Just watched "Skyline". A lens flares orgy!!! And a funny classic sci-fi movie.
January 16th, 2011 @ 10:36 pm
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.
January 18th, 2011 @ 8:06 am
Andrew... I don't have Online banking facilities.. whats the best way for me to buy?? Optical flares, one of my fren in foreigh gifted me!!
January 21st, 2011 @ 2:49 pm

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?


    January 21st, 2011 @ 2:55 pm
    I should clairify that I noticed your use of grey solids in the included templates, not tutorials.
January 24th, 2011 @ 10:17 am
Very nice Andrew ! so what's the music in the trailer ? i love it ! THX
January 26th, 2011 @ 7:18 am
just bought it. now have all the VC products. This is great i like the tutorials. very cool.
Good job guys. Oh, loving Glamour aswell.
Thanks guys

January 29th, 2011 @ 6:33 am

February 3rd, 2011 @ 5:30 pm
Awesome, bought it this weekend. This will become handy for my band's promotional videos!
February 4th, 2011 @ 9:18 pm

Any tips to how Alex made his text bend & deform in his promo video? I've been trying to figure it out in C4D

February 18th, 2011 @ 4:53 pm
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.

March 15th, 2011 @ 5:53 am
J.J. Abrams really liked the OPITCAL FLARES...i guess he is using way too much...check it out:

Hi! I'm just dying to know the name of the music that I heard in the Typograph promo video. At the end of the video.
