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 […]
Pixel Screen Experiment!
Here is a fun experiment I created to simulate cool LCD Pixel effects using built-in plug-ins only! It uses the Camera Lens Blur effect along with a depth map to create realistic DOF. Watch Breakdown on Youtube Download Project File (CS6) Sound FX Created with MotionPulse!

Like to say thanks for the tut. I did it in like 45 minutes to see how hard it was, but its not, your tuts are really good. Here are my glass orbs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vF035AkqDM.

It would be cool if you could do a tut on fireman.

hey!
You just recreated the fresnel effect on the reflections...
Really nicely althought.
Keep an eye on the fact that the fresnel effect is applied
on the object on its surface that is front the camera, so not always in the middle ( here of the sphere ).
Really impressive and creative eye, you got there !
as always. And bye bye.

Hi Andrew!
I´m from the Basque Country and though I´m an actor, I like editing or compositing video.
First of all congratulations for your GREAT WEBSITE! The best I´ve found by far on After effects, editing and compositing.
I´ve done almost all of your tutorials (100! OMG!)
and this was fantastic! looks very realistic and there´s nothing... wow.
I did the Glass Orbs tutorial and after that I tried something a little bit twisted. I transformed the Glass Orbs into Palantirs from the Lord Of the Rings,and made the background more Mordor... ish.
I´d like you to see it in Vimeo and let me know what you think. This is the link:

Congrats, Andrew. My coworkers think I am good at work because I've studied (I still do) a lot about graphic design (2 years/Diploma*2000-2002) a lot of reading at barnes & noble and borders about image and video edition too...

BUT

I HAVE LEARNED SO MUCH FROM YOUR SITE (YOU AND YOUR TEAM).

PS: I am not rich right now but send me an email with your bank account & info (I haven't found a donation link on your site lol) so I can make a deposit/donation on it before February '10 and every time I use one of your tutorials. I believe everyone who is making money thanks to your tutorials should be thankful (monetary).

If anyone could offer some advice ...
I precomposed all the layers in the last comp, and added an additional adjustment layer to it (some darkening), and I cannot get the comp to render at all.
Is anyone else having difficulty rendering this output?

Many thanks!

That looks really amazing... not exactly sure of any practical use for it, seems like this would be easier and more photo realistic in Maya, but, hey, if it looks cool why not create it? Props for being able to do that in AE, truly impressive. I can't honestly say I could go that intensely photo-real from scratch in a compositing program.

lmao at the Mavis Beacon. I hated that typing class!

Anyway, thanks for all 100 tutorials, and a great year in visual effects!!!

PS: This tutorial seemed... like there wasn't enough "teaching" involved. It was a little bit too fast, and for some reason, I pictured you making this tutorial alone at 1:00 AM just rushing it to go to bed. But hey, other than that, GREAT!!! Lol!

PPS: I'm starting to get into animating cartoons. Do you think you could do some tutorials on making cartoons in after effects?

Thank you so much!
