Upcoming Training

Here is a glimpse at some of our upcoming tutorials. First creating a nature scene using a few plant images surrounding a procedural rocky title. Watch Sample Video.

Then Sam Loya is running from a train that is repeated into the distance during a camera pan.

Be ready, both tutorials coming out this week — lots of new tips!

May 28th, 2012 @ 8:40 am

May 28th, 2012 @ 8:41 am

    Hello nanba :)

May 28th, 2012 @ 8:51 am
Glad you're still alive :P
Can't wait for those tutorials!
Be sure to throw in one of those page peel transitions for added professionalism.
    May 28th, 2012 @ 10:18 am
    this made me laugh so hard----but I got to admit---my first video I ever did was full of page peels.
May 28th, 2012 @ 8:55 am
You're so awesome Andrew, and the rest of the man behind this site. It would be such an honor to meet you guys ever in my life. I really wish I could. :D
May 28th, 2012 @ 8:59 am
If you'd be so kind.
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:04 am
Poor Sam. You love to torment that guy. And I think he enjoys it too.
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:12 am

I can't wait to see! :)
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:18 am
Is that forest real? I can't tell if you put a bunch of pictures of leaves in 3d space or if it's actually a jungle. Regardless, it looks real good, especially how you have elements in front and behind the text.
    May 31st, 2012 @ 2:32 pm
    Zack... see txt "First creating a nature scene using a few plant images". If you pause, you can see same plants are repeated and some rotated to give variety.
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:29 am
I guess you will use after effects 6 .
I saw the demo video. (3d camera tracking) .
Cant wait ! :)

May 28th, 2012 @ 9:31 am
Woah, cant wait after a long time, Thank you andrew :)
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:34 am

Nice to this site still has a heart beat. Miss the quick and effective AE tuts back in the day.
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:39 am
Oh and for those of you craving to learn cool tuts, check out Nick at grey scale gorilla, its c4d but it's dam awesome!

His site is alive and buzzing the same way this site did a few years back, if 3ds space is your thing, then check it out.

In fact Andrew and Nick could be brothers, I think they are. I would even go as far as to say they could be the same person.
    May 28th, 2012 @ 11:08 am
    I find Nick's training to be difficult to follow. I always get lost with the exception of one tutorial. Some amazing artists are not great instructors. And I used to love this site for the titles, but now it seems to be FX focused. Bummer. I'd love to see some C4D/AE integrated title tutorials here, but for now, Motionworks will do.
    May 30th, 2012 @ 5:03 am
    YOU ARE NOT THE REAL KC!! and whats a tut?
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:41 am
Here is something I did a week ago using some pics of mountains and trapcode particular..kinda like the jungle thing....also used the new raytrace in AE CS6

    May 28th, 2012 @ 2:54 pm
    Believe me, man: that's NOT like "the jungle thing"... Sorry.
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:42 am
yea new tuts finely thanks Andrew :)what about the new plugin ???
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:49 am
Finally after a long time Andrew! Cant wait! By the way, how about the new Plugin Andrew?
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:52 am
What about ELEMENTS?
I hope you are not going to break my
heart, just like the noteslate guys...
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:52 am
wow it's really amazing i really appreciate "the best motion graphics site " Thank a million Andrew ...
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:52 am
Wow! That is pretty cool! I think you could even add a little bit of wiggle movement to the plants as they shake with the wind. :)
May 28th, 2012 @ 9:54 am
The train thing reminds me of this video her. Chemical Brothers - Star Guitar. This is ten years ago http://www.myvideo.de/watch/7172997/The_Chemical_Brothers_Star_Guitar

May 28th, 2012 @ 10:32 am
I'm not calling myself an expert or anything but this little voice inside my head says you need this new revolutionairy plugin that's coming out soon in order to follow these tutorials.
    May 28th, 2012 @ 11:34 am
    Oh wait...now I get the hint...it's a training.... not a tutorial... train...training...
May 28th, 2012 @ 10:36 am
Sweet. How's it going Mr. Kramer?
May 28th, 2012 @ 10:38 am
