Hi there,
I'm following this tutorial cause i need to reproduce the material u built at min. 5:22.
I use AF CC2015 so something's little different but that's no the problem... I noticed that when u change the value of Intensity Reflection (in my case there's no the voice Reflection but Refraction) at min. 4:54 the preview in the Scene materials windows changes... not in my preview! So i'm not able to reproduce the material of the example in the tutorial.... i can't understand why

Hi guys, i'm having problems with inserting my pro shaders into element. I installed them in the right map on my computer but they don't show up in element. Does someone recognize this problem and can help me?

Awesome tutorial.

Hey Andrew, great tutorial again! I've got an idea, you should put the tutorial video on torrent site instead of letting people download it from your server, usually it takes loooog time to finish download!

Can you help me? Every time I try to do the auto trace it keeps on making a copy of and element will not extrude the original or the copy!

You only have to do auto trace once. If you need to go back and tweak your extruded model, then just click on the solid that you made and in the effects (FX) that you created, then click on the "Scene" to get back to your extruded model.

Just checking.

At 7:50, I saw you change the direction of the light (in E3D).
How can I do like that with the mouse? I mean I can only rotate the model, not the light.
