Video Copilot: Inside the White House…

When opportunity knocks, it helps to have a camera. OK, so this replica Oval Office may not be the real thing but it is a cool backdrop for something…

To fair, I have no idea what anyone is going to do with this but it just seemed cool to have a 180-degree view inside the home of the greatest US president.

I combined several pictures into a panoramic using the panoramic script from AeScripts.com, which is an After Effects script marketplace, where you might finds things you didn’t even know you needed.

BTW:
I don’t post often but some people have wondered about our twitter page.

Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]
Element 3D V2 Official Release Date!
Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2! Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in! This update is insane! What can I say, we like to push the limits of technology and features, but […]

Element 3D V2: New Specular Model!
Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]

When Andrew mentioned "The Best President Ever" referencing the Oval office picture he was directly or indirectly referring to President Reagan since this is a picture of the replica that resides in Ronald Reagan's Library. God bless the USA and yes, Ronald Reagan was "The Best President Ever" then there is Dave.....

Hey

This looks great. I can probably use it to mimic that new supernatural show title treatment. My question is, the glow on the letters or drop shadow makes it a bit dirty...it actually makes it look like the tittles were made in an Avid Media Composer title tool. Is there a way to fix this?

Thank you so much all the tutorial, you guys rock!

Hei, Andrew,
Great effect for keyed out president walking and the camera panning with him or something for a movie. The only give away if, of course one could be able to figure it out that it was created from stitched photos is that the wall when panning at the upper rim breaks up in pattern of straight lines connections, doesn't look oval or round. I am not criticizing it its just an observation. I think it is great and very innovative to have a footage wit z-space that one can use should one need to show the oval office for some or another reason in their creative film/video making. What other compositing software have that plug or script, Nuke, Shake etc. can you tell us?
Congratulations and thank you for inspiring us all and keeping the passion burning.

I love your tutorials and ideas, but I love your politics even more. Harrison Ford was by far, THE BEST, President EVER! Maybe you can put Sam in the shot, standing by the door in Matrix glasses, as his head of Secret Service.

I use particles sometimes like a grid to show Z space. It's not meant to be part of the virtual world...
Bruce

Something I've always wanted to ask.... what's the fascination with particles in just about everything? It's cool enough without all the extra stuff in there. Did they have a pillow fight? Is that the VP's left over dandruff? Did the roof get pulled off by aliens and now it's snowing? The world needs to know....

Hey Andrew, yeah right, no idea what anyone is going to do with this, but.... wouldnt it be cooler to have a view "around" the table (instead of the words).... and an 180 degree view in the background??? This would be an "matrix" effect. And... I am sure, the only one who can give us a good and easy solution is you!
I am thinking about a mix out of the "3D City" and the re lightning tutorial. And why it is snowing in the office, wouldnt shafts of sunlight for the 3D look not be more realistic???
