Hey Videocopilot-Team!

Could you please tell us some links to understand how we could hardcode our own rigs into 3D-objects? I guess we got a bunch of dudes that would be very thankful for this information.

Greetings and thank you for everything!

Hey Mr.Kramer! :) When do you planning to release landscape and industrial pack? :) We can see those staff long time in your tutorials when you open up Element 3D. Is that a chance to release 2013 xmas? A Happy new year pack? XD This is a good title for the new upcoming pack "Happy new year pack" :D:D

Andrew, did you use fume FX for cloud twisting when the missile shot through it. Is there a way to do that in aftereffects without using fume.
Lo’
2 years ago
Awesome Andrew! You and your Team did a really great job (once more)… I wonder if the mesh visibility works only with your own models or with others ? (Cause this would be very helpful to animate ours as well)

This is amazing work. I was very impressed with the plug-in and the 3D model work, but the release of JetStrike is something else. After completing so commercial work for FOX Sports I'll defiantly be buying the JetStrike pack.

Just one questions... is the Space Shuttle coming soon? Rigging that would be an insane project for your crew.
2 years ago
great update! nice models and great price. Your stuff is amazing!!! I do gently throw my voice behind the request to open source ability to add animation points like your landing gear and flaps sliders for user models. I understand that these models are hard-coded and understand the issues involved in opening that side of the models up in the context of the amazing ease of use E3D provides to users - so it's falling outside of the target main stream users baslcally and would create headaches in tech support and just be hard to ensure no errors... but maybe you could open source that part of element anyway -- 95% of people could then ignore it.. but the hardcore might have some major break throughs????

Anyway a work-around I thought of is that you create a model in C4D that's your main version of the model and then if you want to animate a flap or landing gear of your own model... create an identical version of the model with the animation baked in and swap it out at the keyframe you need - bake in animations are awesome basically

great product sorry for the ramble and well done again!!!

This are some observation questions... I'm trying to learn and take notes.

1) in the wire frame of the air plane it shows a lot of triangulated faces,also this tri faces in the wings are very long and not subdivided.
usually, I would thing any face needs to be subdivided to display the texture,bump and displacement maps better...?

2) the quad faces are machine perfect and similar one big and one small in a perfect grid.

3) what 3d application was used?

will you make a video tutorial showing this techniques? it will be very beneficial... if the tri faces not necessarily need to be subdivided as much it will safe a lot of faces and make the model less heavy... thank you... I am not an advanced modeler, that's why I, may be asking this stupid questions..

Mr. Kramer and staff, in the video above, when the jet goes in the sky and the clouds spiral, I was so impressed by that shot that I had to remake it.

Was it particular? If so-what I did was used a Motion Path, spin it around by linking it to a null object and rotating it-made the emitter a box so I can increase the Z emitter size, and set the particle type to cloudlet, and increase the size a bit. Then I added a vector blur to give it that smoky cloud look. I'm also guessing that you used multiple layers of spiraling clouds/particular.

Am I on the right track? So far I think my attempt is looking pretty good. Because of you guys I've taught myself After Effects for the past year.

Here's a video I made for a competition:

Hi Andrew,
With the level of detail now being offered in the packs, would be possible for a future release of Elements to add more groups to increase the flexibility?
cheers
2 years ago
I find myself being somewhat ambivalent towards this release.
Mainly by the fact that from this preview i can tell that there are around what, 9 3D aircraft models (F22, F16, F18, F35, 737, 747, ac130, F117, MIG29 ), all presented as if they're the new golden iphone.
Thing is, while presenting all 3d models out there as insanely expensive (and people should realise that those who are most of the time deserve their price tag) you are ignoring the plethora of free high quality models offered by nice dudes all over the world on various sites, from turbosquid to tf3dm. I guess I was hoping on some form of alliance between you and the community on this, a la future city pack, with some of the creators even having some benefits from the sale of the pack. Or, since you seem to push element3d towards being a wider ecosystem, some alternative solution like developing a marketplace where people might be able to sell their 3D models in e3d format.
I may be the only ungrateful bast*** who's slightly disappointed about this. I realize my expectations were unreasonably high, but in the end it's your fault for setting the bar there :).

Would it be right to expect exclusive rigs like this one, for the next planned Model Packs? Like the Vehicle Pack? I'm surprised when I see the sliders in Element GUI. Compact solution for sure. But now I know that I can never achieve these animations with my models inside E3D :) I can do it in Cinema and then export though. Thanks for the inspiration, Andrew.

