I'm pretty sure this is the same pack that they used in Gotye's music video for "Save Me." I recognized it from when I downloaded this back in April :D
If it is, which I'm pretty sure it is, congrats! Though I don't know if any proper sourcing was done on the actual video... It's so weird that I could recognize the floating pieces of dust. lol.

I, um, love you. Um, yeah. ...Ok, maybe thank you would've just been enough. But, yes, I absolutely 2nd Timok's statement above. Absolutely!! You just don't know what your diligence, professionalism, knowledge, kindness, generosity, straight-forwardness, humor, help, and products (Purchased AND Free) have done, are doing, and will do for people. You have created sparks of purpose in people, to achieve something Great! And share it with others, of, both, like-mind & there just to be entertained. And your approach is what makes people keep coming back, as well as Credit You Highly, and refer people to you for your incredible work, displays of broken down techniques and delivery.
If you were in Front of me I'd tell you how I Really feel about you (and your team... no man works alone! :) ) and how much I truly appreciate this whole setup & what you do. You've changed the whole game, and gave/give others a chance. A chance to really grow in using these Massive Tools (AE, Photoshop, Premier Pro, etc.) that seemingly have no end to its useful features, stand-alone or when combined. Would hate to think that these programs are Beasts & can do So Much and for it to not be utilized the way it could be, by even the common person. Especially as they advance & upgrade within Themselves with each new release.
You really ARE our teacher. So, no really, once again... ...
THANKS ANDREW!! A True Master. At Heart and Creative Ability.

Help: I'm trying to create the ball dispersion effect, similar to what Andrew did with the "FIZZY" logo, the problem I'm having is that when I apply the cc ball effect it only disperses to a certain limit and does not take up the full screen...I'm sure it's an easy solution, but I'm still in the learning process, I would greatly appreciate it thanks everyone.

Hey Andrew as always awesome stuff! On way I use particles like these (that are on a black bg with no alpha, is to use the "unmult" plugin, I think it's by Red Giant, it works pretty well knocking out the black, then I can use a blend mode like overlay or add. Keep up the super work!

We managed to create around 2 dozen of these in our studio using a similar technique with a 100mm Macro Lens. One problem however was the room air-flow. We found that in a large room with air conditioning, the particles fly around a lot faster and it's very difficult to capture slower moving ones. We wonder if you also noticed a similar effect when shooting? Just curious.

Cheers.

    It stands for "Computer Generated Images"
    it can refer to any image or cideo created by a computer
    (with programs like 3dsmax, maya,photoshop, aftereffects, etc.)
    (ILM stands for "Industrial Light & Magic", its a Effects company, they did among others Jurasic Parc)

Cool stuff..

But what's up with the Usage License?
If I want to use the contents on 3 or 4 different computers I can just download it to each of the computers.

And if I reallyt want to share the contents with someone I can just send them the link to VideoCopilot.
I don't really see the meaning of this Usage License.

This just remind me about a soccerplayer named Alan Shearer. He had his own way of celebrating after scoring a goal (by running around and putting his arm up in the air while looking down) and when another player did the same thing Alan Shearer stated that he (and only he alone!!) owned the copyright for that particular celebration.

As I do worship the copyright law it seem to me that most people become paranoid when it comes down to their rights, money, etc.
Yes, it's important to protect your work but don't be overprotective.

Anyway, great stuff and it's nice to see that stuff from older tutorials are being used to create new tutorials.

Keep up the work Andrew :)

    3 years ago
    Honestly I wouldn't bother with HP or any pre-built computers for that matter. I've been building my own work stations for years and I would highly reccommend it. I just built one about 3 months ago, i7 960, GTX 570 (hardware accelerated mercury engine in premiere), raided hard drives (3.5tb of total space), and 24GB of DDR3 triple channel memory for only $1500! HP can't even come close to that. I'm not one of those spammers, I just hate it when people overpay for computer hardware because of a brand name.
    Awesome
    3 years ago
    Well, in HP website they says HP Z800 is 'Starting at: $ 2,509.00'

    So if you want you can check this out in here:

    It is a good idea to build your won workstations, but if you don't know how HP also has the most inexpensive and power efficient workstations that I've come by. Bu other than the Z800 HP also has other workstations that will run After Effects and even dedicated 3D software just as well.

    The following can be found at: www.hp.com/zworkstations

    HP Z1
    HP Z210 SFF
    HP Z210 CMT
    HP Z220 SFF
    HP Z220 CMT * High recommend | The best for low budget work
    HP Z400
    HP Z420
    HP Z600
    HP Z620
    HP Z800
    HP Z820

    Hope I could help

    For a little more information

    HP workstations have been used to make the hit movie Act of Valor along with Adobe Production Premium.

    Autodesk Software has been designed of HP workstations for years.

    HP workstations, are recommended for workflow with RED Camera Footage by, their first employee, Ted Schilowitz to edit footage up to three times the resolution and frame rate pf full 1080p HD.

    HP has been in the business of making workstations longer than any other computer building company.

    All in all if you can't build your own computer, or if you want a workstations that will run all the time under any condition, HP is the best choice.
