Video Update: What’s Up!
Warning: DOMDocument::loadHTML(): Unexpected end tag : p in Entity, line: 18 in /var/www/videocopilot.net/blog/wp-content/themes/videocopilotV62/post_container.php on line 16

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…

:D Thats awesome!
September 29th, 2009 @ 12:46 pm
Really, you weren't gonna sing? Cause it totally looked like you would. Chocolate rain style.
September 29th, 2009 @ 12:47 pm
Please some more of those! Fun to watch!
September 29th, 2009 @ 12:47 pm
Nice color work. I encourage more video blogs, this one was great!
September 29th, 2009 @ 12:47 pm
:) Excelent!!!!!!! :)
September 29th, 2009 @ 12:50 pm
Very cool! Cant wait for the show
September 29th, 2009 @ 12:53 pm
Very funny as usual. Can I pre-order a t-shirt?
September 29th, 2009 @ 12:53 pm
Cool video! The new plugins sound great and the t-shirt looks awesome!

Is that a condenser microphone you're using? I picked one up a while ago and it always makes recordings with a lot of bass. Which sounds really cool a lot of the time, but sometimes I have to mess with the settings on my mixer so it's not so severe. I love that pop screen, too! Any chance you could reveal where you got it?

Hey loving the flares time to make a star trek 12 I thinks,
Maybe not I’ll leave it to Abrams
September 29th, 2009 @ 12:54 pm
Nice work man, it's weird to see all the tuts and now see you while you speak. Haha.

hi,

i´d love to order one of those t-shirts!
Are you going to ship them to Austria as well?

greetings
paul
September 29th, 2009 @ 12:59 pm
Excellent idea! Now the pauses in your commentaries make even more sense when accompanied by your facial expressions! Ha!

I look forward to seeing more as you make them since everything on this site is pure gold. And btw, congratulations to you and your wife on your new daughter!

A'ra best!
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:00 pm
I like it, but it is way to short. So please continue this project.

Nice to see your face behind your microphone and heard "Hey what's up!"
Awesome!
Blashaque
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:02 pm
nice 2 C how it looks like, when every tut I've seen started with: what's up, it's Andrew Kramer from VC dot net and welcome to another very, very exciting tutorial...
maxpd
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:02 pm
that sounds too hard. it should be a professional hint ;-) so take it not as an offense critic
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:02 pm
I like video better then just audio! or just some text.

BTW you should make films now, with so much knowledge and experience I am sure you will make an awesome movie, funny-action-thriller, wow that will be nice. But think about it if you won't make then who will make?

September 29th, 2009 @ 1:04 pm
Andrew, independent of your creative genius and communal generosity, you are hilariously funny. I could listen to you riff all day. My wife comes down here from time to time and asks why I'm laughing so loud and the answer is pretty much always the same: "Andrew Kramer!"
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:05 pm
i like it like this.. im lazy and dont want to read every blog post..

Also, Were you recording in stereo? it sounded like when you moved your mouth away i could hear it fade left to right (or was it right to left?).
maxpd
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:05 pm
in summary: more of it :-D
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:07 pm
Same amount of AK with less reading. How is this bad?

Also, dugg the lens flare joke. Don't know why I'd tell you that.

nice! now i can see, which face is behind the microphone and said "hey what's up!"
David RZ
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:19 pm
Do you use a Gate for this microphone?

I think not well-calibrated

Gotta love that Blue Light xD
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:43 pm
Cool new technique for posting info. I liked it. Hey, your mic is killer. I'd love to have that one. I have often wondered what kind of mic you used to get such deep and smooth vocals....now I knwo...well, now at least I have seen the top of it....oh well, almost there... Can't wait to see all the new goodies in the works. Congrats again on the new "roommate" (daughter). Best!
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:44 pm

Hi mr. Kramer,
Can you do these vlogs as an podcast or is it too much hassle?
Love your work, man, keep innovating. You're already the best.

