CG Shadows

Here is a sample of what’s coming up on Video Copilot. The idea is to make your CG objects cast shadows in the real world. The first image shows a Text Layer in AE casting a shadow on the street using a transparent solid layer. The second example is a 3D object with a matte/shadow material on a floor plane. This material allows only the shadow to render on the object so you are able composite in a live action scene.

PLUG-INS
After Effects New York this Thursday

The free AENY meeting is around the corner and I’m still not sure what I’ll be presenting but I’m sure it will be exciting or at the very least you will get your money’s worth. I’ll be joined by Aharon Rabinowitz, Jim Geduldick and Adobe’s Dennis Radeke, so I’m sure it will be plenty of fun.

Now I just have to pack some shorts, squeeze out half of my toothpaste and find a ride to the airport.

The information about the meeting is can be found at the AENY website.

NEW TUTORIAL: 3D Vines

In this tutorial I’ll show you how we created the 3D vines from our Twitch Promo video. We will be using 3D Studio Max and finishing in After Effects. This may not the most advanced tutorial but it certainly isn’t for beginners.

I’d also like to remind you that our new Plug-In for After Effects is available now so if you have been thinking about some of our products, now is the time. Be sure to check out our new Bundles as well.
