Announcing Flight Kit!

UPDATE: Now Available!
We’re only a few days away from the JetStrike Product launch but first I wanted tell you about another new product: FLIGHT KIT!

This new collection goes perfectly with JetStrike but includes many great tools that are useful for any project.

Flight Kit Features:

  • Over 200 Aircraft Sound FX:  Like the ones from the teaser! Great for Sound Design too.
  • 25 HDR Sky Maps. Full 360° maps at 4K Resolution with various cloud types and sunsets.
  • High Definition Aerial Explosions Stock Footage!
  • Plus an advanced Heat Distortion Plug-in by Video Copilot.

The Flight Kit essentially includes 4 separate products in one so you get the tools you need. Plus both JetStrike and Flight Kit will be available in the SKY PACK Bundle on October 8th.

Pricing and bundle information will be out soon but for those of you wondering about sound FX and the Heat Distortion, we didn’t mess around!

Wow, looking really forward to this. =)

    That i was thinking ... when i saw teaser...!!
    How would i record these sounds,,, And here we are.. Seeing @ it :D
October 5th, 2013 @ 4:55 pm
Have any pricing figures been planned? If not, what do you think it could be around? (For the Sky Pack)
    October 5th, 2013 @ 9:10 pm
    "Pricing and bundle information will be out soon", i believe that is what he said.
    October 6th, 2013 @ 3:57 am
    I feel ridiculous now.
October 5th, 2013 @ 4:55 pm
WOW! You have out done yourself again Video Copilot! Great work everyone!
October 5th, 2013 @ 4:56 pm
Would be cool if E3D had some cloud features, but I guess we'll have to stick to particular for that? :C

Can't wait for this

I'm sure it's no new, but you are changing the way ppl do motion graphics/vfx my friend. When Adobe announced Cinema 4D Lite being paired with AE, people wondered what you were going to do. Well with Element 3D I wonder what Maxon/Autodesk/etc. is going to do! People are having to leave After Effects less and less. When does your company go public so I can invest? ;)
October 5th, 2013 @ 5:01 pm
So excited for this! Even more so for the potential car/ground vehicles one
October 5th, 2013 @ 5:02 pm
*it's no news, sorry, typo and felt compelled to correct...
October 5th, 2013 @ 5:04 pm
I just hope the price will be affordable, can't wait to get It :D
October 5th, 2013 @ 5:05 pm
Nice surprise, looking forward to both of the products!
October 5th, 2013 @ 5:06 pm
I can't wait ... :)
October 5th, 2013 @ 5:07 pm
What will be the price tho??

October 5th, 2013 @ 5:15 pm

If he hasn't posted the price, it's probably because he hasn't decided on a figure yet. I know that I can say I trust the folks at video copilot enough to keep the price as low as possible for us!
Simon Langhoff
October 5th, 2013 @ 5:23 pm
I really hope I can affort it! Sounds really cool. But the prices will maybe be hard for a poor student :(

October 5th, 2013 @ 7:53 pm
Can I get in on the IPO when the company goes public? Does the heat distortion have other applications besides the jet pack?
October 5th, 2013 @ 8:02 pm
Jaw Dropped. (nothing more to say but the system is making me)
October 5th, 2013 @ 8:11 pm

October 5th, 2013 @ 10:50 pm
I have a dream that one day Andrew Kramer and video copilot will make a kick ass action movie starring Vin diesel and our very own Sam loyer. It'd be really nice to see sound and visual fx pushed to limits. Anyway great product guys! Can't wait for tuesday!

October 6th, 2013 @ 1:26 am
Amazing ! :)
October 6th, 2013 @ 2:23 am
Will you be releasing the heat displacement plug-in separately as well? I can think of a lot of applications for it beyond the Jet Strike.
    October 6th, 2013 @ 6:49 am
    Possibly in the future. And yes it is quite useful...
    October 7th, 2013 @ 1:53 am
    Great, I was just about to ask the exact same thing. Looks awesome, thank you!
October 6th, 2013 @ 3:29 am
Great! More aircrafts! \o/