September 29th, 2009 @ 1:55 pm
Hi,
Nice Video, but I too would like to know what microphone and pop screen you used. I'm recording Elearning modules shortly and I need a decent Audio recording setup. Keep up the great work
Hunter
September 29th, 2009 @ 1:58 pm

Wow, Just over a week in the new office and you forgot to pay the lighting bill?? Looks like you are sitting in a blackhole :p
September 29th, 2009 @ 2:37 pm
Ha! That IS actually pretty funny to watch. You said once that this isn't the way you normally talk... well, it looks like it is however ;)

cheers man! keep it up!
Cesar
September 29th, 2009 @ 2:47 pm
i think Andrew is releasing he is kinda famous in the comunity so he has to show his face oftenly, besides is pretty nice to watch him while he is talking. I hope they keep doing this way from now :D
September 29th, 2009 @ 2:48 pm
Cool video, you should do that more..maybe incorporate some behind the scene footage.
I'm coming to the US tomorrow Houston TX heeeehaaawww!! hehe j/k
Keep up the good stuff Andrew!
Chris
September 29th, 2009 @ 2:59 pm
It's so weird to see you while speaking. I think we're all used to just hearing you while we're using our brains to the max following your tutorials haha.

Anyway, you're an idol to many of us, including me. When I grow up, I wanna become Andrew Kramer lol.
lucisan
September 29th, 2009 @ 3:03 pm
nice stuff andrew, hope to come with some pretty soon!

September 29th, 2009 @ 3:06 pm
Hahah, great to see something different, after hearing only your voice for so long I can't help but get the feeling that you're dubbed now! :o
Kyle
September 29th, 2009 @ 3:06 pm
Nice blue gelled rim light, like the new video feed so far. Wishin you the best.
September 29th, 2009 @ 3:07 pm
Great video. It's weird to see you speaking when we've just listen to you for so long.
But love the video et hope you'll continue!
September 29th, 2009 @ 3:07 pm
Oh man I wish I noticed this earlier! That was funny! I think the not having noise made it sound out of whack but still, glad to see you and I can't wait for more video! :)
September 29th, 2009 @ 3:09 pm
What kind of microphone was that you were using? It looked like it had some sort of diffuser. Is that microphone good for recording voice overs or animation dialogue?

Oh yeah, and the video rocked.

September 29th, 2009 @ 3:19 pm

I love video stuff

If you're doing another action essentials, please record a 'making of'. I would love watching that with your commentary [And I want to see Sam again! I kind of miss him :P Make a kick ass movie of some sort!]

September 29th, 2009 @ 3:26 pm
Andrew: I sent an email a while back suggesting that you should start a youtube channel for VC. Youtube has a partnership program whereby you become a partner and thus get a cut of ad revenue from hits. Right now the only presence VC has on youtube are mostly people trying out VC tutorials and posting their results, and the occasional wholesale rips and promos.

VC fans, If you want Andrew to make more money, post telling him to start a youtube channel
September 29th, 2009 @ 3:31 pm
great stuff man, i love vloging
hope u will make it more often
Eric
September 29th, 2009 @ 3:34 pm
Awesome! I would certainly like to see more video blog style stuff. Both Plugins sound fantastic by the way, thanks Andrew!

I did have a question about the lens flares, the flares you used don't look like the ones built into AE, am I to assume that it has presets for different lens flares than those we're used to?
isi123
September 29th, 2009 @ 3:45 pm
We finally see you say your famous tutorial lines in video. Fantastic. A great video, nice setup, professional. :-D

I hope you have more videos like this to update us.
September 29th, 2009 @ 3:50 pm
Keep doing them there are great
Thanks for some awesome tutorials!
you'r the AE god/.

very cool.

