Upcoming 3D Model Pack!

Here are a few renders for an upcoming 3D model pack. These images were rendered inside After Effects using our very own Element 3D plug-in and populated the city by using the advanced array options inside the plug-in. And of course you can take advantage of the same amazing speed and performance of our OpenGL render engine.

These shots only use a 5 or 6 unique buildings but you can use as many as you want since the collection contains over 30 high quality buildings and skyscrapers. Another cool feature is that we are including day and night textures ready to go! This model pack will be ready to go next month with some more advanced tutorials.

Another cool thing about this upcoming pack is that we are including the 3D max files setup with VRay, the C4D files as well as OBJ and FBX with textures setup. So you can bring these models into your favorite 3D program and do even more advanced renderings.

Is there a way to make the lights all different colours, because in a real city, all lights are not the same shade of orange/yellow?

    Good point Ben, there can be neon lights, city street lights and these do have different colors.

Pack still not out??????? Can't wait
2 years ago
In all seriousness.

I think that people should just STFU and wait.

The pack will be here when it gets here, and if you feel that waiting is not an option for you, go download BLENDER and learn how to make your own models packs.

Videocopilot does ALOT of stuff for us (a bunch of people they don't know) for free, and the rest they sell at reasonable prices.

So it kind of makes me feel physically unwell to come onto a site that has over one hundred and thirty free tutorials, and see that people are whining about the delayed release of what will obviously be a fantastic product - when it is ready.

    you're right, alexxander. It's completely true. The announcement of this pack came at the right moment for me.
    I was irritated by the lack of communication about the release date. But it's a minor detail. I'm a huge fan of videocopilot.
    Andries

    Well, it takes a view seconds to say "guys, we can't make the release date."
    Or maybe to begin with : "I hope its ready next month" instead of "its ready to go next month".

    Ofcourse VC do allot good things for us.
    But the free stuff is just smart/good marketing.
    Nothing is for free :)

    Btw, I'm not irritated about this (to make things clear), but I understand why some people are. :)

GREAT Andrew,
I'm a compositors and I suggest to go ahead with this 3D models pack. We need also :
- Old classics car
- Today's commons cars and transport Vehicles
- Today's commons Airplane and helicopter
- Animals (domestic, birds, exotic, zoo...
- trees, plants and flowers,
- road signs, street furniture,

and in generally, every other thing to make a basic set extensions or/and 3D compositing! this is a revolution for compositing and direct rendering in AE, but I repeat, we need 3D models specifically create for 3D Elements cause with all 3D models avaiable in internet (free or for payment) IS VERY HARD TO OBTAIN a right texturing maps and all other Maps (AO, Normal, Specular...) we need for render in 3DE.
Please, think about it!

Hey VCP Team

I have one question in regards to the Elements Plug in and that is:
Are you able to at some point add an expression or a button that one could push which would allow the elements objects to bounce off of each other rather then move through one another? This way the particles have collision?

Also I have a suggestion for another cool Elements pack that maybe you could build called "Structures" which could include Bridges, Famous buildings ie "Eiffel tower", Tunnels or chunks of highway etc. You know so we would NEVER have to leave the warm comfort of AE!

Thanks and I love all that is VCP!

    Have you sent an email to support? We are continually working on updating the plug-in and fixing bugs. Of course the GPU has limits so if you try to do things that are too complex they may not work. Not knowing anything about your issue I would need to hear from you. You can email reports, projects, spec etc to our team and we will check it out!

    Only problem it has is still no Windows 8 Support yet, but Hopefully this will be fixed in the Next Update Soon. I really want to use this plugin... (I have had since day 1, The Full Pack) [None of my stuff is set up for Windows 7, as my Win7 drive crashed, and I moved onto Windows 8, and only have a basically stock version of Windows 7 on my Partition]
    2 years ago
    I Just tried activating the plugin again for kicks in CS6 on Windows 8 Consumer Preview, and to my surprise it Obtains License and it finally Activates right without an Error and Works perfectly so far! I wish support would have emailed me to tell me like they said they would, but I don't know if you guys even knows it works so I wont hold that against you... ^~^ , so I am letting you know so you can tell others.

