On your hinge models with 2+ pivot points, how can you keep them all attached relative to each arms rotation? I've tried making a rig with Nulls but they retain their position information relative to the top parent. HELP!?

Please let me know if anyone ran into the same problem.
Andrew or anyone from VC team has can help me with this please let me know. I really appreciate it. Thanks.
Could it be that I should install it again?

Funny, maybe I forgot how to do it but all my old models folders ( Food pack, weapons, sports, ect) are no longer in the scene setup..?

Can someone pls refresh my memory on how to get it ALL back in this new version.

Also when I run it on CC ( not 2014 ) my preview window is all jacked
up...I guess no more running it on CC.

Dear VCP crew:
Im sure you have your hands full and are stressed out in an attempt to launch today - and I think I speak for everyone when I say we are all both excited and impatient to get our hands on your excellent work.

However, this would be a great time to give your customers an update of where you are:
It´s now Dec 3 everywhere but in the States and most of us on this side of the pond are either asleep or wondering if we should go to bed or stay up a few minutes or hours more - or if your launch will be postponed.

I bought v1.6 less than a week ago, because you were still selling it as new. Am I entitled to a free upgrade? If not, it would be shady for me to have spent $150 and then another $99 for the upgrade, when the full price of v2.0 costs $199. This is something you should have mentioned on your website or at least do like Apple and say "Out of Stock" so people won't buy an old version a week out from a new one being released.

    I know exactly the amount of work. I have been executive management for software development companies for over 20 years.

Is there a specific FacinRatio Shader (ie XRAY shader) shader? like hooking up transparency only to the faces of the model that face the camera?(I saw in video blending mode but that really isnt a facign ratio shader) Also what about a Boolean shader/opertation where one model would be used to "cut inside" another model?

Recently had to start using Cinema 4D (Because a friend had it and let me use his serial number) because E3D wasn't cutting it for my videos, specifically for all of the things that v2 has and v1 lacked, like SSS, Reflections, shadows, ect. I'm so glad this is coming out, no more 3 hour render times for 10 second scenes! Everyone needs this, instead of paying $1000 for C4D if you don't know someone who has it, you can get this for a fifth of the price, I'm nerding out right now, SO EXCITED!

    What's worse, impatient people or people that don't care at all? Personally, I'm very happy to see a line of copilot fans out there wanting to be the first to try out the new software. Andrew makes some great products which he is willing to share with us and he has a loyal customer base. The only thing that would be a shame here is if his work went unnoticed and no one wanted to buy his products.

    Keep up the great work Andrew!
5 years ago
As a producer making unscripted TV and doc-series (often with very low budgets) Element has completely changed the way we work and what's possible for us to get done on a deadline. I personally did all the vfx shots on the pilot for our recent recreation series using E3D (almost exclusively), and the VFX gentleman we hired for series used it on just about every single shot he did. I'm hoping we get picked up for season 3 just so we can pull off crazier shots with v2. Kudos to the whole VC team for changing the way an entire industry can work, and pushing the lines of what's possible.

I'm horny about this new element 3d version!!
Money on hand now it just need to be on store.
I want to say thank you for all Andrew Kramer, Andrew Kramer's brother and all the team that came with this new version and all this high quality stuff like always, thank you and i will be a pleasure to pay you guys buying that bundle because you guys deserve every cent of it.

I got a question for you tho Andrew Kramer, I know is a lot of people in here asking stuff so when you got a time if you can answer mine or just send me a email.

So i bought a new computer, with this configs:

32 GB RAM , GTX 780 Ti 3 GB, _i7-4770K_CPU_@_3.50GHz
Running Windows 8.1
I do have 12 tb HDD and 1 tb SSD.
I'm thinking of buying a Nvidia Titan Black or Titan Z.
Do you think with the GTX 780 Ti it will be good to work with the new element 3d?
or i should buy a Titan Black / Z?
Well thank you, have a great week and congratulations again on this amazing work.

We have just learned that Andrew Kramer was captured by an extra terrestrial band. They want to cancel the E3D V2 release because this plug-in generate serious cosmic distortion that could cause the destruction of the [3D] Universe.
We therefore recommend that you still use E3D V1.6 which, until now, to prevent you from making 12 hours render on 3D Max or C4D.
Thank you for your understanding.

It might be a few hours before it goes up guys. The thing is that people in California are just starting their day. It's just 9:30 AM there now. Lots goes into a launch like this and it better to be slow and careful as opposed to having issues and trying to working through while people are attempting to buy and download.

I will say that the eagerness displayed here is a testament to how awesome these plugins and packs are. VC is a rare thing indeed. I am having a tough time thinking of another company with such quality products, prices, and service across the board. Not too mention all the stuff they give away for free. VC is a stellar company in every way and I wish more people would follow their lead. Cheers guys! Can't wait to try out the new Element! :-)

Hello, Mr ANDREW KRAMER, I am too much fan your tutorial and your clear voice. I am from Bangladesh I am already use your Element 3D V.1.6, but it,s a crack version, because I have no enough money to buy this lisence version plugings, but I love to work and creat creative type of work in After Effect.
Can you please tell me when you realse free Element 3D V2 plugings just like our poor country people.

Is it possible to add to the shaders product, say if you developed your own shader in 3ds max, specular, illumination.... by importing these into the channels in element, will these shaders respond to the environment lighting changes as the pro shaders would?

Hello. We are a small commercial production company and were wondering if we have to purchase separate licenses for each of the packs to work across all of our computers? We would, of course, be purchasing separate E3Dv2 licenses for all machines, but wanted to know if the other packs would work across them with a single purchase? (We have a ton of machines, so cost at that point gets into the quadruple digits...)

Thanks so much for all you do for us! This is as big as the iPhone for us!

    You get 5 Activations for the software if it follows the same convention as previous distributions. You can email them if you have additional concerns. They are great at responding. Best, Sean
    Lord Edington
    5 years ago
    Yeah, but the five activation limit doesn't mean you are allowed to have five different instances on five different machines for five different people. It's always been my understanding that the license was for one user, but on up to two machines... so you can use it at work and at home, or on a desktop and a laptop for example.

    But I agree, definitely speak to support. If you have a ton of machines then I'm sure they can work something out.

Seriously some amazing programming. You and your teams ideas, from materials, to the new motion design pack, to that crazy bend and twist feature, truly shows how in touch you are to what we need to succeed. My vote goes to VC for "Product Of The Year"! Hands down! While so many HUGE Plug-in/Software companies fall short time and time again, VC continues to make us think.. What is possible? rather than what's the work-a-round? I can't wait to get this baby up and running.. Oh and there's no doubt all of our clients will think we're geniuses... Truly thanks to all of you and your continued hard hard work.

    Zack, The discount for people upgrading from V1 to V2 including back light, motion design and pro shaders is $250. I couldn't believe how good that price was when I saw it! No one could ask for a discount on that. It's amazing value. I'm still in shock!!!

Hey Andrew, do you think a system with GTX 970 and an i7 5960x with 32gb ram would run Element 3D v2 nearly as good as your system? I can find any info on the specs of your workstation online...

    In the video above, Andrew is using a GTX 780 Ti, which from what I can tell is only a tiny bit better than your GTX 970. Well, according to a couple of benchmark sites anyway.

    I don't think you'll have any problem running V2 with that setup.
