    Adam
    August 8th, 2011 @ 1:34 pm
    It's there new plugin "Optical Beards" coming out this fall,internet's a'buzz about it. lol :D

    It's way better than its predecessor, "Knoll Beard Factory".

    August 8th, 2011 @ 6:03 pm
    Optical Beards....LOL!
    August 8th, 2011 @ 7:18 pm
    @Adam. I am with Simon.
    August 8th, 2011 @ 10:58 pm
    Lmfao!.. shiny beards :D chocked laughing.. lol.
    August 8th, 2011 @ 11:40 pm
    I think almost everyone of us were surprised with that beard, it looks cool by the way. It added more age to Andrew :)
    Jay
    August 9th, 2011 @ 2:02 am
    The beard suits you!
    Max
    August 9th, 2011 @ 5:38 am
    Funny, indeed! :D
    But I think, as all of you probably did, that he builded his little set there, with the REAL beard still on his face. Then he shaved, builded the wall of bricks again, and shot the actual first sequence of this part of the video.

    Wow, what a long explanation for such an obvious thing. But somehow, I wanted to state that clear! :D

    Greatings from Germany! :)

    August 9th, 2011 @ 8:29 am
    OK the comment was funny but all the rest are just over kill
    August 9th, 2011 @ 10:02 am
    I'm pretty sure they used: Action Beard Essentials. Or maybe Riot Beard.
    August 9th, 2011 @ 10:05 am
    BUT! It could also be Red Giant's new plugin called Magic Beard Looks.
    August 9th, 2011 @ 5:42 pm
    Hey, I want one of those optical beards too! xD
    Alexandre
    August 10th, 2011 @ 8:45 am
    I know! they used Trapcode Beardticular 2.0, with faster rendering and more funtionnality!
Kubrixbeard
August 8th, 2011 @ 11:12 am
can't wait! tuts also? extensive use of element?
    Sebastiano Genna
    August 8th, 2011 @ 12:15 pm
    I think we ALL would really like so, but I sincerely doubt it (for the use of element, i mena),
    Btw Kubrixbeard has lighten up a quite interesting point: when will the new tutorial be online? Is there something in program?
    Kubrixbeard
    August 8th, 2011 @ 12:35 pm
    I'd love to see another dvd like the bullet, only this time about compositing live-action over cg sets.Blender's new builds are so much more user friendly these days since the bullet
    Kubixbeard
    August 8th, 2011 @ 12:39 pm
    Also Andrew....was all compositing done in AE? You mentioned in another post that you'd been doing some work with Nuke...
    Jack
    August 9th, 2011 @ 10:04 am
    More tuts on Blender?? that would be Awesome!

August 8th, 2011 @ 11:18 am
How long did it take you to build with those bricks?! You go from silky smooth to looking like Paul Bunyon in five seconds.
    August 8th, 2011 @ 12:23 pm
    Agreed! Hilarious though!
    August 8th, 2011 @ 12:28 pm
    HAHA!! no doubt pretty good motion track on the beard ;)
    Mike
    August 8th, 2011 @ 12:59 pm
    The beard is how Andrew always looks. When you have seen him clean shaven, it was vfx. Don't you guys know ANYTHING?
    Nathan
    August 8th, 2011 @ 9:21 pm
    Everybody knows Andrew can not grow a beard! This beard had to of been grown by Sam and then pasted onto Andrew.
    August 9th, 2011 @ 1:40 am
    It's the Wolverine!

August 8th, 2011 @ 11:19 am

Andrew with full beard. Awesome, now i can die happy.
Tommie
August 8th, 2011 @ 11:23 am
Aw, I wish I could grow such a glorious beard in a few hours. Unless thats just some crazy VFX you're doing there Andrew...
August 8th, 2011 @ 11:26 am
Love the beard trick. Good stuff, looks quite advanced.
August 8th, 2011 @ 11:27 am
That beard was majestic.
August 8th, 2011 @ 11:27 am
Nice job! I like the beard joke. :)

That's awesome, can't wait to see the full video and tutorial. Also, the beard shot was absolutely hilarious!
August 8th, 2011 @ 11:42 am
The fur cat-coat comment literally had me squirting milk out of my nose onto my entire screen.
    Dr. Brent
    August 9th, 2011 @ 11:56 am
    I hope you were drinking milk and it wasn't nose lactation. If your weren't drinking milk please see a Dr. soon as this could be a sign of hormonal imbalance. Take care.
Vida Andrew
August 8th, 2011 @ 11:43 am
I was amazed when I saw the scene lighting made in 3ds max! please, can you show us Andrew, or just describe how did you achieve this great look?

