Fancy Ring Design

Despite working on some TV shows, I don’t actually get to watch very much television. Something you may not know about me is that I am a big Law & Order fan, mostly of the older cast but some of the new stuff is pretty good. Lucky for me, the cable network TNT plays tons of reruns all day long.

So, earlier this year I noticed network graphics had changed, and the new ones were simply amazing. It seems the design studio TROIKA created the incredible work that very much inspired me. After playing around with the concept, I realized there were a lot of great techniques that I thought would be useful to share. Although the original design seems to use a lot of 3D, I’ll be using just After Effects with a little bit of Particular in the upcoming tutorial. Release date will be soon.

Even the metallic ring is built in After Effects.