sir,are you ready to upload the Tutorials after this packs available?
October 6th, 2013 @ 4:49 am
Hey andrew just wanted to knw dat i am buying this pack(bundle) so what wil be the requirements for this to work as in i am just bit worried about element 3d whether it wil crash or not..i have element 3d 1.6..Just wanted to know whether it wil work fine or we need some additional requirements..
    October 6th, 2013 @ 6:49 am
    There are no new requirements for this pack. There are tips to help reduce memory usage when using many differn't jets in a single scene like setting the preference to 2k instead of 4k. But Shouldn't have to do anything special.
    October 6th, 2013 @ 7:33 am
    Ohhk cool...
October 6th, 2013 @ 5:21 am
"High Definition Aerial Explosions Stock Footage!" ========= With air explosions, we need to know how to combine fragmented objects with E3D. I mean, fragment a plane for explosion with RayFire > export .obj sequences > combine and use via E3D and air explosions. Tutorials are meaning everything for us. You'll do the best as always you do. Thanks A. Kramer.
October 6th, 2013 @ 6:11 am
Please, create a bundle just like this:


If you do it, without element 3d, just the 2 new 3d model pack plus this new sound effect pack i sure buy it.
I already have Element 3d and the others packs, for me is missing just metropolitan and this 2 new ones.

Someone else would like it?
October 6th, 2013 @ 5:13 am
Hey Andrew :),
Will there be a bundle including Jetstrike, flight kit and metropolitan, too? :-)
    October 6th, 2013 @ 6:50 am
    I can see about this. Good idea.
    October 6th, 2013 @ 6:35 pm
    I would like that too.. so pls see if that's possible :)
October 6th, 2013 @ 6:45 am
» High Definition Aerial Explosions Stock Footage!
hmmm .. only one? call me greedy .. but only one? lol
waiting for 8th
October 6th, 2013 @ 6:50 am
Will the Flight Kit be available as a stand alone product or only with the bundle?
    October 6th, 2013 @ 6:50 am
    Yep, they will be available separate or in a bundle.
October 6th, 2013 @ 7:36 am
So finally on October 8 u wil be releasing jetstrike model pack and flight kit..and what about the Heat distortion plug in??
U wil be releasing it on 8th october???
    October 6th, 2013 @ 7:51 am
    Yes, it will be part of the Flight Kit product.
    October 6th, 2013 @ 1:01 pm
October 6th, 2013 @ 7:41 am

(sorry for my inglish,im brazilian!)
October 6th, 2013 @ 12:44 pm
If I have one disappointment with this pack it's that; it isn't named the "Danger Zone" bundle.
reza irani
October 6th, 2013 @ 1:04 pm
will be any Tutorial available on the pack? or they will be available Later on the web?i miss yore voice!!!!!!
October 6th, 2013 @ 1:07 pm

October 6th, 2013 @ 1:49 pm
Man ...
You are good I started to belive in you since I saw a tutorial from you
And I won a msi gaming laptop for a video i made that I used element 3d in it and I received a gift version of element 3d from you :X
Really awesome stuff you got there ...
October 6th, 2013 @ 2:32 pm
All we need now is an aircraft carrier to take off from!!!
October 6th, 2013 @ 3:01 pm
may i use your product to commercial use ?
October 6th, 2013 @ 3:03 pm
aircraft carrier....brilliant....Having just seen Gravity, I also see a potential opportunity in a Space Pack which would include satellites, space station, Shuttles, etc perhaps Actual and then also Futuristic? Then of course, there's underwater bases, subs, etc...I bet your timeline to rule the world is ahead of schedule?? :-)
October 6th, 2013 @ 3:54 pm
yet again incredible and stunning product by VC!
October 6th, 2013 @ 4:05 pm
let's place bets on pricing...i say $229.00 for the jetstrike bundle...if i win you guys can pay for
    October 6th, 2013 @ 4:46 pm
    Little bit less...
    October 6th, 2013 @ 6:37 pm
    ok Andrew you might as well post the price its $ who's paying for seriously whatever the price its well worth it. get the servers ready its going to be a download frenzy