    Now I can get started and start using the new Free Packs, and all the Pro Packs I bought so long ago too! YAY!

What are we thinking in terms of file size? I've always thought about getting a building pack, but some of them are outright huge.

Can we make requests? How about a vehicle pack? Didn't you say something about a Transport Pack? 4 or 5 cars, 4 or 5 trucks like your armored car and Dodge Ram or something. Maybe throw in a Mac Truck so someone can pretend it's Optimus (maybe even include cars with crunched hoods), a few generic planes like that one you have and that helicopter. Then toss in a couple of space ships and that space station. I'd pay a pretty penny for that. Good car models are so hard to find at a reasonable price.

    @Remington, I bought one (Audi for 5$) and you get a pretty good car for 5 bucks. But you get what you pay for. No maps except for the tire tread and that was UV'd wrong apparently. The materials were special plugins, so look good in C4D, but don't translate to Element and normals don't look so good in Element either. They are empty too - no guts. Not even the bottom of the car is modeled.
    Thanks for the link though.

    Andrew said: "...they take a lot of work" - Yea right!

    They probably have some VC 3D modeling tool in AE like Elemenet 3D and they just take a picture of something and there it is in 3D...
    Just kidding... right? :)

I'm excited about this pack!
Will it come with those environment maps that you have in these shots?
I see a reflection in the building, of other buildings, I asume that is either the environment map OR a reflection map and you have a separate Enviro for the surrounding suburbs and sky?

Hi there Andrew!
I know that you read, even if you stay silent.
Well, you could start a 'secta' here. With a wild bunch of reverential fans (fanatics) from different nations (I'm spanish), religions and nationalities... And many of them are quite intelligent...
Sorry, I respect everyone here, and I respect that everyone shows their opinions and have questions...
Resuming:
- No, it won't be free (the Metropolitan or the - I guess- upcoming Transports packages)
- No, with Metropolitan you won't be able to do street level scenes, with shopwindows, people, traffic lights or cars. The models won't have that level of detail.
- Yes, you can use the models in Cinema 4D, 3Ds max, or any program that accepts OBJ or FBX.
- Anything impossible for Andrew? well, I'd like to find a way to integrate Element 3D with tracked footage in a easy way. I have seen the tutorials about how to align the scenes with a null, and I know the new Elementary script. That's fine, but not so intuitive...
And I am not the kind of guy who expects excellent results without effort and some knowledge. So, nothing to complain about.

Is intelligence ... automatic?

Keep up the good work!

    LOL. My thoughts exactly! I've got the city pack but I'll definitely be getting this one as well. One thing the GSG's does very nicely is integrating 3D text rather seamlessly into the scene...so provided the Metropolitan pack doesn't include that feature, I think the City Kit will be safe.

All of that E3D configs + reflection, refraction, etc... = 2h 47min in FULL HD

Hi Andrew!

Did you get my email about that "trailer like black-blinking effect" script idea? I wrote about some other stuff too, like a possibly good heat wave distortion plugin, and an action movie style "frame-strobe" thing...
It was a week ago...
    obvious
    2 years ago
    Hey Jay,
    How many emails do you think Andrew gets in a day. 20, 30, 100?

    Heat wave plugin? Why? This is easily achieved with standard plugins. If I owned a plugin company, I'd be interested in creating something that isn't a one trick poney. Your heatwave plugin would appeal to only a very small audience, where as, something like Element appeals to everyone.

    I doubt you'll hear from Andrew.

    Cheers.

v exciting. Looking forward to how well these hold up at close detail, they look good at a distance but i'm sure many of use are going to want to do street level flythoughs and things like that. I know when i tried to do a fly through on the stadium in the sports pack it didn't hold up so well.

Hopefully this is one of more to come, would love to see an "rural" building pack with some "The brady bunch" feeling buildings :-)

many thanks!
