TheVisualDigitalArts says:

Thanks man this helped me a lot. I don’t use 3ds max but I do take
advantage of passes in my program. until now i could never figure out how
to use all those passes together in after effects. again, Thanks. :)

…why i chose graphic designer…i so want to create videos and stuff D:

akaREPTILIAN says:

Hi, great tutorial.Ok, here is the problem. I have imported a t-rex from
3ds max into after effects cs6 as a png sequence. I am trying to make the
t-rex to walk behind from the trees. I did what you did in your video. I
duplicated 2 background layers. I then placed 1 of the background layers to
the top of the composition. I then used “linear key light.” At the end, the
t-rex is half transparent. Please reply asap before I forget what I am
doing in after effects lol!

Surfaced Studio says:

Not actually working ON VGHS – now THAT would be awesome, but freddiew gave
me permission to make some tutorials for the VFX from the first season, so
that is in the works :)

Sorry to bug you because I know you can be busy but I need some advice. I
want to make a battle scene that used a scythe but I’m not sure how to make
blood slices and limbs cutting off look good. I know you did a blood splat
like you got shot but would it be different if you wanted to do a blood
slice. If you could help that would be great. Thanks. Sorry again to bug

Surfaced Studio says:

For that you will also have to do a 3D integration effect and likely use
something like RayFire to shatter a glass object in your 3D program

Surfaced Studio says:

Man, you must have watched pretty much all videos on my channel by now :)
Thank you!

Surfaced Studio says:

Will put it on my list :) I’m considering doing a bit of a horror series
around Halloween, but I’m not sure in general when I’ll get around to doing
what. It’s been pretty busy lately for me haha. But the request is now on
my list :)

Surfaced Studio says:

Thank you – always great to hear that my tutorials are useful to others :)
