Action Essentials 2 Spotted in Fox Promo

I couldn’t find the exact video I saw on TV but here is one of the promos for a show called Human Target on FOX. The design has a slick scope effect with some well-composited explosions and smokey hits that melt right into the design. This graphics package is a great example of using stock elements transparently within the design. In fact I didn’t even recognize it until I combined curiosity with my DVR recorder and played it back in slow motion :) There was a more elaborate 3D fly-through in the version I saw but I thought I would share this one anyways.

Action Essentials 2 is our HD stock footage collection with over 500 elements that is great for compositing AND motion graphics!

I was watching the star wars marathon on spike tv over christmas and they had a contest for homemade star war videos. The video that got picked by George Lucas in its credits used the exact replica of the Surge Target preset. Same orange background and all.
5 years ago
It was done by Roger LA ( http://roger.tv )

I art directed the design phase, and the final is a hybrid of some of my designs and some other stuff. I came up with the scope idea, but I can't take credit for any of the production. The promo you probably saw is one where a bullet is flying through a kind of SportsCenter-y warehouse space and hits an image of the main character which turns out to be a paper target, no?

Well, this post is probably buried by now, but there it is if you're interested! :D

I have been seeing more and more Video Copilot products and even tutorials on TV. Some local news stations around here in Spokane Washington and now I'm starting to see some stuff on the History Channel. Yeah the History Channel. Tutorial #89 Soft Shadows. The History channel has the almost the exact same thing except it says Holiday Greetings(or something like that). But the animation and colors are almost exact. But I have to say I'm not the least bit surprised. Andrew has a great talent in AE. I love watching his tutorials. I bought the "The Bullet" a few months ago and it was spectacular. Thanks for all your hard work.

maybe Andrew stole his effects from that movie and now he is claiming that they used his effects....it's all a Hoax.....i have to look for a new hero now lol ((-:

Today i made a beautyfull graphics chart file for my work ( i work at THE local tv station of Amsterdam)
...and it works like a charmmmmm....saves me loads of time.
i did found one thing kinda weird thou...and that is when you set theMax Value to 100%...and when you change the graphic...sometimes it does not match the percentages.
for example when i make a 25 % a 50% and a 75% than the 25% graphic looks like a 10%....so it does not match.
what i do now is i type in the number myself....because the number does not match the graphic...anyways it's not a pain to type in the number by hand

Congrats AK! I'm sure you'd knew that you would find those everywhere on TV broadcast.
Design houses would have to be crazy not to have your packages in their arsenals, no matter how big of a studio they are.

I was tagging those locally for my employer, I thought they were yours Andrew.

I'm guessing that they also combined a couple of your other tutorials and Riot Gear in there as well. Note the fly-through of the rifle boresight with the depth of field to the title.

You said once that you wanted to see people combine and adapt your tuts for their own purposes (paraphrase); this is a wonderful example of that. Gratz dude!

I've already seen some Footages of Action Movie Essentials 1 in German TV and i think in the future there will be a few more moments where i think: "Oh yeah ame2".
But is in Modern Warfare 2 also something from your products like in the first part?

    Haha, I'm pretty sure Super 8 (produced by Speilberg and directed by JJ Abrams) has his optical flares plugin. Also, Tosh.O uses Action Essentials too.
