The Kramer Blog

The time has come for me to communicate with you guys! However, this will likely serve as a place for me to vent and tell you what’s on my mind. Who knows what might come out.

Dear Andrew

In the tutorials about the lightsaber effect you mention that to get your light saber effect you download it from “the site”
which site is that and where abouts do you find it?

Hey Andrew,
How about doing a tutorial on The famous Star wars
Text crawl with a planet or death star camera zoom in one shot.I know a lot of people out there including my self are wanting to know how its done.

So if you could please be so kind and make a full tutorial from start to finish please it would be of great help.
Thank you!

Thanks

i just have to say that i sit down to watch and learn from your great How To vids for after effects.BUT not only do i learn i laugh alot. a funny guy. An example would be when you said somthing about "stop trying those dating websites that always reject you " and then you say "hold on let me just move this out of the way" and there on the screen is a dating website. thats just one example thanx for the laughs and the sharing of your skills in AE

Men, this site Rocks!!!
Andrew, I think I have read each of your tutorials 500 times and I just can't wait for this music video I am working on (after learning the light streak tut.) You are definitely awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, I was viewing the new 3d project tutorial and you don't just understand how much I have been waiting, no dieing for such thingy from you. Is it possible for you to do like a tutorial on how to do different camera movements from probably one street to the other then entering an apartment window like Rob Thomas music video "Little Wonders" http://youtube.com/watch?v=9IVzYLthJow I know pictures will be a lil intense so anything to make the point will be just great!. By the way Andrew, yeah, she's always right!.

Ok Mr. Kramer, I just bought Sound FX. Spent the money I had saved up towards the CS3 After Effects upgrade. So make sure you still do some 7.0 tutorials. hmmm where is my BBQ sauce?

I have a fantastic idea about what you could do Andrew. Why not set up a part on your web page where you can put little clips of what people have created from your products and ideas. It would be cool to show people what you can do with it along side yourself with your tutorials. I thought it would be a neat idea to see what could be created out of all the products with some ideas from everyone. Just sharing, See ya!

Not sure where to request this but I was hoping you could do a tutorial on converting video to cartoon in AE like the movie "A Scanner Darkly" I dont know if it is even possible to do in AE only. I know there was a tutorial on Creative Cow but you had to use Illustrator and I have a version that is too old to do it with.

Dear Andrew, Hey I loved reading all the responses. It's a little foreign to me. (I'm not the computor master) so I didn't understand everything but it seems you all do and that's all that matters. I'm so proud of you and the hard work you put into everything. I know that you'll keep producing great stuff. Love Mom.
