Working on a New Tutorial & Preset

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.

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.
