hi, I would need some help. Looking for an input on how to make some water particles. Like in the ocean planktons and stuff. (Im guessing dust and stuff like that would also be cool) Please, reply if you have a tutorial or a project...

Hey I feel like I'm just missing something obvious, but I can't get my text to animate to the blur like you do around 3:20. I repeated it about a hundred times, but my text doesn't react to the blur effect. I have no clue why. Any suggestions?

Yo something I would really like to know - I'm trying to make an intro / logo for a youtube channel which will be my team in LoL and I wanted to know if it was possible to have a starnengly formed iceblock that has that effect, then have fire / fire text INSIDE the iceblock?

Great tutorial. Built on this one by using all ice and glass textures from the pro shaders (masked, tiled, displaced and distributed in z space) to make a pretty convincing pond ice. Built on Laurence Grayson's "Sands of Time" tutorial with some additional layers and effects to make some pretty decent snow. Then smashed the two of them together.

Keep up the good editing!

Dude, I just wanted to say that I love you before I start testing out this tutorial. You have a lovely, soft and comforting voice which will come in handy when I get closer to the end of this video. This is such an amazing effect and you're just the best for charing you're knowledge!

I'm just a rocky when it comes to editing, but for what it's worth, I just wanted to let you know you're a truly great teacher!


Friedly greatings all the way from Sweden!

What did Andrew do between 9.23 and 9.25 to change the image so dramatically? I was following everything up until that point and was getting the same results but at 9.25 the diffused background suddenly changed colour and appeared flatter.

WOW! crazy effects you are a god! I was wondering during the tutorial how you would make the text crack through the ice, and have the ice exploded all over. Like maybe have some of the text showing and parts of is actually sicking in the ice.

Joe Lazy
06/26/2013
You can manually move it by using the "pan behind" tool to the right of the camera tool, or you can select the layer and press "a" on your keyboard and move the anchor point to where you want it

Hi Andrew,

Thank you for the excellent tutorial!

I ran into one problem. When I try to use the DOF, the text does not soften properly and text pixelates strongly. When I take off the effects from the text layer, DOF works as it should. Can you help with this? How did you do DOF in your video?
