I’m extremely excited to introduce The Pixel Lab “Video Production Pack” in Videocopilot Element 3D format! I’ve collaborated on this project with my buddy Remco and David Biederbeck. We’ve created a great pack with 16 video production themed models that are textured and prepped to be used in Videocopilot Element 3D! I really hope this pack will be helpful to you!
Please note: we have excluded the 4 interior scenes from this pack. Because of the high poly count they were not able to be prepared in Element 3D. Because of this, the Element version is only $40 instead of $50.

16 Video Production Themed Models for only $40
Hey guys, just wanted to give you an exciting update: we are working hard to convert the Pixel Lab model packs into Videocopilot Element 3D ready packs. These will be for sale as a separate product, and we will also have a discount if you purchase a combo pack with both the .c4d and Element versions.
My good friend David Biederbeck of beckmotion.com has been helping me out and is doing an awesome job. The process has been quite a bit trickier than we thought, but it’s finally coming together. The first pack should be ready in the next few days!
The Element 3D Pack will be a .zip you can simply put in your videocopilot folder and then you can access all of the models directly in After Effects. The models will be textured and ready to go, as well as pre-rigged to the best of our abilities, so you can do some minimal animation on the models in After Effects. Hopefully these will be very useful to you!
In the meantime, here’s the Espresso Machine freebie that we converted into Element format so you can check it out. http://bit.ly/R2dtEY
We’ll be announcing the launch soon. There will be a discount code given to my e-mail newsletter, so sign up for that soon if you’re not on it already.
Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks guys!
In this Cinema 4D and After Effects tutorial for beginners I’ll show you a couple very quick tips for dealing with cameras. Hopefully these will point you in the right direction if you’re just starting out with animation.

David over at beckmotion.com sent me a link to a tutorial he created the other day, and I thought it was incredibly useful and well done. He gave me permission to share it with you guys. If you’re just getting used to Element, and are having problems bringing my 3D models into it, this tutorial will help clarify some workflow issues you need to be aware of. Thanks David for a very helpful tutorial!
This is an interesting day for me! Almost exactly one year ago I wrote an article for Fuel Your Motionography about the first images from the plugin Element by Videocopilot. My article boasted some pretty big claims about the future of 3D in After Effects based on this plugin. Today is judgement day! Today we find out if my predictions came true or not.
From the pre-release videos, it looks like this plugin is absolutely visionary and revolutionary. Now, the only thing that remains is to get this plugin, put it through it’s paces, and find out how much of a game changer this really is. I’m pumped up! I’m excited to hear your thoughts on it as well. Please let me know in the comments your thoughts and your experiences and you start playing with it. As I wrote in the conclusion of my article last year: “This is an excited time in our industry. It certainly can be overwhelming to keep up with all the changes, but at the end of the day, if you look back and think about all the things you used to say to yourself: “Man, I wish we could do this,” and “Man, this feature would be so nice right now!” Well, those things are all happening! And I for one, am pumped up to be in this industry as we move forward towards the goal of having more freedom to create while spending less time fighting software into submission.” I hope this is a step in that direction.

In this C4D and After Effects Tutorial I’ll show you a very quick and easy way to set up your depth passes correctly so you can do your DOF in After Effects. This workflow will make it much easier, faster and more flexible to work with depth of field. I’ll show you two ways to use your depth pass, the free Camera Lens Blur and a plugin called Frischluft Lenscare.
Check out the plugin here for the best prices: bit.ly/MzicrM

In this tutorial I’ll show you how to use Trapcode Echospace. This plugin is basically the equivalent of the Cloner Object, a Shader effector and a Random Effector all in one for After Effects! If you haven’t used it before, it will revolutionize the way you think about working in After Effects. And if you create infographics, this plugin is a must have. You can buy it here: bit.ly/IPiigT or buy the Trapcode Suite for a big discount here: bit.ly/IHj3HP
In this Cinema 4D and After Effects tutorial I’ll show you how to use Revision Effect’s Re:Map to replace a C4D UV Multipass with a 2D image in After Effects. This is such a powerful technique and I’m really excited about it!
