I don’t know what this is but I’m posting it. All I know is that it probably isn’t going to end well for Sam.

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 […]
Announcing Element 3D V2!
It has been a little over 2 years since the release of Element 3D V1 and I still remember it quite vividly. I recall staying up all night before the launch, trying to get everything done. I was nervous and excited.  My son Josh had just been born a week earlier and I was working from home at the time. […]
Element 3D V2: New Specular Model!
Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]

Of late Andrew has taken to experimenting a lot. Hope to see new ideas take wings. Iam sure this is going to be some mix of muzzle fire from Action essentials collection and some new technique about bullets.

It's funny that andrew offer alot of great tutorials and products, but he doesn't offer any greenscreen footage, i for one would love to buy some hd footage and use it to create a short or something, i wouldnt want it pre-keyed because i think the process of keying it out yourself is needed.

I hope andrew reads this and has a think about the idea :)

@Ryan Haury Though I'm sure Andrew would be able to key it perfectly on a red background, but the rest of us would most likely end up removing some of sam's skin and make him look kinda green-ish. The skin color contains a lot of red. Green is oposite of red, so that's why green screens are often used. However for this particular shot, I think a blue one would be the easiest.

Don't use a red screen. Red is way too present in skin tone and your subjects will end up looking like swiss cheese!

And hey, props to ya; you're practicing fingering (the muscular memory act of placing your finger alongside the side of the gun, with your finger off the trigger, in an attempt to prevent accidental discharges)

Sam's a well-trained fightin' machine.

because of the green and blue tints in the clothing, would you ever want to shoot on a red screen in this case?
