I created a new logo bumper for Whale of a Tale Productions in 4K

For quite some time I have been wanting a new Whale of a Tale Productions logo, and I have need for one in 4K as I have been posting some of my DJI Osmo Test Footage on YouTube.

I had recently upgraded a really old logo that had been NTSC to 4K, but wasn't too impressed with the results, so I decided to create a new one that more closely resembled my new Business card.



So I went to trusty After Effects CC 2017 14.2, as well as Element 3D and Red Giant Tsunami and created the following logo bumper for Whale of a Tale Productions.



Someday I will tackle one in full 3D where the logo can interact with the water, but not right now. For now I am pretty happy with this one.

Video Copilot releases Element 3D V2

After a slight delay (they seemed to have some issues releasing yesterday) Video Copilot has released Element 3D V2 with shadows, 3D Noise and Deform, Bend and Twist, and a whole slew of new features for $199.95 with a $99.95 upgrade price.

Here is a video with more of the new features:



They also upgraded Pro Shaders to 2K graphics for $99.95, and upgraded Backlight with 8K HDRi Environment and Light Maps for $99.95. And Motion Design 2 High Tech and Industrial 3D Models also for $99.95 or you can buy the full Motion Design for $349.95 or $249.95 upgrade.

Element 3D is a fast and powerful 3D program for use within after effects and is really a must have plug in, so I am excited to see what the new features can do.

Update on VideoCopilot Software and Adobe Creative Cloud CC 2014. Looking over at the Forums, it seems that everything except Element 3D is working with Creative Cloud 2014. And according to Andrew Kramer's Twitter Feed, they are working on it.

With Red Giant working, and everything but Element 3D working, most of my plug ins are good. Now time to check on Re:Vision plug ins!
