Cinematic Titles Tutorial Teaser!

One step closer! Here is what we will be creating in the new tutorial series!

Of all the tutorials I’ve made, this one has evolved the most from it’s conception (several months ago) and has even surprised me at how far it could go! Especially with the cracks and growing moss…. Many strange tricks went into this one!!

One thing I love about making these short teasers is they give you the chance to test out your idea. How does it hold up in different designs or even different backgrounds.  I try to make every concept well-rounded… A good idea is always better when you test in the real world!

First Tutorial will be out tomorrow!

So ok...I've just had enough...
I've been watching and reading for months, all of this and people complaining about "blah blah blah..you're not on schedule and you said...blah blah".
You are just a bunch of leeches waiting for something to happen to just rip the work of the man.
You are clearly waiting on something that is free and complaining...and it makes me sick.
I'd be bitching about a product that I bought with no customer service. But heyyyy! Newsflash : this ain't a product!.
THIS IS FREE! And you'll probably have the project files so....
If you ARE the ones complaining, that probably means you don't have anything else to do with your life and that probably means your work ain't that good after all...
So...just shut the F++k up and wait. Do something with your life (like...productive...) and once the tutorial is out, then you'll be able to bitch again because...hey...where's the next tutorial to rip of off?? Right?
Only..just the amount of work he put into that teaser just should put you into overdrive and try to figure it out.
But why would you do that right?
Because you are a bunch of trolls, and you will never do anything productive with all the tips he gave you...
Oh...a another topic...where's intercept? F+++ers...

Definition of "Tomorrow"
Tomorrow:
Part of the day from sunrise to noon or approaching a near future.
Tomorrow according to ANDREW KRAMER!
A dystopian future based on a world without time!!

    Yeah seriously, There is so much features Element can do that Andrew hasnt mention or if he did it was wasnt detailed enough, I would love to see some tutorials on Element and of course some new models.

    Also, between the documentation, YouTube tutorials, and experimentation... are you really waiting for Andrew to explain everything?

This is like Inception, every delay is a new layer deeper. Andrew must feel so bad. Hey don't worry we are not going anywhere ;)

Yeah, take your time AK! - the man IS a legend! an inspiration to us all and a true pioneer - he achieves regular groundbreaking results, quality over quantity every time, look!, there's over a week to his massively anticipated speech in Vegas (NAB) he'll get it done for then ladies - calm down!...the MAIN meat of the matter will be E3D - V3 - Now that IS exiting news.
I get that AK's is a AE god, just, don't pester him too much, though.

Nobody is denying the genius and generosity of Andrew Kramer and the VCP team. It is just a pity that these deadlines are being set at all and then missed - creating some disappointment in those disciples waiting for Andrew's great work :)

Andrew Kramer.....
.....
I for one look forward to EVERY SINGLE TUTORIAL you make.
I respect your work ethic, and the matter that you are constantly INSPIRED and coming up with new INNOVATIVE ideas as you near completion in your projects.
DO ALL OF IT.

Though I respect their importance, I am not concerned with EXACT timelines, and deadlines....
I am MORE concerned with gift of your free knowledge and methodology.
In contrast to projected deadlines, I am more concerned with the completeness and vastness of the tutorials and ideas you provide to us as learners...... THANK YOU.

You are a treasure, my friend.......

You make more possible for us!!!!

"the first tutorial will be out tomorrow!" - Posted 2 days ago... I know you're a busy dude and are doing this for free and all that, but to be honest... It get's kind of annoying. I think at this point it's better not to say anything and just release it when a tutorial is done... We all remember intercept...

I have been doing your tutorials since I had to fight cancer. They had to remove my vocal cords, and lost the ability to talk clearly. Motion Graphics is now my source of income. I am doing 30 animations to show off my work. I did these animation, based on you tutorial:

@andrewkramer has been fulfilling my dreams,
Just imagine how the possibility that it makes another side of the planet, makes it possible.
I understand that we are moved macumba What is VFX and that my idea is to create something monstrously ... a 3d renderer for the after effects or a dynamic link with some GPU rendering platform ... AE + E3D + Octane render or Keyshot 8 : D... #google traslate

O @andrewkramer tem estado a realizar os meus sonhos,
Basta eu imaginar as possibilidade que ele ai do outro lado do planeta, torna possível.
Entendo que somos movidos macumba Zeitgest VFX e que me palpita que estejas a desenvolver algo monstruoso... um renderizador 3d para o after effects ou um link dinâmico com alguma plataforma de renderização GPU… AE + E3D + Octane render ou Keyshot 8 :D

It has always, ALWAYS been worth the wait. For those of you who are new to Video CoPilot, if Andrew is late delivering something (software or tutorial) you can sure you're going to get something of extremely high quality when he eventually brings it out.

I am a big fan of VC. Not for free stuff actually, Its about the best teacher I have ever found. Just love his work and thinking.

But I have a feeling for these type of tutorial which is base on Built in plugin.
We are actually spending much time to find out the built in capabilities. Someone help me understand if I'm wrong.
    3 weeks ago
    Yes, he does phenomenal things and explains them well, and in an entertaining way.
    I'm not sure what you have a concern with, the fact you can do these things without buying a 3rd party plug in? (not everyone can afford to do that). He's just showing you a way of doing something, efficiently, effectively, without buying something else. Pushing the capabilities of AE. There are always many ways to get to an end result, this one is FREE. :)
