Free Future City Pack!

The future is here! Our community-built Future City pack is now available. I want to personally thank everyone who contributed and submitted their work for this pack.

Sorry it took longer than expected, we had a lot of files to sort through and optimize to work in Element and organize into one place but here it is!

Download Future City Pack and Information

The pack contains a variety of 30 buildings to create stunning futuristic city sky-lines inside Element 3D. Some models feature high resolution textures and others have lower resolution and work better for distant buildings. Experiment for best results! Remember be thankful to all those who worked on these!

There is a lot of variety and you can even user the Element 3D replicator, you can create some fun combinations like above.

Be sure you are running the latest version of Element 3D V1.6

That is really awesome. Thanks for providing this pack for us!
    December 19th, 2013 @ 12:58 pm
    This is awesome. None of my VFX films could've been possible without VideoCopilot. Really utilized the VC tutorials in this one:
    December 19th, 2013 @ 4:45 pm
    Good work everyone. special thanks to all who contributed!

    Wow! Happy winter solstice! Thank you so much video copilot community of artists. This is very generous and I appreciate your efforts.
    December 20th, 2013 @ 1:59 pm
    Thank you everyone who created this, and thanks VCP for allowing this to happen. What a great creative community we have.
    December 22nd, 2013 @ 7:32 am
    Amazing work! Thanks for all resources provided!
    December 24th, 2013 @ 9:43 am
    So, Element is a great value but it really slogs down in AE. I may have something configured wrong but things are too slow to be practical. I hope to be able to buy the new Mac Pro soon. For now, that is my fix unless someone has an idea on settings. The weird thing is everything is fast in Element but as soon as I go to AE the 3D is very slow.
    December 24th, 2013 @ 11:26 am
    Email support with some info and let's check it out.
December 19th, 2013 @ 1:43 pm
Wow! So stoked. I am a regular VC customer and enjoy all of your plugins (including the metro pack). Take a look at some of my work:

I'm so thankful for the VC community. There's so many great resources available here.
December 19th, 2013 @ 1:46 pm
Great addition to the Metropolitan pack I got!
    December 19th, 2013 @ 1:52 pm
    For sure! Metropolitan has some killer roof details and textures but the future buildings are perfect for creating sci-fi worlds!

    Our product Metropolitan also includes 3D formats for C4D, Max and FBX which saves a ton of time. The future city packe pack is only optimized for E3D but the OBJ files and textures can be recreated to use in most 3D programs as well.
    December 19th, 2013 @ 1:00 pm
    Thanks so much for including the extra 3d formats! I might optimize some of the buildings for VRay in C4D... Hehe...
December 19th, 2013 @ 1:47 pm
great, thanks guys you are the best
December 19th, 2013 @ 1:49 pm
Stunning work!

Thank you and merry christmas to you all!
December 19th, 2013 @ 1:51 pm
Awesome. Thank you. we love element 3D pack.
December 19th, 2013 @ 1:55 pm
Most awesome. This will be an enjoyable christmas toy! :D Thanks for the hard work, guys!
December 19th, 2013 @ 1:58 pm
Thanks! Looks great. Now we just need some cars and emergency vehicles… ;)
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:01 pm
thank you for this christmas gift !!
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:09 pm
Can you share how many total users contribute to the pack beside the 30 that was chosen? just curious :)
    December 19th, 2013 @ 1:10 pm
    To be honest, not that many more. A few were too similar or not quite finished enough with textures that we tried to limit what we released to keep the download small. Still 800MBs though!

December 19th, 2013 @ 2:12 pm
Just in time for Christmas haha. Thanks guys!
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:19 pm

December 19th, 2013 @ 2:23 pm

December 19th, 2013 @ 2:26 pm
Thanks very much all contributors for this christmas gift.
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:32 pm
Wow, woot, woot! Bring it on!
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:36 pm
Very great stuff Andrew! Thanks :D
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:39 pm
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:39 pm
Will there be any tutorials for this package?

Maybe how to combine Metropolitan and this package, or how to make a good looking futuristic city sky-line?

Anyway thanks to all that have worked with this package!

