Free Pizza (aep)

Now that I have your attention, there is no pizza. I’m sorry. What I do have is an artistic text treatment created in After Effects. Just download the project and change the text in the “Edit TITLE” pre-comp to your favorite slogan and the “OUTPUT” comp will update with a stylized fire look.

It’s not photo realistic but it’s a fun, procedural treatment for making even boring stuff seem fun!

Download Project for AE CS3

PS, sorry no earlier AE versions, the time machine is in the shop.

Looks really nice!thanks
December 18th, 2009 @ 11:17 am
Andrew doesnt sleep, he waits.
and if sleep is bothering him he roundhousekicks it
December 28th, 2009 @ 8:01 am
It is perfectly normal for Andrew to post this at 4:18 AM, This is because Andrew is nocturnal and, if anything, he stays up late to post all the other posts. I can prove this in the fact that all the videos you see of him are taken in the dark. If you put him in the sun he will feel the after effects (hehe) of his lightning strike tutorial and will explode into millions of CC Particle World particles.

and lol at yard work,
Keep up the good work :D
October 25th, 2010 @ 1:13 pm
