ODE TO THE SITE
"Oh dear site, how we will miss thee.
But your new and sexier version is coming, YIPEE!"

Please expect my logging on to the site in 10 minute intervals checking to see if the facelift has happened.

Thanks again for all the hard work and keeping this community going!

Everyone here owes you Andrew (And the team).
*Who would you like the cheque to be made out to.

Later aligator!

Andrew, you are truly a supporter to those looking for inspiration. Imagine how the world would be if those with as much potential as you used 1/2 of it in their day to day lives. I really mean it man. So I wish I could do more, but all I can say is "Thank You". So Thank You Andrew Kramer.

P.S. Videocopilot has a very promising future...

Hello my name is James and I am a VideoCopilotAHOLIC ( "HELLO JAMES" ) "It all started when Sam turned into a Demon......and....I ....(wiping tears).....I.....Tried to keep away....But the next thing I new I was compositing 3D Matte Painting Towers!! I went so crazy waiting for the virtual photos tutorial I bit off someones ear!. I was on the my last leg and found myself on the the latest season of "COPS" just look for me, I was running away in a white "wife beater" tank-top. I screamed, "Kramer is my hero" as they tazed me and threw me to the ground..... I will have my girl send me contraband Andrew Kramer tutorials here in prison (baked inside a cake).....you are the best!!!

July 31st, 2008 @ 10:10 pm
Actually i think Mr.Kramer fully intends on dropping the site completely, as well as his old life which is full of success and moving to Greenwhich england were he will become a pastry chef by day, and tactical assasin by night. Makes perfect sense
July 31st, 2008 @ 10:10 pm

When I read that all WOW, AWESOME, LOVE IT with one million of "!!!!!" I am thinking what the hell happened to normal people? Those who say "Thank You" without screaming, those who appreciate things but without all that kiddy show AAAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!".

Finally those who actually have something to say, not just want to write that "cannot wait for new design" and such...
I greatly appreciate what Andrew is doing, but I wonder if there is some person bored as well with all that teen-like behaviour...
July 31st, 2008 @ 11:16 pm

It must be awesome. you made it possible that many designers and AE-artists are waiting and making their bosses angry by waiting for your new website.
no one is working anymore.
haha.

I don't think I have ever been able to give you something in return for everything I've learned from this site.
"They come for the effects, but they stay for the philosophy"

And I don't think I'll be able to do so quite yet!

But no worries, it's coming.
Oh yes, something good is brewing, and it'll take time.

Mr. Goodspeed
August 1st, 2008 @ 4:01 am
Let me guess ... Well, I think a dark greenish look would be fine for the site, just as the "AE Basic Training" section. Instinctively, Andrew's often choose the green when he creates a solid or some. So I think it could be almost green, the "army look" of the beginner section is perfectly clear, easy to read and not colour-aggresive.

Anyway, we'll see on time Guys !

Hallo Andrew,

Du machst es aber auch wirklich spannend. Es ist jetzt über einen Monat her, als Du von der neuen Seite berichtest. Jetzt steht das Update quasi vor er Tür und nichts passiert. Ich kann es kaum abwarten und schaue schon alle paar Minuten nach, in der Hoffnung das etwas passiert. Du verstehst es wirklich deine Fangemeinde mit Spannung zu versorgen.

Also, mach hinne, ich muss leider in 2 Stunden auf eine Feier und hab da kein Internet. Obwohl, mein iPhone ist dabei. Puh, dann kann ich weiter fleissig schauen.

Ich hoffe Du nimmst mir ein Deutsch nicht übel, aber Englisch ist eine Qual für mich.

Since i know VCP I see the DVD-stuff in so many comercials an series. It's amazing. In Germany there is a TV-Chanel for Videogames. They use the brushes and the paint-drops. There is a comercial which uses the ice-background from the DSFX-DVD. Very cool :)

Whao!!! i can feel the thrilling, anticipation from all of the Videocopilot community, i remained calm and cool cuss i know whatever is coming from Videocopilot will definately be amazing.... so i crossed my finger and keep on focusing on my computer....

Well done Andrew Kramer (the LEGENDRY)... you are the man... right from Videocopilot version 1.0, i could vividly remember then that Videocopilot got no Blog and only has 5 tutorials, one of my favorite was 3D Grid Reflections, then every little help i need, i will always run to Videocopilot.... it's a gud time to share memory and achievements.... am proud to say Videocopilot was part of my success.... it's not just a normal site, nor a place you come and find tutorials... it's a place you can hope for your dreams....

Congratulations Andrew Kramer, Sam Loya and all other co-teams... you guys are teriffic and have been Focus and ambitious and definatly we are taking Videocopilot to version 10.101010

When i saw comments on the new website, i could see passion, love, family, to my susprise even folks from solvenia, germany.... if am not mistaking i saw comments from Iraq and Aghanistian...kidding... but really i could feel a community

You already got a remark for Videocopilot.NET... keep it up... you are wise and GOD Strengthens you! (Kramer)
August 1st, 2008 @ 7:20 am
I'm sure Andrew will awake soon and see that this blog received 500+ posts over night... that has to feel great to have such a loyal fan base.
