(Cambria, CA -April 21, 2006) CreativeCow.net, the industry-leading community of creative media professionals, is pleased to announce two new Creative Cow Master Series training DVD’s: Serious Effects and Compositing for After Effects 7, and The Apprentice Magician’s Guide to particleIllusion 3. Joining the Creative Cow Master Series titles is the addition of the first Creative Cow Master Tools title, InvigoMany - Volume One, a tool filled with sports related models, objects and other files to maximize the work of broadcast designers using the Zaxwerks tools and plug-ins.
In Serious Effects, Creative Cow leader Andrew Kramer teaches real world techniques and timesaving procedures not found in the After Effect manual. Throughout the approximately 3 hours of training, users will learn specialized compositing secrets and create stunning visual effects. Andrew Kramer’s popular tutorials appear regularly on CreativeCow.net and the Creative Cow AE Podcast.
In The Apprentice Magicians Guide to particleIllusion 3, Creative Cow leader Elvis Dean takes you through 21 tutorials covering virtually every feature of particleIllusion 3. The 100 minutes of instructional videos walk you through topics such as Forces, Emitter Masks, and basic emitter creation, with a healthy dose of tips and tricks thrown in. Elvis has previously created training videos that shipped with particleIllusion 3.0.
Also new to the Creative Cow family is the Creative Cow Master Tools: Powerful tools for the Creative Professional. InvigoMany – Volume 1, the first title in the new series, was developed by Creative Cow Leader Serge Hamad, with the goal of providing 3D objects for use in sports-related animation. The target audience for the product include broadcast professionals who quickly need a 3D object and don't want or can't create it in a 3D program, and those who are interested in animating 3D objects in Adobe After Effects using Zaxwerks Invigorator for AE and/or ProAnimator as well as the New ProAnimator for AE. All After Effects projects are fully customizable, ready for animation, and designed with the goal of educating the end-user. Serge Hamad regularly contributes articles and tutorials to CreativeCow.net’s constantly growing team of experts.
