Hey Andrew Kramer, How are you? I hope you are fine and healthy as always. I wanted to say 2 things.

First, I love your tutorials and I really do respect you and your work. Hast of to you. Love you man. You inspired me for the VFX.

Second, Please report this guy. He has released a showreel and calls some of your work his work. I really am angry on what he did. It is like an insult to a pioneer like you. Please, I request you to report him. I would feel great. Here is the link to his showreel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NOK3qrTHtI&feature;=youtu.be

Once again, thanks for your work and keep inspiring more people like me.

Could you please make a portal, where you can see where the person comes from, or tell me how you would do it.

I feel really silly responding to a two year old comment, but here goes. I looked at the video, and it seems like he used the same footage as Andrew Kramer, but followed the tutorial and did his own work. If you ignore the obvious use of the footage and look at the actual VFX it is (in my opinion anyway) clear to see that he made his own version of the portal that was taught above and used that for his reel. Some obvious markers of this include the girl's hair on fire in one shot, and the particles flying at the camera from the portal being far less subtle. I do however applaud you for finding this and trying to bring it to Mr. Kramer's attention as you obviously thought that his exact work was being stolen.

Downloaded the project file today and the smoke video plays fine but when i try to move it to the comp it says its damaged or unsupported. Anyone else having this problem, or does anyone know where to get another smoke video. Thanks

Great Tutorial. Question: I know this was done a while ago, so are you still using keylight or have you tried Primatte Keyer? If so, do you have a tut or helpful hints on using Primatte Keyer? Thanks again!
