Working through the night…

I’m just finishing some fx for a client that are taking a little longer than expected but things are looking good now. I’ve got some fun tips and info I’ll be posting on the blog in a slightly new format for short screen recorded tips. I’m also getting the rest of my project elements together for an exciting look at bar graphs in After Effects. (Trust me it’s more fun than it sounds)

September 8th, 2009 @ 9:37 pm
Can't wait to hear some tips!
September 8th, 2009 @ 9:45 pm
cool! are you able to share with us what that work is so that we will know it when we see it?
September 8th, 2009 @ 9:56 pm
Oh yes Andrew you are the man! The bar graphics will upgrade our presentation for schools and business! Thanks Andrew!
September 8th, 2009 @ 9:58 pm
Bar graphs huh. How fun can some bars really be? I guess we will know soon enough:) Thanks Mr. Kramer.

September 8th, 2009 @ 11:11 pm

September 8th, 2009 @ 11:28 pm

It's funny, animated graphs are what got me into motion graphics.
Plus, it's nice to know I'm not the only one working through the night.
September 9th, 2009 @ 12:11 am
I wish this one is one of the advanced tutorials, like tutorial number 95 about normal-map that really teach something.
September 9th, 2009 @ 12:18 am
I Know VC is a separated project, but why you don't post a showreel of your works Andrew? it would be really interesting!

why not a "how to make your Reel" for the 100st tutorial? where you show some tips for sound design, synchronization and merging projects files to make a freaking awesome reel!! not just an assembly of few renderings!
September 9th, 2009 @ 12:28 am
Rama, that's exactly what I was thinking about yesterday. I think Andrew should make a reel or something and overall show more of his work besides the tuts here on VC
September 9th, 2009 @ 12:33 am
What happened to your compositing tool Quick Matte?
Did you put it on hold or will it just take longer than expected? I remember you announcing its upcoming release on August 23rd.
September 9th, 2009 @ 1:17 am
Maybe tips, not tuts!
September 9th, 2009 @ 1:21 am
hey andrew, when is that video blog coming? :)
September 9th, 2009 @ 1:35 am
I don't know..... The picture really seems to be created in 3D. If you can make that in After Effects, Then You prove once more that you are the Best!

September 9th, 2009 @ 1:55 am
I don't know how bar graphs can be any fun at all!!
September 9th, 2009 @ 2:00 am
how about Quick mate?
September 9th, 2009 @ 2:10 am
Hey Andrew, are you at liberty to share any of your clients work with us? Would be interesting to see what kind of projects you work on a day to day basis.

Thank you
September 9th, 2009 @ 3:43 am
oh boy hehehehe can't wait to see it hehehe
September 9th, 2009 @ 4:18 am
Nightwork sucks, because then you sleep the whole day. I hope you find your rhythm Kramer...
September 9th, 2009 @ 4:51 am
Rama, great idea!! AK, 'how to make a killer reel' tut for 100.....awww nevermind, you probably already had an idea for 100 back @ 50....thanks for EVERYTHING!!!

September 9th, 2009 @ 7:37 am
Andrew you should make more visual fx tutorials. Motion Graphics aren't as exciting!

Thank you if you are reading this.

PS. Thank you if you aren't reading this!
September 9th, 2009 @ 7:39 am
FX for a client? So is it a big movie project? :)
September 9th, 2009 @ 8:13 am

I remember checking CNN news everyday and now I realize that VideoCoPilot is first thing I check everyday before news??? I think Andrew Kramer should run for President .. specially now, that he has broken to Oval Office too :)
Josh M
September 9th, 2009 @ 5:29 pm
Cool cant wait! Also, Andrew just wondering about the video blog or i think it was called the Video Copilot show and if that is still in the works. it sounded like a great idea and i hope its still on the way!
September 9th, 2009 @ 9:24 pm

September 9th, 2009 @ 9:29 pm

September 10th, 2009 @ 4:01 am
I'm not sure to understand anything, but I whant to give you many tanks for your work and yours tutorials, ever so gains.

I'll continue studing english...

September 10th, 2009 @ 4:35 am
Hmmm,...would this involve Datamator 1.5?
September 10th, 2009 @ 7:37 am
Why should je meed Datamator?
He'll probably just take his rendered out video file of a 3D bar graph increasing or decreasing and then to some time remapping by using slider controls and expressions or something similar.
As far as I recall Andrew never said anything about creating those 3D bar graphs from scratch in After Effects, only that he'll control them in AE to fit whatever statistics he wants to show without having to re-animate and re-render everything in 3D.
September 10th, 2009 @ 7:38 am
Of course "je meed" means "he need".
That's Sumerian.
September 10th, 2009 @ 8:18 am
This is good new i love new tutorials and its not every day you here good tips.
September 10th, 2009 @ 8:26 am
Sounds boring... "Not very good"
September 10th, 2009 @ 12:46 pm
yah....not vedy ghood

September 10th, 2009 @ 9:48 pm
Can´t wait for the tips and tricks....
September 11th, 2009 @ 2:45 pm
How do you choose which camera to use in your 3d projects (28mm, 35mm, 50mm...) and what are the differences between them ?

Thanks & Shabat Shalom, no ?

I'm looking forward to some tips when working with bar graphs. A good part of my job involves data visualization, and combining it with cool visual effects has proven to be an attractive mix!
