New Features

The new animation preset will now include a built in wiggle function for adding smooth random movement to the camera in addition to precise camera control. I’ve also added more locations for each target for a total of 10 (instead of 7). The name of the preset is SureTARGET and a video sample will be online Tuesday afternoon with the tutorial coming out this week. There is more happening but I’ll let that unfold as the week goes on. Talk soon.

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. I was nervous and excited.  My son Josh had just been born a week earlier and I was working from home at the time. […]
Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]

Besides that, you can simply change the currents language
by using the .exe Files in the "Languages" folder inside
your AE folder.

Yay, here in Germany its already wednesday. How mean. xD

@Vers - Speaking of sodas... Have you ever had root beer? That friend of mine in Berlin never even heard of it before. So, I told her to find a store that carries it. After a lot of searching she finally found it. I told her to make a root beer float with vanilla ice cream. She did, and she hated it!

How can anyone hate a root beer float??? It's not natural!

Well, enjoy your mountain dews!

Yeah, it's just a little past noon now here in LA. :)

Andrew probably passed out from the heat we are having.. it's like summer here today. I actually had to turn on the air conditioning...and it's 37 below zero in the midwest right now! Wacky weather we're having.

@ Vers... I have a friend who lives in Berlin. She she says pretty much freezing there right now. Keep warm man!

I can't wait to see how this functions. I am sure it will be something I can use every day. Man Andrew, you are a gem. Thank you for spreading all of your creative genius-ness around in here.

To give an example of how much you affect the video community, take a look over at YouTube, and enter "Demon Face" in the search box. There are tons of people playing with your demon face warp tutorial. Some cheesy, some very cool, some funny.

I bet this plugin will work great with the vanishing point exports from Photoshop to AE. There is a cool tut on AdobeTV http://tv.adobe.com/#vi+f1523v1203 . They use VCPs Evolution in it as well.

Good Brother!

I had a friend over last night with his family. His son attends Chapman University Film School. He thought he would impress me with his end of quarter project named "Demon Face Warp."

I totally busted him.

Looking forward to the new preset. You should charge for this!
