nice tut.thank you
Keep checking back. There are more cool tutorials coming down the pipe you won’t want to miss!
Fascinating! I am not a techie on this stuff and it’s intriguing. Thanks for sharing! Nice job!
love these tutorials but they are too small to really see what you are doing….and there doesn’t seem to be any way to make it larger. I’m a newbie and I spend a lot of time going back and forth.
…any help in that area ?
Great tutorial J! Now I have no reason to smash real glass to produce the same effect. Haha!
Hey folks! Thanks for the great feedback.
Hey Tim, I had a real debate on that tutorial, if I zoomed in to the dialogue boxes people wouldn’t be able to see what was happening on screen.
If I did both, it would have made the tutorial a constant zoom in, zoom out that could get distracting after awhile plus to do it right I would have had to pause inbetween the zooms and it would have doubled the length of the tutorial.
In future tutorials I will try and find a nice balance if I can so it is easier to read what I am typing in.
Thanks again for continuing to watch the tutorials and for your most excellent feedback.
J, the solution here isn’t necessarily to zoom in on the screen, but instead offer a large version of the video (as in full size).
Flash is, in general, a pretty bad medium for delivering high-quality video, so I’d suggest offering the ability to download a .mov version. That, or a link to a large version of the flash video player that plays a larger high-quality video.
That is actually a standard that powers higher than myself have control over. I just submit my tutorials and then they are formatted for the website. I do know they have their reasons for the decisions they have made on that front.
Thanks again for your feedback!
nice tutorial!! do you think you can make your tutorials a bit bigger? like http://www.videocopilot.net or http://www.futuredesigns.ca ??? that would be awesome! thanks
Great tutorial! I was just wondering where do you get the 3D image of the shattered glass?
J. This site ROCKS! It will make my concept music videos so much better.Order the trial
magazine and without a doubt will get the
one year subscription.Told the guys in electronic pre press about this site.
[...] Launch tutorial Share and Enjoy: [...]
How can I watch it in full screen?
Thank you very much
Great Tutorial indeed, simple yet very powerful!!!
how can i have the shatter image of a glass?
how do you re-time the shatter plugin
im finding a problem trying to get it to last more than a few seconds
[...] Link [...]
i want some notes
Is there a way to make the glass just slowly crack up and not really shatter? Like to have it crackle, and then a couple peices of broken glass just easily fall out on to the floor. How can that be done?
Very Impressive!!!!!!!!! 4 thumbs up including my two big toes.
Great Tutorial, but when the ball goes through the class in a perfect straight line, and at the speed it is going, wouldn’t the glass shoot out more before falling down? How can we create that? Thanks!
very very nice
Cool tutor. Thanks
Good tutorial, but need a british accent. All tuts these days are done by Brits. (HAHAHA!) Minus AK of course…
I like this very much
Hi everybody with size problems…. maybe this will help:
press command (PC control) &
+ (size up)
- (size down)
0 (back to original)…
Great tut! thank you so much for this site!
Muito Bom Mesmo :]
nice!!! Thank you for the tutorial…
Just one comment : the rotation of the ball, i think it should be ccw, not cw…
Borrys Hasian is correct. To correct this, you can change the rotation to -1x instead of 1x. That will give it the correct backspin of a typical thrown baseball.
is here used any brush on photoshop? if it used any tools (Like: brush, plugin etc..) then please inform me.
i want to create this thanks for tutorial.
