Hi Andrew. Thank you for the plugin, it's pretty amazing. I have bought many of your products, because you stuff is great! I would even buy this one if it were for sale. I watched a tutorial on youtube on how to incorporate Element 3D with Saber and it had to do with "lining up the texts with the camera" and other things. There has to be an easier way to make this effect. Can you please tweak the saber plugin to make it easier to work with Element 3D? I'll buy it if so. Here's what I'm talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aA6lynCYMM

I love that even though you're working on some of the biggest movies that come out, your techniques and plug-ins have thoroughly saturated the professional market, you still talk to the guys making movies with their friends in these tutorials, the same way you did 10 years ago.

And the awesome stuff you give us. Especially that. If there's a "Really Swell Guys" Hall of Fame, I'll vote for you.

From watching VCP blossom from the early years to now, has been truly amazing.
Thank you again for the awesome work.

Andrew, what I would really love to see is a render settings tutorial. From concept, to final, to YouTube/Web. Renders that are done, don't look remotely the same nor rendered the same.

Possibly?

Amazing work as always, so many different angles, love the combo text with Element, looks sick! I like the way you can still goof on your old work; that shit was groundbreaking though, AE has changed so much since.

With the highest respect to Andrew and his team,

Just out of pure respect for all the people obviously waiting patiently - I believe an update is far overdue at this point (I believe the last update was almost 20hrs ago)

Communication is far better than silence and lets not forget, regardless of your market strategy, your customers are the backbone of your business....and may I remind everyone before you snap back at me - all legitimate users of this software (Element 3D) had to pay hard earned money to even be able use this free update.

Andrew is quite the showman. This company should be a model for how to market your products. Element is the only real significant product (it's great and priced intelligently), his stock vfx elements are good, but it's really how he get people (no talent dweebs like me) all excited about using them and doing cool stuff...

Andrew, Please go to sleep brother before you crash man.
It makes me incensed to see whining comments and cries of 'poor me' 'poor me' 'boohdy hoo hoo' and all the while you and your whole team are working your collective butts off to bring us all an awesome plug-in free of charge - it freaks me out!

Please people just chill man. They are working harder than you are right now...at your computer reading and writing comments...just like this one, and myself included. Have at least a modicum of understanding and a heap of respect for the effort being put into this and realize that VC could have charged for this plug-in and we all would have bought it.
Thanks to everyone over at VC for working to get this to us.

P.S. Sam you are rocking that 'sabe dude! My vote is for your to be in episode 8 as one of Yoda's long lost padawans.

It is a business model. Making free stuff and also making stuff you have to pay for. I am sure Andrew Kramer himself also his company never would do a mistake like "punishing" own customers. Even in the case some of this customers acting like be in a kindergarten. On the other side it could be very helpful to communitcate more realistic release dates.

It's probably done but Andrew is seeing all these annoying comments and decided to hold off a bit longer just to punish those who are unappreciative of getting something for free. The man is creating a superb plug-in...and I am sure his developers don't work for free, even though he is giving us the plug for free. You get it when you get it, how dat?

I swear I thought this plugin was coming out a week ago like it said on the first promo poster. But then I come here and find out, "well there's a trailer. Looks pretty badass. But you're still working hard to finish it and get the actual plugin out." So just when I thought I missed and the launch and avoided the painful slow tick of patiently waiting for its arrival, I see I am firmly stuck in the middle of it like everyone else. I've got a project right now that is in dire need of what I hope this plugin can do. So I guess I'll be reloading the page every hour as well. lol But it is sooooo worth it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this plugin FREE.

Although it was an app, this is a plugin... I mean u really think that u r gonna be able to get it done by then, but when you are into the things, then u see hw much more is left... U continously work all day+night and still find tht it could get better if i add x hours of more work!! And thts wt u all r failing to understand,.. Those x more hours tht i put into it might just save u some seconds bt it makes a big difference in my opinion!!

This is not to A.K. and VCP but to the community. Anyone with a negative comment should be ashamed of themselves. Apparently, none of you have either advanced far enough in your careers to have developed a plugin or have enough technical understanding to appreciate what goes into development. Andrew, fortunately enough for you is STILL one of us. Correction, he's better than us and I mean that in the fact that he learns something new and SHARES it. Too many in this community takes from VCP and does not give back and has the audacity to be angry that an amazing piece of tech is being shared for free because it's not released on time? I purchased just about everything here. I just bought the heat distortion plugin last night as I was in a time crunch to meet a deadline and I wanted the best results in the least amount of time (I usually do these kind of FX manually).
My point being I was grateful enough to have this as a resource and it saved me time. BE GRATEFUL. Thank you VCP and Andrew Kramer. You have my complete support and I have been been following guys like Andrew and Aaron Rabinowitz since the Creative Cow days in 2005 or so. Thank you for what you do.
VCP community, if you cannot progress in your learning without the likes of VCP, the least you can do is be grateful that they care enough to do what they do. As it will most likely be YOU that takes a tutorial, follows it exactly, and puts it in their "show reel", the very LEAST that you can do is be thankful that these guys are giving you "some kind" of life. Take your time VCP. You have NEVER disappointed me.
P.S. My sites getting an overhaul and I will be putting some tutorials up in the next few months (so I TOTALLY get why these delays happen) and I hope to share these with the VCP community.
Again, THANK YOU Andrew Kramer (including Mrs.Kramer for her support) and the whole VCP staff (Big Shout out to Bryan B in support, he's a beast!)