Man! it was even funnier to see you saying " Well we're going to start selling monkeys, as long as we get into the business..." HAHA! You definitely rock, Kramer

Greetings from Brasil!
September 29th, 2009 @ 4:57 pm
Awesome stuff, can´t wait for the vlog, t-shirts, quick matte and lens. Well, i can wait actually (learned while waiting for the Meteor series) but anyways...rock on Andrew!
September 29th, 2009 @ 5:05 pm
I like this format of updates a lot. Much more personal and you can get more info out there. Once again, well done.

September 29th, 2009 @ 5:23 pm
Hey Andrew, What kinda camera was this filmed on?
Andy Winters
September 29th, 2009 @ 5:40 pm
Very nice vblog. Well executed. I liked the quality of the sound, and always have and like that there is no distracting background. Very informative and would love to see more of these. As long as the quantity of the tutorials doesn't drop!
Eyal
September 29th, 2009 @ 5:47 pm
You would have got a much better recording sound if you were facing the mic ... your facing the cam while the mic is 90' to you = not the best sound ...
September 29th, 2009 @ 5:47 pm
COOL STUFF!!! Andrew, cant wait for the vlogs :)
William R. Cousert
September 29th, 2009 @ 6:00 pm

A few minutes with AE can fix it...
Nike
September 29th, 2009 @ 6:03 pm
That wasn't so bad so please keep it up
and by the way I don't mind if you don't shave
but that with the T-shirt is a other thing :)

You could just have these Vlogs with no tutorials, and I would still come back everyday.

September 29th, 2009 @ 7:12 pm

Hey... I just wanna say thanks for all the great tutorials and tips. I´d have to say that over 80% of everything i´ve learned in After Effects is thanks to Videocopilot, so i´m very grateful for all your help. Great idea the Video Update.

Cheers from Chile.

Keep up the good work.

Hi here is Korea
I like you! And i love Video Copilot!
September 29th, 2009 @ 8:18 pm
I like that you are willing to forgo self consciousness. I NOW do voiceover for my church anouncements,tv spots and web spots as well as design them, even though I do not like my voice.

If ywe continue to practice and do our best our talents continue to grow, even if we do not particualrly think we are good at it and others do.

Keep up the superb and great work
September 29th, 2009 @ 8:26 pm
Awesome to see Andrew, keep these up. Makes it more personal to see you every now and again. As always your content and work are much appreciated and excellent!
September 29th, 2009 @ 8:34 pm
You've got to start sending Email Alerts to keep me on the up and up on when those Plugins are coming and the T-SHIRTS !!!

Wordizzle! Great Job! Keep it up...(somebody has to... ;) )

Definitely Entertaining.

Look forward to more video updates.

September 29th, 2009 @ 9:48 pm
You know, i think when people post their comments, they think:
"ok, i don't know why lose time posting this. Probably nobody will even read it"

But look at that modeling socks joke from Phil up there.
That's a horrible one, really blows.
hahahae, just kidding man, excelent joke.
And probably nobody will even read this comment also.

anyways, cool stuff AK-47.
September 29th, 2009 @ 9:51 pm
This is really quite odd. The production value on your video seems way too high, and is almost a detriment. It almost feels staged (which the lighting is) which almost makes it impersonal in a way. It's nice to see your face for once, but I would lose the high tech background, and do it more raw.

Just my $.02

Hi-tech background haha you must have saw something I didnt. It was just a green screen with select lighting, I dont know how that is hi-tech. I liked it.

Hey Andrew,
What didn't you face the camera straightly, and gave that angled pose?

Just wandering : )
sasha strelnikoff
September 29th, 2009 @ 11:08 pm
are you in a cave???
September 29th, 2009 @ 11:16 pm
There's not even a green screen if you ask me. Just smart lighting - well, actually quite basic lighting - and it works great! I can't agree with you, Kert Gartner. I think it's not impersonal at all and fun to watch.
I'll look forward to more videos like this. :)
elvijsb
September 29th, 2009 @ 11:20 pm
i think you should make all the following blog updates with this so called video thingy. ah, and nice hair! :)
September 29th, 2009 @ 11:21 pm
Hello guy !
Nice to see you,
Bad news : I'm afraid you're really crazy now ;-)
Can you ship for me 2 monkeys as soon as possible ?lol
September 29th, 2009 @ 11:23 pm
Geez.. dude... you are even funnier when you talk rubbish on video.. i couldn't stop laughing..

