  2. Nice stuff nick.
    I’m glad i started watching your Vblog when i did. I feel its going to be a good daily dose.

    What i’m looking forward too, even more then the tutorials, is the little 5 sec projects. This as a feature on your blogs will really bring new and old motion designers posting and contributing together.

    Many thanks for giving your time,

  3. You sir, are God.

    I really didn’t know it was so easy, I’m pretty excited to start playing around with it.

    Quick question: what software would you recommend to model and/or animate in 3D?

    Keep the AE tutorials coming! Love em!

  4. Although I know the basics, I watch because you never know what you may throw in for good measure. Plus, we have to always remember the basics in order to do the complex. I would like to know how you did the final piece of your Layer Tennis volley…that was cool to the hilt! DK rules my friend.

  9. more C4D tuts! I think they’re fantastic. Also, I love the walkthroughs. Design tutorials are genius because it’s lacking in most colleges and other website tuts. Keep encourage people to build their eye for design.

    I like your tutorials for after effects and I wanted to ask if you could make a tutorial on how to make shadow on an object in 3D without using a light, if its possible to do that.

    Reply
    • You do need a light, but switch the light to “Shadow Caster” and that will only make a shadow with no additional light. That might be what you need.

  15. Hai!

    Maybe off topic, but I’m bumping into this next issue:

    Made a composition (intro) for video’s in C4D r13. Nice ‘nd clean blurry moving mesh with some neat textures.
    Imported into AE and added blur, lights etc.

    Now exporting to Premiere Pro, It gives the error “AE blur missing” and “AE flares missing”.

    Can’t find a way to export it from AE to Pr in a proper way.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.
    Bye!
