Decepticons... really? Dementors my friend. They are called dementors...
Bryan Johnson

He's obviously joking you nerd. Did you hear him say right after it's kind of a "demented character." He's messing around.

I really love your tutorials BUT i'm pretty frustrated with this one. I'm using CS5 and I CANNOT find where the "Options-Rendering-Force Motionblur" is. I know it's somewhere in the program in a different area, just dont know where. I even tried doing what one of the previous comments on here suggested. I don't know what they where talking about.....where is this "Energy Layer" they speak of???Lol PLEASE HELP!!!
Shon T
09/24/2013
I believe you're referring to the 'Options' in CC Particle World? The 'Options' panel has been removed in the latest version. You can just toggle Motion Blur on your comp track instead.

@VFX Help I also have the same probelm but try this !
(I use MAC, so I don´t know if it´s the same in PC)
- if you look at your timeline, and a alittle bit above it on left side. You´ll find the symbol of mothion blur ! So click on it!
-then in the energy layer, just enable the motion blur on it !

Done !

wtf, why do I have to hear Decepticons over and over just to move back a few seconds since you go 1000 MPH. You used to be able to just skip back a few... BOOO!

Also unable to skip through (or back) on this video, it restarts from the beginning whenever I do. Doh! This is a great tutorial though. I'm running Firefox 12.0.

It sucks that you cant scrub through this video, every time I try it just restarts the video. Some one mentioned that downloading the tut would help but it doesn't for me because when I go to extract the zipped folder it tells me that the folder is invalid and will not let me go any further. Can anyone help with this problem?
Either way I will make it work because I love these tutorials, just finished the shatterize one and it turned out really cool, I can't wait to pair it with this energy wipe!

Hey so in cs5 my cc particle effect background is white...makes it really hard to see the particles...anyone know how to change this?...Also cant find the options tab...how do i turn on motion blur??
Barney
07/28/2011
As I don't have CS5 (still using 32 bit Windows), the only thing I can suggest is putting a black solid behind it, and setting the particle effect layer to screen, so the white background disappears and you can use the solid as a background.
Lee Martin
06/22/2011
I can't skip through or fast forward/rewind? That really sucks because if I miss something I have to watch the WHOLE MOVIE just to catch up.

when i went to simulation,it did n't contain cc particle world(i have CS 4,does that matter)
Ryan
06/15/2011
I have the same problem, does the trial version have CC particle world? or is it exclusive to the authentication code version...?
Nick Mercer
05/25/2011
That's odd. It should be in CS4. Try typing in CC Particle World in the effects & presets tab just to check.

an awsome pointer! if you use this method you can use it to create veins that grow on people by keyframing the velocity to 0 at the point you want and then motiontrack it to your actor! =) looks awsome and really grosse =P

Something is wrong with the player. I can skip to what ever part i want or go back to what ever part i want simply by clicking on it in that time line thing on the bottom of the video copilot player in any tutorial except for that one. Whenever I click any where on that time line thing the video just starts from the beginning.

Spades
09/27/2010
First of all, I salute you Mr. Kramer. Feels like I learned AE in just 1 day :D...which I did...

And to all who are STILL complainging about the force motion blur (inculding me for about 10 minutes until I actually looked -_-)

1. Turn on motion blur on your layers.
2. Create an Adjustment Layer (Layer>New>Adjustment Layer)
3. Put it over the layers you want.
5. Effect>Time>CC Motion Blur
4. PLAY WITH THE DAMN SAMPLING AND STOP COMPLAING.

Thank you for your time.

Hello, Andrew!

First of all... LOVE your tutorials. You are amazingly talented and to be putting these tutorials up for free is exceptionally generous of you.

I have a question regarding the "Soul Removal" tutorial. I'm using CS5 and the "CC Particle World" layout is a little different. I can't find the "Option" button in order to enable the "Rendering: Motion Blur" and it's kind of essential for this technique to work.

Can you tell me where I can find it?

Thanks again!
