T-Shirt Design Contest

We are finishing up work on a Submission section of the website specifically for a new T-Shirt design contest. We’ll have some great prizes and hopefully it will be fun to see what everyone develops. We should have the rules and information at the end of the week and we’ll be accepting submissions soon after. Remember to keep your ideas secret until we begin accepting submissions.

I’ve got one idea so far but it could use some work.

One Week!
Element 3D V2 is almost here and we have been holding back on a few cool features!  Be sure to check back on Monday as we reveal several new features! Be sure to Follow us on Twitter for additional updates! Updates from twitter:  New for C4D Users: Element 3D V2 let’s you import most materials and textures […]
Element 3D V2 Official Release Date!
Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2! Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in! This update is insane! What can I say, we like to push the limits of technology and features, but […]
Sporting a New Design!
I’m not really sure how long it has been since we have redesigned the website but we thought it was time! The new design is focused on content so we finally made the page wider. We’ve also updated the tutorial section so that you can watch the tutorial you click on with few clicks. The project file and related […]
3D Noise in Element 3D V2!
One of my favorite new features in Element 3D V2 is the new 3D Noise options and deformation! Here are a few experiments where I use various bends and twists along with 3D distortion to stretch a sphere around. I don’t know what these things are but I feel like eating ice cream and licorice now! […]

Dear Andrew Kramer VideoCopilot Captain,

My name is Jimmy, I'm 8 years old, This is my first flight,

I like to watch the clouds go by.
My mom says the crew is nice.

Hey Andrew here is what the back of your T-Shirt should say!!!!


The three worst things to hear in the office at videoCoplilot.net

Mark Jacobs The Technology Officer says, "Oh shit!"
Sam Loya The Actor / Designer says, "I have an idea!"
Andrew Kramer The Founder, VFX Supervisor says, "Hey, watch this!"

Andrew I did not have time to read all the posts so if some else already mentioned this, excuse me...

The winner of the T-Shirt contest should get your next product free!......

Ummm... maybe?

Some incentive goes a long way...

The adobe team sucks against Mr kramer

it's a plugin that is called After effects.
the basics of the program is twitch.
well in fact Adobe trys hard to match up with Mr. Kramer but their lack of ability compared to him is just too big.^^

That is true, we are working very hard on several big projects at the moment and of course I'm trying to keep putting out free tutorials but it can be very difficult to switch gears so frequently.

Things are going well and we should have news early next week about the Advanced Training DVD. Until then... Look over there...

Hi all,
I think AK is extremely busy with the dvd and is trying to keep us happy and udated with these kinds of in.between posts!! Personaly I am also checking the site several times a day and hoping some news about the dvd of new tuts is available but patience is needed here..

It's like waiting the days before the Xmas presents haha.

How about a frame from the 3D eye tutorial, one where your eyes are all googly and wicked, and under that, "Bring me a fruity drink with an umbrella or Sam dies."

Sounds cool,

but one thing I have noticed that whenever people use fx made from video copilot tutorials you get so many idiots that post on your youtube comments "thats an andrew kramer effect" its like we cant use any of the stuff learnt from here cos people say you stole it from AK, it may be me but how is it stolen when AK GIVES the project files for people to use? That and the fact that AK is showing how to do special fx that are used in films for example

skin displacement - the mummy, matrix
Demon face morpth - buffy, charmed
medical zoom - CSI

So if i take part in this i would hate for anyone to comment on my youtube anything about AK No offense dude you are awesome and have taught me a lot with AE I just hate the small minded people that judge your film by whose effects you have used and not judge the film as a whole
I will definatly be taking time off from my current project to join in on this contest. Sounds fun. I have a few good idea's as well.

As I read about the contest 1000 ideas came to my mind!

this is not giving away ideas,
these are ideas that first come up and that are not that good, so it's a warmup for me.

btw i wanted to know how good the others are.

well maybe too early.

This is just hilarious how people reading the title of the post are starting to ask questions about the rules of the contest and giving their ideas away without reading the whole post where all their questions are answered.
Attention! This post is just the announcement of the contest! The submissions in the comments won't be counted!

@ Connor: LOL

@ Harald: AM is before noon (from 0=24 o'clock to 11:59), PM is after noon (from 12 to 23:59). So "2 AM" is 2 and "2 PM" is 14. (But this is off topic. Use Google first, before you asking such questions here.)

Andrew,

Wasn't sure the best place to post this note to you. I just returned from Photoshop World 2008 in Orlando. I wanted to let you know that Richard Harrington mentioned your 3D Camera Projection 2 (http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials.html?id=21) during his 3D Photos session. He didn't mention you by name just Creative Cow and briefly described your tutorial. I knew from the description the exact tutorial he was referencing. I'd like to see you have a session or two at Photoshop World!

I'm thinking on the front it should say
'One thing I've learned...'

And on the back it should say.
'They come for the after effects lessons, they stay for the life lessons - Video Copilot'

Once you make the Tshirts don't throw them around in an area where they can easily get stuck on the ceiling. I think we learned our lesson at AENY.
