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!

Element 3D V2: New Specular Model!
Of the many new features announced with Element 3D V2 (so far), there is one I am particularly excited about and that is the new specular highlight model. The new spec model takes advantage of the new physical shader system and features a natural light falloff  helps create more realistic shaders! You can even get the specular to […]

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.
    DigiChick
    2 years ago
    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.

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.
