Sporting a New Design!
I’m not really sure how long it has been since we have redesigned the website but we thought it was time! The new design is focused on content so we finally made the page wider. We’ve also updated the tutorial section so that you can watch the tutorial you click on with few clicks. The project file and related […]
Pixel Screen Experiment!
Here is a fun experiment I created to simulate cool LCD Pixel effects using built-in plug-ins only! It uses the Camera Lens Blur effect along with a depth map to create realistic DOF. Watch Breakdown on Youtube Download Project File (CS6) Sound FX Created with MotionPulse!
Element 3D V2: New Specular Model!
Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]

Gongratz, while I'm writing Andrew, this question has been bugging me for months now. Are U behind the design for the opening and bumps on Rachael Maddow???? So simple but so effective. Reminded me that everything doesn't have to have a backflipping wow factor.

I'm an editor at G4 and I've been telling people about your website for a year now. Looks like they finally listened to me. We're really big fans of your stuff. Keep up the great work! BTW, Michael a lot of those bumpers and cool intros are done in Smoke.

If any of you guys go to concerts and stuff you'll notice how much of andrew's stuff gets used. I was at Armin Van Burren's event the other night and a lot of the elements from Evolution got played there. Also a lot of particular presets.

Andrew's lessons are applied to this tv show in San Francisco, LA and San Diego..

note a familiar tutorial about 1:13 into this video..
http://www.technowtv.com/?cat=9991945&subcat=4524034&video=105

and about 8 seconds into this one..
http://www.technowtv.com/?cat=9991945&subcat=4524034&video=105

and this uses Action Movie Essentials at :57
http://www.technowtv.com/?cat=9991945&subcat=4524034&video=105

They're not the best work, but not bad for a guy teaching himself (via Andrew, Aaron and a bunch of books from Barnes and Noble).

Keep up the great work Andrew!

I've noticed how the products here on videocopilot are being used widely on in the real industry. I've seen stuff on Animal Planet which undoubtetly must have been Riot Gear. And some other stuff on Channel 5 here in Sweden, when they show teasers of upcoming series and films i've noticed that they've used Twitch. So congrats Andrew. Stay the best!

Nice work, man! I noticed The Sports Network (TSN) here in Canada used some Evolution stuff for a World Junior Hockey promo. Their people throw in VCP stuff pretty regularly. It seems that you've reached motion graphics people at pretty much every level. Way to go!

I also noticed an effect at the bottom of the Eagles-Vikings game using a grass graphic in the same way you used that plant image, zooming through multiple layers. I don't know if that was TSN or ESPN that did that one, but the timing would lead me to think that they got the idea from you.

Regardless, you guys are awesome!

Clearly we can see that you are doing fantastically well in the world. I work at the Movies and have noticed a lot of your Content/Products featured in the Ending + Beginning credits of movies.

For Example if you see 'Yes Man' be sure to look out for Andrew's 'Riot Gear' paint splatter footage's overlayed to the shots.
