New Tutorial: Mid-Air Emergency!

In this new tutorial we’ll composite the interior of an airplane as the wing bursts into flames. We’ll cover green screen keying, 3D tracking with Camera Tracker, particles and compositing live action elements. I’ve also included a dropping Oxygen mask in the project file for people that want to add an extra layer!

I used the texture in the Glossiness channel and the reflection channel to give the pathways a metalic look. Next I built the […]

Typical. Part of the fun of these render projects is just creating random stuff and designing without a specific goal. It’s actually been really challenging and exciting to try various techniques. In this scene, I used an aerial […]
My 10 Cloverfield Lane Contribution

As always it was a pleasure to work with Dan Trachtenberg.     My work on 10 Cloverfield Lane! #nightmares #mattepainting A photo posted by Video Copilot (@andrewkramer) […]
Free AE Project: Layer Styles

UPDATED: CS3 project file is now available

If you are trying to make sense of the words above… have at it!  Actually they are various layer styles in today’s free Project File.

Since they added Photoshop layer styles to After Effects, I pretty much never used it but I recently decided to spend a little time creating some clean titles to share with everyone here. I’ve even recorded a short tutorial to show you how to edit the project file along with some tips for customizing and adding textures. I’ll be on soon with more tutorial so until then… Enjoy!
