Your tutorials are great dude, but I have a problem when I try this myself. Every time I start to rotate a solid, the solid always distorts and stretches out wildly. Any help is appreciated because this is frustrating.

your tutorials are great dude. I tried this out myself, but for some reason, every time I start rotating a solid, it always distorts and stretches out wildly. I'd definitely appreciate any help because this is really frustrating.

When you add the 3D layer at 3:26... I dont have a 3D layer option... And i see you don't either, but then you like drag down or something. You must be holding a key.. What key?

Dustin
11/28/2012
I had the same problem dude! its still ALT click but you have to do it on the little stopwatch icon next to the words "Z Rotation" Clicking on the words themselves does nothing
Antoine

Not only do you give clear instructions, you also make it fun to discover that all, instead of just giving information and techniques...
Thanks!

Outstanding video tutorial . I have never before seen a presentation that has the fluidity , the knowledge , the clear execution and the awesome visuals.

I really would like to know how you made the video tutorial itself . I do not think that After Effects can record the Screen so it must to have been Camtasia or other similar application. Can you tell us about it please. I for sure will appreciate it and I am sure that a lot of people will too. Thanks.

Hi Andrew. This is an awsome tutorial. Though when I tried it something really weird happened. I double-click on the elipse tool and indeed it creates a perfect circle. After that I use the masking techniques just as you instruct. After making the solid 3D if I try to rotate it in Z-space as you indicate ... it gets oval like an egg! For no apparent reason. From a perfect circle to an egg shape. What's my problem really!? :/
Bryce
01/06/2013
Hey,this happened to me, haha its easy to fix first you click than hold shift, it makes it to perfect the ratio to make the circle exact. p.s dont move your mouse when done clicking the button it will accenditilly reset

Is there a way to make the number only count up?
Alexis
07/16/2012
Create a new object.
Apply a "slider" effect on it.
Alt+click on the slider's stopwatch and type this expression:
Math.floor(time*x)

replace x by a value which corresponds to the speed you want ;)

Then, go back to your text and go on to the source text parameter. Alt+click on the stopwatch. Then, use the pick whip and drag it on the slider.

Hope that helps :)

It you had a bar that when up and down connected to the number represented by the shield, it would look even better.

Hi,
I've a problem to open your file after effect "HUD download". When I try, it opens a window saying : "The following layer dependencies are missing : Text Layer: Font family: 'Helvetica', Font style 'Regular'.
I don't know if your file is damaged or if it's coming from my computer.
However, you do a very nice work ! Keep on going !
Ben
11/10/2011
You probably don't have the fon't "Helvetica."
Some guy
09/07/2011
This is because your computer does not have the font (texttype) helvetica. Just change the font and you'll be alright. No damaged file :)

I like the tutorials on this site but what absolutely pisses me off is when people do stuff in the videos without saying what they just did.

For example:

At 3:25 you hit a hotkey and I have no idea what just happened, I spend almost 1.5 hours googling for what i'm supposed to do and i'm just gonna quit for today. Most of the tutorials on here are awesome but bumping in issues like these really sucks and its avoidable, please take note..:(

I think you're newbie. But this site is primarily for int-adv level artists. Don't blame me or andrew, he just posted some great vid tuts for absolutely beginners, i think you need this. Just open the homepage & find "10 free tutorials for beginners" with a nice 3d rounded star logo. just get 'em & learn AE.

hopefully this will help you.
Bill
07/25/2011
Eddie, all he did was change modes at the bottom of the screen, which he did by pressing F4 I believe. Or you can just click on the "Toggle Switches/Modes" button.

Hope that helps, calm down though.