Dude, hope to see you on Season 9 of Scrubs.

P.S if you get the part i want a free Tshirt.
September 30th, 2009 @ 1:05 am
Can't quite believe that you actually read all these comments, but if you do...

You deserve the success you're getting, quality work but with humour - there's too many video/film/fx people out there who take themselves too seriously - you guys really hit the mark.

I love the video entry - maybe PiP tutorials? Assume it was shot with either a RED or Canon 5D, looks that kind of quality. And I don't think it was impersonal, it was simple, clean, focussed on what it was meant to which is you.

Great work, please don't stop!

Another original idea Andrew :p
September 30th, 2009 @ 2:35 am
Andrew, take a break. We remain faithful to you anyway! You work too much! But we probably do all in this business...
(From German translated by my iPhone... damn i love this mobilephone... please create an app :) BTW nice mobile webpage!!!)

nice show.
keep t on!
September 30th, 2009 @ 2:58 am
Mr Kramer!
You should definitely make more of these, it's always good to put a face to a voice. I thought you'd have a big white beard and glasses...and a red hat...and a red suit...with white fluffy bits and a herd of reindeer.
Good to know that you atleast exist anyway :)

I'll definitely try and bag me a t-shirt.

Keep up the great work. This website is my favourite website on the web.
Cheers,
Kieran
September 30th, 2009 @ 3:08 am
Good video, you should make more of these video's to tell us the latest updates. (It's just because i'am to lazy to read)

Cheers

September 30th, 2009 @ 4:52 am
I've noticed that when you talk, your left eye is closing a little more thant the right one.
Now, try not to think about it on your next video blog... good luck ;-)

PY
September 30th, 2009 @ 4:59 am
Hey Andrew, will t-shirts be available to download or DVD only? Arf.

I cannot tell you how excited I am to hear more news about quickmatte! I'm doing a big project soon involving a lot of gren screen work, some of it on a large scale and I've got a feeling quickmatte is going to be a god send!

Also I think this video update works really well, Andrew you're obviously a very charismatic guy and the camera loves you baby!

Keep it up!
Chad Ronning
September 30th, 2009 @ 7:21 am
I think the video updates will be great and very popular, hope to see more soon!
September 30th, 2009 @ 7:26 am

Keep up the good work, guy!

September 30th, 2009 @ 8:16 am
OMG, the voice has a face!! really fun to see you talk on camera, instead of only your voice.
please continue with this video blogs!

btw, can you ship a t-shirt to holland? thats a small country in europe, above belgium, quite larger than belgium, next to germany. its not france, or austria... or jupiter...

Sorry to say i agree with Kai, your face doesn't match your voice. But looking forward to the Video Copilot Show.

September 30th, 2009 @ 9:09 am
Awesoem video, I like the fact that you did a little bit of production work on this video when you spoke about the new lens flare plug-in and no distracting background. Please keep them coming, great job.
September 30th, 2009 @ 9:11 am
Please some more of those! Fun to watch!
I liked T-shirts.
I wold liked make some here in BRAZIL, post the t-shirt pictura for us. I'll print here.

daily update please!
al2cl3
September 30th, 2009 @ 9:28 am
Amazing! Love the idea of filming yourself to tell us what you need to say (news and other stuff). You are funny in the way that you tell a joke but you don't have any expression in your face. lol!

Ps: Very professional looking video, eg: when you talked about the FX you put one over your own footage. nice!
Sam
September 30th, 2009 @ 9:46 am
Very nice! I'd specifically like to note the great lighting and sound! Funny and top-notch, as always. I encourage you to make more "video updates." Being able to actually see someone's face also adds to the great community aspect of this site!

