Have even tried some experiments in combination with 3D Stroke and Particular. I also will be checking out Grundge in the future. If you do a Twitch ver. 2, you could add a few new operators like; spin/rotate (behavoir controls for spin center, strength, etc.), a built in glow, etc. I consider Twitch to be the best 3rd party plug in I've seen for some time.
March 12th, 2008 @ 4:59 pm

Thanks for creating this awesome plug in, it's just what I have been looking for to put into my horror films. You've saved me a Hell of a lot of time. You are a GOD. Keep up the good work and I can't wait for your next conquest.

Dustin James
March 12th, 2008 @ 5:45 pm
The best thing about Twitch is the amount of effects and control you have with it. It really is "controlling the chaos!"
March 12th, 2008 @ 7:18 pm
Andrew again you done a Great Job....!!! Very Cool Plugin!!
March 12th, 2008 @ 8:46 pm
Thank you again for this product. Very useful for my movies. The best product and worth of my money I ever bought. I have created few of my project files using this bad boys (twitch).


PS: I am hoping your next product, you will attach your autograph.
March 12th, 2008 @ 8:50 pm
ANDREW, Twitch is twitch... Good job, well done! BUT WHEN - Advanced Training DVD WILL COME??????????????????? That effect with bullet DRIVE ME CRAZY!!!!!!!! I'm so waiting for your Advanced Training DVD!!!!!!!!!!
benjamin mydland
March 12th, 2008 @ 11:44 pm
Yeah, when is the advanced training dvd coming? :D
March 13th, 2008 @ 2:27 am
I bought this, and absolutely love it. I need to upgrade my computer though. Do you think it would be cost effective to make a dvd available too? Because I would buy it again for collectors value... aesthetics i guess. i don't know, i just like having dvds.
March 13th, 2008 @ 3:20 am
Bought Twitch just a few days ago.

Great plugin and totally worth the money. Howerver, it takes quite a bit of render power. Previews can take quite some time.

Im working on After Effects CS3

MacBook Pro
2,4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
GeForce 8600 GT, 256 MB

Im running OS-X Leopard (i know it has some issues with CS3)

Has the long rendering anything to do with my system?
March 13th, 2008 @ 3:26 am
Be sure to install the update for AE CS3, AE is very unstable with leopard. If you would like to troubleshoot further, please email support and we can help you get the most out of the plug-in.
March 13th, 2008 @ 3:30 am

Is it possible to bring a 3d max object into the 3d space of after effects??
March 13th, 2008 @ 3:46 am
Wow, thats what i call instant response!

Ive just mailed support with my question with all version numbers.
Good luck with the nightshift :-)
March 13th, 2008 @ 4:20 am
First of all I just wanna say: Great work Andrew! I will get this for sure!

But I can't help but asking.. What's the name of the song used in the preview for this awesome product?

Thanks alot!
March 13th, 2008 @ 4:49 am
as usual great product - using it in a corporate film im editing right now!...thanks again

Allister in Glasgow - Scotland
March 13th, 2008 @ 5:24 am
Do you even sleep Andrew?
March 13th, 2008 @ 6:57 am
ANDREW, ANDREW, ANDREW - Please inform WHEN the Advanced Training DVD is coming???????????????????????????? Can you put approx date????? I think a lot of people WAITING for it!!!!! I really enjoy YOUR SKILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jim Andrews
March 13th, 2008 @ 8:55 am
@ Suvir, Not a 3D model, But a rendered image sequence, or a 3D Max Rendered Video you can import to AE, You may also want to take a look at ZAXWERKS for some cool 3D in AE.

Andrew Twitch looks awesome, I hope to buy it very soon!
March 13th, 2008 @ 9:12 am
Andrew, Twitch is out already, you can stop the all-nighters. 3:00 AM?!?