December 19th, 2013 @ 2:39 pm
andrew never disappoint you ... thank you
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:40 pm
Thanks Andrew for this free model pack. It's always fun with and your Element 3D. I love the application and am looking forward over again on new tips and tricks.
Merry Christmas and all the best for 2014. Keep it up :-)

Kind regards from Germany :-)
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:51 pm
Thanks all! And merry Christmas!
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:54 pm
I have no idea how to install this please help
December 19th, 2013 @ 2:56 pm
Thank you Andrew, i can´t believe my model is there (Josue Gonzalez)
December 19th, 2013 @ 3:09 pm
Happy Birthday to me! :)

Thanks to all who contributed, and thanks to Kramer and team for donating their time to optimize for E3D! Y'all are awesome!
Christoph Defryn
December 19th, 2013 @ 3:20 pm
Wow, that is a great job!
Thank you all contributors and VideoCopilot for making this a reallity, I was working with some free models found on the web, but this is gonna be a real timesaver for my upcoming short!

Thanks again guys and have a nice holyday season!
December 19th, 2013 @ 3:30 pm
the atlas.1 ambient occlusion JPG isn't there... Any way I could get that?
    Christoph Defryn
    December 19th, 2013 @ 3:20 pm
    You are correct, it is missing!
    December 19th, 2013 @ 4:31 pm
    It should be included in the download now. Thanks for spotting that!
    December 20th, 2013 @ 7:02 am
December 19th, 2013 @ 3:56 pm
..... Thanks to all who participated in this achievement and special thanks ANDREW ......
December 19th, 2013 @ 4:13 pm
Smashin' ma head to the wall! This is truly awesome!
December 19th, 2013 @ 4:19 pm
Set extension is really fast, easy and powerful with this stuffs! I can't even imagine how much you guys can go further! Maybe a plugin named "Just think and I'll make that 3D myself!" soon!?
    Christoph Defryn
    December 19th, 2013 @ 3:26 pm
    Actually, if you can use a 3D editing package, you can easelly rig it in E3D! Import your baked 3D Object, texture it and set as a preset model, no more to it actually!
    December 20th, 2013 @ 10:52 am
    what is the 3D editing package? How will we edit it?
    Christoph Defryn
    December 20th, 2013 @ 11:16 am
    A software like Cinema 4D or so ......
December 19th, 2013 @ 4:35 pm
I would like to give a big thanks to all who provided this valuable collection of works in 3d, also thanks to its creators, to Andrew Kramer and Video Copilot Group for making this possible and allow more and more people can get into this spectacular world of visual effects. To all of you a whirlwind of good times and beautiful creations. Congratulations and Kramerry Christmas!!
December 19th, 2013 @ 4:45 pm
Awesome! Great to finally see the finished product in all its glory. Thanks VC and everyone who contributed.

Merry Xmas!
December 19th, 2013 @ 4:55 pm

December 19th, 2013 @ 5:09 pm
Andrew, you are positively the best person ever. Many, many thanks for all that you've given the community.
December 19th, 2013 @ 5:09 pm
oh so this is why you have been so silent these past few months xDD.. awesome as always!
December 19th, 2013 @ 4:10 pm
Can't wait to get home!!! Git a bonus today at work and was going to purchase Action Flares Bundle and Twitch, and now I see that the Future City Pack is our now as well???!!! Now I really can't wait to get home!!!!
December 19th, 2013 @ 5:13 pm
Man this is super awesome! Big thanks to everyone involved in this project!
December 19th, 2013 @ 5:34 pm
awesome job to everyone who contributed..
December 19th, 2013 @ 5:44 pm
Amazing!! Thank you so much for all the hard work you guys do! I'm so excited, I may have to call out sick tomorrow to start working with these.
December 19th, 2013 @ 5:45 pm
Thank you everyone who contributed! I am going to live on the outskirts of a future city someday, so this will get me ready. Thanks and Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!
December 19th, 2013 @ 5:46 pm
Thanks so much for organizing this. Was computer-less at the time, so couldn't contribute.

Would love a round 2 of this, but would also love to suggest the next event to be a Post Apocalypse pack. Destroyed buildings would be amazing. Or a Sci Fi vehicles pack.

I am just getting into Element 3D, but it seems it would be possible to make custom buildings models using Element. Am I crazy for thinking this? Would make a great tutorial. Or at least a quick tutorial on how to make sure whatever we build is to the correct specs.

Also, A video about a VFX workflow for indie/no-budget folks would be tremendously helpful to us all.

Thanks again so much for this. It will really add to my genre film-making efforts. Like they said in Super 8, "PRODUCTION VALUE!!!!!!"

