I'm Sorry Shape Layers! I love you!
I must confess… I was never a big fan of shape layers…  we just didn’t get along.  I was used to using masks but suddenly (around AE CS3) the same mask tool began creating Red vector shapes. At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]

Destruction Experiment!
What is this thing! I’ve basically combined a bunch of stuff into one experiment! I might have been inspired by the amazing planet explosions from The Force Awakens but wanted to see if I could get a cool version inside Element 3D.

Why Boujou?

I think some people may be overlooking the purpose of the upcoming 3D tracking series…So I though I would share my master plan.

It is true, Boujou is very expensive for any individual… even many companies. What makes this series unique is the unveiling of concepts and techniques that go beyond home movies and into the realm of high-end visual effects at a fair price. (free)

Think of it like the magician that gives away all of the industry secrets… except I’m not wearing a mask.

There are a dozen programs for 3D tracking and they all share the same purpose; camera matching. So why Boujou? Well the real question is why not. There are a couple free ones out there, but they are somewhat limited and then there are mid to high ranged packages that cost $200-$6,000 but even that might be out of reach for many as far as price is concerned as well as features. One way or another someone is going to feel left out.

For those aspiring visual effects artist I can assure you that Vfx shops are using the 6k-10k software so you might have a slight advantage over some.

I’m confident that once you understand the principals you will investigate solutions that may work for you and your budget. You...
