Pick a Grenade any Grenade!



As I was working on this new tutorial that involves a flying Grenade, I realized that I could create the entire tutorial without the use of any 3D software like Cinema 4D or 3D max. So that’s exactly what I did! Now if you looking to create some live action elements for compositing, the key is to try and match the lighting of your original shot. If you watch our recent video Shell Shocked, the sun is coming from the top left side of the frame, so I tried to match the look on the green-screen. This same principle applies in 3D animation if you want to composite that futuristic grenade too and I’ll be sure to include some tips for those interested in the 3D workflow! No matter which way you use, do your best to match the lighting and you can use After Effects to blend right in. Stay tuned for the action packed tutorial!

By the way Andrew, just wanted to let you know that you are listed in the IMDB, but there isn't any bio info on your page. Sadly, the star of this short doesn't have a page on IMDB at all. Poor Sam, and after all that dirt eating too!

Thanks for all the hard work, really appreciate it since there are very few books out there on this and the only one that I have uses example files that must be from 1995.

Having a love hate relationship with these tutorials great to see the workings behind them. No mistake Andrew is one smart Guy. Not so good see 100 versions of cloned videos or 100 versions of how to shoot somebody in the head using some blood splatter and a slow motion bullet. When they all end up on youtube, makes me a little sad. I'm unsure, seems to encourage mass bastardization of the art of film making. Watch for the next youtube experience 1000 Grenades in one take.

Andrew... I don't mean to bitch about this stuff but, I'm sorry to say that this stuff is not useful, except for maybe bollywood. Let's face it, there's a lot of ways to skin a goat, so why not just get some grenade props for that precise shot? If you're good you plan your shots, thus you plan your props, no need for chroma-keyed of 3D generated grenades.

Seriously, you should focus a bit more on stuff that's actually helpful, techniques or stuff that's just cool. This isn't amazing, it's stuff I've seen before.

Sorry for deriding you here, but I'm hoping you'll take this and strive for more.
    Eric
    3 years ago
    I am dumbfounded by this comment. If he had not said anything, it would have been a stretch to even realize they weren't props. Would it be nice to have actual objects for everything? Sure. But it makes little sense to buy numerous fake grenades for a shot that can be made in this manner. And of course more importantly, this is a tutorial and is intended to show the audience that you can do things without a budget. This is fantastic stuff and shows numerous helpful techniques.

    Dude..you talk aboit that like you already watch the tutorial... If u read above Andrew say have a new technic aboit tracking and others usefull stuff. Who told you to do exctaly what he do? If you dont want genade , just dont put grenade and learn some technic he will talk about... And plus, his tutorials are damn FREE!!!!! So stop complain or try do something by your own.
    xandercorp
    3 years ago
    Guys, no need to start getting offended. Yes, I do think this next tutorial won't be showing a lot that's useful for a lot of people. As for budgets, I'm aware that everyone wants to work with a low budget, but let's face it there are OTHER ways to skin a goat. Such as making your own, like so:
    1. An empty can of spray.
    2. A ring.
    3. A stencil
    4. Some paint.

    You can't tell me it can't be achieved with some manual work and have results that look great. Maybe with some hand made ones you wouldn't be able to focus the shot on them(although I doubt even that) but you'd still have a grenade shot.

    I don't come across many projects that need grenades, and unless you're doing the videos for a military school or shots for an action movie, nor will you. A few simple stock footage scenes with grenades falling on a matted ground, might have done the trick. That way we could've just replace the texture and color correct and then we would've been able to use them in all kinds of scenes.

    The tutorials on AE tuts+ are free as well, at least some, they present lovely techniques. Andrew and his team are great for doing this, but, for me, this doesn't seem worth the effort...
    what?
    3 years ago
    The thing to remember is that this will not be a tut JUST about a grenade, what Andrew whats us to do is to take the idea, and apply to to every area of our movies... (ok maybe not EVERY area.... but you get the point. :D

Stop checking on an hourly basis if by chance this site posted a new tut or other. Relax and enjoy what you know and do something with your time.

I think it's constructive criticism regarding the topics of the tutorials, nothing more. I'm not deriding this for the pure pleasure of it, I'm a VC fan and I do enjoy many of their tuts.
    3 years ago
    I appreciate the discussion and I'd like to add to it.

    One thing to think about is that by shooting the Grenade on green, I can rotate it slowly and achieve a super-high speed camera look. It's not always about budget but instead it's about achieving the desired effect. Think about trying to get a close-up rack focus shot on something being thrown... It is potentially impossible to capture.

