Usually a simple opacity fade leaves graphics looking washed out, but by color correcting the fade out, you can add color and contrast to the fade! I […]

Man... you are a king!!!!!

With the help of some of your tutorials.. I'm now making TV Commercials & Sales presentations for exsisting clients I have only ever produced Sound & Radio jobs for .. Not bad for a beginner of 30 days.

I never dreamed of accomplishing what i have in 30 days, and the clients are happy... i set my goal of 12 months to get up to scratch... needless to say, Im 11 months ahead.. and extatic!!

Cant believe you do all this for everyone.. FOR FREE!!

oOo. I would definatley get in on a forum. That would be very very smart. About the green screen, I plan on getting a nice big sheet of wood, and I got some paint to paint on it.

# Andrew Kramer Says: That was a post dated check for 2097 ; )

Andrew, if you one day failed in VFX, I am sure you could success with a one man show, or a two man show with Sam :)

Jacob - Well noted. Never thought about the fabric creasing, though, i'm not sure that i'll always have the room for something as permanent as a board...

thanks for the tip!

R.E:"Dude, you need to show us how to blow up the earth after this one."

There is actually already a tutorial on how to blow up the earth in 3ds maxonline somewhere. Could be very cool with the earth zoom.

Judd - My experience with green screen fabric, it either needs to be very elasticy (so as it wont wrinkle if hung). I bought some cheap green material and it creases like you wouldn't belive. Some MDF or cheap wood with a matte green finish would probably be better. Just head over to you hardware store and get their most lurid green paint with a matte finish. As long as you can store the board that you paint, your all set!

Hey there's enough people to get some good input on here...

I'm going to buy a green screen tomorrow...probably just some bright green fabric. Is there a better (cheap) way to go? And Andrew, have you ever considered making a forum on here? This is a really great site for us all to learn and share different things.

Thanks all.

so it is time for Ae cs3 with other prog. integration and real world Action.

Serious Fx v.02 is coming soon .. NO No, I'm just kidding .

I don't think that you would see the earth spinning... Yeah the earth spins really super fast...

but when something is launched in to outer space it continues to spin with the earth...

When's this gonna come? I need to get one of those drinking birds for my F5 button! :P

Nah, I liked the other earth better. You know that one you made in MS Paint, much better!
Seriously I'm really looking forward to it! I have one of these bird toys that goes up and down drinking, you know, it is picking on my F5 button:D

Hi Guys,
It is funny you should make a tutorial about this. I have all ready took yous a step further by having a lens flare come shineing around the Earth. I also created a moon and and have it fly by the camera. I have only been useing AE for about three months but am already fairly good at it because of you tutorials. Belive me, I would be nowere without you. THANKA YOU!!

To add to that, since you are into space and you've done the Space zoom and now are doing an earth. I've been wanting to put a live action version of this together. I know it would be possible, but I'm sure you could make it much easier.

hello Mr. Beeman!

This already looks amazing. I'm sure it will be another fun tutorial.
Maybe Earth should slightly be spinning for more realistic feel. Or not, I don't know, but still looking forward for this one!

NICE, Hey andrew I have some earth textures for any modelling program. I have a day one and a night one where you can see lights. All you have to do is aplly it to a texture and add it. Its really easy. The cool thing is that you can go into photoshop and make it look like doomsday too. Just brush it up you know. Do you want them?
