Music Videos Contest

On January 15th, we end one video reels contest and begin the next one. The TRAILERS contest will end, and the new MUSIC VIDEO contest begins.

On January 15th we will announce the winner of $1000 in our TRAILERS contest, along with the winner of our $500 award to the person whose review comments were the most informative and insightful in rating their personal choices.

Then, we start the new MUSIC VIDEO contest in which any music video entered between January 15 and February 28 is eligible for the contest. Music videos entered before the entry date do not count and only videos entered between the contest dates are included in the contest (you can turn off a past entry and re-enter it again if you wish). You can also find the complete rules here.

So, visit our Videos-Reels section and take part in our newest addition to Creative COW. It is quickly becoming one of the most popular parts of Creative COW.

Trapcode's Particular & Adobe After Effects Video Tutorials with Project Files

The inspiration to create this tutorial DVD on Particular came when Michael Park realized just how integral to media creation particles have become. From advertisements, to feature films, to television shows, particles are literally everywhere. He chose to use Trapcode’s Particular as his particle generator of choice because of the immense flexibility it affords and some of the unique features it offers compared to the particle generators inside of After Effects.