Great job team and contributors!
    December 22nd, 2013 @ 11:22 am
    Destroyed buildng .. is cool ,,,
    elysium :D
December 19th, 2013 @ 5:59 pm
Usually I don't do this, but this was a ton of work:

Video Copilot saved my life with their cool products, thanks a lot!

    December 20th, 2013 @ 5:52 am
    Nice work on the Music clip!

    Thank you VCP team!! Legends! Marry Christmas and happy holidays to all!
    December 20th, 2013 @ 4:33 pm
    Well done mate!
    December 21st, 2013 @ 12:50 pm
    Well done, but for your next project try to get more creative with changing the Action Essentials look. I can tell the fire was just dropped ontop of the sky scrapers, and any one else who knows action essentials will see the same thing. It was more of a detraction from what was going on a times than a good looking effect. Otherwise the fireballs and what not looked good and fit well. Keep it up .
    December 30th, 2013 @ 12:32 pm
    Great job, are you going to post the making of the video? I loved the AE camera movements.
    Vinnie K
    December 31st, 2013 @ 7:39 am
    This is a great video with good vfx and colour blending settings.

    @ Bobfab
    The effects are just great. Only the people here on VC recognizes the fires and for this video they do the trick nicely.. Considering working within AE and E3D this is great.... if you don't have Nuke or Houdini or whatever. Let's see where you come up with....
December 19th, 2013 @ 7:32 pm
I'm just getting started in video this website is amazing. Tutorials, Free model packs, and plug-ins that are so user friendly even I can find my way around them. Thanx
December 19th, 2013 @ 8:29 pm
How weird, I was just thinking about this today and when it was going to come out?
December 19th, 2013 @ 8:53 pm
I love you Andrew Kramer!!!!!!!!!!
December 19th, 2013 @ 8:54 pm
I didn't know I could contribute :( Maybe next time although I'll log in to the forum more. Thanks a lot for this. :)

December 19th, 2013 @ 9:35 pm
Im sure this is probably somewhere else in your blog or comments somewhere but, do you think you could show us how to keep these organized. I have the zip and opened it but im not sure where to go from there. Im fairly new at this.
    December 19th, 2013 @ 8:42 pm
    and just like that i need to read more... haha nvm
The real smithy
December 19th, 2013 @ 8:56 pm
I would like to say thank you for the video copilot community for this awesome pack and for video copilot staff for putting it all together. Sorry I couldn't send some of my work in, hopefully the next community pack. Have a great Christmas everyone and see you all in 2014 :)
December 19th, 2013 @ 10:00 pm
Thank you for the FUTURE CITY PACK. Great job by the contributors and the team that put this together. Merry Christmas to everyone.

Finally, it's here... :D Many thanks to all those who worked on it and of course VC team... Now curious about new Flight School Tutorials... Any chance of new tutorials in 2013???
    December 22nd, 2013 @ 11:25 am
    I really hope so too! I hope for another fume fx tutorial, with building collapsing using ray-fire.

    A Big Merry Christmas to you all pushing-limits-folks out there. Also want to thank Matt Kramer again for helping me with some tech-support recently.

    Rock on!
December 20th, 2013 @ 1:17 am

December 20th, 2013 @ 3:13 am
Hi everyone,
thank you for this great package. But to be sure, i have one question:
Is this package totally free for commercial use?

Thanks in advance for an official reply.

Kind regards
December 20th, 2013 @ 3:27 am

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy 2014

best regards from Germany
    December 21st, 2013 @ 1:16 am
    May take longer, since VC Team is re-writing the render code, shadow solutions, and other features. Well in my opinion of course. But none of the VC Products disappoint. I think it will be worth the wait ;)
Andy Reebock
December 20th, 2013 @ 5:58 am
Thank you very much Andrew!!!

I´m already looking forward to the tutorial.
Lukas Srovic
December 20th, 2013 @ 6:05 am
the effect in the center of the picture looks exactly like your plug-in "heat distortion".

thank you for this cool models.
December 20th, 2013 @ 6:33 am
Thank you guys! best Christmas gift :)
December 20th, 2013 @ 6:34 am
Hi, under what license are these models? Your other 3d models have some restrictions regarding selling renders that include the models, which make them very uninteresting. What about this pack that is created by the community?
December 20th, 2013 @ 7:25 am
Thanks to everyone who contributed! Merry Christmas!
Jim Hines
December 20th, 2013 @ 8:37 am
I have to leave another comment. I just unpacked the package and I'm loading the models into E3D. These are really, really, great. I can not express my gratitude enough. Thank you contributing 3D artists and VC Team. Spectacular!
December 20th, 2013 @ 8:44 am
Thanks so much to everyone who worked on these! They look amazing! Your all champions! Special thanks to Andrew and the Video Copilot for all the hard work to put this all together. I love your site, your products and everything you guys do.

