Hey Andrew
One think that I would like to hear from you, are your ideas and work on sound effects on your videos.

Do you edit the sound effects yourself or from a library where you edit them?

I just saw the new commercial for Adidas and could have sworn that I saw the use of the new plugin from VC...

Btw...Is it gonna be called: The NSADistort Plugin?


Spilled it out Andrew or I will call in Edward Snowden!

How can i do these blur effects
    Vinnie K
    2 years ago
    Use DOF or use an adjustment layer, mask it out, feather the edges ans add a fast blur.

    However you can use lenses for focus while shooting the footage.

haha, someone delete my web history. Good stuff. I have a lot of old books too, you should make a page where people could upload pages too. I have a bible (not religious myself) but it's 100 year old, golden parchment paper. There are a few blank pages in the bible too.. and a few pages from when jesus was 12 to 30 are missing.. but I'm sure that's the same for all the bibles.

Fact Check:

1. The QWERTY keyboard was designed to force typists to slow down in order to keep them from jamming the keys. Truth or rumor?

2. The first typewriter that included both upper and lower cases was invented after the Titanic sank. Truth or rumor?

3. The maximum typing speed was 130 words per minute in the mid 19th Century. Truth or rumor?

    The longest word that can be typed on a typewriter using only the top row of keys is the word typewriter.

Even though the separate key models are provided,
we can only create words with 5 letters right ?
Since the group is limited to 5,
Is there any solution for that ?

    You can work with multiple layers with E3D. There are examples of vid's using more than 1 E3D layer.
    Jose
    2 years ago
    Yeah that will do,
    But its a lot of work and there are problems in the interaction between the multiple layers with Element3d
    for example while changing the camera motion the overlapping things occur,

As far as being traced by an "agency". Remember Columbo or any other old time detective show from the 70's? They always caught the crook, because the crook would send a ransom note the Police Chief written on a typewriter. The forensic typewriter expert would look at the note and determine the make and model and year of the typewriter. And then note that the "L" had a tick mark just below the left corner. And that would lead them to the one and only typewriter in the world that could have possibly been used to type the ransom note. And thus the crook was caught in the last scene in the last 3 minutes of each episode.

Typewriter facts for typewriter week. No.1 - If you grind up old typewriter keys and boil in them in a broth stirred with a hens tooth, you have lost an important part of your mind. No.2 - Youtube has already started to box away a bunch of cat videos in preparation for the sharknado of typewriter vids that is coming.
