Creating particles in After Effects is awesome! We have all used Particular and Particle world but why not combine those particles with some real ones! Sometimes you need to create elements that are so complex and organic that you are better off taking out the camera and making a mess.
In this example we use a little bit of flour to mix things up!
Last week we released a promotional film for our new iPhone app: “Demon Cam”!
Watch Demon Cam Film
Much like our Demon Face Warp tutorial, this new app allows you to record a video and transform someone into a Demon of your choice. To help people learn to use the app, we created a film with a supernatural back-story and more importantly, a platform to create some fun visual effects. Before watching the behind the scenes, you should probably watch the short film first. Watch Demon Cam.
Now that the project is released, we are excited to share the behind-the-scenes video, outlining everything that went into creating the effects as well as the app design.
As planned we will be breaking down many of the VFX shots for complete Video Copilot tutorials over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for that!

We’re gonna try!
In 2010 we celebrated 5 and a half years of Video Copilot so to celebrate we’re going to imply this blog show is somehow intended to be a big celebration. It has everything, action, adventure, music, surprises and even out-takes!
Please check it and feel free to share your favorite Video Copilot moments and memories in the comments!
You know that part in a movie where some guy gets sliced up with a sword and you can see a big cut across his ninja shirt?… Well usually they do some fancy editing where he has a robe without a slash and then it cuts to a close up where the shirt now has a big rip… This actually works really well, especially with a nice sound effect. But I wanted to do the slicing all in one continuous take using computer technology!
How would you do it?
