I know what Andrew means. I was just kidding. It's hard to wait. I'm feeling like in that Time Freeze tutorial. The time seems to stand still.
12 years ago
thats true, it gets annoying doing it every time for every single tutorial, but its worth it in the end, cuz you know you have thousands of people who watch, learn and enjoy your tutorials and have a great time.

i will be making another tutorial soon myself, but my mics not working so ill have to hold out till my new computer gets back from repairs(hdd problems)
Andrew Kramer

no he means rendering as in rendering out of camtasia for the final flash tutorial files, i know because i make tutorials, usually it takes longer then the actual tutorial, so it must be a long tutorial, 30 minutes +
Some Guy

Your rendering speed in tutorials is much faster than this time. Your computer must be very slowly. That explains the usage of Paint.

Hola!!

Podría haber escrito este comentario en Inglés, pero creo que vale la pena hacerlo en castellano para mostrar el alcance de esta web y cuanto me ha ayudado a aprender! Soy Leo de Argentina y estoy fascinado de cuanto he aprendido con estos videotutoriales en poco tiempo. Me sacó completamente el miedo de usar After Effects ya que lo veía muy complicado de usarlo. Soy aficionado a la edicion y apenas con mis 18 años te agradezco mucho Andrew Kramer, ya que lo que estas haciendo es muy valioso. Seguí asi!!! y espero el proximo videotutorial about earth zoom.


See you!! Bye!

Haha, I laughed.

CAN'T WAIT.

Have you considered my tutorials Andrew?

Oh by the way..congrats!

1 Of your great products and 2 or your great tutorials were used in one of the greatest Machinema's ever made:

If you have heard of 'Half-Life 2', a mod to it Called Garry's Mod is a sandbox mod where you can muck around and build stuff.

Wow 3D in MSPaint, you must have the conoa Plugin for it. Didn't think it did such an amazing job in Paint, but you, Mr. Kramer, proved me wrong. Wow, looks like it is worth every penny. Impressive Globe you made there. I can't stop looking at it photo realism.

i can list em up:

- How to use track information from Boujou4 into AE probably!
- Some Trapcode Particular Tuts
- Some rotoscoping
- C4D to AE - Make 3D and video blend together! By that i mean, good lighting techniques in C4D
- Something on how to create this: http://www.ryan-w.com/ryan-w/clips/lightning_duel.mov (wich are made in AE, with some help from boujou)!

PLEASE LISTEN TO MY PRAYERS!

Andrew, your paint skills are a-m-a-z-i-n-g...this should be in the Louvre...looking forward to the Tutorial.

:D

as a reply to the person above. The best way I know of to use Google Earth for a zoom if you can;t get the Pro Module is to set up your path as a "place" and click it a few times to get the zoom in loaded fully in your buffer, zoom out as far as possible into "space", click record on the mini-DV cam set-up on a tripod, click on the places and rapidly hide your side bar slide the mouse cursor off screen concurrently. Do it a couple times for safety. Pull your footage into AE and color treat it as wanted including flouro greens and blues throw a grid with a glow filter on it and voila! a cool looking background computer screens for your next Enemy of the State wanna-be home film!