    I always say, try not to have a narrow interpretation when watching tutorials, there is a lot you might miss. Grenades and exploding orbs are COOL and fun! But they are simply the subject with an artificial purpose.

    This could just as easily be a player diving to catch a baseball to win the game or some other impossible-to-film moment, that is accentuated with super-slow motion.

    I remember years ago when I made the Meteor series and someone said "But I need more useful tutorials, I don't need to create a meteor crash?!"

    :)

    Of course that series covers the most fundamental aspect of modern visual effects such as, 3D Tracking, 3D Animation and then compositing. The possibilities are endless.

    I continue to encourage people to think about these techniques and use then to achieve YOUR vision and ideas.

    I just want to blow stuff up!

This site is great. However guys, the tutorials are free but they are there to sell PRODUCTS too. We want to buy VC products but have no real clue on when they come out unless a time is reached. I do believe that Mr. Kramer is a little too busy and cannot finish his product like he wanted to. But in regards to almost everybody, please, have someone respond to us when we have serious issues or questions. You, Mr. Kramer can offer advance tutorials for a fee and not only use them to sell yours and other company's products. We will buy them and still watch the free ones. You are great at what you do but have been lacking on what we are asking for.

    I'm not being harsh. I would like to have a clue on a time Element would come out, your thoughts on a lot of your VC comments be answered and etc. I started using aftereffects because of you and my business. I airbrush and create websites, and one day i wanted to add that little extra to my advertising and came across this cool site. Two years later i'm cooler than ever.

    Gary Bird

    @Jacob - I completely agree. Use a dictionary, spell-check or Google Translate, guys. It also seems as though VCP is now only interested in the adolescent male market, with these repetitive posts on explosions, muzzle flashes, grenades and busty blonde bimbos, portals and orbs. There is a wider VCP audience out there than the one you are catering for. Sorry, Andrew, but after two years of loyally following you and your tutorials, and buying your fantastic products, and now waiting for Element for 6 months of my life with still no news on a release date, I'm getting disillusioned and disappointed.
    Jake The Muss

    I have to say both comments from Jacob & Gary Bird are a little harsh in my opinion. Don't forget there are users of the blog where English is not their first language.
    I agree that VCP has a vast audience so people's opinion on the content on VCP will vary. That said, can you ever have too much of explosions, grenades, muzzle flashes and blonde bimbos..? I think not :)
    One thing I do find rude is how many people have come to 'expect' things from here. AK & the team give their tutorials & time up for free so we should be grateful for anything because in this day & age it's quite rare to get something for nothing.
    With regards to Element...I'm sure good things come to those who wait..:)

Hi Andrew, please please dont forget to put in the burning smoke from the top of the grenade. Having seen grenades (real) being tested when the pin is pulled, a device called a rat trap springs over hitting a percussion cap, this then ignites the cambric cloth, burning down to the composition explosive which detonates setting of the main explosive.

When the pin is pulled and the fly off lever has gone you get smoke frome the fuze well, sometimes slow sometimes a fizz. Everyone forgets to comp that smoke in which is slightly annoying as i think the smoke makes it more dynamic and says to the viewer Im active.

I'm really interested in the colour correcting in this short video! Also, as a person who lives in a small community in Canada, I don't have the means to get a hold of a grenade anywhere around here, I would have to order it on-line. As if you don't do enough for us, is there any way you could upload grenade footage for us in front of the green screen doing a single rotation?

This is so cool!!! I am looking forward to this tutorial!

Also, how did you add those lights around the grenade it in the future nade picture? can you animate the light with the nade?

    I added some lights to the future grenade by opening the future_grenade_diffuse file in photoshop. I duplicated it and saved it under a new altered name, like "future_grenade_diffuseBP" I then duplicated the background layer, and on my new layer I added masks with the pen tool around the areas of the lights. You have to really zoom in. I changed the fill color of the mask to red, then clicked double clicked on the mask layer to open the fx window. I added "outer glow" effect and selected "precise" and played around with the settings. You have to really bump it up. I then flattened the layers and saved it, then went back into Element and clicked on the diffuse for the grenade and switched selected my new renamed diffuse png. It works, maybe not as good as Andrews, it's a quick fix if you don't know any other options (which I don't yet).

    Yeah I agree, I've recently been working on a short action film that utilizes Andrews cloning technique. I'd love to work in this grenade effect too
