Galactic Orb

I’m brewing up a new motion graphics tutorial that features a super-zoom from the inside of this galaxy ball left over from the movie Men in Black or somewhere. It’s got some interesting tips for creating energy unlike anything we have done before, plus all effects done inside of After Effects. Stay tuned!

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: 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 […]

Hi, andrew. I suggest that you should start a competition between videocopilot viewers. I've seen a lot of videos that was similar(very similar) to yours and i hate it because they were not original(yours is). I think it's going bad this time since they lost the creativity and all they do is depend on your ideas.

AND BOOM!!! like a genie from a lamp, you appear to save the day. Your efforts are very much appreciated. Thank You.

Listen, I have thought up other way for a logo of the Tron. We can make each letter in a separated layers with 3D Invigorator plug-in... Each letter will become in 3D... And Then we mix it by the same. Also we add a glow...
And here our Logo!)))) And also we can add a distortion

if you guys can't wait for the Tron tut here's one simply way you could do it:

> create the Tron logo in Adobe Illustrator_ you'll have put each letter on a separate layer;

> import the graphic into AE and make each letter 3D layers;

> add a camera and animate each letter in Z space and mess around with the rotation properties;

> colorize your font if you like with AE's 'Fill' filter;

> add some glows on the logo and some Video Copilot lens flares in the background;

> turn on your motion blur button for each letter so you get some blur as your logo flies into frame.

> place an adjustment layer to the top of your comp and add a 'spherize' distortion filter. this will give you the cool warpy look as the logo exits the frame.

That's it. Ofcourse if you want some thickness to your logo
you could always duplicate a few times and lower the opacity.

For those of you who are curious about how he did this:
CC particle world with a negative velocity, line particles, possibly multiple particle systems, some fractal noise and a CC sphere combined with some turbulent distortion as well as more particle systems and fractal noise behind the sphere, probably quite a bit of tint and curves for colorizing and a some glow shaders, most likely stacked to create the strong smooth energy feel.
The first part seems to have one large fractal field with an animated scale property and a CC particle world on top and then a CC sphere or CC circle on top of that for the bright white glow in the middle.
sweet work, can't wait to see what techniques and little tricks he uses

hey andrew im a big fan and im just curious i watched this over and over again so amazed but i remembered some other things you thought me and is those light streaks just kind of like the sparks in tutorial 65 or 66 i think but in revers instead of going out it goes into the middle and the gasses are just new layers that you put as red and black like in your tutorial on that globe where you made that smokey lookk
and you added some things from optical flares and that orb is just like the glass oorb tutorial sorry if its the comments long and is the the blue and red things just outside the orb like the light thing in the earth tutorial but instead u mask it out and that part that kind of circles the orb is like the planet explosion but you mask it out to give it that effect omg this comments really long please reply if im right in some of these :) im just wondering since i watched all of your videos and you always say that puting some of the videos together would be a good idea oh and can i ask what uni or college i can go to for video editor i know i kind of have a long way till i go to university since im only 13 :/ but still i would like to know what would be the best to go to like where you went again im so sorry for the long comment i hope you agree to post it in the comments box and can i ask what if my computer has a problem and everything gets wiped out and i bought one of your products well my parents for and i downloaded it instead of the dvd can i re download it or do i have to buy it again since i always have problems with my computer thanks andrew big fan :) and a late Happy New Year

here's how i think he did it:
1 big lens flare,
2 particle system... trapcode or AE's 3D particle,
3 distorted noise fractals duplicated several times and
make them 3D layers,
4 animation trucks hard in Z space,
5 another big flare,
6 one final noise fractal with an AE spherized plugin to created the orb,
7 some standardize glows and some outrageous color and
viola!

pretty sure he used some some sweet and sour pork somewhere.hehe

Let me guess, smoky texture (possibly fractal noise) coupled with cc sphere effect, overlayed a couple of times with different evolution settings (to create the reflection). Then you did a couple particular effects, w/ motion blur, zoomed the camera in, keyframed to zoom out. You added Optical Flares along for the ride, some generic smoky textures (for the energy inside), and bam. There you have it. Energy; Orb.

Another fine taste of some consistently great work and creative talent - truly inspiring.
(Just a continued plea that there be a CS3 version of the tute - if effects allow, for those of us struggling with old tech)

Andrew

I cant even begin to express my gratitude to you for this monster of a site,let alone a n inspirational training resource.you are truly a god amongst AE men and i pray you never leave us.

Im super excited about this new TUT as its something i have always wanted to do but didnt know where to start.

Do you think that at some time in the future you could expand on this universe effect and make a TUT that shows us how to create space scenes along the lines of what we see in sci-fi movies like star trek and aliens? planets atmospheres nebulas etc? anything like that would be greatly appreciated.

best to you,your fam and the VC crew!

    Wow, looks awesome! Definitely can't wait to hear the new random comments from Andrew.
    I tried to pick on what Andrew did but I just have a rough idea of what all took to make this.
    I see:
    CC Particle World
    Fractal noise
    CC Sphere
    mhmm, I like how you made the flashes on the sides to make it more dramatic! Did you used solids, and added a glow and changed the transform mode? (OF)?
    Anyways, it looks really good!
    THANK YOU for bringing us these great products and tutorials!

    I always try to be the last one to comment but people after me keep adding comments and it would be rude to keep posting but to get on topic. I was just making a cool clip using Optical Flares pro presets 2 and for everyone that reads this you're missing out on something great if you don't buy it from VC.
