Destruction Experiment!
What is this thing! I’ve basically combined a bunch of stuff into one experiment! I might have been inspired by the amazing planet explosions from The Force Awakens but wanted to see if I could get a cool version inside Element 3D. Few Notes on this experiment; I added smoke elements, shockwaves using CC Sphere, and even […]

It's still very sad how people just can't make a "more thoughtful" comment, just as Andrew always pointed out. I have the impression that the major part of people commenting are kids that love to do videos with lasers, explosions and cheesy special effects. No prob with those kids, I think that's the way, but to read only this kind of thing is just boring. I'm being a little rude but it just makes me sad to see that Andrew stands alone, with no good feed-back from his hard work, only a "Awesome!! Incredible!!" comment every time he farts. Sorry if I'm out of line here, I just can't stand it anymore.

Great tutorial, Andrew!
Just to note: when you add a vignette, just double click the Ellipse-Tool and After Effects will add a perfect ellipse mask on your video / adjustment layer / whatever layer.

I was wondering if you could animate the plants when the camera is moving towards it, like some guy ( or the camera man is walking through the plants?
