A Grand Release

On May 20th we have a great special effects DVD arriving, The Bullet, but we are also releasing the long in-the-making Series One DVD. This DVD contains a 20 minute Q & A with myself and Sam Loya in addition to a pretty funny out-takes reel. There are also a few extras and the free tutorials from 1-65 in full resolution and iPod ready quicktime movies. Now you can take a little Video Copilot anywhere.

We had planned to offer 2 DVD’s, a standard one and a special edition one, ultimately we decided to just produce the special edition one that includes the Basic Training and the Presets too. The DVD will be going for $24.95, those of you asking for a donate button, here it is. We will probably be including this in a bundle with the new training DVD as well.
And for the highly alert ones out there, we know that most of the tutorials are online for free but this DVD has much more great stuff that you can’t beat for 25 bucks.

Official product info will also be online. This DVD is for the fans and people who travel, or have lousy internet. We’ll make a series 2 after another 50 tutorials if Sam doesn’t move on to bigger things by then…

Finally, I’m working on a new tutorial that is very cool. And if you know me, I never exaggerate. EVER!

Sounds good.

On a separate note however, i have taken this short waiting period as a chance to build my 3D programs skills. I would really recommend checking out the blender particle system, if you mess with it long enough it becomes very powerful.

Also, I was wondering if the training DVD is going to come with all the elements (e.i. footage, textures, explosions, etc.) needed to make the "Bullet" Scene.

Dear AK and friends,

I know that a lot of fans would like to shoot their footage for the upcoming bullet DVD so they can sit behind AE as soon the DVD is released! (Like myself with my brand new HD camera from S@ny!!) Could you please consider to give a kind of tip or small explanation about how to prepare ourselves when shooting the needed footage for this DVD?

Sorry for putting this request maybe in the wrong item but I know a lot of us want to ask you so..

Hey Andrew, I just wanted to say that you are a huge blessing. I've bought all your product, and have loved every one of them. I'm in the military, so the fact that you are offering your tutorials on ipod format is awesome! I'm often on a ship or desert, or some place with lousy internet, and now, I'll be able to learn. I used to download your tutorials overnight b/c my internet was so slow, and then dedicate the weekend to watching and rewatching it, never shutting my comp of b/c I'd have to wait for it to load again. Now, I'll have no excuse now except if I'm lazy for not learning. I will be making a sampler, and you can bet for sure that you will see a majority of your techniques in there. Words can't express how grateful I am, both for your generousity and all the things I've learned(*and fun I've had) with your tutorials. I really hope you will continue to keep up the truly AMAZING work, and really realize what a blessing you've been in my life. The training I've gotten from your website I'd never would of been able to afford, but thanks to you, all I need is my own hard effort and creativity. Take care Andrew, and keep it up!

God Bless,
Jason

He is ex BBC editor with over 20 years experience and he is so excited about learning more about AE...which is funny because he used to be such a snob...but now he is a good guy!

I try and spread the love...ya know.

(I don't know if you know what heard what happened to the trapcode people site...the hosting company could not charge Trapcode's account and instead of contacting them they wiped the server...whoops)

can't wait for these dvds to come out. especially the Q&A section. I was thinking for series two, you should have a similar thing for the t-shirt comp. where a few weeks or months before the release you get us to send questions via a Q&A section on the website and then the best ones get chosen onto the dvd and could win a signed copy from you, sam, bobby, Val etc. what do you think?

I'm super excited about this DVD, i can't wait to buy it, I was thinking yesterday, you know how dad's get their son's interested in football from a very young age. " you know the "come on son let's go play some ball". I was thinking would it be wrong to get them interested in the same kind of way with video copilot products. for instance " come on son let's go create some interesting title sequences using twitch". I think when I have kids there going to think Andrew is like the wizard from OZ but video copilot style. haha

anyway Andrew if you read this then I would just like to say I love your work, I buy a lot of AE books, I have CS3 classroom in a book and the Mark Christainson one but I love your stuff the best.

Web tutorials are great and I'm all for free, but with the quality of products you guys produce, I have no issues spending money for the comfort of having a DVD, even if they are the same tuts as are on the website here.

You guys have really inspired me to think out of the box and make great products on my previous "cookie-cutter" themed products. :)

The Zune 2 supports H264 as well as the Zune software. I have a Zune 30 gig (Zune 1) which does not support H264. Which is fine. I could bring them into AE and just compress them as a format my Zune 1 would read if that is okay with your copyright uses. If not I understand. Got to feed the kids.

Actually, these shirts were made by Rick Q for our Trip to NAB. The idea of custom T-shirts inspired our competition.

Hi MarksVFX,

I got some great converting-software with my Creative ZEN. Don't you got some too?

Hey Andrew,
serious Question:
Will the Basic-Training be included? Some of my friends buying 70€ (~ $108) Training DVDs which are, between you and me, crap. They don't have Internet, so they can't watch yours, which are way better. And they would get 65 awesome other Tutorials - and the best thing: Q&A!!

:-)

Regards,
Lucas

Wow, sounds very cool! Would be awsome to watch your tuts in the car to school!
This is a must for me, I think that i will press the 'Donate' button now there is one, after all you have done for all of us here, checking your website every 5 mins.

Awesome glad to hear it's 1-65. Some of my favorite tutorials are after 50. I also think making 1 DVD is a better choice. The Q&A is a nice addition. Looking forward to that. Hopefully it's not all questions about Sam's rise to fame and spiral down fall.

Quick question.
You mention that the videos are iPod ready. I use a Zune because there aren't any brown iPods yet (oh but when there are!) and I am wondering what format they are. Animation, H264, Motion Jpeg, etc... Zunes have a limited number of supported formats so I just want to know if they'll work with mine.

Hey Andrew I am making a tutorial request in that section of the website. Check it out for me
I want VCP to take a shot at making the car light trails in Speed Racer as they turn extreme corners.
Plus I have another special one to request. Drop me an email if you have a chance I have some 3d car motion renders I can donate that play at 90 fps. They would be perfect to use as a test.

I have all these tutorials in my arsenal, but I will gladly buy the series one dvd as a form of thanks for all the money you have made me and time you have saved me as a effects specialist.
VCP is the ish.
