Hey man, could you maybe try and make a tutorial on the snap effect. you know when you gather all 6 stones and they send all kinds off effect through your body and burning your skin in the process? yeah so that effect hasn't been done by anyone with professional skill

Incredible tutorial! So many useful tricks!

September 1, 2019

Do you have a list of all effects that you used?

September 3, 2019

when I invert the matte for 'set matte', the entire effect disappears. I can't find any fixes. Help please?

Million-dollar VFX budget to Red Giant: Am I a joke to you?

She has the worst looking effects, it’s a shame… I mean I don’t know how else you could do it but I can tell you… the way marvel did it isn’t the way.

i love this tutorial

December 15, 2019

you did ok job but those effect look like overlapping on that character not interacting with that character
with displacement map it can be happen but you should make option where artist can define surface where that interaction will happen.
Currently i compare movie scene with your scene and honestly i didn't like it.
now with displacement map it can be possible but it will be much better if in this plug in it self we get option

hi good morning sir, good job perfect action video ……

December 25, 2019

Thanks for a great tutorial, and thanks for birniging some concepts about using the effects, not just teaching step by step how to achieve a specific goal. I believe it´s the most important thing in a tutorial: to understand the concept beneath the excercise.
