    very nice
December 7th, 2012 @ 11:07 am
Your great! Hows that for thoughtful? LOL No seriously thanks for all your hard work and showing respect and courtesy to your costumers. I have improved so much because of the great people at Video Copilot.

PS It would be great if you can create another music pack with more "modern" music. Electronic, rock, hip hop type of music for example.
    December 11th, 2012 @ 1:31 am
    ...aaand dirty dub step for dirty action scenes with awesome giant robot ants! ^^ I love to make my own sounds for my animations!
    January 2nd, 2013 @ 3:42 pm
    Yeah! electronic/"modern" music pack would be awesome!
    January 21st, 2013 @ 3:00 am
    That's right :)
    April 3rd, 2013 @ 8:00 am
    I would pay top dollar if Andrew got on the microphone and recorded himself going "Wub wub wub wub wub".

What about Blender? I hope you will be integrating it into Blender too. :)
    December 7th, 2012 @ 3:07 pm
    I second that!!
    December 10th, 2012 @ 7:31 am
    I "third (?)" that. Long time VC fan/user who would love to see a tighter intergration with the open source pipeline.
    December 10th, 2012 @ 2:32 pm
    Not sure here, I guess that would be pretty hard to update and maintain, as there's currently a lot of change going on in blenders renderer development (I mean Cycles, the new one)

    But anyway i "fourth (?)" that :)
    December 10th, 2012 @ 7:39 pm
    Yes, more Blender stuff, please.
    December 12th, 2012 @ 12:41 pm
    It's been moved and seconded...uh, and thirded and fourthed... all in favor say Aye.

    --- AYE ---

    December 12th, 2012 @ 1:44 pm
    Aye, aye! I suppose I fifth it?
    December 13th, 2012 @ 12:12 am
    Well, if the fifth is good quality, sip it... don't chug it all at once!
December 7th, 2012 @ 11:29 am
Hello, and thanks you for improving compositing. You are a Energy Guy !! ;)

What do you think about OpenCl version shader for à maximum compatibility with cg and compositing software ?
December 7th, 2012 @ 11:30 am
ReallY Amazing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can we have more type of Design material product in future for E3D too ?
December 7th, 2012 @ 11:38 am
Is this a new file that needs to be downloaded, because I'm not seeing any place to 'upgrade' my file.
I just bought ProShaders 2 days ago and downloaded the Installer but just haven't run it yet.
How do I get them into C4D and Maya?
Thanks, and as always you rock!
    December 7th, 2012 @ 10:42 am
    Nevermind. :)
    December 7th, 2012 @ 10:45 am
    For others, once installed, you will see the Video Copilot folder in the content browser inside C4D.
    December 7th, 2012 @ 11:18 am
    I would however like to know how these can be used in Maya per the compatibility info for Pro Shaders?
    December 7th, 2012 @ 1:32 pm
    Aaaaaand, once again, nevermind.
    After searching online I found information as to where the maps are placed after the install (Documents/VideoCopilot) so I can now pull them into Maya as texture maps as well.
December 7th, 2012 @ 12:05 pm
Great Man even I am not using it.....but loving it :) thanks Andrew you are the best :)

December 7th, 2012 @ 12:21 pm

WOW! How dare i? A cuban who lives in argentina and love U guys, good luck, and keep inspiring us!
My respects for u, Andrew, and happy new year!!!!
December 7th, 2012 @ 12:41 pm

December 7th, 2012 @ 1:09 pm
Good morning! :DDDDDDDDDDD
December 7th, 2012 @ 1:17 pm
I'm pretty sure this is a stupid question but here it goes: I have pro shaders but use 3ds max. This is only an upgrade if you are using C4d correct?
    December 7th, 2012 @ 8:49 pm
    You don't really need pro shaders for max as long as you have bought any render engine such as vray or final render. Even with mental ray you can re-create most of these with ease.

Hi Andrew,

was the Metropolitan pack cancelled or are you guys still working on it?

I ask this cause you're last post about it was end September and you said it would release the next month..

December 7th, 2012 @ 1:24 pm
Thanks guys, I really appreciate all you do. Ni r gudar bland mnniskor.
December 7th, 2012 @ 2:32 pm
But we need 3D models for Element 3D...
can U help me?
    December 9th, 2012 @ 12:27 pm
    Make ur owns, or download some at turbosquid.
December 7th, 2012 @ 4:36 pm
Never used C4D but its soooo cool you made this av' for those who do :0)
    December 8th, 2012 @ 8:47 am
    Agreed with you @christian / Me never used C4D too but the feature is awesome for them who use :)
December 7th, 2012 @ 5:03 pm
For this I did not expect. Many thanks to Video Copilot for this great bonus. I'm downloading now. Thanks from Brazil.
December 7th, 2012 @ 6:29 pm
Super awesome! Another step towards Element 3D-Mograph collab ;)
December 7th, 2012 @ 11:05 pm
Wow! thanks! funny, was just thinking that I would like the shaders in cinema 4d, haha. You read minds???
December 7th, 2012 @ 11:34 pm
That is awesome Andrew and is it posible to make some Cinema 4D tutorials in the future?
    December 8th, 2012 @ 8:22 pm
    If you're talking about the basics, they don't get much better than this one (there are seven parts in total)

    In the past, VCP have done a bit of 3DS Max (epic shatter, medical zoom, 3D ledge etc), but considering the price of those softwares - those tutorials would be kind of exclusive...

