Hello Everyone,

First of all, Great Package, just the font alone was worth the price, thank you much. The Blinding preset is coming in very handy.

I wanted to alert you about Text layers and obscuration of layer objects using the optical flares and it simply was not working.... Finally figured it out, I do not know the reason why, but a Text layer does not behave the same as a solid in this case. I tried generating outlines, or shapes from the text, but these did not work either. So finally I placed my text in a precomposed layer and used the text comp as my obscuration layer... that was the work around.

Andrew,

Great update to a fantastic product. We've been using it everyday since you released it and it certainly ads dimension to our spots.

I did notice that in the included tutorials for Pro Presets 2 you're applying Optical Flares to grey solids.....I typically use a black solid.

Any special thought process behind your use of grey?

Cheers,

Albert

    I should clairify that I noticed your use of grey solids in the included templates, not tutorials.

Quick question, was the 3d text made in a 3rd party 3d program? Or with an AE Plugin? I'm looking for a AE plugin to create 3d text but have no idea where to start looking.

WOW. I love it. i took my breath away. but TYPOGRAPH video made my brain explode. thanks Andrew for learning me AE from basics but for most important thanks for still showing me the way i should go with the details, creativity, tempo and all that thing there is in motion graphics and vfx. you learned me for free so the only way for me to say thank you is to buy your ideal products. im so glad to do it that you wouldnt believe. its one of not so many win win situation that you created... thanks for this, for that, for everything. you learned me the way to feed my family. no more to say...