    Donnell

    Sammy you need to understand that Andrew is as excited to release this plug in as we are to get it. Sometimes in that excitement we can't wait to share what we're doing with others. Andrew feel to me like the guy thats just like us..he loves what he's doing, and it shows, if thats no way to run a business then he should charge us for the plug in don't you think? So its safe to say Andrew doesn't treat us like he's running a business, it feel more like a good friend sharing with us his hard work by giving us free plugins and making tutorials for us on how to use them.

But you feel he is under-performing?

    You all fail to see my point (except Sammy). Video Copilot is a business. Period. The announcement of release dates and consistent failure to meet those dates is unprofessional. It is old. I'm not being negative. I am stating facts. This doesn't make me less of any type of human being. I don't "need" this plug in and it isn't about this plug in or any other piece of VC product. That being said, I do purchase almost all of VC's products and use them. Fanboys will be fanboys.

    Shawn, if you don't "need" this plug in, why bother to comment. So you could be creating instead of trolling? How many tutorials have you created (that didn't rip off vcp anyway)? I would love to see your body of work that displayed anything but ripped off tutorials for all the complaints. AND you complain about a free plugin? Business or not, they are GIVING THIS TO US. I don't care if it was delayed a year. It's free. Be grateful. I bet if they charged $200 for the plugin and it was released on time you would complain about the price. Show some gratitude first, then get a life.

    Nothing wrong with teasing a FREE plugin being developed. He's excited, but also letting the VC community know that he hasn't 'abandoned' them. So what if it's taking longer than expected. It's free. You'll get it when it's ready. Please shut your ungracious pie hole.

Everyone, who think Andrew deserves an award for his efforts for this free(!) plugin, could buy some other products from him. For example, pretty cheap Heat Distortion plug-in.
Btw, Mr. Kramer, maybe it's good idea to start VC page on Patreon? I would love to support your tutorials and other free stuff here.

    I see your point but still disagree. I don't think recognition should go only through money. I'm an 18 yrs old student, I'm broke, and I cannot really afford to spend money on plug-ins. I'd rather spend it on, you know, food and stuff ;)
    I'm assuming you are already making a decent living, and I do think that it is a GREAT thing that you can support him. In fact, if it was not for you guys who financially support him, I could not enjoy the free stuff myself. However, I still think that in a way, my non-financial support is worth as much as your financial one, simply because that's all I can give him for now :)

You are perfectionists, I kind of know what you are going through. I video tape weddings on the side and I torment over every nuance. Things that the couple would never even notice I still need to fix because I notice them. Then when I finally have it all complete, I see I spelled something wrong even though I looked at it 10 times. UGH! Take your time Andrew and team you are perfectionists which is why so many flock to your site and products.

Your last update in the comments was from just after 4 AM your time. Who does that? Who goes from working on a little film called Star Wars to staying up all night to give fans a free plugin? You're one of a kind, Andrew, and we all appreciate what you do for the visual effects community!!

This is gone beyond silly now. Go to bed andrew. You have done enough. Get it in the morning.

As for the forum here. You all waited this long what a bit more. Is it worth a family man killing himself over herethe sake of 1 more day? Its obvious Andrews trying his damnest. Give him a break.

It's gonna be worth it! There are so many little tips on how to get the FX right. You guys have been awesomely patient and I wouldn't be dragging this out if it wasn't extremely important.

It's not ideal to be running behind like this. It sucks. If you guys could see how much has improved in these 10 extra days... the quality and control is night and day.

Now, We've come too far now!!!

Most of the negative comments here are obviously coming from people that have no clue whatsoever how the world of production (pre/post production) works.
Most of us (myself included - why I’m still up at 4am on a Saturday morning) working in this realm can completely understand the way time ticks by as we painstakingly work at getting everything delivered 'just right' for our clients. Ultimately its our own reputations and therefore livelihood at stake each time we hand over a piece of work only to be scrutinized by the masses.
Give this guy a break! in a day or two, when you're all experimenting with this 'gift' you'll all have forgotten about this huge effort Andrew and his team are making......it's sadly all part of this generations need and demand for instant gratification. Just please relax and let this guy do his job.......nuff said!!..... Cheers! Andrew to you and your team, I for one am ready whenever you are.

Take some rest Andrew. Although we did miss you for about 11 months or so but we do understand you have been busy. Now that you are providing this plugin for free. Its a very generous gift from you. Of course we have waited this long to see some new tutorials and great jokes we can wait for a day more.

I am also impatient, waiting for the result, but this is due to the greatness of this plugin and especially to be free, not to have spent the day 2016/03/04 .... we respect his time and wait .... not to post aggressive messages, after all the guy is with us .....

The guy has 4 kids and a wife! I'm sure 3 out of 4 kids wake up during late hours of the night to wonder around the house "daddy I need a cup of water, daddy what are you doing, daddy can I have a snack, daddy can we play some video games?" This guy has a family! His wife can't do everything, marriage is a team.

That being said, AK is not the only person working on this plugin people.. I'm sure he has a team of people doing different things, its called production! Give it some time, he promised that he will not rest until its released. I'm sure he wants it released and go to sleep knowing there wont be any issues for Matt to deal with in all of your emails.