March 13th, 2008 @ 9:20 am

any chance that you make a tutorial how you create the dark cellar / garage where you showing the light effects from the Twitch promo video? I assume its 3d max?
March 13th, 2008 @ 9:38 am
March 13th, 2008 @ 9:57 am
I just messed with Twitch last night.... INCREDIBLE! Even the presets are the very thing I will need or use in my projects. You and your team are a talented bunch....

Oh, and Andrew does sleep.... on Sundays.
March 13th, 2008 @ 10:16 am
@ Jim Andrews

Thanks for the info... i hav always been importing rendered videos from max to ae... Was just throwing my chance.... Wanted to do a walkthrough for an auditorium that i designed in max which takes years to render in max.. so was jus curious....
March 13th, 2008 @ 10:24 am
Hi from this side of the world. I believe ths is the first Time y post a comment, although I must tell you I have seen all your tutorials. I was just wondering. All the twitch video promo was made with AE? Just curiosity. Great work.
March 13th, 2008 @ 11:41 am
OO YES... It works :D Thx
March 13th, 2008 @ 11:50 am

This is an awesome plug-in! Thanks so much. This will be sweet for some of the effects for a Kung Fu/Mortal Combat movie me and my friends are trying to make!

Here is a quick video I made.
(And before you watch it, Yes I know I said "Twist" instead of "Twitch".
I was thinking of the evolution thing :S)
Jim Andrews
March 13th, 2008 @ 3:14 pm
@ Pixelito Design,
Almost Everything you see in the "Twitch Promo" Andrew has covers in his "FREE"
Tutorials, Specially the "dark cellar / garage" you speak of can be found in
Tutorial 27. 3D Room

I hope that helps you discover just HOW GREAT and AWESOME VideoCopilot and there products are :)
March 13th, 2008 @ 4:54 pm
Jim, I'm not so sure he make the garage in AE. It looks too good. But maybe.
Mark Santella
March 13th, 2008 @ 5:35 pm
Andrew! I love the music (particularly the vocals) on the promo. Is that available? I have Designer FX but haven't heard any vocal pieces. If you can point me in the right direction I would truly appreciate it. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
March 13th, 2008 @ 9:15 pm
Excelent Andrew......... i will buy it......

March 13th, 2008 @ 11:50 pm
i really like the parking garage you did in 3d .. the lights and everythign look really good , not that your going to answer but how did you get the lights to luminate like that in the parkign garage looks so perfect .
March 14th, 2008 @ 12:31 am
Me too Andrew.

... The music.

March 14th, 2008 @ 12:41 am
Hey Guys,

its off topic but i saw one of your great Tutorials (tut48) in a MMORPG Trailer.

Really nice to seee everywhere ur great Stuff.
March 14th, 2008 @ 2:24 am
When are Andrew realising the "Bullet" Tutorial!!??
March 14th, 2008 @ 2:55 am
Thanks Jim but I think that the garage is done in 3d instead of texture placement. But iam not sure, it would be great if Andrew comment on this?!

March 14th, 2008 @ 4:03 am
The bullet yes!!! com on. i need it :P:P:P
March 14th, 2008 @ 4:14 am
Remember the BLOG RULES kids!

Rule #7. Do not beg for new tutorials.
March 14th, 2008 @ 4:33 am
@ knakrz: actually, it's one section where you can request tutorials, but only in that section, if you comment in another place it will be considered as a ''not respecting the rule #7" (to say like that) heheh :D
March 14th, 2008 @ 4:47 am
@Flubber, yes, but that is NOT in the blog, it's on the VCP site...

AK rules, not mine...
March 14th, 2008 @ 4:56 am
What's the choir song called and where can I download/buy it?

O and btw, great promo, if I had a creditcard and if would be over 18, than I'd definitely buy it. :D

WOW! Looks awesome! It will be very handy in my common movies! Thank you Andrew and the rest of the VideoCopilot team!
March 14th, 2008 @ 9:31 am
Hey, you crack (tutorial) addicts! Give AK a break! He just spent long hours getting Twitch to you, he's got a business to run, and he's got a beautiful baby girl to take care of (see post above at 3:20 am as evidence). So CHILL! Go practice your craft and create something original while you wait. Enjoy the anticipation. Geez, you guys are probably horrible at sex...

