I am really excited Andrew, I was always wondering why you guys didn't make a movie, I mean with your skills it would have been a great film or have you already made films?
greets from the Netherlands
May 4th, 2010 @ 3:40 am
Whoa.... Pretty exciting thing... ;)
But one question Andrew,
When is the release of your 64bit
version of Sure Target and VC Reflect?
and last thing... :) What about the Quick Matte?

Probably Sam would blow up inside the car, or the windscreen would shatter with a little optical flares on it!

Anyway...I would rly like to see this mysterious effect.

danny
May 4th, 2010 @ 5:59 am
uhm people, he said it's going to be a short film, not a movie. and that short film is just for demonstration purposes...to see the effect of an upcoming tutorial.

but great news! :)

Hm my guess is..that a plane will crash into the parking lot and hit sams car...just to, you know, stay realistic. :))

Nate
May 4th, 2010 @ 6:19 am
Very cool can't wait, Blowing Sam up right?
May 4th, 2010 @ 6:22 am
My prediction is that Sam finds an entrance to an underground lab ran by the FBI, only to realize it has been abruptly abandoned for a very scary reason...
HEY
May 4th, 2010 @ 6:24 am
Andrew, hi!
I saw Iron man 2, were Sam Loe there?

You got a Sam Loya in your comp! SO there will be some setting for wears, hairs, position of your Sam Loya!
:D
Joachim
May 4th, 2010 @ 6:56 am
I suppose the effect has something to do with Sam getting blown to smithereens? Poor Sam...

This is VERY exciting!

I’ll have to wait and see :P
Mark
May 4th, 2010 @ 8:35 am
Sam gets blown up (again), but this time for good. Awesome effects scene of Sam ascending to heaven, the large pearly gates open, angels lead Sam into a huge room streaming with pure light where Sam finds himself standing before the throne of...ANDREW?? [EEEEEevil laughter.] Hole opens up under Sam, free fall, explosions, flames, rivers of molten lava (but with lots of really nice sparkly floaty particles and dramatic lens flares.)

May 4th, 2010 @ 10:02 am
Sounds cool man. I've always wondered why you havnt stepped into the film business myself. You have some talents that producers would pay good money for.
May 4th, 2010 @ 10:11 am
Yeah, what happened to all the red promo footage- guns blazing and action sequences from action essentials two?
where did it go?

Dan
Diego G
May 4th, 2010 @ 10:13 am

May 4th, 2010 @ 10:53 am
I guess it will have something to do with camera thingies, but I'm not really sure. Looking forward to it! Also can't wait for 64-bit plug-ins. Because I installed AE CS5 and the plug-ins don't work, when later I discovered it only works for the 64 bit plug ins, but (I guess) why then Glow effect is 32?.

May 4th, 2010 @ 12:17 pm
I don't know what it is but I'm sure it involves Optical Flares and Sam getting hurt
May 4th, 2010 @ 12:20 pm
I assume it will be a shoot out, Car Explosion, or something involving Tino... doing something to Sam r helping him.
May 4th, 2010 @ 12:22 pm
I was watting for this, a short by Andrew K. that gonna be Awesome.

May 4th, 2010 @ 2:12 pm
well..my guess:

this mysterious effect is called "cut". this means you suddenly change the camera position, the scenery and sometimes even the point in time! :O

don't know how it works ._.

:P looking forward to it!
May 4th, 2010 @ 2:26 pm
Andrew, was this shot on the 7D?
Handel Eugene
May 4th, 2010 @ 2:38 pm
Somethings wrong with you people, get a hold of your selves, take action for your own learning, your drooling over every post this guy makes. It seems as if your relying souly on him. Begging him to help make you look good, I see post of people pleading for him to blow up a car, if you really paid attention to Andrew's Tutorials & studied After Effects then you would be able to challenge your self to do that Fx yourself but instead, your waiting for the next tutorial to come out instead of working things out yourselves. I come here and I get a good laugh of all the fakers in this community but it just saddens me the amount of what seem like dependent learners out there. Andrew is no different than anybody else, he just has more experience. Anybody can make a film, its going out & doing it and coming up with a creative concept that makes you good. Do it your self people, & use websites like this to inspire you and educate you, not to breast feed you for the rest of your life.

Hype Napungra
May 4th, 2010 @ 3:46 pm
I have to agree with Handel Eugene here, he makes a good point and makes it very well. We should all acknowledge how important this site, Andrew and his team have been in educating us but it's up the individual to take what they've learned and develop their own skills.

Stop asking stupid questions and go learn how to use After Effects, learn from what you're being taught and develop your own style instead of trying to be a clone. Andrew's a talented guy, let's just be content to find inspiration and education here.
May 4th, 2010 @ 3:56 pm
Hoping to see Sam with a jet pack!
May 4th, 2010 @ 3:56 pm
"Hype Napungra" and "Handel Eugene" are the same person and may I add are both wrong. There is nothing wrong with wanting to learn more from Andrew's tutorials and blog posts. We are not obsessed with him.

