I've followed several of your tutorials and this is one of my favorites. I animated the noise inside the orb (the "energy") using the expressions I've learned as well from your tutorials. Really easy to follow and very informative. Thank you so much! (And I got the typing joke.) :)

Anyone else having a problem with the "cc sphere" not being a sphere but an egg shape? it only happened the time used it on the reflection. The first initial "cc sphere" on the smudge background worked fine. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!! This is so cool but nothing seems to be working i read somewhere it might be the pixel aspect ratio compensation switch, but that didn't work either :/

i supose i have. first of all you have to check if your compositions are 4:3 or 16:9. If you want to use 4:3 then all your comps should be 4:3 or if you want 16:9 all should be 16:9

(you check your comps resolution by right clicking your composition>composition settings)

If it still is an "egg shape" you should toggle your pixel aspic ratio

(in the basic AE layout its located just under your preview tabs/above the time line, next to where you can select your point of view)