    And just imagine the render times..

    PS - read some background info on the TWILIGHT movies - di you know that it takes literally HUNDREDS of hours to render the wolves? As in hit the render button on Monday, then come back the following Saturday to see how it turned out..

Thanks so much, I am moving more and more into Cinema 4D, getting an academic license when this trial is out. ^~~^
December 8th, 2012 @ 8:50 am
Make sure your graphics card support to run the element 3d and update it from its home page.
December 8th, 2012 @ 6:47 pm
hey andrew wahts up? i am waiting for 3d buildign models.
remember it? up coming...
December 8th, 2012 @ 9:10 pm
Fantastic news.

This will also make it a million times easier for VCP, and anyone with Cinema 4D to make models packs - which I'm pretty much guessing is the whole point - but now we get the benefits also, at no extra cost.
December 8th, 2012 @ 9:40 pm
Wow. I can't tell you how many times I have wished that some of of those shaders were available to me while working in C4d. Now they will be.

On top of that, you didn't really have to offer it as a free upgrade.

You are one cool dude.
December 9th, 2012 @ 8:08 am
This kinda looks similar to Grayscale i mistaken
December 9th, 2012 @ 10:30 am
Hi, I just saw the 25% ad and wanna buy the Element's package, but when entering the code CYBER2012, it says "[t]he coupon code you have entered has expired." Is the promo still on? Thanks.
December 9th, 2012 @ 1:54 pm
hmm pretty much like GSG, in my opinion.
    December 11th, 2012 @ 3:22 am
    In my opinion, these materials blow the GSG ones out of the park! Much more complex and beautiful.
December 9th, 2012 @ 4:37 pm
Hello VCP

I sincerely hope as your company grows, and as time and resources permit, that you will extend your product development to include easy Maya and Mudbox workflows. As you are doing with C4D.

You guys have come along long way from your early sky replacement days. Awesome stuff!!!
December 10th, 2012 @ 3:04 am
I´d love to see the element3d-mats ported to 3ds max as well! A lot of max-users are using element3d and even with all the great new features in the last two C4D-Versions, 3ds max is still more commonly used in the business.

I just saw in the special thanks part of the new film by Redgiant-"Tempo".
May I know what is going on Andrew?!
December 10th, 2012 @ 1:52 pm
Will it be any 3ds max pro shader? Are this shaders working for 3ds max? It would be great!
December 10th, 2012 @ 4:07 pm

VCP, I'll port Pro Shaders to 3DS MAX...if you give me a copy of the full studio bundle ;)
December 11th, 2012 @ 6:57 am
Will you publish Pro Shaders for 3dsMax?
December 11th, 2012 @ 7:14 am
Hi andrew,I am from China .Why don't you make some cinema 4D tutorials.
December 11th, 2012 @ 6:42 pm

December 16th, 2012 @ 12:37 pm
Hey Guys, hope I am not causing any trouble with this, but just wanted to give something for this incredibly great community to make christmas (and E3d) even better! ) Allow me to present you the Element 3d Christmas Pack! ((Unofficial).. Including 12 modells (max,obj), completed with the e3d files, so you just have to drop the Christmas Pack into My modells and that’s it! ) It’s free of course, made by me, for every Element 3d lover, just like myself!
Have fun and wish you all merry christmas! ) D

The pack can be downloaded from here
December 17th, 2012 @ 1:39 am

December 18th, 2012 @ 1:22 pm
Once again, thank you so much Andrew! It would be great to have these shaders converted for compatibility with Photoshop CS6 as well. Pretty pretty please?
December 27th, 2012 @ 6:17 pm
Good day everyone, I just posted a new video on my YouTube page featuring some of VCP's best plug ins and I used the Pro Shaders in Element and in Cinema along side the GSG CityKit, and an Optical Flare for good measure. Oh and hey VCP Peeps, we are all waiting patiently for the Building Pack for Element, credit cards out, thought maybe for xmas, buy no :(

Enjoy the video below:

Ok I haven't got shaders yet, but I'm thinking of switching 3d progs from maya. And I think I'll try c4d so I can use the shaders. Cheers Andrew
January 4th, 2013 @ 5:51 am
So, testing... I made this video with Pro Shaders on Cinema 4D. Hope you like it!

Thanks and Love...
January 18th, 2013 @ 11:29 am
there's a thing that's been bugging me... why is there a reflection of the green ball in the silver ball in the product image for Pro Shaders for C4D?.. I know Element doesn't do raytracing so... :P