Hi Andrew, i think sam is gonna control the car with his mind power, which is more powerful then his body...lol. Hey sorry Sam, u r really a very good actor & i think u should try hollywood now as u r very famous in media (thanks to Mr. Andrew) & I can imagine you in 1 of the character in movie HANGOVER, seriously...take care

Matthew Sabia, you're completely wrong. I'm nothing to do with the guy who posted the original comment, I was simply agreeing with him. No one said there was anything wrong with learning from someone, it's the people who can only imitate what Andrew does who are being criticised. I'm entitled to my opinion just as you're entitled to yours so don't come on here claiming that I'm wrong just because your opinion differs from mine.

This site taught me the fundamentals of After Effects and without it I'd have been struggling. The difference is that I've taken what I've been taught and developed my own style although I continued to learn and be inspired by what I see here.

Just because two seperate people can communicate in proper English doesn't mean they're the same person.

Probably the car turns in a ghost car, and then Sam get's a huge flaming head and becomes the ghost rider.

May 5th, 2010 @ 2:26 am
I wonder if it'll use the plug in we saw in the previous tutorial ;) Remember, Andrew, you can never have too many chocolate monkey's in your film!
Jad
May 5th, 2010 @ 2:43 am
Hope it's gonna be something like Sam gets down of the car, a big earth quake and the whole parking roof fall on his head, lots of blood and then a halo from optical flares appears, Sam is back from the dead yeehee

May 5th, 2010 @ 2:56 am
I wondered how long it would be before the points raised by Handel Eugene were made. I am also not surprised by Matthew jumping to Andrew's defence - in fact, given his passionate following coupled with the somewhat caustic tone in the message, I would have expected even more of a reaction.

We all know that the vfx community is full of people that can follow a VCP tutorial and arrive at the same result as Andrew. The web is full of what are known as "Kramers" - copies of the tutorials, in many cases even utilise the same plate footage or image set. I wonder how many of these "vfx artists", when confronted with a different project or context, would be able to correctly identify the workflow and techniques required - let alone implement these to a comparable standard?

The problem is that, when working through a tutorial that is focussed on a pre-determined outcome, is that it is too easy to adopt a lazy style of 'rote' learning in which we move from step 1 to step 21 in the same way as a chimp is taught to perform a basic task such as making a cup of coffee. I guess the only way for individuals to measure their progress in vfx is, as Matthew states, to "set yourself a challenge", something like replicating an effect from a tv show or movie - and picking something that is not covered by an online tutorial.

Don't take my comments as an attack on VCP. I think the tutorials are great and Andrew is an exceptional talent.

Great post, thats whats I wanted to say but me no good english:oD
Andrew is great, Im big fan of him, and I dont except him to make tutorial on everything he do. there is enough tuts on this site to keep me going, my only wish is that he make include C4D in hes tutorials like he did in the latest, because Andrew told once in a tutorial video that C4D was the best of all 3d app to use with after effect.
I would love to see Sam in a real movie, what agreat artist he is!
best wishes.

I think it is invisible Sam. See the open door of car with no one around? I am now sure it is invisible sam effect.

May 5th, 2010 @ 7:05 am
Not meaning to add to Eugene's griping and soapbox ravings...it's more of a request really. I wish you would use Blender more for 3D tuts. Not everybody can afford 3D Studio Max or Cinema 4D or Maya. Blender is free and according to most, works the same as the rest.

Just my 2 cents,

I think that sam will press a button a key, and instead of unlocking the it, the car will shoot backwards towards him and he will get in.

i can learn many thing from you. i hope that one day , i must meet with you. i respect & love you so much.
May 5th, 2010 @ 11:28 am
I think this effect will be somthing got to do with the Dragon plugin, where sam get tired of the car not starting so he transform to a baby dragon and burn the car.
May 5th, 2010 @ 12:04 pm
This garage was featured in the submerged tutorial only. Good catch :)
andi
May 5th, 2010 @ 12:09 pm
i thought it was in submerged and the fight scene in the adobe encore one
May 5th, 2010 @ 12:24 pm
That fight scene was in a different city, though that one is the same one as the Action Essentials 2 training where the roof is collapsing on Sam.
vaguener
May 5th, 2010 @ 12:27 pm
Maybe some matrix transformation? Sam turns to some agent... or maybe some 3d mesh in the cars surface... it's killing me :)

Please Andrew, some "twixtor" tutorial :)

ANDREW FARRIS
May 5th, 2010 @ 2:03 pm
I thought you shot footage with RED around the time before the release of AE2, Looked Sam had a girl with him and a suit on and stuff. Looked like you were gonna make a short film showing what you could do with AE2.

