    Dude, shut UP! I'm sick of people pestering the crud out of Andrew about Element on posts that have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with Element! It's not like he forgot about Element or is intentionally making his fan base angry by withholding something he's been promising for months. For goodness sake, he's a business man; of course he'll release Element when it's good and ready to be released! ARGH! JUST SHUT UP UNTIL HE DOES!!!!
    June 25th, 2012 @ 8:23 am
    Chill, TW2. IV is just eager and that's okay. I am too.

    Rather than get angry, use that energy for something productive like creating more awesome AE visuals. I guarantee you'll feel much better and we all will get to enjoy it with you.

This company is really ahead of the curve. That spike system is the most advance motion control set up I've ever heard of! Incredible! And does anyone know the name of that great song at the end of the vid and who it's by?

    June 15th, 2012 @ 12:33 pm
    I don't know the name of this exact song, but it's a ripoff of Iron by Wood Kid
    hylianchris
    June 16th, 2012 @ 12:46 am
    It is Iron - Woodkid. But some cover, with a female singer. Maybe you can find the right cover =) The original is also very good
    June 16th, 2012 @ 12:52 am
    Hi Jason! I don't know exactly what the name of the song is, but i can tell you at least, something about on what it's based of (in some way. Check this link: https://vimeo.com/21604065
    Dino Muhic
    June 16th, 2012 @ 4:18 am
    It's a special cover from "Woodkid - Iron" only made for Marmelade by bluwi.com
    June 16th, 2012 @ 6:33 am
    Not sure, but if you look up the trailer for. Assassins Creed. Revelation. they use a French version of this song. Maybe you can find the original version through that.
    Leonardo Biazotto
    June 16th, 2012 @ 9:47 am
    This music is a variation of the song by Woodkid. Name of the song is: Iron.

    June 18th, 2012 @ 2:26 pm
    The song is Raphael Lake - Speed of Light
    June 25th, 2012 @ 8:25 am
    That camera would be incredible on a project I'm working on. Problem is, I am no photographer. But that vid makes me wonder if I should change careers....nah! lol ;)
    Chris
    June 28th, 2012 @ 2:01 pm
    You sure it is Raphael Lake? cause it sounds very much like "Florence and the Machine".
    July 1st, 2012 @ 6:04 am
    yes it is Raphael Lake Ė Speed of Light. they choose a good song for the reel. VC all the way.

    June 15th, 2012 @ 11:35 am
    Well..i see the Phantom HD Gold was used for High speed video, but don't know which Robotic Arm was used, Andrew do you know which Robotic Arm they use?i think i shall contact the company.

    Kuka would be my choice: http://www.kuka-robotics.com

    Great video, Andrew, thanks for sharing.
    hylianchris
    June 16th, 2012 @ 12:49 am
    Like you said the Phantom Gold was used - that camera is NOT CHEAP I can tell you. Home moviemakers who are still only doing this as a hobby, like myself, could never afford a camera like that =( It is for movie companies only.
    And I was under the impression they made (had it made) the rig themselves, and the software to control it. I might be wrong. I'm pretty sure those rigs are rare though, so it could be one of a kind.
    Pempel
    June 18th, 2012 @ 3:15 am
    This seems to me like an either custom build or modified industrial robotic arm. It looks very familiar with those used for assembling cars and stuff.

Wonderfull compilation and awesome equipment to shoot such high quality of high-speed footage.

Now I wonder if there really is a high market for companies like this. Isn't this way more expensive than a well respected 3D production house? To be fair the difference in 3D or real-life is hardly noticable for any graphic designer/expert let alone for the ''general customer'' who actually watches these commercials.

Just my thoughts though.

Awesome video

    That's exactly what I thought too! Love Woodkid.

Some really great stuff. I'm out in SF and there is a company out here that is doing some really insane work with robots as well. Should be interesting to see how that all plays out the industry. Check out Bot & Dolly if this type of work interests you ( http://www.botndolly.com )

    NEVER, you will never get this amount of coolness and randomness in any 3D program, even a heavy 10 terabyte Houdini fluidsim with mantra or VRay render isn't as cool as that!

Wow amazing! These german guys rock! Gr√ľ√üe aus Deutschland an euch! :) Awesome footage!

Wow. That score is outrageous. Starting at about 4:01 - it sounds like a James Bond title song. I've replayed that part about 5 times now!

June 15th, 2012 @ 1:21 pm
well, what i see is only style...
We knows that a today's new style is going to be obsolete tomorrow.
Everyone of us in 1999 remained intimidated watching the matrix bullet time shot. Now, in 2012 I personally find this effect quite boring...

I guess that every special effect in this marmelade demoreel will become obsolete in a few years.

The emptyness of style strikes again...
    Tru
    June 16th, 2012 @ 9:36 pm
    So just because the style might be old and obsolete in a few years, you can't enjoy and appreciate the innovation and creativity of it right now? That sounds really sad and depressing to not be able to enjoy what we experience in the moment and just look at everything as it will be in the future as... dead and boring.

