Hi Andrew, One of your fans on aftereffects and 3dsmax. I would like to know if we make a environment in 3d with mountains then do we have to put clouds effect in 3ds max or after effects like in movies (Avatar, Avengers)
Please specify

Excellent tutorial! Boss you always been a help to me! Thank you very much! without your tutorial I would have been nowhere! people like us, those have little scope and not enough money for affording vfx tuition, your tutorial saving them from not being uprooted from industry. Good bless you!

Love this tutorial man... really great work... Only question I've got is can you use the data from Camera Tracker to stabilize your shot?... that is if you don't have a perfect fly over stock footage.

You presumably sat through the entire 50 mins of this tutorial, and this is the comment that occurred to you the most sensible to make? Your opinion of the screen capture software's configuration? That's what those 50 mins seared indelibly into your head? Well, I agree that something is indeed disconcerting here.

Jesus
10/09/2013
Roy. I think you should be more respectful with the person that has embrace endless hours of self training and observation, not just to become one of the best in this field, but also to pass his legacy for FREE!!! to all of us.
Mr. Kramer owns the rights for his tutorials and he can do what ever he wants with then and into them, so respectfully Sr. Fuck your self!!! get better than him and make your own tutorials! Asshole!

The newest release of The Foundry Camera Tracker crashes continuously on new HP Z820 computer running Win 7. After working closely with them,The Foundry cant seem to fix the problem I am experiencing.DO NOT BUY without first testing on your system. Especially the new Sandy Bridge EP line.

Is it possible to anyone tell me how his daughter made the moutains on photoshop ? I have no idea of how I can do that, nor I have a 3 year-old daughter to do it for me =p ... Thanks already everyone!

I dont know but the mountains and the stock footage are in the project files :)

Lol, Cameratracker isn't even needed in CS6 now since it has a built in 3D camera tracker. xD
ChazBowie
05/30/2012
I was curious, Would it also be possible to simply mask out some of the mountains and save them on separate layers, then proceed with some of the work you are doing, or would that be too much to animate? I can chop this scene up very quickly and layer it... I am a bit of a noob so I cannot look ahead to see if this would end up being more work or not...

I really like your tutorials. Thanks! Your voice is easy to understand, and you make an effort to thoroughly explain most things.

Remember that when you made this tutorial the footage on artbeats was for free. It is a shame that it is so expensive now. Nevertheless an amazing tutorial, this will be a really useful skill. Thanks a lot for all your tutorials and making the learning curve of AE much easier!

I did your 3D Set Extension (Mountain)! Thank you very much.
Pierre
02/04/2012
After setting the mountain shot to Alpha, it doesn't "mask" the valley. I review the tuto a couple of time to see that under the black solid in the Mask layer you have an option that said ADD and I don't have it (I am CS5). Is it for that that it doesn't work. If yes how to solve that. Thank you

I think this tutorial is somewhat unfair, not alot of people have 300+ for footage just to do a tutorial.

all well and good going to artbeats.com to get this footage, but it costs almost 300 bucks!

Your daughter is definitely unique when it comes to 3 year olds. She walks up to a group, they say they just learned how to change their dolls' hair color, she says that she learned how to merge photoshop layers and do some advanced color compositing and 3dsMaxing. LOL!

Eve
11/16/2011
I really Love your amazing tutorials though i find it distracting to see your face and have to cover screen with a post-it note. Also it covers up a lot of the after effects layers area, i don't understand the logic for this? I prefer it when you don't do this, please please stop doing this, many thanks

Hello, i see that tutorial, and i try make that, but exist a error. When you create the roto, alpha matte, dont work with the Grid effect. I try many times, and dont work, so i trun off the Grid and works. With Grid all "Solid" is black.

CAMERATRACKER
dont work in cs4? :s
Only for cs5.
I dont use sc5 because i dont have 64bits, so i need cs4, 32bits.

=/
Adrian
10/05/2011
Blah Me too! if u did end up getting 64 bit can u please help me how to?
Aamir
09/03/2011
You know you can change it to 64bit by installin the 64bit version of windows , linux .etc

and so you don't have to lose your files ( or put a whole computer in to your external hard drive ) , make and image of it . to download it like alcohol 120% or virtual clone drive . if you don't know what an image is just search about it on google .


p.s after making the image , format it , download 64bit , and then download the image.