On a side note, I would like to say that the Optical Flares plug-in looks awesome. I have to ask, was it inspired by the new Star Trek you helped on? Cause the flares in that film were one of the things that really sold it, and the Optical Flares look similar (meaning awesome!).
Jim

September 30th, 2009 @ 1:05 pm
Andrew, I think it's a great way to keep us updated, nice touch with the optical flares. Keep wondering if the blue hair light is real or just an After Effects effect too...

Excellent Job Andrew. It was nice seeing you in action. You definitely have a radio voice. I did radio for many years before going into vfx. Know what you mean about the late night phone calls. I was a radio shrink...you can just imagine.
Carl
September 30th, 2009 @ 2:34 pm

I just realized that we did not see a new tutorial the whole entire month of September. Wow its been a while.
September 30th, 2009 @ 2:55 pm
Moving to our new studio and having a baby take time... lot of stuff to do :)
September 30th, 2009 @ 3:01 pm
Hey Andrew,

Huge fan and own everyone of your products.

On another note, there is a scene in Oceans 13 that has a computer operator that looks exactly like you. Did you ever have a small part in the movie as a fill in? The reason I ask is because the special effects is reminiscent of your style. Just curious If you like I can take a snap shot of it so you can see what I am talking about.
Yko
September 30th, 2009 @ 3:04 pm

You know what my favorite part of this was?

The end.

And not in the mean way, but you go from doing an outro, to the player resetting with it's default BG snapshot of you as if some hot supermodel just walked in the room.

So we go from an animated Kramer to a still-shot of his eyes buggin out. :) Classic.

You have no idea how strange it is seeing a real live human saying the words "Hey whats up, this is Andrew Kramer for..Video copilot.....dot net."

Its surreal.

TT
September 30th, 2009 @ 6:56 pm
MAN! Really. You can try enter in t-shirts business or maybe monkey business, but trust me, don't try enter the humor business, you are the best man in VFX world, IN vfx world! Not Humor :) (its a joke, tried like yours)

September 30th, 2009 @ 6:58 pm
Hey Mr. Kramer whats the name/brand of that mic? Thx
Vizion
September 30th, 2009 @ 7:00 pm
If we could have a poll on this vs written blogs, I'd think the majority would vote for video. Now that isn't to say we should eliminate written blogs... Kramer, you have written a lot of blogs that are very rich in information and I really appreciate all of em including the ones with some expressions we can use, etc. I like these video blogs though; gives a lot of feelings :)!
JB
September 30th, 2009 @ 7:10 pm

hey the video blog thing is cool
simple question:

WHAT CAMERA DID YOU SHOOT IT ON?
AND WHAT KIND OF MIC DID YOU USE
WAS YOU RUNNING IT THROUGH A MIXER TO GET SUCH BASS

thanks alot
October 1st, 2009 @ 9:09 am
Hey Andrew.
Is your new product Optical Flares able to create your own Flares?
And can I use my own Jpeg Pictures for the Lens Flare Core?
That would be really awesome, because you could draw your Lens Flares in Photoshop or could photograph theam (Real Ones) and load them into your Plugin.
I'm really excited!

The only thing I would add is a backlight. Perhaps, move the blue light from the right and use it as a backlight, thus adding a little more professionalism to your v-blog.

Rock on!
October 1st, 2009 @ 11:23 am
What's up Andrew! The new plugin sounds really cool! With action essentials 2, check out what I created.

Where is the link to this video that's all the rave? All I see is the picture of AK at the mic and the paragraph explaining the update. I searched the site but still no link or video. Could be my dial-up?
October 1st, 2009 @ 4:41 pm
You know.. this clip actually makes me wonder what kinda mic that exactly is... first time i'm intrested in something other then VFX on this site :P

Optical Flares, sounds Great! I've seen this cool effect on "Fringe" and always tried to imitate the effect but I'm always gettin' nowhere, hehe. Can't wait to have that new plug-in, thanks videocopilot for always making our life a lil easier,
October 1st, 2009 @ 7:07 pm
Yes, 300!

