I love this! And I have already seen this on YouTube in a video. I was following the tutorial video and I missed something so I started again and then I saw something that I do not understand.

OK, sorry if this has been, mentioned, but I didn't see anything in the comments. At time 5:05 there are four layers and layer (1) is Particle Waves, then suddenly at time 5:07 there are five layers with layers (1) and (2) both being Particle Waves, but I didn't see how or hear that the layer had been duplicated or created. Did I miss something?

I've learned so much from Video Copilot and I appreciate the tutorials so much, but I find that some of the time when I follow the tutorials they don't quite teach you how to really create the animation that is showed in the example. I've followed this one click for click and am left with something that looks like an amateur version of the example. It's good, but it lacks that professional finish of the example.

The tutorials are made to give you the basic concept of how they are made and to help you learn how each of the tools work. If all your're worried about is making a carbon copy of the original then just use the project file and change the logo.

This is so cool :) do you use a Mac? I use a PC and have the same program, but it has some crucial differences that have hindered my progress with these tutorials...

@Smithson, Right but you're not going to see carbon copy effects from this site in Andrew's professional work.

I've seen the same thing Tim W. has seen, websites and production companies copying what they've seen here in Kramer's tutorials and just changing one thing (like the color).

If you can tell an effect is from an Andrew Kramer tutorial, then it's more likely that he didn't have anything to do with it.
Smithson
11/22/2011
You do realize that Andrew designs for major motion pictures? If you see something from Hollywood that looks like Andrew's work, it could very well BE Andrew's work. He does a lot more than just Video Copilot.

Good tutorial,
Not as good as the others since this is the 1st I've seen where you leave out a few steps that can be quite annoying in figuring out later for the viewer. For one you duplicate the light comp with no mention of that. You do the same later to another. I caught it early but not mentioning steps leads to confusing people. It also makes a great tutorial, good. Anywho, thanks. It gave me some ideas for an intro before my scuba videos, since it has a cool underwater look.

At the very beginning where you create the text, your default colour for text is probably still on black or white. Change it to a brown/tan colour like Andrew started with. :)

Andrew Kramer it as come out reellly goooood
Tim
06/28/2011
I'm a little unclear on how Andrew switches out the logos in the end. He says that by switching out the type/logo the rest of the actions will apply automatically, but I must be too much of a noob to understand how to initiate this. Does anyone have a clearer understanding of this concept?

This tutorial rocks, it was absolutely priceless for creating ym own film logo. Thanks Mr. Kramer...you are a saint. Seriously.
George
08/03/2011
Remember, he pre-composed the text. So what he did, was went into the composition with the text, and added other logos/text, then toggled them on and off to change the output to the main comp.

Did you do the title treatment for Merlin on SyFy. The titles are 100% exactly like this tut.
frank

am a bit confused, cause am new to after effects, where do you get your source files from, or are they built in into after effect
John
12/13/2010
its a great tutorial!
learned much form it

but I have a small qeustion!
if you could or want, could you make an other tutorial with this text bursting into sand and blow to the side of the wall with the wind,

i already made the particals flown with the wind but the dust / break apart just keeps failing on me ;(

it would help me with a great intro cause you can make a hole (tekst) story like this sort a speak.

well anyways great tutorial you make young starters much more motivated!
