Hai Andrew, I am one of your greatest Fans From a village in South India & also I consider you as my Guru(Master), because I learned many things from you. Thanks for all those.
One thing in this tutorial I hope you know that, the internal neck colour of Tino's T-shirt is similar to that of the keying Screen,and that is also keyed up.
But excellent Tutorial. sorry for commenting so Late.
Thanks.

This tutorial is amazing, but it's not for people who've been using AAE for less than at least 2 months, too hard! =D

Andrew Kramer, amazing work.

Hi Andrew,
I'm sure you're flooded with comments about Element 3D right now, but I wanted to just take a moment to say thanks for making this tutorial - actually all of your tutorials. I was watching this last night, and was surprised to see how many things I learned from it that apply in so many situations. I watch all of your tutorials again and again and this one will be no exception. I just thought you should know how much I appreciate the time you spend teaching us these things. Thanks! Hope you and your growing family are doing well. Blessings,
Shawn

Con Force Air One ? What?


Surely Harrison stayed behind in his Millenium 747 Falcon Jumbo Jet type plane to save the President's wife, Leia ?

Or did I get that wrong?

Cool! Now one thing is true: you can't say "No adjustment layers were used in this videos".
Ryan
06/28/2012
I've actually just noticed something, in the tutorial you create the shack effect after Sam is out of frame however you create the shake effect in the original while they are both in frame, why? Also I did notice the one problem, the one thing that makes this fake. There is wayy to much leg room, there would need to be another seat before the next window in front of Sam. Ok, keep up the great work.

Considering the amount of time it took to put this TUTORIAL together the result is not too bad

I love how people correct Andrew when he's joking about films. I think someone with this much knowledge on film knows that Harrison Ford was in Air Force One, sarcasm really does fly over some people's heads.

Great Tutorial... HOWEVER...

You didnt put fire to the engine, that is actually the cover to the hydraulics.

And further more, Harrison Ford was not playing in Con Air, he was the president in AIR FORCE ONE

Andrew.
I would like to ask you when you have the time, just give us some tips to make the 3D model look more realistic.

I've made a plane but it doesn't look that realistic, I mean, the wing-sun reflection, what material did you used... How did you composite the sky (did you do it inside of after effects or in 3D max...) you know...

Just some lines of tips please (:

I would thank you so much.
Manu
08/01/2012
That's the same that I'm wondering, if you see the short film 405, the airplane has the same realistic reflections.
I'm thinking that have something to do with the surface characteristics (metal, gloss or not gloss) and how you make that material reflect (like a mirror map of the background) and also the lights (how you set and what types of lights were used in the creation of the scene)...

But I'm just guessing, I don't know not even a 5% of what Mr. Kramer knows....

So Please Andrew, can you give us some tips for general knowledge, I'm using Lightwave...! Thanks!!

I've just recently started using After effects but s there a way to only edit x or y positions when you are moving around an object with your mouse. It seems like Andrew perfectly drags it in the position he wants every time.

Hey! Great video work!

But as a professional aerospace engineer and hopefully Hollywood science consultant I have to say that you are confusing the engines with those canopy shaped things that are actually fairings. Only used to move the flaps back and forth. So, it is really hard to believe that they can explode when they are made of sheet aluminium and only full of gears and bike chains.

But again, great tutorial. Congratulations on fooling our minds!

Great tutorial- making 3d from 2d image. By the way, wherever you say engine parts, those are actually flap track fairings.

Hey Andrew, its Madus. thanks for another great tutorial. Wish you'd tell us a bit how you lighted that plane in max, so realistically cool! :)

to all : I tried using the native tracker of AE since I don't have the camera tracker yet,and it worked smoothly! Just turn on scale and position when using AE's built in tracker,that should do the job since the camera move is only forward.

I am a Chinese student, I'm learning AE now. My English is not good, and need to learn or post by using language translation tools , but I work hard. In China, the development of AE is not very good, I hope to be able to have development on our generation. Thanks for AK`s tutorial, thank you very much.

Best part was… when you started creating multiple adjustment layers, and duplicating layers - moving quickly etc.. It is in those times when all the real magic happens, and that is what you successfully showed people. It’s often more about an idea, as you said.
