Tron Project and Walk-Through

Holy Monday batman! I decided to release the Tron-Pilot Project file created in After Effects with a short video walk-through. I talk about creating the 3D text and building a few expressions. It doesn’t demonstrate every little detail but it should be enough to help you through the project file. For the background blur, try using a photo of a city with the After Effects lens blur.

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.

I definetley enjoyed this "tutorial" even though i'm curious about the look of the real text. Andrew somehow worked with masks and alot of vegas+glow effects. I can't figure out how to change the "video copilot" to my own text since i don't understand what the masks are for.

Andrew I've just started learning nuke, and I realise that you concentrate on motion graphics as opposed to compositing; but seriously, I suggest you pick up a node based program and show us some proper compositing. I mean AE can do it, but it just doesn't compare to the likes of Foundry Nuke. Just a suggestion...

Hello
another great one Mr. Kramer, i saw another expression to do the same thing but it was a hell of a book (i mean too many lines), but this one was a tiny cool one, Thank you very much. and i came up with an expression to make the opacity to be decreased as i duplicate it and make a gradual fade out along the axis. Here it is:

value+[index-100]*-1-[index*write any value you want here, this defines the step of opacity differences between two layers]

and if you can enhance it (that you can for sure) please post it so we'll use it.

Thanks in advance

Vegas! Damn it why didn't i think of vegas. I almost cracked it. i made it 90% similar except for those lines running through the extrusions! i used Trapcode's Form and got 95%similar results but it either had too strong effect or too scarce look. Plus i know u majorly use the built in efects and that why i was banging my head on my table thinking how to do this with built in effects.

Awesome TUT!!! Thankyou VERY MUCH!!! Does anyone here know an AE tutorial for creating the Tron Light Streak effect that emits light ribbons off the bikes on TRON LEGACY? ( I guess Im asking alot huh? LOL!) I watched the VCP tuts on light streaks 1 and 2 here at VCP, but they do not show how to emit these light ribbons off text objects or graphic objects... Any help is appreciated please email me at wildcard2127@yahoo.com Thanks. Thanks again VCP and if you made a good tutorial on this Im sure we would be in your debt forever and we would all subscribe for it too... TANKS!

Andrew, I must humbly beg of you...

Please make a tutorial, please.

I never download project files, it goes against my technique. And your tutorials are always so dang awesome. I can learn such awesome things by going through them several times, deviating a little bit more each time to get something new.
I would be indebted to you for a rather long (though unspecified) period of time, should you make a tutorial out of this.

Much respect.

Hey Andrew
First, I'd just like to thank you so much for posting this for us
I have two questions though, both may seem weird or vague
First, what font are you using, cuz I'm pretty sure that it's not typograph pro
Second, how do you actually make it look good? I know its vague, but I'm just a young teenager getting started in After Effects, and when I made this, it looked really bad and fake, the lines were too rigid, colours too weird, etc, so I was wondering if you could give me (the entire video copilot community) a few tips on just generally improving both our motion graphics and our video FX skills, just to polish our finished product
Thanks so much again for being such an inspiration to me and the rest of our community, keep on working :-)

    Try to download the project again. It does use Optical Flares and you will see an error message if you do not have that plug-in. But just disable the "Optical Flares" Layers and it should work. Also It may be using a font that is not available but you can change the font to something else like Arial.

You are the man,

But my good man, can you please publish a tutorial strictly on expressions, from the basics to the more advanced. What I mean here is, e.g. when should I know when to use wiggle, time, and the rest of the other complex stuff, if you know what I mean. If could list a few examples such as e.g again, time; when you are trying to blah blah. Wiggle, when you are trying to blah blah.

Get the the point. I have noticed that once one understand expressions, after effects rocks.

I tried to listen to other online tutorials about this and the guys are just lousy, it's like a physics lesson.

You tutorials are the best.

But any

awesome job andrew. I was wondering how you managed to get the extrusion on the layers. Thought you might have used form and the ofset the time of the animation. Good tip though. Oh BTW where did you get the expression for the comp copy?

    Definitely enjoyed seeing how you went about your extrusion technique. It's interesting to see how many ways you can go about doing the same thing. There's another expression off the top of my head for extruding text in AE that uses a similar process (adding the expression to the position, duplicating layers and leaving the uppermost layer without an expression) . I'm sure you've seen it around.

    >>
    thisComp.layer(index-1).transform.postion+[0,0,1]

    It'd be nice to see a tutorial based on extrusion expressions like this one and theone you used. Just a thought haha!!
