METROPOLITAN Release Date!

Have you ever wanted to be an unlicensed building contractor? Today we are announcing the release date for our new 3D model pack METROPOLITAN. This collection features over 100 3D buildings and specialized reflection maps for creating incredible city shots with Element 3D! The pack will be available Tuesday, Jan 22 2013!

In addition to Element 3D, we have also taken the time to build each object for your favorite 3D program too. Including Cinema 4D, 3D Max and 3D Max with Vray, as well as OBJ and FBX with materials pre-setup. This model pack is our  most comprehensive and there may be a few surprises yet to come. Trailer and demo videos to follow. Have a safe new year!

My After Effects World Conference Visit
I’m excited to tell you that I had a blast at this years After Effects World conference and met a lot of great people.

I talked about what motivates me, personal challenges […]
Announcing Element 3D V2!
It has been a little over 2 years since the release of Element 3D V1 and I still remember it quite vividly. I recall staying up all night before the launch, trying to get everything done. I was nervous and excited.  My son Josh had just been born a week earlier and I was working from home at the time. […]
Technical Details about E3D V2
Now that we have released the first look at Element 3D V2, you can see that this is not a small update to our plug-in. It is a massive overhaul with many big features. So, I thought I would take a little time to answer a few technical questions. NOTE: Pricing information and upgrade paths […]
Pixel Screen Experiment!
Here is a fun experiment I created to simulate cool LCD Pixel effects using built-in plug-ins only! It uses the Camera Lens Blur effect along with a depth map to create realistic DOF. Watch Breakdown on Youtube Download Project File (CS6) Sound FX Created with MotionPulse!

I prefer to use the excuse that I don't have the money because I used it for something that is freakin awesome. Thanks and I love your work.

    That sounds great! Imagine Anton Furst's Gotham City or Batman Beyond future city.
    I think I saw a cool idea from EsriCityEngine http://www.esri.com/software/cityengine where we could import a 2D city floor map or a photoshopped file with different custom shapes representing objects such as trees, grass, different road types etc and have the Metropolitan plug-in recognize the shapes and colors, press a button and have these shapes extrude(adjustable). It would be incredible.

Congratulations VCP team, it looks like you're about to hit another home run! I can't believe how fast you all get things like this done, especially considering how small your team is!

This looks amazing! Will you create a plugin for Element 3D that will allow us to use the Xbox Kinect to animate 3D characters in the future? For example: We import a 3D character into Element 3D, import environment reflection map. Once this is set, record two motion capture sessions (body and face capture) and connect the track points to the face and body skeleton.

How are the buildings structured? Are window panes modelled or just textured? I'm thinking about the possibility of using shaders to create virtual room geometry, but that would generally require window panes to be modelled.

Will this pack work with Blender?
    Yorfl
    2 years ago
    Yes! blender supports both .obj and .fbx
    You will probably need to reasign the materials/textures, but it says pre-setup so even that might be unnecesary.
    But if you are going to use cycles instead of blender internal i guess you will have to reasign the textures. (Shouldnt be a problem though, as these models most likely will include UV-Coordinates

Will these models be quads or tris? If they’re quads I’m definitely in. If they're tris then their use will be limited.

Also... any plans to support Modo in the future?

No wonder it is taking so long to get the product out to us. It isn't even in our impatient hands yet and everyone is trying to make improvements before we even know what needs to be improved upon. How can Andrew possibly get this to our hot little hands and in time for the release date if we are giving him sleepless nights? I can only picture him tossing and turning and wondering why we are being so hyper critical on something we have not had the opportunity or right to be making critical statements about. Yet.
Good Grief! Calm down and wait to see this thing of beauty and then we can rip it to shreds with either love or why didn’t you do this or that. I have never been disappointed from any product I have gotten from Andrew and crew ever! But I do think a miniature of Sam Loya is a good idea. I want to throw him off a tall building!

What's cool is you could integrate this in Cinema 4D using the GSG City Pack. You could use these buildings as custom buildings,and then use the City pack to control them.

Which format will be?
2 years ago
After reading all the GSG City Pack related questions, I gotta say this.

The difference will become clear when you make a fully textured city in C4D with City Pack, animate it, render it, export the camera in AE ... blah blah blah... Then boot up Element 3D and knock 50 cities while C4D renders one...
    2 years ago
    THEN... Import your C4D render and realise the lighting was off a bit and needs adjusting.. :D

Also, will the demo focus on implementation into Element?
Will there be any bodies of water? as many major urban areas are coastal.

I'm really interested to see whether/how we'll be able to design the street layout and backgrounds. Someone asked me about a video project that incorporated a city street fly-through, and I thought of this plug in. But then one wonders about cars on the street... I'm looking forward to your demos. :)

Andrew,

If you're going to make this available in a bundle pack that let's you purchase ALL objects. I'm sold, I know I'm going to want everything for Element 3D anyway.

Hello, Andrew and all.

Wow, that is very exciting news!! I can't wait!!

How about the price???

That would be the same price of the other 3D packs($99.00)? Or,... more.

Happy New Year!!

Is there a way to generate some sort of buffer-matte-thingy that would allow us to place a layer behind close buildings and in front of further buildings? So we can have aircraft, Godzilla or whatever look like it's in the scene?
    2 years ago
    Yes... One way is to use the depth compositing trick. Or create a plane on Group 5 and make it big, then set the material to Matte Shadow, This will cut anything out behind it. Then if you use a copy of the Element 3D layer, you can make this a matte.

Can you run this package in Motion 5? or FCPX? or you need advanced composition software such as Nuke, cinema 4D etc...?
    2 years ago
    No, this is a model pack intended for use with the pluggin Element 3D which runs in Adobe After Effects. In addition you can run it in 3D programs such as Cinema 4d, 3DS Max, and other programs that can load an OBJ such as Maya. All listed in the second paragraph above.

Are there going to be destroyed buildings in the pack? Really wish there was a model pack for destroyed buildings, something post apocalyptic and such.
    Eric
    2 years ago
    yeah I was wondering about the same thing, will it gonna be animate-able so if I compose it with something such as action essentials 2. I can make it looks like building explode or something? =)
    Derek
    2 years ago
    Destroying them yourself is probably best because otherwise you can't as much with broken buildings :P
    Danny
    2 years ago
    of course you could simply use a simply fracture effect on any building in an external 3d software, but that wouldnt look realistic.
    For a realistic explosion you would need the interior modelled at least a bit, which would be somewhat overkill for a motion graphics pack and rise the polycount way up.
    There is though the way to just use an Action Essentials (for those who have it, i wish i was one of those guys :D) Explosion and put it somewhere, an explosion usually covers stuff in a bright fireball so with a few additional debris elements it should be fine for mid range shots, and for a detail shot of such an explosion there could be a little more 3d Software work done.

    I have to agree with Tyler. I own Element 3D and the Pro Shaders but I would be interested in buying just some model packs now that I have a better understanding of how I will use E3D but there is not an option to bundle just the models. Please consider adding some bundles for the model packs. thanks AK!

    Hi Simon, Yes I realize you can purchase them separately. However, there are no BUNDLE deals. i.e. (buy any three model packs for $249.99) You must pay full price for each if you pass up the original massive bundle deal which includes E3D and Pro Shaders. In my case I bought the 3D design bundle but now I can't go back and bundle any of the models themselves.
