News? We Got News.

Well things have NOT stopped behind the scenes here at Video Copilot we are still working on amazing things. The Action Essentials 2 HD collection just needs a few more gas explosions to make it complete, I’ll let you know when that is ready. What makes this product tricky is that we need to have the elements complete so we can make tutorials and the promo video with a finished feature list and information.

In other news, we have built a new download system to improve our customer experience that is just being tested and should be ready to launch soon. It will make downloading and accessing purchases easier and faster.

I have the soft shadows 3D tutorial recorded (3d max) and now I’m just trying to find time for the After Effects portion. I’ve also developed a separate tutorial for a similar effect done only After Effects, this includes a few other cool tips as well. Then on Tuesday, I’m shooting a scene for a quick tutorial to improve difficult fight scenes.

Don’t miss it!

Destruction Experiment!
What is this thing! I’ve basically combined a bunch of stuff into one experiment! I might have been inspired by the amazing planet explosions from The Force Awakens but wanted to see if I could get a cool version inside Element 3D. Few Notes on this experiment; I added smoke elements, shockwaves using CC Sphere, and even […]