Love the blue light.

I recall seeing the Quick Matte pop up in one of the tutorials (although it went unmentioned, I believe) and I have been awaiting its arrival ever since...

You do have a photogenic face (with equally good voice of course) . . Ever thought of acting in the movies???

Actually you should be sending your next video link to George Lucas . . like you have a new weapon (innovative as you are) in your hands, slashing the screen into pieces to reveal something (use your imagination) . . .

. . . and you what - you might be the next Jedi Knight (on VC Dot Net). :)

Andrew, are you now mocking me because I used to call into your late night radio show? You told me you believed. Now, I will go back to trusting no one.

Fight the future Andrew. When you make all these cool products you are actually accelerating the future.

Like the blue light, but you should move it to the left, to the other side of your head to create a better back light.
October 2nd, 2009 @ 4:33 am
Hey man good job with the video and (pause) stuff. I like it :)

I hope to see more more of these videos in a weeks to come.

Coming... More News and Videotutorials xD. Thanks!
October 2nd, 2009 @ 12:21 pm
Andrew- so you mean to tell me I no longer have to set expressions on my masked solids to create those gleams off my lens flares?

Sometimes plug-ins are bad news for artists. Is it really a good idea to make such awesome effects possible with only a few easy clicks? It takes the skill and talent out of AE artists. With that said, looking forward to the release. ;)

The video update is cool- but I was a little wierded out watching you talk to me rather than just listening. Keep it up- by the way how many takes before you got it all right in one take?

Best-
your 428,213th fan

Your not in the T-Shirt business...But YOU SHOULD BE!
The guy above says he's your 428,213th fan. If that were true and you sold 1 T-Shirt to each fan at $17 a piece thats....
$7,279,621!!!
If everyone bought a T-shirt that is. I certainly want one. And I think I represent the demo well. Nerdy.... 'Nuff Said. 'bout T-Shirts
Lens flare thingy is cool as well.. I guess. No JK it is. But t-shirt, yes t-shirt...

October 3rd, 2009 @ 7:46 am
Andrew, and team,
After following your tutorials for a good while,and learning many of the technics you teach,(Thanks so much), I still find myself wondering about things like your settings in the latest video , the codecs used, the camera,and mics etc. Maybe you could include that "metadata" in the future? Or mabe I need to dig deeper in VC's site, Just a thought. The "show" idea seems to be a natural evolution for you. I enjoyed your video "interview" as well. Congrats on all your sucsess!
October 3rd, 2009 @ 8:36 am
Great Idea Andrew! Its always hillarious to listen to your voice when you do a tutorial.. so visually, its even better! very dry, slapstick type humor! You da man!

October 3rd, 2009 @ 12:30 pm

I remember you had a video podcast before. Any possibility in turning this "project" into something that can be available to download as an RSS feed for my iPhone? You could obviously use it to drive traffic to your site...

Hi Andrew Kramer
I really appreciate your work, I consider you a genius in after effects.
I wonder what the expression that was used in the transition of the textures in the video presentation of Evolution. Just 20 seconds of video.
Thank you, I'll be very happy if you can help me!

Yo! Andrew the new Plugin Camera tracker is wicked, this would bring a sigh of relive for many. Thumbs up for You and Your Team. My After fx CS4 wouldn't Play sound, why Plase Need advice(creativegenome@yahoo.com)and Please would love you to do a tutorial on the effect in the the glass effect and an effect in the Chapter displays on the serie "Hero", which i am thinking is a masking effect.Thanks Pal.
July 20th, 2011 @ 1:09 pm
Question for u guys: Can you export your camera solve (from camera tracker) into 3dsmax or cinema 4d or blender? I ask because I love the ease of using the tracker but need to still use the 3d proggies for getting the models lit etc...