    Jeremy Abbott
    October 7th, 2013 @ 2:01 am
    Wow my friend and I were guessing $300 and you say it's gonna be LESS than $229?? Unreal....
    October 7th, 2013 @ 7:09 am
    I reckon $124.95 for JetStrike and $199 for the Skypack.
October 6th, 2013 @ 4:15 pm
How much will this cost?
Bob K
October 6th, 2013 @ 5:40 pm
If I may weigh in on the "pricing" issue .....
My feeling about restaurants (and all other consumer products on Earth)...
If you have seen the "menu", and you know of the chef's reputation, and of his dishes, his clientele, and his successes ....and you still ask "how much?" ....
Then you probably can't afford it!
Go try McDonalds"!
    October 6th, 2013 @ 6:41 pm
    bob thats not nice:)
Bob K
October 6th, 2013 @ 6:54 pm
I honestly don't mean to sound harsh!
But these products represent a major leap for those of us who could only have dreamed of this quality of capability just one year ago.
Isn't it time we make at least an attempt to assess where we are at this juncture?
Ali Farahani
October 6th, 2013 @ 7:06 pm
Andrew you are focused on the action genre. But i think there are milions things and ideas that can make with Videocopilot plugins. Plz work some times out of ACTION ...LOL
    October 6th, 2013 @ 8:17 pm
    We mix it up. We had typewriter week and the Flight Kit has HDRI sky maps and great sound effects for sound design. We like to create themes but most of our product have other uses as well.
    October 6th, 2013 @ 8:32 pm
    I'll love how you are able to counter that with "we had typewriter week"...Ali...ya jus got BURNED by the Kramester!
    October 7th, 2013 @ 7:18 am
    Yeah, you've done action, sci-fi, fantasy and horror. You should come up with some products and tutorials that might be useful for romantic comedies or period dramas.

    Personally, I'm itching for a 'Downton Abbey 3D Model Pack', complete with corsets, silver dinnerware, mahogany furniture and a bunch of quails eggs.
Austin Goss
October 6th, 2013 @ 7:43 pm
I have been looking for good models for helicopters, will this bundle include those as well or would that possibly be in the future? Thanks1
    October 6th, 2013 @ 8:17 pm
    This product is primariily Jets but we will be tackling Choppers in the near future.
October 6th, 2013 @ 10:25 pm
Will u upload a tutorial on 8th itself on jetstrike???
October 6th, 2013 @ 9:54 pm
How about breaking the sound barrier and the cone of mist that sourronds the plane? Is that included?
    October 6th, 2013 @ 10:45 pm
    I'm actually planning a tutorial for this effect!
October 6th, 2013 @ 11:12 pm
Are there only fbx and obj as formats? I have E3D but i doesn't work because I don't have the right graphics card, so i work with 3ds and maya.

And how much will it cost ?
October 6th, 2013 @ 11:54 pm
Andrew please do upload a tutorial on 8 on how to use these models..Same way which u did for Metropolitant pack..
Thomas Gynther
October 7th, 2013 @ 12:42 am
Thanks Andrew - for all your inspiration - and very nice Element 3D models...

How do you manages to sync all you sound effects and nice music, with your graphics?

Is it all made in After Effect? Your timing is very good...

Have a nice day all Video Copilots..
October 7th, 2013 @ 12:11 am
It's already tomorrow :D
October 7th, 2013 @ 1:16 am
In the helicopter pack is it possible to make some offshore choppers? You know the kind they use for crew changes. I could really use that ;-) And how about some oil rigs and other industrial stuff/vehicles?
It would be amazing to use element for corporate videos. Now I own element but rarely use it. Mostly I use it for creating logo's. But I think Element will rule the film world!
October 7th, 2013 @ 4:21 am
yeah just one day left for awesome thing which are coming in vcp
October 7th, 2013 @ 5:33 am
there should be a different-timezone support xD where people can download on Oct 8 on their timezone xD.. sorry just freakin excited!

October 8th, 2013 @ 11:34 am
Hi Andrew,
If possible, would you make a quick gallery of all the HDRI map that's in this kit? just want to see what they look like, low res is totally fine =)

October 9th, 2013 @ 11:53 pm
For my first play with Jet Strike, had to recreate a few shots from Top Gun:
October 25th, 2013 @ 4:45 pm
What is the font used for JetStrike? It looks like you used Element 3D to create the titles which I love, but what Font exactly was used? Are the textures inside the text a part of pro shaders?
December 14th, 2013 @ 6:03 am