VCP 4 life!
March 14th, 2008 @ 9:40 am
Loving my twitch dude...
March 14th, 2008 @ 9:43 am

Adding more RAM is DEFINITELY the way to go since your comp is basically the same as my MBP.

I have the 17" HD display 2.4GHz IC2D (bought it Oct. 26th when Leopard came out) but I have 4GB of RAM and have no issue with "long" render times.

I recommend OWC's RAM at Can't beat it for $97.94 (current price)

PLUS don't forget to use OpenGL for your renders...MUCH faster times when using your OpenGL 2.0 on the NVIDIA card.
March 14th, 2008 @ 9:47 am
@ Grim

Spot on mate. Give the master some `home time`

I have enough to be getting on with so if anyone the the impatient posters are not happy, why not try a bullet time effect by yourself and try beating `the one` to the tute...
March 14th, 2008 @ 11:22 am
Andrew Karamer must compete for the $25,000 grand prize. Hey it's from DELL

Andrew! you've got what it takes by all means!

You'll kill 2 rabbits at once, you can then cut the video and make tutorials.

Awesome and amazing plug in. A lot of way to use it and so low cost....
Mister Kramer you're a genius.

is it me or this use this "twitch" on this link below.
March 14th, 2008 @ 9:28 pm
Hey Whats Up ? I Got Twitch like 3 days ago on Your Video For The Twitch With Lighting You do not show how you did the whole intro where the wires are going longer from the room and going to the text Twitch . How Come You Do Not Show That? Because I Wanna Do A Gaming Intro With A Different Background And Text .
March 15th, 2008 @ 2:38 am
I was just thinking, this plugin applied to some greenscreened (or possibly just masked) actors or objects or areas could be pretty damn cool. Maybe applied to a hologram effect or to make someone or something appear or dissappear in a neat way. Like that set extention tutorial, if the castles "twitched" into existence, or some sci-fi-matrix-world-is-anything-real or beam-me-up-scottie type thing. Or even just the next awesome car commercial.

Great work Andrew et al.

P.S. 67 more days til Indy.
March 15th, 2008 @ 5:01 am
For Andrew (Not Andrew Kramer)

I cant help realizing your comment above. Your comment may sounded like complaint or demanding but arent you glad he made this awesome tutorial and plug in for us with a descent price?

He is not going to cover the whole intro he did for twitch because some of those scenes requires 3D max or whatever program he used.

Remember, andrew kramer is making this tutorial because he wants us to get an idea how your project is going to be and not to copy cat his project, if it is then it wont be an original. If you copy one of his project and people might say, "hey ive seen that intro before". How do you think that feels.

In Conclusion, dont get disappointed if he didnt show all of the intro as tutorial. Everything he attaches as tutorial in that packages covered the whole idea how to create twitch :)
March 15th, 2008 @ 7:25 am
just bought Twitch...and what can I say except..WOW.... excellent job...really...

April 1st, 2008 @ 12:55 am
Really worth its price! What a good Plugin. I was having hunderts of Adjustmentlayer with wiggle operators for glow movement and stuff like that. No i can have it all in one, in combination with shakepreset its all you need for stunning entertainment

My first Twitch Projekt, had to be finished within 3 Days and i love it :)

LOVE Twitch I have already used it on several projects! I have a question maybe someone could help with:
I am trying to add and expression to have Twitch control the blend with original parameter of CC toner. So that when twitch well twitches the blend with does the same. Say goes from 16% to 50% blend based on a value of Twitchs light going from off to on. Is this possible? Is there a better way?
May 19th, 2008 @ 3:42 pm
Hi, i want know, music en video PROMO twith, who compose music? excuse me english bad :P.

May 24th, 2008 @ 1:42 pm
