More Filming

I’m going out again today for one of the last days of shooting for Action Essentials 2. We are also planning a little short film with Sam to show off some of the impressive elements available. We will not being using any practical effects in the film but rather enhance it entirely in post with Action Essentials.

Now where’s my bullet proof vest…

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. […]

3D Noise in Element 3D V2!
One of my favorite new features in Element 3D V2 is the new 3D Noise options and deformation! Here are a few experiments where I use various bends and twists along with 3D distortion to stretch a sphere around. I don’t know what these things are but I feel like eating ice cream and licorice now! […]

Andrew,

While not an Action Essentials topic, I just wanted to give a shout out to you in CA. I teach a Video Arts class in high school, and we just started a unit on compositing. We are using you Lightsaber V2 preset, and I have your "Basic Training" as required viewing for the students. It's been great! Thanks for a great teaching tool!. I hope to add your products to some of our classes computer data base, when we have the cash for it. Again, great stuff. I personally have been using your stuff for the last two years.

Thanks again,

Great, I love all your tutorials and I really want some of the DVD's, I just don't have the money. I can't wait until this one comes out, so I can have another thing that I want but can't get.
Anyway, I just thought I'd mention that you're on the Wikipedia page for After Effects:
