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, which is an After Effects script marketplace, where you might finds things you didn’t even know you needed.

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

September 1st, 2009 @ 12:39 am
shouldn't the particles be moving in the opposite direction if the camera is moving left, or have i been awake far too long...

yay for the twitter link
September 1st, 2009 @ 12:39 am

Thanks AK!

September 1st, 2009 @ 4:10 am
Yes very cool, i've already tested such an effect with the horizon plug in from Trapcode and equirectangular shots just like in this tutorial (not mine but really awesome) :
September 1st, 2009 @ 4:11 am
Horizon de trapcode ^^
September 1st, 2009 @ 4:15 am
Amazing! there is so Manny things to track in this shot. you could really do some funny things with it
September 1st, 2009 @ 4:18 am
Thx for the link Andrew...
...didn't know it snowed in the white hse ;)

Everydays Christmas to You, huh!
September 1st, 2009 @ 5:04 am
Really cool Andrew, but I have a question. Is this a 3D render or pictures linked together?
September 1st, 2009 @ 5:08 am
very nice Andrew
September 1st, 2009 @ 6:02 am
Also you can do it fairly easy with Trapcode Horizon if you have an equirectangular image
September 1st, 2009 @ 6:09 am
One day it will be your office ^^

September 1st, 2009 @ 10:12 am
Great thanks AHHHHH!
September 1st, 2009 @ 10:21 am
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???

I love the new header! I even saved it to my Desktop. :)
September 1st, 2009 @ 10:57 am
Pretty cool... For a mock up, looks pretty realistic. Was this at a museum or something out West?
September 1st, 2009 @ 11:14 am
September 1st, 2009 @ 11:22 am
Oh yeah, and its free!!
September 1st, 2009 @ 11:33 am

Someone will do an explosion through the window with Action Essentials 1 n 2.. hey I'll do it.. but I'd like to see you do it Andrew.
September 1st, 2009 @ 2:08 pm
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....
September 1st, 2009 @ 2:11 pm
I use particles sometimes like a grid to show Z space. It's not meant to be part of the virtual world...

September 1st, 2009 @ 2:59 pm
Bruce, don't. For all the things this company has given you... Andrew has given us... as film makers, designers, artists... just don't.
September 1st, 2009 @ 3:22 pm
HAHA very useful
September 1st, 2009 @ 4:46 pm
Hey this would go great with a side of the "3D Pictures" tutorial :d
September 1st, 2009 @ 5:14 pm
Oh that's cool. I wish you'd do a tutorial on that.
September 1st, 2009 @ 5:19 pm
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.
September 1st, 2009 @ 5:33 pm
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.
September 2nd, 2009 @ 12:13 pm
do you have myspace? :P
September 2nd, 2009 @ 3:55 pm
Just wondering if Sam really has a facebook, I send a friend invite about a month ago and still not comfirmed, I am just curious what projects he is involved in and how my fav. action hero is doing these days..doesn't seem to be that involved in Copilot anymore..:( Later AK

MANNN andrew this is making me mad. the 3d just doesnt look right. i dont know. it looks like a REALLY wide screen lens. i dont know how you did it but like the couch and stuff is actually 3d so i really dont know how in the world you achieved it.
September 6th, 2009 @ 5:31 am
A desk looks a bit bare without a computer these days.
September 6th, 2009 @ 12:09 pm
i dont know mr. kramer, i think my best president vote has to go to this guy:
September 9th, 2009 @ 10:16 am
I agree with derrick; Bill Pullman in ID4 is truly the greatest president.
October 7th, 2009 @ 12:25 pm

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 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!
October 15th, 2009 @ 9:32 am
very cool.thank you. andrew
November 25th, 2009 @ 8:24 am
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.....
