Quick Matte

You may have thought we forgot about a free plug-in we were developing last year. Well we didn’t forget, we just had other things to focus on. However, I’ve been finalizing this matte-generating and refining tool and it’s release is imminent.

This plug-in isn’t going to make people like you but it will certainly help with your matte adjusting needs. Oh, and people will like you more too!

Where are the Tutorials! + NAB 2017!
Yo Andrew! Where are all the Tutorials!?! A reasonable question actually. I don’t have a simple answer but maybe I can share a bit of my process with you. This year I’ve been working on a bunch of amazing content for Video Copilot! My goal was to dig deep into default plug-ins and try to […]
I'm Sorry Shape Layers! I love you!
I must confess… I was never a big fan of shape layers…  we just didn’t get along.  I was used to using masks but suddenly (around AE CS3) the same mask tool began creating Red vector shapes. At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]

This effect is fully customization and can be used to create many cool FX! In this tutorial: Create a dripping water displacement map Simulate realistic camera DOF […]
Particle Turbulence

For anyone using CC Particle World instead of Particular, you may know that Particular’s Turbulent Field is not available. This feature allows random 3D displacement of a particles position. A similar effect can be achieved with Particle World by adding a TURBULENT DISPLACE effect. It works best with smaller particle and it has some limitations because it is only 2D but it is a nice way to get away from “perfect” particle movement.

Reflecting on the Past

A long time ago, I made a tutorial on simulating reflections over a watery surface which I had to revisit recently. I cleaned the project up a bit and now you can use it as a template with your own video. Play around with the displacement map and you can get some interesting results.

Twitch Feature Requests


We’re not anywhere close to releasing any kind of update for Twitch but I wanted to create a place for you guys to request features for this plug-in. We have a few ideas but it would be great to see what you guys thought.

Thanks!
