Sweet Action 2K Box & Info

The 2K version of Action Essentials 2 (above) will consist of 4 DVDs in 2 dual-DVD cases, while the 720p version will be on 2 DVDs inside a single Dual case.

Now if I can just finish this promo video…

Action Essentials 2 will be available in 2 Versions:
720p High Definition [1280 x 720] $99.95
2K Film Resolution [2048 x 1152 ] $249.95 (beyond 1080p)

UPDATE: Someone asked if they could see a list of the elements. Sure.
Here it is.

Andrew, You made a mistake in the explosion video with the bus. The explosion isn't reflected in the window of the bus. Reflection of the back bildings is still visible on the bus window instead of reflection of the explosion. :)

My only worry is regarding the length of each footage. Example: If you want to do a burning fire for, 30 seconds or so. If you have a quick fire footage you won't be able to accomplish that.

Btw, Lucas, I think there's a few sound effects in AE2, but for more, there's actually some websites you can go to that give royalty free sound effects.. might be a good place to start (I found a lot of great ambient noises and even gun sound effects on websites like that).

Hey Andrew,
Just out of curiosity, what does the "car_explosion" footage look like? You don't have to show it to us but maybe describe it a little? I'm planning on editing a car explosion scene (cuz come one... that's just pure awesome right there) and was wondering just how much easier this would make my life.

I tried posting a comment earlier, but it never showed. So if this ends up magically becoming a double post please forgive me. I am about to ask the strangest question you will likely ever receive, but do you happen to have a clergy discount. LOL… I know strange question. What kind of minister would be looking for explosions, breaking glass, blood splatters, muzzle flashes, fire, smoke, and dust? Well this one is. Out of necessity I became the resident AE guy at the church, self taught mostly from Video Copilot. We have used movie making as a tool to work with the young people in the community. We have promoted and held 2 junior short film festivals. They were so well received that I am starting a rudimentary summer workshop to introduce some of the kids to AE. Action Essentials 2 would be one heck of a tool to help with our program. I am sure you have never had the need to give a clergy discount any thought before, but I just thought I would ask anyway.

:) Well we definitely put a real budget into this product and the better part of the last 6 months. It took over a dozen guys to accomplish all of the effects not to mention the post work we did. The success of this product will certainly lead of other high-quality collections at great prices.

I hate to sound self-serving but one of the keystones of Video Copilot besides all of the free stuff, is providing great tools in the $100 range. When I first started $100 in the professional world of software and tools couldn't get you much. Even now it is tough to find quality stuff that is affordable. But, being able to keep that price point in place is hard coded into all our future plans.

Chad, I didn't really get your joke.

All I'm saying is that the supposed "loss of quality" isn't noticable if you scale up, but that would almost never be the case.

How do you make the DVD Cases and Covers?

Templates..? Do you have the template and a nutshell explanation of the Action Essentials Box (Like you show in the Angry Monster tut with the "Aim Away From Face" example. The case is laid out flat. Im not to fluent with Photoshop, but do you is that basically 3 essential layers and you just use perspective to box it up?

This looks awesome. I am definitely in. Especially after reading the list.

In another post, did you say you would offer free shipping the first month? If so, does that include this in a combo pack?

(I still need to pick up pro scores)

Hopefully it gets released soon so I can take it on my trip to Iceland on the 3rd. Also if you need any "Icelandic textures" just let me know. I can take some close ups of lava rock, wild flowers, hot babes, etc. ;)

After seeing the list of the live action blood squirts, hits, splatters, and bursts I found myself very concerned for Sam. Is he okay? Did you space out your shooting schedule in a way that his body would be able to replenish the blood?

From Demon Face to getting hit by a car, Sam is a trooper. You should bake him a cake.

You do a great job with your products. I see them all over TV. Canada definitely loves Video Copilot.

Awesome-d00d-plz?,

The elements themselves can be adjusted however you need them to. You can always go backwards in quality. Same with the frame rate. My crappy camera inspires me to spend more time on my cg and effect work which is really learning the hard way, and in my opinion the right way.

Remember adjustment layers are your friend! And utilize P.E.R.F.E.C.T!

And if nothing else, who cares how crappy your video quality is when your cg intros are ridiculously cool!

Are all of the impacts and bloos splatters going to be like AE 1? like only taking up a small portion of the screen, yet it's 720p? Can we like have a sample of one or something?

I dont want to have to scale everything up and the quality becomes horrible....

For Full HD 1920x1080 footage the 720p version is good right?

Or is there any need to get the 2K?

Maybe I get next year a 2 or 3K camera so :P

Really interesting, but I have a question.
If I buy the 720p version and later I need higher resolution footage, will there be a upgrade offer ?
The pain, the pain!!! When will you release.
All those sleepless nights!!

That list looks overoutstanding.

Trust me, this is what EVERYBODY wants!!!

Stock footage trully rules, and for that price, nothing can beat this site. Not even detonation films or even Artbeats! Where would the world be without videocopilot??? Can you ship this stuff to England?? If so then how much? I am begging you now! You are truely the best!

Cheers,

A 10 Pack bundle may be the only bundle we DO offer that includes Action Essentials 2.

The action 'movie' is something we are still working on but we will be releasing parts of it after the product launch. Our time quickly depleted when we started finalizing the DVD... it's still gone :)
