Hello Andrew Kramer,
Was the metallic text made in a 3d program (3ds, c4d etc) or was it made in AE using you technique or a plugin? Please tell me how did you do.
Thanks

Fabolous Trailer Animation as well as Sounddesign to the score. "Killer Tracks" is always a good solution I think...

Andrew, I am about to buy Action Movie Essentials 2, but i just have one question. In the gallery demo video, you use Adobe Bridge to organize the 20 categories and 500 effects. Does Action Movie Essentials 2 come with Adobe Bridge? Or do i have to download it? And if i have to download it, is it free?

I just wanted to shout out to my neighbors and apologize to them. Because when I went out to the mailbox and saw that my Action Essentials 2 arrived, I let out a scream that sounded like a mix of Chewbachka and an 8 year old girl. I hope they didn’t call them cops, but it’s worth it.. Now let’s go blow some stuff up! (Rendered, The Video Copilot way of course lol)

Got mine today and I'm excited to get started using these great elements. I got the 720p and my disks were secure on the round center button when I opened the case. Fully covered in bubblewrap. Thanks again VCP team.
5 years ago
Yo Ryan,
Sorry to hear that man, we have had really good luck with the dual cases in the past but of course this is a small possibility.

If you do find there is a problem with the any of the discs in the future, just email support and we can send you a new copy of the product. Any physical problems are guaranteed 100%

Hope you like the material!

Why does it cost so much? Are you kidding? Go over to Artbeats and take a look how much just a fraction of what you are getting here will set you back then see how good of a deal this is.
5 years ago
You guys might wanna find another distributor for your packaging. I received my 720p set today and both discs were loose inside my clamshell casing and the discs don't stay very firm inside for shipping purposes. One of the discs are somewhat scratched, but functionally should still work just fine and am not worried about that. Just think the material quality could have been better and something more sturdy to hold up to jostling in the mail from the DVDs coming loose inside.

Looking forward to using these new effects! Thanks!

@ Jason,

You wonder why? You have to use common sense, the 720P is 16GB and the 2K version is 32GB, do you think regular people could download that much?
I know my Internet provider won't be happy.

It wouldn't be as such high of Definition as the 2K Version, and you would have to Re-shape the size of the effect.

How many Mb are the lower resolution samples that come with the 2k version?

Because I was thinking that for people who order the 2k version, you can allow the samples to be downloaded, at least so we can see all of the clips immediately after purchasing them.

That's awesome that you did the Main Credit animation for Star Trek! That movie rocked! I bet you felt honored. But on another note, Have you ever made any films, like real ones? You could do it so easily...and you got Sam...he's the next Brad Pitt. :)

So I was wondering if we can expect a short war type film where we can see the AE2 package on another level.
You did that for the first Action Essentials so I thought it'd make sense if you did that for this one. I dunno, maybe it's too much trouble.

Anyway, awesome product, great trailer, Video Copilot forever!

One question: How did you make the metallic 3D text?
Is it a render from 3DS Max ?
I'm afraid you can do anything within AE, so I was wondering if that was made in AE or its a 3D Text rendered from 3DSMax?

Once again amazing work & amazing Product.

Mr Kramer you never disappoint, your work is awsome, in fact every time I see your stuff it makes me realise just how crap mine is. I often feel like throwing in the towel and giving up but your tutorials, work and products inspire me to battle on in the hope that one day I will be as good as you! The question now is though:car insurance or 2K version? Looks like I'll be biking it to work.So not only will I have amazing looking footage in my projects but I'll be fitter and healthier as well.Thats got to be money well spent.

One question Andrew:

The smoke at the very begining of your new promo for ae2 has a camera move to it, is the smoke part of the elements? Because when the BG orbits around the smoke, the smoke most definetly looks 3D.

The music is not from Pro-Scores, I try not to undervalue the products by overusing them in my productions. We license most of our music through various broadcast outlets.

No, it is not, as far as I know.
Maybe I am wrong, since I do not have Pro Scores, my neighbour has ;)

Anyways, I wounder who is compositing these tracks..
Are they made by you? Or any classical composer I should know from music lessons?.. ^^

For me it has a strong touch of Hans Zimmer, but I guess this is nonsence...

Anyways, the bgm is awesome!

Andrew,

How awesome is this...that promo got my heart pumping. I'm making budged room right now to get this. Very good work...it's hard to come by really good elements, especially at 2K.

Also, Andrew do you think maybe you could show behind the scenes of making Action Essentials 2(the more the better)? On the side note, I've been wanting to hear from others who have used the Red One camera, and I realized you used it for AE2. Was it really different then anything else you have used before?

Thanks,
Ryan

I love this trailer so much. I have an absolute obsession over 3d Text and graphics. I really want to take some time to learn programs like 3ds Max and produce effects like yours (me and everyone else in your community). Stand by, my order is ready for launch.

Sickest trailer yet, Kramer...

Awesome trailer Andrew!!!

I have 2 question about it:

- Was the text made in a 3d program (3ds, c4d etc) or was it made in AE using you technique or a plugin like 3D Invigorator?

- Were the particles made using Particular or were they a part of the pre-keyed stuff you had shot?

Peace.

Oh my god! You need to chill out with this stuff AK. I don't get paid for my freelance stuff for ages and I'm pulling my hair out. This product is keeping me awake at night thinking about the possibilities and I'm weeks away from getting it. Very cool stuff, I literally had a dream about this last night. Just a point as well, for those upset about shipping costs or splashing out on the 2K version... Have you seen how much it costs to buy just 1 pre-keyed fire element in SD from various royalty free sites? AE2 is going to smash these guys! Brilliant.

Loving it as always.

Great Trailer...you said 60 minutes of training...that means it is only for the AE2 (How to use type)OR Have you also included some bonus tutorials in the pack? Like actually exploding a Car, a person Shot and blood coming out etc.?
