I love Andrew's tutorials. They are each insightful and extremely useful. I am continually learning more and more about After Effects thanks to Video Copilot. My company has purchased quite of few of the bundles as well. They are all magnificent.

As an added bonus, Andrew makes these quite amusing. The double orb joke at the end of the past 3 tutorials is hilarious. I've literally laughed out loud each and every time. I can't wait to continue learning.

Nice tutorial can i ask what pc specs you have as you seem to be able to preview very fast? when working with 3d items. my setup is 64gig ram - 6 cores 3.6ghz yet it runs very slow even at quarter view..

Hi! Really great tutorial you have here!! But~ Im stuck.. Once I make a new Camera I can only see my background and text. The Spin Things have disapeared, they are still on my timeline but not on stage... I put in the same Camera settings as the tutorial but it still doesnt work with any camera, Ive tried moving the layers around but it doesnt help :/ Can someone help me?

Whenever I add the CC Radial Blur on the adjustment layer my very bottom BG layer gets caught up too and I can see the transparency behind it, is that fine?

I have the same problem here. No matter what I do to the layers(hide them, use the little circle to solo them then apply the effect), it still apply the blur to all the layers including background. Anyone knows why? How do I only apply the effect to the layers I selected?

I had the exact same problem but I found a way round it, you tick the box to the left, next to the visibility, the circle one (sorry I dont know its proper name) to select just the layers you need, so not the background, and apply the blur then.

Hey Andrew! Big fan! I love the tutorials! I've learned so much from you! I'm having an issue with this tutorial using the camera when you move forward in z space. I set my keyframes just like you as far as I can tell, but for some reason when I try to ease in to the text, it moves passed the text and element layer in z space, then comes backwards in z space back to the text at my keyframe. I've done everything from trying different kinds of keyframe such and easy ease, easy in and easy out, customizing my graphics editor, and even restarted AE, but the problem wont go away. Any suggestions?
