Video Copilot Show Returns!

The Video Copilot Show is back! What is the Video Copilot show? And where did it go? Well, we used to do this thing where we filmed stuff we made…

Starting next week we will be taking you behind the scenes as we try to pull another intense visual effects shot!  Our goal was to try and do something more challenging and show examples of what issues may come up when shooting for visual effects and how to solve them!  Or at least hide them enough so nobody notices.

Visual Effects are evolving and we want keep pushing the complexity of our tutorials. That is why we’ll be covering things like matte painting, 3D set extensions, and crazy stuff like compositing translucent surfaces… I’ll explain later!

The upcoming episode is one of the most complex ones we’ve done and I imagine in the future we will probably get lazy and just film some dust flying around

Right now, I’m splitting my time between finishing our short film Intercept (Circa 2015) and some killer software development and design projects. The new Video Copilot show will hopefully be a vehicle to focus on specific visual effects and creating them from start to finish!

NOTE: Plug-in Installers Updated for After Effects 15.3
Some of you may know that you can copy the “Video Copilot” Plug-in folder over to the new After Effects plug-in folder but we also updated the installers as well. You can log-in to get the latest installers for Element 3D V2, Optical Flares and Heat Distortion. Or download the new Saber installer here!

 

I’ve also been experimenting with Element 3D almost everyday… Looking forward to showing you what we’ve been working on after a few of these projects drop!

Reloading. #element3d & Motion Design 2 with Animation engine!

Adopt me.
On a serious note... I want to make a short film involving an AC-130 providing cover fire. What is the best way to incorporate your actual location in the aerial footage? A drone perhaps? And more pressingly how do you fake a real thermal view?

    The worst part is, you can literally rip off the model from the game for FREE.

    But morphings for talk feature,complete polygons and T-Pose is a problem,so if a character is wearing clothes then you will never get the polys from behind the clothes if you were to change clothes in max.

    I made another one here:http://www.turbosquid.com/3d-models/3d-model-justin-beiber-morphs/1052910

    and will be making more cuz material with quality is the demand in market

Will 3D matchmoving be one of the topics in the upcoming shows? I'd love a detailed look at how to shoot an actor in cockpit set piece and then track & composite that footage with a 3D model of some sort of aircraft or spaceship.
