About the author

My name is Eduard and my job has literally saved my life. I love experimenting and, probably, that is why I like this sphere with its immense potential for creativity so much. Normally, I draw inspiration from the life itself and from the desire to do something really cool (you know, like cool characters in the movies – you just want to be like one of them). What inspired me to make this course is that idea that sharing with others and helping them gives you one of the best feelings in the world.

COURSE CURRICULUM

What will I learn in Mad VFX?

PART #1

Element 3D Essentials

Visual effects are closely connected with 3D. VideoCopilot’s Element 3D is a powerful tool that allows you to create really mind-blowing 3D compositions with materials, textures and lightning directly in After Effects.
So, in this section Eduard will guide you through all the most necessary features of this tool and break down one of his own shots. He will also show you how to prepare your 3D models for animation in Element 3D using Cinema 4D. After completing this set of lessons you will be able to create your own full-fledged 3D comps.
