January 1st, 2010 @ 7:41 pm
Actually, I'm not very keen on Lens Flares, but I'm looking forward to your promo video, you do it like those tv commercials that makes me want to have that product, how do you do it, Andrew?

Happy 2010 to everybody!!!!

PD: In the First page of the website at the bottom, in the "Newest tutorials" the last one is missing.
January 1st, 2010 @ 7:43 pm
this is all very very quite similar to the visuals seen in Star Trek.
not just this plug-in, but almost everything on your website...i like it
January 1st, 2010 @ 6:43 pm
Happy New Year! Can't wait to see what Video Copilot will be rocking this year!

January 1st, 2010 @ 8:05 pm

January 1st, 2010 @ 8:27 pm
Happy new year Andrew.Thanks for tell us optical Flares Release date.
January 1st, 2010 @ 8:35 pm
Hopefully i will have enough to buy it because the lens flares in after effects are really not flexible. They don't blend in that much.

Optical flare here I come baby, Kramer you re the boom!
January 1st, 2010 @ 9:08 pm
if you're about to have a big year then stop reading this and get to work.
i should stop writing stupid things for 2010 also,
but unfortunately, that's in my wishlist for 2011,
for 2010 i know a thing called flares from a guy of
Sedonia called Andrewvithy Kremeritovitchy aka AK47-AE-C47,
a big weapon as you guess ...
so ... you'll have to be patient until 2011
and accept my stupid comments. Life is hard.
Have fun during all 2010. Best.
January 1st, 2010 @ 9:13 pm
"WOW" can i say "WOW" i mean "WOW"
January 1st, 2010 @ 9:17 pm
The moment many have been waiting for has finally revealed itself to the masses!
January 1st, 2010 @ 9:33 pm

Hello, my name is Sérgio, i'm Portuguese!

Hello Andrew, and all fans of VideoCopilot.
I wish Happy New Year to All!
I am anxious to have the next plug-in, The Optical Flares!
Andrew I want you to know that you are the person who teaches me, and inspires me, Thank you for your simplicity and willingness to teach others!
Much success to you and all your team!
I liked to working with you in the near future!
Brett Perry
January 2nd, 2010 @ 7:13 am
Good news indeed, Andrew. I downloaded the 3D Flare bete from Red Giant for Knoll LF Pro. It will be interesting to see what difference there is between Optical Flares and Knoll's 3D Flares. I'm sure I'll have to have both in my toolkit. Happy New Year and thanks for all the work you put into your site and knowledge you share.
January 2nd, 2010 @ 7:14 am
cooooooooooool Happy new year everyone!!

The 1st good thing to look forward to in the new year. Happy Days to come!
January 2nd, 2010 @ 11:40 am
Excellent news Andrew !

I can't wait to see how powerful this new product is. I already found "Action Essential 2" very useful and relevant, I'm sure "Optical Flares" will not disappoint me.

By the way, happy new year to the Video Copilot Team.

PS: As Luke asked a few messages before, what font is used in the title image ?
January 2nd, 2010 @ 12:15 pm
Happy New Year Andrew and for all the videocopilot's moderator and users
January 2nd, 2010 @ 12:22 pm
Very cool, Andrew! Been looking forward to this since you first announced it! Hopefully maybe it will have faster render times than some of these other optical filters, but who knows. I'm sure it's very complex algorithms and stuff...
January 2nd, 2010 @ 12:28 pm
I cant wait to buy it
andrew happy new year
January 2nd, 2010 @ 12:32 pm
That's AWESOME!!!!!
That's weird to have a "1" between two "0"
Happy New Year Andrew!
January 2nd, 2010 @ 12:53 pm
Lookin' forward to it, Andrew.

And a happy new year to everyone. :p

Great news. Is glorious day with you here. Can you teaching us how to fit pepsi can in the anus.
January 2nd, 2010 @ 1:41 pm
nice nice. whens sure target coming out.
January 2nd, 2010 @ 1:50 pm
WOW!!!! that cool!!! I need this so much!!! ^^,
January 2nd, 2010 @ 3:35 pm
Happy New Year To All!!!

Can't wait for the release!

But ehh... Andrew, you said in one of your video's when you reach tutorial #100 it'll be downhill from that point. Well, you reachted #100, but is it going to be downhill from now?

Because I would love to have some more techy and handy stuff, I dont need EVERY tutorial to be filled with an awesome effect, perhaps a little side-series like you did with basic training. And then in that serie's how we keep everything organised and all that kind of stuff. Perhaps some expression tutorials because the one in the basic training section is a little too basic. I can do the basic stuff like wiggle and time*... but i don't get the more advanced stuff!

Happy New Year Once Again!
January 2nd, 2010 @ 4:51 pm
coooooooolllllll...great great great thx for all tutorials
January 2nd, 2010 @ 4:53 pm

What about quick matte?
January 2nd, 2010 @ 8:46 pm
AK, I hope you in the new year can make a better AE effect, I am from China, and some video effects can not be watching and hope you will allow the effects of China's producers watch your AE teaching video, thank you!
January 2nd, 2010 @ 8:47 pm
January 2nd, 2010 @ 9:20 pm
Dude...that's amazing!!! How much is it going to be? I have everything you ever made except Action Essentials 1...I have 2...but I totally am getting Optical Flares. Thanks for everything, I did an intro with your stuff from evolution and riot gear and it might be on the discovery channel just so you know, the show is called "The Green Economy".
January 2nd, 2010 @ 9:46 pm

Any idea on how much it will cost?
January 3rd, 2010 @ 3:53 am
yeahh, we all admire your work, even without knowing any detail, whether it is stable, whether it could catch up with Knoll (in particular with 3D Flare),etc. that all does not matter at all.......no, the vague commercial is enough for hysterical worship, yeaahhhh
January 3rd, 2010 @ 3:55 am
Is it sacrilege?
January 3rd, 2010 @ 4:54 am
Happy new year!

thx a lot for all this things that you put here....i cant wait to buy it =)

Peace & Love....

Hey Andrew .. can you show us still images of the types of real world lens flare you where able to re-create?

Did you also study old school camera lenses for this plug-in.

It might be too late but it would be cool if we could have a real lens icon and associate that icon with a perticular lens flare effect :-)

anyway good luck with this plugin... Knoll light is the king in the movie/commercial industry. I hope that you achieve great success with this and go beyond the features that Knoll light 3D is "trying" to offers.

p.s: I just took a look at the OF preview video , and the interface looks a little to big meaning too fat.. it seems to take up alot of the screen space, let's hope that it's fun creating Lens flare in it ... thanks

Whoa this product looks very cool.. :D
But hey Andrew.. I was watching Stark Trek's Directors Commentary and they were talking about that Andrew Kramer "This 23 year old kid I found online.. and he is a brilliant guy" made the title in the beginning of the film and the Credit list in the end.. Are they talking about you.. Did you make the title in the Star Trek film :O
If that is so then I want to congratulate you!
And whoa that is just amazing..
And it looked like you used Optical Flares in this title..
This title looks very nice.. =D
Great job!

Happy New Year to all at Video Copilot. And thank you Andrew for the ever consistent hard work and effort. It disappoints me that people have such a demanding attitude as to the release dates of products such as this. I myself have been impatiently waiting, but that's still no reason to actually complain to you about it, I know you're doing your best. I acknowledge your work and your effort and I am humbled that a man such as yourself is taking the time to give us the know-how and tools to produce quality at a professional standard. Thank you.
