Announcing Element 3D V2!
It has been a little over 2 years since the release of Element 3D V1 and I still remember it quite vividly. I recall staying up all night before the launch, trying to get everything done. I was nervous and excited.  My son Josh had just been born a week earlier and I was working from home at the time. […]
Pixel Screen Experiment!
Here is a fun experiment I created to simulate cool LCD Pixel effects using built-in plug-ins only! It uses the Camera Lens Blur effect along with a depth map to create realistic DOF. Watch Breakdown on Youtube Download Project File (CS6) Sound FX Created with MotionPulse!

This update is insane! What can I say, we like to push the limits of technology and features, but […]

Great work as always Andrew!
But I have a question!
Did your team make the titles for the Solomon Kane movie?
I just saw the trailer and it rang a bell!
Especially the end title that blows away like fire dust!
It would be a nice tutorial...

Hi!

Thanks for the free grunge projects and textures!

Recently on T.V, there was a program on basejumping (channel 4 9pm) and was full of designer sound effects and pro scores. Also, there was a hanna montana advert whiched used the "speed particles"! video copilot has become HUGE and i want to thank you for helping me get into the world and work of visual effects!

Regards,
Matt

Have been checking in on videocopilot for a few weeks, and starting to learn AE thanks to the great tutorials (thank you thank you).

Anyway, wanted to point you in the direction of this nice little piece of work (I thought):

I hope you enjoy. Some fun ideas which could make good tutorials (use of Particular which you often point out)

It's very thoughtful of you to include the hirez images and such. I think you are training an whole new generation of compositors. You never know where your influence ends. I once wrote the first book on 3D animation for artists. Years later I discovered that many of Hollywood's top vfx animators started with that book. Amazing...even the guy who animated the face of Kong for Jackson. It feels good, Andrew.

Oh EM GE. Mr. Kramer, I've been looking for that font everywhere. Before I got my new computer, I used that font in every commercial I made... literally. If you want I will send 10% of my profit to you!

PS I do not use your project files, tutorials and other stuff... but I used your tutorials to get to where I am today... I love you :P

last day i was watching DubaiOneTV with grandma and suddenly I said wow look at this the music is picked from ProScore collection. and she looked at me and said what the hell is ProScores? I said it's an amazing cinematic design tool, and then she turned her head back and kept eating her boiled vegetable. I couldn't believe how VideoCopilot products are popular in Video podcast world. thanks a lot.

I like the second image more than others.

Gee, I'm glad I came back to double check Video Copilot. After reading the "We're Closing Our Doors" blog title, I deleted the shortcut from my browser.

Just think, I would have missed out on these great project files. And most likely, a vast increase in the number of free tutorials now that the VCP team has an improved workspace. haha

(just just kidding about deleting the shortcut.. NEVER!)

See, this is why I love this site. And this is why I will always buy VCP products first.
Not only do you and the crew offer more bang for the buck, but you also never leave a customer hanging in the cold!

BTW... I tried the new COD Modern Warfare 2 and it RAAAAWWWKKKSSS. They really managed to outdo themselves with this one.
Hope to see you online!

Great work again, Andrew! Really good textures and font! I agree with the others that it should be a page of all the project files. I know they are in the blog section, but it would be more organised if they were in a separate page like the tutorials!

Anyway, excellent work, as always, and keep up the good work :)

Very cool! I think you should start having a project file page as well as tutorials, so that all the stuff you'd like to do, (all the stuff that is helpful, but not "cool") we can still have access to.

Also you should do that because I was trying to find your glassy image project file, and it took me like a half hour because I had to search through your entire blog!
