I wanted to post an image of "GOING FOR GOLD!", but this is all that google images could come up with...


... sorry.

Luckily though, someone has the themetune hosted. FXhomers everywhere, listen to this music and bask in the glory of being a member of a gold-award winning community!

Going for, Going For, GOLD!

Well done guys smile

PS - On a side note, that themetune was composed by none other than Hans Zimmer. Now that's trivia.

Hehe, he did rather infest that magazine. We did a news post on it a couple of weeks ago:

See if you can beat our top score of 10 in the 'Spot the Sollthar' contest. wink

You guys deserve platinum...or diamond...or crystal....or some other version of the Pokemon gameboy game titles. But until something replaces gold as the highest title, gold is what you'll get. The said, AWESOME JOB FXHOME!!!!

*Cheers*

Keep on track with your software and you will earn much more gold Awards! And you deserve them! Good work guys!
You are the company who makes me use another tool than After Effects, because your product is more specific in creating effects for my kind of movies, and of cause....MUCH cheaper without qualityloss.

I love you and your support and your software! wink

Greetings

Thanks guys! Hopefully the good reviews will keep on coming in (touch wood!), as it's always really exciting to see what the pro journos think of your work. And we always get a slight thrill at just seeing our stuff in a Real Magazine. smile

There's lots more press coverage of FXhome coming up, so we'll keep you posted as things are published.

I love GGGGGGGGGOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLD

Interesting that he says there is too much emphasis on light sabres. But, as well as being the legacy, I think that light sabres pull people in and then they see that they can do so much more.

At the end of the day the best effects are usually the ones that you don't even realise are effects in the finished film, but light sabres stand out because obviously they don't exist in reality.
