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!

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?

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!

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..

    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.

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?

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"!

Please, create a bundle just like this:

METROPOLITAN PACK + JETSTRIKE PACK + SOUND FLIGHT KIT

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?

"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.

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..
    1 year ago
    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.

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? ;)
