Cool AE/Particular smoke tutorial

Check out this tutorial to make some nice looking whispy smoke in AE using Particular 2:
Don't worry - if you follow the tutorial the smoke you end up getting looks better than the preview, and with some simple tweaks you can make it more scattered, or more whispy, etc. Enjoy!

I always suspected as much...

I wouldn't normally put political related posts on here, but it was on the news tonight that Dick Cheney has no pulse..... OMG that's just too funny on so many levels. But, I guess I'm not really all that surprised!

New Old Spice commercial

They've done it again, another very well done, and funny, Old Spice commercial:

Old Spice commercial

This one I think is still mostly practical photography, but this one certainly has some heavy vfx going on. At the very least he had to be wearing a wire rig since he clearly doesn't jump off the falls - so they had to paint out the harness and wires (or can the whole harness fit under his shorts?) Then, the change to pants and boots at the end is either cg replacement on his lower body, or it was a separate take? There's some spots that look fishy - like when the two sections separate at the opening - the shadows under the sections as they move away don't look right - that section may have been composited over a lake background, or maybe they had to paint out some of the rig to carry the sections.

Either way - another fantastic spot!
