Video Update: What’s Up!

I thought I would try something new today so I recorded a video update. Not to be confused with the inevitable “Video Copilot Show”, I’ve recorded this short video update to talk about some of the things that are happening at Video Copilot. I’d like to keep these short and casual but it might be a nice way to talk about things that are difficult to put in words.

Bad news: I have to start wearing shirts and possibly shaving regularly.

Let’s see where this goes…

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 […]

New Product Preview: Optical Flares

UPDATE: Product Now Available!

Mysterious things have been brewing behind the scenes at Video Copilot.
Dark things. Well actually bright things.

Drum roll please… I’m very excited to announce our new plug-in Optical Flares. We are still very much in development but I wanted to give you a small taste of what to expect. Optical Flares is a next-generation plug-in for creating realistic lens flares and reinvent the look of digital lens flares beyond perfect geometric shapes to natural organic light.

This plug-in already has over 50,000 lines of code but I want to show you 1 small feature.

I know there are many questions but please hold on to your questions since we will be releasing more information next month that should help clarify what this is all about. We don’t have a release date yet but it will be sometime after October, possibly November. The price will be $139.95 but I’d rather talk about that when I show you all of the amazing features!
