Working on a New Tutorial & Preset

Warning: DOMDocument::loadHTML(): Empty string supplied as input in /var/www/videocopilot.net/blog/wp-content/themes/videocopilotV7/post_home.php on line 8

Hey! Just wanted to let you know, I’m developing a new tutorial and preset that will be out this week. It’s so cool, that it’s getting it’s own blog post.

It’s not a specific effect but rather a tool and a technique that will give your work amazing depth (not DOF either). And it’s free! Of course, if you want to support Video Copilot’s ongoing mission to make cool stuff, head over to the products page and check out our great DVDs! I think there’s a banner somewhere around here 🙂

Be sure to check out our new tool Pro Scores while your at it, the audio demo is now online.

Circuit City
Making circuits! After trying to create something large, I thought I should try to make something small! I started by taking a circuitry texture and placing it on a plane in Element 3D. I used the texture in the Glossiness channel and the reflection channel to give the pathways a metalic look. Next I built the […]
Cloud City
Continuing the Element 3D fun! This started as a desert scene and soon turned into a cloud city! Typical. Part of the fun of these render projects is just creating random stuff and designing without a specific goal. It’s actually been really challenging and exciting to try various techniques. In this scene, I used an aerial […]
My 10 Cloverfield Lane Contribution
Earlier this year I had the chance to work on 10 Cloverfield lane, on this horrifying matte painting and composite. Many image-searches for road kill have scarred my mind! As always it was a pleasure to work with Dan Trachtenberg.     My work on 10 Cloverfield Lane! #nightmares #mattepainting A photo posted by Video Copilot (@andrewkramer) […]

Could not come at a better time. Currently working on adding effects to an award winning action movie and the greatest challenge has been getting the added elements to "lay" in the scene better.

Does this new tutorial have a Christmasy feel to it?

Is it a magic, fairy dust preset that I can sprinkle on my graphics to make them awesome?