Best Regards,

December 20th, 2013 @ 8:05 am
A very cool pack.

Another idea would be an apocolypse pack or a pack inspired by tolkiens hobbit.
December 20th, 2013 @ 11:12 am
On your last post about element 3d V2, you wrote "we will come to this later this year...". Are we going to get something about that in 2013 or early 2014? :) Really excited about real shadows and other cool stuff you included! :P Thank you
December 20th, 2013 @ 11:48 am
Thanks for this great Christmaspresent.
I'm looking forward for the new tutorials.
Greetings from Germany
December 20th, 2013 @ 12:40 pm
Great stuff Andrew. What ever happened to twitch for cs6? How do you work around not having it or do you have a computer with cs3 on it just for that occasion?

December 20th, 2013 @ 1:10 pm

Thank you very much andrew
December 20th, 2013 @ 2:15 pm
Hey Guys, I just bought Element 3D (Jet Strike and Metro) when you had it on sale. After I unzip these, how do I install this?
    December 20th, 2013 @ 1:22 pm
    and I mean install the future city pack..
    December 20th, 2013 @ 3:14 pm
    Once downloaded, unzip the folder to Documents/VideoCopilot/Models and then they can be accessed through the Element Model Browser.
    December 20th, 2013 @ 5:20 pm
    Hey Dustin! Thanks man - I saw that I had to left click the "Download Future City Pack and Information" tab - I originally had right clicked and "Saved As"
    December 22nd, 2013 @ 1:39 pm
December 20th, 2013 @ 3:13 pm
Wonderful. I wonder if the next one could be castles and old medieval buildings. That would be fun :)
December 20th, 2013 @ 4:35 pm
This activity was very amazing, you should do it again! ;)
December 20th, 2013 @ 5:08 pm
I'm so thankful of everyone who worked on this whole pack and VideoCopilot who planned this, it was a great idea! :D This is awesome!
December 20th, 2013 @ 5:22 pm
Cool my model is in there : ) You can also animate parts of my building:
December 20th, 2013 @ 5:27 pm
Wow, these are great! Awesome job to all who contributed! And thanks AK and your team for all the work that went into this freebie!
December 20th, 2013 @ 4:36 pm

December 20th, 2013 @ 7:40 pm
Thank you, your staff and the community for making this happen. Can't wait to check it out.
December 21st, 2013 @ 12:17 am
I hope the Video Copilot team keeps encouraging and organizing more of these community packs soon.

How about a Community pack that features Military Buildings!
(control towers, hangers, sam sites, bunkers etc..)

Makes sense right... After all where are we going to land the models from the upcoming chopper pack?
December 20th, 2013 @ 11:48 pm
Does Element 3D works with Intel graphics?
December 21st, 2013 @ 1:37 am
Thanks too people who contributed to this. And thanks Andrew & team for coming up with this amazing idea.

Christmas has indeed arrived early - Many thanks to all you clever chaps / chapettes for sharing these wonderful designs - If I ever manage to master how to make a 'new solid' I shall use these for sure - lol

Many thanks Andrew & the V.C. Team
December 21st, 2013 @ 5:08 am
Thanks all who work in thus Projekt! My skills in 3D Programmes are to Bad to Build such things!

Ok i think its Time for a vote for the next Element 3D Community Pack
I think Militärbuildings are cool or some Starship Models , European buildings i Need😃
What do You think about it.?

Sorry Andrew New Work for you!
December 21st, 2013 @ 8:41 am
Hey Andrew, can you make a tutorial in which you teach us how to create complex models like this?

