I love you Andrew! :D
September 20th, 2009 @ 2:11 pm
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!
September 20th, 2009 @ 2:13 pm
love the first one Andrew

thanks =)
September 20th, 2009 @ 2:13 pm
I believe these textures are going to be in Riot Gear 2

nice work there.........
September 20th, 2009 @ 2:20 pm
I agree with Movie Maker. A page with all of the projects would be cool. Thanks for this and all of the resources you provide Andrew!

Very nice, Andrew! Very mysterious.. i like it
September 20th, 2009 @ 2:32 pm
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 :)
September 20th, 2009 @ 2:37 pm
COOL!!! I knew the preview was based on that tutorial. :)
September 20th, 2009 @ 2:38 pm
Sorry, i misunderstod... the section with the project files are good as it is :)

Thanks for sharing your knowledge Mr. Kramer..
If everyone would look at the tabs at the top you would all see between On the Blog and Tip & Tricks, there is a tab called Project Files..
September 20th, 2009 @ 2:43 pm
Wow nice, just like the new project file page

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!

It looks really nice.
September 21st, 2009 @ 2:06 am
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!)
September 21st, 2009 @ 2:09 am
Oops sorry about my stuttering problem above... what can I say?.. it's 2am after another non-stop working weekend. :)

See Andrew, you're not the only one who works around the clock.
September 21st, 2009 @ 2:41 am
I cant download
September 21st, 2009 @ 5:06 am
I'm going to try this out soon. :D
Thanks Andrew, looking forward to some new tutorials!

September 21st, 2009 @ 7:29 am

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.

I'm loving all the titles and such Andrew, but I wish you could make more effects that we can put into real footage again soon. Don't get me wrong, I love your tutorials, but I think you've been making too much 3D titles lately.
September 22nd, 2009 @ 4:50 am
nice textures u have here, thanks
September 22nd, 2009 @ 5:00 am
hey Andrew,what happened with the shirts?

greetings from Serbia!
September 22nd, 2009 @ 5:24 am
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

PPS I'm a dude

September 23rd, 2009 @ 7:12 am
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.
September 23rd, 2009 @ 7:42 am
Thanks SOooooooooo much!! By the way, when is quickmatte coming out???
September 23rd, 2009 @ 8:49 am
Thank you :)
Will definetely use this
September 23rd, 2009 @ 10:20 am
Great Andrew STEP UP..
September 23rd, 2009 @ 3:48 pm
see your work in Nemo opening(France 2009)
Also featured in Trapcode Vimeo gallery...
people just download your files and forget to give credits to VideoCopilot
have a look!
September 24th, 2009 @ 6:33 am
I think you are educating and hopefully training a new generation of animators.
September 24th, 2009 @ 6:48 am
Hey that was published on my birthday thanks a lot Andrew XD
September 24th, 2009 @ 7:21 am
comment no actually related to the post, but wasn't sure where to post this.
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):
which i found thanks to the guys over at
I hope you enjoy. Some fun ideas which could make good tutorials (use of Particular which you often point out)
September 24th, 2009 @ 9:48 am
Can you tell me why more tutorials from Video Copilot doesn't work? I see only "Video not found" :/
September 24th, 2009 @ 9:54 am
Hei andrew Thanks! Brazil loves too! ^^
September 24th, 2009 @ 10:07 am
I think using Normality utilities with these ones can be interesting...
September 24th, 2009 @ 10:15 am

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!

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...