I cant believe people are on here moaning! How could you possibly find a negative? Andrew K doesn't claim to be "the best" or a "god", we just like to think of him as such.
Andrew, you don't claim to be a god do you?

I think its funny that most posters ignored the silly comments.

Handel Eugene and others that are attacking people wanting to see more tutorials:
I think i can speak for alot of people when i say that we are not trying to just copy everything he does and take it for ourselves. with almost every tutorial, i watch what the final result is and try to create it myself. if i cant create it, i watch the tutorial and if i can, then i wont. One of these things, for me at least, is blowing up a car, ive looked on youtube at what others have tried to do on after effects and none have really been succesful and niether have i. im just know that andrew gives us new insight and innovation as to how to do this and other special effects effectively.

im not attacking Handel or anyone else in this message. they actually make valid points because some of the people that come to this site probably do just copy it and take it for themselves but i think that most of us do just come here to learn and the peolpe asking for more are the people that are excited to learn new effects and new techniques with after effects.

Andrew will finally reveal that Sam is just the product of a soon to be released plug-in that Andrew has been developing for the last decade.
May 5th, 2010 @ 6:50 pm
ill say that the roof would crash in.or sam walks away as his car explodes,or sam will become invisible,maybe like in super smash bros when u use the cloacker thing

May 5th, 2010 @ 7:59 pm
I can't wait to see it. Your tutorials are the best. So thankful for all the tips.

Just saw a hilarious video (link below) and could not tell if the lights used in the video were pro flares or knoll light- it looks like Pro flares since I also use this.

May 5th, 2010 @ 8:44 pm
You know there are a lot of people on this thread wanting Sam to explode. Don't you all think that's a little rude? The guy's been eaten by roaches, incinerated, smashed by a truck, and countless of other things and all you guys want to see is him EXPLODE?! How about a tut where he has a wonderful birthday, with cake, friends, and presents. Then he can implode. =]

héé andrew you is not making films because of the budget was very high, I offer them filmed in countries such as Algeria and you can be sure to have all my support, for example see this city as it is beautiful (Constantine-Algeria) I have a friend who has a box audio visual (production company) and I can be sure he can provide you listed (actor) and very nice places to do something like " The Scorpion King "which is filmed in Morocco, there are also north of town that are not in the dessert as" Constantine "I just want you to return the favor and open your other horizon
May 6th, 2010 @ 8:56 am
Quick Matte = Detox Dr. Dre?

Was hoping Sam never was in the parking garage but that he was put in afterwards with the use of Quick Matte in combination with Green Screen.

If that's the case this will be my fav tutorial of all times !!!!

May 9th, 2010 @ 12:59 pm
the effect is probably the enitre scene and sam - standing in front of a greenscreen - the only actual footage being used, lol :S

or be real, something with the windshield ... looks too good to be real. read as: looking a bit artificial, but good and probably better than a real one (that you probably wouldn't see anyways)

wow, i used the word probably (including this time) 4 times, but it sure feels like 100
Darklight
May 9th, 2010 @ 2:20 pm
emm, a short guess? Some spooky creature is coming on the reflection of the windshield (so actually in front of the car). Sam scares himself screams and everything turns black. Ofcourse with some dramatic sound of pro scores. either that or you're gonna use the new optical flares to make some headlights :D

Its going to be a fight scene, the car will transform into a massive robot and then Sam will hit it with his super powers, laser eyes and super strength, I really thing Sam will come out on top this time. Can't wait.

It would be cool, if Sam had to get out of the parking garage because it was exploding and crumbling behind him! So then he has to race out of the parking garage, in order to live!

I can't wait to see short and the behind the scenes footage!

Please, clarify in the end credits that no Sam has been injured or humiliated during the shooting... because creatures have also rights, you know?

loads of guesses, but i think SAM is gonna be drowned in a water filled car then frozen up... one of the two or both.
just like heroes.

Hello Andrew, I have been a fan of yours since for the last year now and I can't wait until your film comes out because you guys have some good work that shouldn't only be seen in tutorials, but your tutorials really help me out a lot and they are making me better at visual effects.

{hope (not begging) it will be one of these three:}
{1)a small plane crashes through the wall of the garage} {revealing a giant hole where sam stands in front of} {revealing a destroyed city.}
{2)a car comes screeching through and parks professionally} {next to sam.}
{3)sam presses a button in his car that transforms the} {wheels into small rockets propelling him out the garage at} {high speed(creating light with opticla flares)}

can't wait to see it!

Sam gets out of the car as the parking garage starts to collapse around him. Just then he is hit by a speeding Dodge pickup right before a meteor slams into the pavement. The resulting atmospheric disturbance causes Sam to get struck by lightning.... No, wait....

Nevermind.

May 14th, 2010 @ 6:29 pm
I'd imagine it has to do with freezing time. Based on the vids Andrew linked a couple weeks ago.
