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…

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!

Back Open :) Thanks Everyone!

So we decided to move in the new place early and everything went smooth. Still have to unload some boxes but it already feels comfortable. We are back up and running! I’ll be sure to post some pics for anyone interested. Just need to take a nap first!

PS: I hope everyone is recovering from their minor “heart-attacks”, I know the last headline was a bit cruel, but you know me
