What a weekend!

It has been a pretty eventful weekend around here. First things first, the Video Copilot T-Shirts are in. FINALLY!

We had a few problems adjusting artwork but the wait is over. I’m literally wearing one right now. We’re going to take some pictures and share them on the blog this week. We ordered a couple hundred of them so as far as selling them, we are still figuring that out. We may do a limited run for a couple of days… our shipping system isn’t quite designed for sending clothes so we need to strategize.

Pro Scores
Our new music production product is wrapped and we are just getting the promotional material ready like the website and promo video. Depending on the replication turn-around, we should have it out the second week of December or so. This product has really turned into a gem, I can’t wait to show you what’s inside.

There is a bunch of other stuff going on around here too so I’d better get back to work. More news to follow.

Clean Lighting with Element 3D V2
Here are a few experiments created in Element 3D V2 with simple lighting and Ambient Occlusion. In these examples I’m using the Ray Traced AO which is a bit slower but creates very nice results. The other important setting I like to use is called “Lighting Influence” under the Physical Environment. This setting helps blend the […]
Announcing Element 3D V2!
It has been a little over 2 years since the release of Element 3D V1 and I still remember it quite vividly. I recall staying up all night before the launch, trying to get everything done.

Not sure what kind of shirt stock you're using, but take a look at SpreadShirt.com - They're like cafepress but a little more affordable with some extra features. You can upload your artwork and then make a "store" where the shirts are made to order and shipped out. Worth a look.
So are there any Black Friday specials for VideoCopilot?

hi All,

just bought the british Computer Arts Projects nr 177, and there is a small article about Andrew Kramer's Frindge Title Sequence, incl. a small interview and 4 screenshots from the sequence.

And maybe good to know, this CA special is about Motion Graphics.

Her is it's URL:
http://www.computerarts.co.uk/about_us/latest_issue/computer_arts_projects_issue_117

it costs about 17 euro (in Holland in store)

Andrew, just to let you know; keep up the great work you do!! ( I keep checking the tut's, blog and forum every day for new stuff... ;) )

I will recognize that your tutorials have changed my life and given me increased inspiration to create and you will recognize that some of us could be described as "broadband." Make a 5X size shirt and I will buy it.

Andrew, you should just do limited sales on the shirts each week. Something like 25 a week. That way you arent killing yourselves trying to send out clothes when you want to be working on the good stuff.

You could do limited stuff, sign a few, whatever, but keep it to just a select few each week, only one order per customer until you go through the first batch of 200. Then start over.

Just an idea. Rock on.

Hi Sir Kramer,

I'm planning to buy one your dvds bundle before Christmas using the cake coupon code. Now that I know Proscores is coming I don't know what to do. I suppose the coupon won't be available anymore at that moment and probably Proscores won't be in a bundle right away or Santa is gonna be kind this year ?
Waiting for your reply before buying. :)
anyway, thx a lot for providing such good tutorials and those great dvds.

Andrew you know your idea is actually doable, downloadable T-Shirts, "E-Shirts" as i would call e'm.

Here where i live you can buy t-shirt printable paper. You use it as regular paper and then iron it on a t-shirt. If you have a printer and a iron, thats all you need!

Downloadable T-shirts will be the best thing since sliced bread. Only a genius like Andrew would be creative enough to think of such a goldmine industry. The only problem is how do I convert it from a jpeg file to a synthetic fabric?

I can't wait to check out the Pro Scores. I am constantly editing both video AND music, so I am anxious to see what Pro Scores can do. I'm sure it will be a killer product.....but probably not as good as downloadable t-shirts...;)
