Hi, when trying to set the first red background with the 'edit target' button it doesn't allow me to click edit target, has anyone else had this problem or know why this is? Annoyed at being stuck so early into the tutorial!!!
Thanks!

I frikking love these tutorials Andrew, you are a true legend.

...I also love when folk try to point out discrepancies yet are completely wrong. ie commenting that the driver's window isn't tinted; surely this is because windows are only tinted on one side?

I do believe that is what the kids refer to as a "FAIL"

01/26/2009
Hi Andrew my name is fadi and I was tracking your
videos for years you"r awesome
but there is kind a weird thing in this project I should tell you about it and I'm saying keep watching the mirror next to that magic glass you have made and you'll find you camera man(Dali)as you called hem appearing in it in some point when
Entering the window (i'm sorry about me English if there is any wrong) and good luck

Watching your tutorials has replaced television in my life. I do have a problem, though. I followed your instructions to open "mask shape", but I get "mask path" instead. There is a "shape" link to the right of that, but it opens a dialog box with different values for the bounding box. Please help me.

Thanks.

Oh my God, You have any Idea Mr.Andrew what you are providing.. I know you are getting these kind of good responses from all over the world. But I really have to say You are a unique genius, for providing these masterpiece techniques, the amazing secrets of Movie magic for a vast audience and more importantly for FREE. You are a CRAZY guy. God bless you man.

I think you are a 'MAHATMA' Mr.Andrew, THE 21ST CENTURY MAHATMA GANDHI.

Humble,polite,LEGEND...Keep your good works, pass them to others, send the message straight.