The only problem with 3ds max is that.. it needs a week of rendering for quality stuff.
Tony
August 8th, 2011 @ 11:45 am
I hope your servers are ready for all the traffic you'll be receiving tomorrow. There are a lot of us, and we've been looking forward to this video more than anything being released in theaters :)
Nick
August 8th, 2011 @ 11:47 am
What program did you use to create the 3d set?
    Adam

August 8th, 2011 @ 12:33 pm
oh finally!!!! i've been waiting so long!! and i'm not sure if that beard is real, i would say that it definitely is but...talking about you... it might be CGI :)

Personally I would like to see more behind the scenes, but understandably that's probably pretty low on your priorities.
Looks great and I can't wait to see the finished video.

when is Element 3-D going to be released?
August 8th, 2011 @ 1:36 pm
The whole thing isnt about an orb at all, its for VCP's new hair and fur plug in for AE, why else would he spend so much time talking about the cat fur coat, or that sexy post production beard that he grew in no time flat.

Adrien Folly
August 8th, 2011 @ 2:48 pm
By the time I was waiting for this! It looks really good. I just have one question concerning the 3D input: I've already tried this technique, but it took me a while to render (2 days for ~30 sec.) and if I decrease the details (polys) the quality becomes kind of cra*py. Just wanted to know the good balance between quantity of polys and rendering time.

I guess that you're pretty busy and you probably won't have reply, so if anyone else can answer me I would be grateful.

btw, I loved the beard! :)

Ps: sorry for my bad english, I'm from Switzerland..

Hi, great job. Andrew could you please post a basic series tutorial on 3ds max? I think that will be great
David
August 8th, 2011 @ 4:08 pm
This going to great! Nice beard by the way, too bad you cut it off. Probably the wife’s request.
August 8th, 2011 @ 4:30 pm
Wouldn't you want the orb (or background) to be blue, wouldn't that make it a hell of a lot easier to chroma key?
chisomo
August 8th, 2011 @ 4:32 pm
Awesome vid. Nice withe beard trick. Still trying to figure out how you did it. I doubt you waited for it to grow and then just dressed the same. lol. Anywho, i'm goin' through Tutorial Withdrawl here! I needs my fix!
chisomo
August 8th, 2011 @ 4:50 pm
i figured it out.(the beard thing) Or atleast i know what i would've done. I noticed that shave was kinda fresh, as opposed to the stubble you have at the beginning of the video. I'm think you shot the bearded part first then shaved and shot the first part. As for the bricks. They were already arranged on the floor when you had the beard and you simply piled them up and rewound the footage. HAHA!(evil laugh) you thought you had me.
sNick
August 8th, 2011 @ 4:56 pm
Question. The Bazooka gum, did they sponsor the film hence product placement or is that the secret 'element' to your work?
apple boy
August 8th, 2011 @ 5:07 pm
Wahaha...! nice beard take. It looks good on you though, can you make a tutorial of that.. Ha ha... Can't stop laughing.. hahhaha... :) tnx AK
August 8th, 2011 @ 5:33 pm
Our whole team can't wait! We've watched this short post about 100 times looking at everything trying to figure out what you are going to show - "OH look see that is a motion tracking point for the CG set to pin to" - "OH OH see where they extended the mighty set a few bricks farther past the end of the scene!"

Yeah man this is EPIC for us who have learned so much from the people's champion - Andrew :)

All nice and dandy, one question though: How did you track your face to make the beard? I mean, that's clearly created with like jpgs or a particle system based on 1 hair, right? :)

Nice work, looking forward to it.

If your career in motion graphics doesnt give you all you want from it, at least you have a stone wall and patio trade to fall back on! Seriously very talented, although i think people should praise your team a bit more tho!!

Wow, really good stuff. Better VFX than some of the blockbusters of the past year. Exceptional how Andrew and everybody at VideoCopilot (give us a digital tour Andrew!!!) keep 2d VFX alive. A lot of films use 3d, and it looks obvious, but some of the work from VC is hard to label as 'fake'.

Can't wait!

    August 9th, 2011 @ 11:45 am
    Yeah, this has me going too since I did not see it yesterday and therefore the video that we DID see might be the video that he mentioned yesterday. So I'd say there was no video link yesterday and it showed today. :) Then from here, we follow twitter for when he releases the full movie.

Where did you get that ball to make an orb? I'd like to make something similar and was playing with the idea that I could get some green ball unfortunatelly I did not know it's actual selling until now.

I presume you did not make it by yourself, did you?