"Both packs available Tomorrow! (Tuesday Oct 8 2013)"

Hey, it's 12:08a.m. (just turned midnight) Tuesday Oct 8th 2013, and I can't buy the above mentioned pack!!!!!!!! :-)

I've been saving up by eating Ramen Noodles morning, noon and night (insert drama here: "and not getting a lick of sleep") since you posted the release date so I can buy this, and its NOT HERE!!!! :-)

Somebody in your organisation lied to me (I'm joking)... OK, prolly didn't think somebody like me would be crazy enough to be up at this hour to buy it..., but you see, I GOT's TO HAVE IT!!!

WARNING... Even though it may appear as such, this really IS NOT a life or death situation. I will probably survive until your normal business hours here is the USA.

And I promise, that when I do download the files, no buildings in the Metropolitan Pack will be (um...) damaged or destroyed via the use of this pack. Disclaimer: I'm lying. Truth be told, can't wait! :-)

Waiting Patently.... Steve

How the eff can you sell this for so little? The rigging on the jets is an amazing feature. I actually created a whole f14 sequence using element last year, this would have made my life so much easier. I paid $160 for just one F14 model with lower res textures and none of the rigging and cool features you guys have included here.

    Using the model below (not-rigged BTW) as a baseline, jetstrike -$124-should cost around $10,000. Think about that for a minute.

    Cheaper model packs means more people can afford them. The more people that buy them, the more money they make. If they sold the pack for $600 then only the serious film makers would buy them and everyone else would pirate. Keeping the price point low enough for an impulse buy, means higher volume sales, lower piracy and more money at the end of the day. That and Video Copilot really loves us, they give us so many free things already. Having a low price is just icing on our cake.
    JMS
    2 years ago
    And the crazy thing is the insanely low prices aren't even the main selling point. If I was given a $1000 budget to find a rigged f-22, I would choose VCP's jetstrike pack NOT to save $, but because of the quality of the models/textures and ease of use regarding the rigging. VCP is the only example I've ever come across where the less you pay, the better the quality. It's like some bizzaro alternate reality.

Can't even wrap my mind around this. Are you going to set it up so people can make their own models with built in rigging too or this going to be an exclusive feature of VC packs??
    2 years ago
    This is an added feature we painfully built into each model to make this pack more useful. The rigs are all hand-coded inside the product so there is no way to open this up in the current version. Every aircraft has different parts and anchor points and it's not something that would be easy to do inside of Element without a major overhaul.

    Absolutely amazes me what you guys are doing with AE. You're almost making VFX too easy! Seriously though as someone who just can't get into the modelling side of VFX, products like this are invaluable, this totally exceeded my very high expectations. Can't wait to see what you have in store on future packs/plugins/versions.

    @Andrew Kramer:
    This is kind of a "maybe" answer :-)
    So, can I do the setup for my own aircrafts inside a 3D-modelling software and edit a kind of "VC setup"-Textfile to get the controls inside of element? Would be great, since the civilian aircraft-models seem to be pretty vintage :-). I need a modern airliner (with winglets) for a personal/commercial project and would love to have all the fancy controls inside of Element...
    Kudos and greeting
    2 years ago
    Not likely. This is just one way I envision it working. I don't know if it is even possible. I just know that we are not close to implementing bones and inverse kinematics and joints into Element 3D in order to support what is needed.
    ActionPlanetRobot
    2 years ago
    Andrew- in theory, I think you could do it in a similar manner as the "Custom Anchor Point Control" added in v1.5.

    Allow the designer to selectively point on the aircraft where the anchor point for the rudder, aileron, etc should be. Just my thought.
    Jeremy Abbott
    2 years ago
    Side note - I'm guessing since it says "Fully rigged 3D jet models" on the splash image that the rigging is included in the additional model formats as well?
    2 years ago
    Actually The rigs are not setup with slider but the anchor points are set for most objects to be animated like canopy and flaps. The problem is not all rigging translates to other 3D programs so it is not possible to recreate our rigs exactly.
    2 years ago
    Can you give us some pointers on how to set up the rig inside individual models at least? I know that for my work in the automotive industry, I'm going to try to figure this out on my own anyway. It's just too handy of a feature not to try and hack together. Just some pointers. We're smart. We can figure it out from there. ;) :) (in other words, if I open up an E3D object, is this something I can figure out on my own? I'd rather have an SDK tho.... Yes, I'm spoiled... You spoil us and now we want more... ;)
