Technical Details about E3D V2

just saw the Star Trek trailer 2 (http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/startrek/large_trailer2.html) and I think you were involved in the VFX. Though your name is not in the credits, but you have established a working relationship J. J. A.

Hey Andrew,
Do you have a brother who can do what you do, but uses Cinema 4D instead?
I'm a mac guy and don't see 3D Studio Max and a PC coming my way anytime soon.

Sweet. Another thing that made my day (The first was the Pro Scores announcement and its freakin' jaw-dropping wallpaper). I'm going to sleep peacefully tonight with so much to do and to look forward to.

Awesome as always. Quick question Andrew will we possibly be able to learn the 3d text twirling in the bullet promo? The scene I'm referring to is when the 3d text spins fast to reveal "Advanced Compositing to 3d and AE Integration" The camera angle is like a wide fish eye lens and the texture and lighting is amazing. Any thoughts?

Thx