Can this be done in element 3d
    Xhekkhar MAGHADE
    December 26th, 2013 @ 9:13 am
    Ya. but with Element 3D you can do better than this... Really Awesome Plug-in
December 21st, 2013 @ 4:21 pm
Awesome! Would love to see a post apocalyptic buildings package in the future (either free user created or paid Video Copilot version)
December 21st, 2013 @ 6:34 pm
The Normals seem messed up on the Future Tower 04 column at the top of the building. I'm not sure if any one else has commented on this, I don't have time to read through all the comments. Could you please take a look at this building again and make sure the Normals are correct on the top column? Only one of them seems to be messed up. Thanks.
    December 21st, 2013 @ 5:36 pm
    In fact it's the whole side of that tower, if you move around the tower things disappear on that one side suggesting there is an issue.
December 22nd, 2013 @ 12:48 am
Awesome! a big thanks to all the contributors and Andrew&team who spent times creating and optimizing with e3d!
December 22nd, 2013 @ 1:04 am
'didn't make the cut... :(
December 22nd, 2013 @ 6:54 am
Awesome. Thank you. we love element 3D pack.
December 22nd, 2013 @ 7:38 am
Would it be nice to provide it with a torrent file? Will be much faster as downloading 800 Mb in one go is heavy..... It would be of great help :)

Thanks :D

Great addition
I asked once before ,, now again ,, plxx tell how you make so small and fast models,
coz when i make a model in 3Dstudio max its so much polyygon + heavy that it loads too slow
December 22nd, 2013 @ 3:20 pm
Looks like the new design for the new 2028 Mac Pro "Barrel" ?.?.?
December 22nd, 2013 @ 8:03 pm
This is 800MB of Awesomeness! Thanks Andrew for this.

December 22nd, 2013 @ 9:15 pm
Great pack thanks everyone who contributed!

Bit late for my Wipeout PS4 Concept

but had a go at Recreating Vekta in KZ Shadowfall which came up nicely
December 23rd, 2013 @ 2:37 am
Great pack, I do own Element 3d but I also want to be able to use these cool buildings in my university projects. They won't let me use Element on those projects so I have to use them natively in 3ds max. I was wondering when I import the obj files, there is no mtl files only jpegs, I'm having trouble re-linking the files to the models. Any help would be much appreciated. an example on one of the buildings would be helpful thanks.
December 23rd, 2013 @ 4:39 am
Awesome ! Thank you to all the contributors and the VideoCopilot team !

I just have one question : I can't find files like the Metropolitan skies for the back-grounds.

Again, thank you ! I'm not a 3D artist so this pack is a wonderful idea !

Fantastic!! Many Thanks to all who contributed to this!!

Thank you to the Artist Community for freely giving. This is a kickass product.

Thank you VC for providing the platform to use these models. I was wondering if in the future you have plans to setup an exchange library for E3D?
Element 3D has rocked the post world. This plugin is probably the best since Trapcode came up with Particular.

Thank you

Thanks a lot for this beautiful gift! And Merry Christmas to all!

An amazing try out with this project. It all comes together.

I sincerely wish I could have contributed but I lack experience in real 3D modelling. This is awesome!
Thanks for all your input to all VC Junkies out there.

Someone here suggested to create an Element Library. Wouldn't that be great to have 3D models (animated, rigged etc.) in the cloud, created by the community, accessible with your VC account?? Upload it to VC, VC optimizes it for the use in E3D where we all pay a couple of bucks for per pack or download.

This is completely awesome as always!
Just an idea, but if you ever do something like this again, I think a POST-APOCALYPTIC city pack would be an excellent choice for a theme...

Keep up the amazing stuff!
December 26th, 2013 @ 10:02 am
Great pack, really love it, but is there a quick way to install the models in E3D other than importing and texturing then saving as a model preset one by one?

Thanks again for all the great tutorials and freebies!
    December 27th, 2013 @ 7:19 am
    Go to the Video Copilot folder on your computer and then into the 'Models' folder, add a new folder (I named mine Buildings) then into this place all the files from the download package. When you open E3D next the models will be there with textures pre-applied. (Make sure you have the .E3D files, .OBJ files and the maps folder)

    That stranges Nick cause I downloaded it, put the entire map in the VC folders (My Models) and E3D showed all models completely textured.

    Maybe your map isn't complete or the file corrupt.

The download link doesn't work? This is offline or something, can't download the pack. Should it be working?
    December 31st, 2013 @ 11:11 am
    OK, it's working now, sorry!

