TShirt contest. Hmmmmmmmm. I'll second that. I thought I have missed the announcement. But it sure looks like it never was announced. ;-( Why its delayed. I remember VC saying you would like to make a best of it so it takes some time . . . which was like 3 months ago or so . . . ??

Also, when the KINETIC tutr. will be posted?

Its great to see you are busy man. Good for you.
But please, do not forget about us.

DUDE! These are very helpful free tutorials, especially in the middle of you working on a paying project. BONUS! How in the heck do you figure out stuff like placing a vector blur above a fast blue to create this type of effect???

I think this tutorial looks fantastic and I really want to try it out combined with a kind of 'bloom transition' on this video I'm doing at the moment. Like many I've been a huge fan of this site for a long time and am always impressed by the quality of new content, this place runs on good vibes and I truly hope that the more impatient posts recently are a result of increased traffic to the new site. Thanks as always for the output.

hey Matthieu, it is almost exactly the same technique as the crater, it doesn't make any difference whether the model is moving or not.

Hey Andrew,

thanks for the great new tutorial! It's awesome.
I don't know if you read our requests here but I'll just ask...
How do you composite 3D footage with real time footage when the 3D footage is animated?
Like the crater... But then with a moving model that walks on the floor!

I hope you can help me out...

Hey Andrew! Whilst I would love to buy more of your products, the exchange rate at the moment from US to Australian dollars is frightful! It's going to cost me way more than the original price even WITH the voucher :( Perhaps in the future things will be more promising?

In the meantime, thanks for all the great online tutorials! You're doing a great job! :)