    June 21st, 2012 @ 5:23 pm
    Element 3D Its not coming and he has most likely ditched the project! Andrew has other projects to work on that make him money. Because of a lot of people illegally downloading videocopilot content, the company doesn't make a profit like it should. People need to start BUYING the DVDs to support this amazing guy and his business!! Even just ONE DVD every few months c'mon guys.

    hylianchris
    June 16th, 2012 @ 12:55 am
    The Phantom Gold can shoot 1000 frames per second at 1080p resolution, 1500 fps at 720p, all the way down to 2200 fps in 512x512 :D I certainly think they normally don't go under 720p at least, gotta keep that lovely HD!
    The newer Phantom high speed cameras can go all the way to 10 000 fps! But that is in like 200x200 pixels or something :D

This is amazing on so many different levels! The beauty of the shot, the focus on the subject, the lighting, the compositing, the programing, the tool design and building, the eye to catch the right moment in slow-mow, the patience to do a shot over and over and over to get the one true shot. The advertising budget for beer and soda must be in the trillions $$$$

The other 10 % are Color Correction and fine tuning in post with some CG and Compositing.

June 16th, 2012 @ 6:57 am
Only question I have is how on earth are these guys making so much money to afford to make things like this? It's rather catch 22 isn't it! You need the work to get the kit and you need the kit to get the work! Would love to know how they started out. Although I've only seen this without audio so maybe they explain that? Still though... Lovely show reel! Big up!

It's only pre-version, but most of the shots will be the same, some require debugging, retiming and better cuts.

There's nothing like the real thing, baby. I was facinated by "spike" the motion camera system precision matched with the high speed video camera. How the hell do you pull focus that fast and accurately without a robot? I knew I learned German as a second language for a reason (lol).

I think the high speed cameras will be the next thing to go consumer grade just as 3D has.
I know what Andrew wants for X-Mas......robot?

It is Just SICKENING how great that stuff looked. Makes me wanna just destroy everything I have ever done and start from scratch.........Just Kidding. They are amazing though. I thought Troika had some skills, Marmalade is like Troika x1000, from thought process to production to final render. Now that is a Like WHOA!!!!

    I don't think the plug-in isn't coming at all. For a guy that knows his sh#t better than most he surely has let this plugin go out the window, otherwise it would already have been served up to us already, waiting to buy it! It's clear that videocopilots taken a back seat for Andrew Kramer and he probably makes more money working on projects with his production company, after all he does have a family to support.†

    Dude, shut UP! I'm sick of people pestering the crud out of Andrew about Element on posts that have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with Element! It's not like he forgot about Element or is intentionally making his fan base angry by withholding something he's been promising for months. For goodness sake, he's a business man; of course he'll release Element when it's good and ready to be released! ARGH! JUST SHUT UP UNTIL HE DOES!!!!

Hey guys, Andrew announced on twitter that Element was due release in a 'few days'... That was 15 days ago... What's up? Have you run into problems that will ultimately spell the end for the plugin????

    How do you work that out?

    When he was asked, he said June.

    People were whining when he didn't put content for a bit, and now they're whining when a plugin wasn't released quite as quickly as they think they deserve.

    Maybe there's a bug, maybe something cropped up with CS6, maybe he just wants it to be perfect rather than release something not quite there, and end up dealing with complaints.

    One thing is certain, I don't know for sure - and neither do you.

If every one of AK's twitter followers would donate a buck, that's 50000$ to hire a programmer or two to work out whatever cs6 issues they r having with element. Is sergio tweaking element AND fixing the optical flares/twitch cs6 issues all by himself??? If wikipedia can ask for funds...

    OK, really?! this is a post about the details of video production, you idiot! NOT about the matte painting contest. Jeez, I thought the Element crowd were the only ones who pestered the crud out of Andrew on posts that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do the original post. Go pitch and moan on a RELEVANT post. OK?

Really stunning. But it's sad to think that all this work is justified merely by promoting a product, maybe because only a firm, and a large one, can afford funding projects like these. It would be interesting to see such an outstanding creativity not applied to a "market", but completely free, I mean, like an expression of art. Is there any artist who is able to work this way?
    rm brand
    June 25th, 2012 @ 5:42 pm
    You could be that artist, Tess. And honestly, I don't see using the visuals to sell products as a negative. Art is not purposeless. It is an expression of who we are. Companies are an entity and the smart ones use visuals like these to illustrate their creativity as an organization. If anything, it makes me want to look into that company to learn more about it.

Excited! Stop for a second, look in the mirror and see if you can tell yourself that a PLUGIN for AE is worth the bloodpressure.

Calm down. I am sure he has a reason for all
The delays. In the meantime, fire up AE and make some art!