This pack is really awesome! Thank you Andrew :) :) :)

Merci beaucoup a tous et bonne année!
January 4th, 2014 @ 6:34 am
Hey It doesn't have an installer, I'm not really a tech guy so where should I place these files in order for after effect to find them?
    January 7th, 2014 @ 10:15 am
    Unzip the folder and place it at the Documents/VideoCopilot/Models folder.
January 4th, 2014 @ 12:59 pm

Hey, Andrew, I love all your work, especially your "rigged aircraft", but, just an idea, isn't more usefull, for the "every day vfx labor", buses, bikes and cars(not just the wheels), even a rigged exploding car will be great(an animated OBJ), like your tutorials.
Or differents model, one brand new, another one rust, or broken, I think that will be a great package, also animate OBJ with broken glass or blood like it was an "Action 3"
I think you change the we see the After Effects, and I'll love planes, and Sci Fi, but maybe, not always we have the opportunity to use planes or a futuristic, and incredible free package, i'm tenting to buy you all the staff, always trying to convincing my bosses, but a police car rigged, with the licght an an animated texture with bullet holes, and them explodin....aaaaaah, I like how it's sounds.
January 6th, 2014 @ 9:39 pm
Thanks a million for this pack and keep 'em coming!
Just ordered the full-blown Mac Pro- 12 cores,64G RAM,PCIe Flash storage, Thunderbolt and Dual AMD FirePro D700 GPUs with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM each. Can't wait to unleash it on AE and E3D when I finally get it next month. Element, Optical Flares and all the groovy VC packs have become an essential part of my daily Slate science reports and other projects.
Happy Dang New Year all!
January 7th, 2014 @ 3:50 am

Thank's a bunch to the Video copilot team for putting this together and to all the people who contributed with models!
Here's a small clip I made using some of these models:
January 12th, 2014 @ 4:20 am
Thanks for this, here's something I did using this great free pack..

The spacecraft are from a good free collection at :

Many of which are in obj format , so can drop right into element.

Thanks to everyone who contributed a model to the city..
January 12th, 2014 @ 4:21 am
Whoops, here's the model site link
January 15th, 2014 @ 10:50 am
Great job! Thank you Andrew to make this happen and thanks to all the contributors
January 17th, 2014 @ 7:54 am
hey Andrew I was hoping to purchase your element package and other stuff here but I don't have a credit card. Do you have other options like Western Union?..hope to hear from you soon..God Bless :)

Hey Andrew, I realy like to make VFX videos but im 16 and I cant buy Element 3D.. Can your give it to me please....:/
I realy am a big fan and your videos and tutorials help me alot.. If you did this it will mean a LOT TO ME!! Love your work

January 22nd, 2014 @ 9:17 pm
This was a great idea. I wonder if the next thing you might want to crowd source is the SciFi AME! People could donate elements, SFX, presets, tutorials. Might be fun and not require everyone to know how do 3D models! Just a thought!
January 29th, 2014 @ 4:25 pm
just included your website in an article about best after effects tutorials resources here :
February 2nd, 2014 @ 4:02 am
I wish there was a tutorial for beginners like me as the building don't look as cool as they are in the image. So how can we create such a scene?!
February 7th, 2014 @ 8:46 pm
Andrew, These packs are all great. Will you ever be releasing a "medieval fantasy" pack? With medieval(ish) houses, castles, buildings, etc? I would purchase this with $$$ in 10 seconds. You have some cool fantasy tutorials on here, so I thought I would ask...!
February 17th, 2014 @ 2:51 pm
Any one has this city in a plan in After Effects ?
Please share
February 19th, 2014 @ 1:50 am
I want to get your help, please, I want to do is launch rocket flight out of the fire, but do not true.
February 27th, 2014 @ 11:06 pm
After effect of the proposed system to work with?
Rendering speed dial??
February 28th, 2014 @ 9:44 am
Amazing package, thank you very much Andrew. And of course big thanks to the community too :)

I have alreday great results.
March 4th, 2014 @ 11:16 pm
Thanks to VC community for creating awesome pack & thanks again for providing it free of cost...
March 5th, 2014 @ 12:29 pm
Always amazing freebies and great work Andrew. You are THA MAN
March 7th, 2014 @ 11:54 pm
Awesome ! Thank you to all the contributors and the VideoCopilot team !
April 8th, 2014 @ 3:45 am
Hey Andrew, I love this pack!! but could you do a short tutorial showing how we could use these models in Cinema4D?
April 17th, 2014 @ 9:43 am
What did you do for the red coming out of the middle? Is it a flare?
April 17th, 2014 @ 9:44 am
I tried to recreate it by dragging one down to the bottom of the later then stretching the layer and moving it up.
April 22nd, 2014 @ 4:55 pm
do I re-texture these buildings in maya? isn't that bit complicated because it won't load the models with textures on it?
May 5th, 2014 @ 8:28 am
great work guys......a big big thanks to everyone for providing this....
