Underwater Scene

I wanted to create a free project file for the blog so I thought an underwater scene might be cool. I did a quick google search for some reference images of underwater scenery and then started to recreate one. It’s a bit slow to render but was an interesting experiment of using various effects for a specific reason. Have fun and remember everything is better under the sea!

By the way the only reason I’m linking to the Little Mermaid is because I have a daughter and NOT because it is my favorite movie : )

Dear Andrew-
you're starting to freak me out!
Everytime i have a major project going, and i need a certain effect or look and the deadline is 2-3 days away, you come up with something like this.
Thank you very much, and keep reading our minds!

I love this thing,getting my virtual scuba gear out...

Andrew you are my hero, I'm buying the AE2 as soon as you make it available!

By the way, this one guy at the top is talking about a fish in a blender...reminded me of that frog in a blender.
This is sooooo funny!!

PS

Andrew,

When you decide on a new project like this, what is your estimated time frame of completion? With trial and error, this would take me months...if I was ever able figure it out.

Thanks for providing these files to dissect. The subtleties of your work are inspirational.
Nicolas
May 5th, 2009 @ 6:49 am
Hey Andrew,
Shouldn't you be sleeping at 2 in the morning ?
Haha, just kidding...
Anyway the project is great, thanks again
Oh, and by the way, I wasn't in bed until 4 in the morning, may be because I just got After Effects, and also because I found this great website... ;)
thx and keep it coming

coincidentally i was going to request something like this a week ago. will still put it in tut requests, i think it could be quite a cool tutorial.

Ironically, I've been preparing a similar tutorial for my classes for a few weeks, but I have not released it yet… But as usual, yours renders much better :P

Great work Andrew ;)
Logi
May 5th, 2009 @ 7:59 am
Hey, great project Andrew! And you're right about the render-time... jeez!

PS
I saw an Icelandic commercial (It was like a year ago, I just remembered it now), for an electronics company and they were showing their new products and they used your "3D-offset" tutorial, "Designer Sound FX" and the tutorial that comes with it. It was a direct copy and I was like "Wow, that is so ripped of VideoCopilot!"

thanks Andrew for this project, but i got a question, How can i simulate fire above the surface, thats kind of a explosion you know i like go a little further i would appreciate your answer, Greetings from Dominican Republic.
Kristof
May 5th, 2009 @ 9:24 am
aah, too bad. I can't check the scene out. CC particle world makes AE crash on the new Mac Pro. Adobe and Cycore are aware of the problem, but have no sollution yet.

Any chance we can see a version of this with particular?

Anyway, looks good as always!
May 5th, 2009 @ 9:31 am
wow....if you use the 3d offset, words can come from the deep ocean towards the camera...thanks, andrew, i love the free templates you give
Chris McFall
May 5th, 2009 @ 9:57 am
Be interesting to see what every makes of this, I just filmed 2 underwater scenes for my masters, and whilst treating it came straight to video copilot for inspiration (as always) thanks for all the help Andrew :)
Ayberk Ozger
May 5th, 2009 @ 10:04 am
Andrew, I think you made and explosion in the amount of viewers of the Youtube video. Also check out the comments people posted there for you!
Russ
May 5th, 2009 @ 10:17 am
It's funny. The more I see your tutorials and look through your projects the more I realize that there are many aspects of AE of which I am ignorant (e.g. The many uses of Linear Wipe).

Great project. Who need psunami when we have Andrew? Seriously though, your techniques in conjunction with the wonderful psunami plugin will really spruce up my underwater work.
May 5th, 2009 @ 10:19 am
This is cool.
Actually, I have never seen the little mermaid.
You know how it is, I have two brothers (No sisters) and so of course when we were younger it was always, "EWW, a movie about a GIRL!? That's Embarrassing!" :)
May 5th, 2009 @ 10:33 am
Very cool Andrew
Thanks

Steve
May 5th, 2009 @ 11:32 am
What'd be more interesting, and beneficial, is pulling this project file apart and figuring it out, rather than have Andrew do a tutorial.

Assuming of course he isn't putting all sorts of his usual subtle trickery into it, in which case FORK OVER THE TUTORIAL, MAN! You have people going through the D.T.'s out here!!

Hey Andrew, I think you should sing "Under The Sea" on your next tutorial...lol. Or at least have Sam sing it with his guitar and have something fall on him...that would be wicked cool!
May 5th, 2009 @ 4:06 pm
I just cannot ever underestimate the extent of your talents, Andrew, this is truly excellent I'm a little lost for superlatives to express how great you are such clear vision of what you want to achieve and how to achieve it. Also your generousity in giving so much to the community in your words "awesome".

not to be to critical , as i love this FX , and all the other FX you bring to us mear mortals,but this looks like a weather sky with 'godrays' over some mystic ocean....
am i going mad....?
May 5th, 2009 @ 5:34 pm
I think it looks more like under an ice cover...
May 5th, 2009 @ 6:02 pm

It looks like this is a perfect example of where one would see falloff as well.

May 5th, 2009 @ 7:43 pm
Hey guys, just from experimenting with this, i added an adjustment layer on top with some curves to make it lava-like, then if you go into the "floor" layer, you can add some very well placed text
Nic
May 5th, 2009 @ 7:51 pm
It does not appear that the water surface at the top is moving... seems static.. no wave movement....but thanks.

andrew, the "the Little Mermaid" its a Great movie! its not the best movie of disney i think, but its a Disney´s production!
the movies of Disney are the top of the animation.
is the VideoCopilot of the animation!!! :)

by the way, my favorite movie of all time is The Lion King!
May 5th, 2009 @ 10:08 pm
thanks Andrew :)

hi andrew
no words for how good your website is and how helpful i have found all your tutorials. i have bought some of your products but cannot understand why you dont charge us a small fee for all your hard work. i would be happy to sign up to paying monthly for what you provide us with in terms of tutorials presets etc. personally I would be lost if you gave this up for something more lucrative so hence the query/suggestion.
thanks for everything

Hey Andrew.This is a brilliand idea but i was always wondering how do they imitate the "floating" effect in movies or videoclips.For ex. a man swiming into the scene.All this hair and body movements that look so airy.If you could help me that would be great.thnx in advance.

Eric S
May 8th, 2009 @ 11:32 am
Sorry if someone posted this already, but I didn't read all 100+ posts.

Add a CC Vector Blur (Amount: 100) to the "Surface" layer. Go into the "Surface" comp and set "time*200" expresion on the Fractal Noise. This will make the surface look more like waves and less like clouds, plus give it some movement. You can reduce the scale of the fractal noise also to make smaller "waves".

Haven't tried this, but...
To make the "ocean" seem less deep, you could also add a vector blur to the reflections on the ocean floor to make it look like the light is focusing more sharply on the floor like it does in a swimming pool or a shallow inlet.

dude Andrew it must have been an honor to have worked with JJ Abrams. I thought the man was gonna screw up another classic just like every other director who's tried. But it seems he has accomplished the best. I sat thru the entire movie even the end credits. I see you used your signature sure target for the credits lol awesome dude. Love your work.

Hi,

I doubt many people are going to looking back this far in the blog and then check out the comments but..

I downloaded this project when I first got AE CS3 middle of last yeaar and thought...damn. All it needs is a submarine and it would be perfect.

Well finally I got enough experience to be able to do just that, all due to Andy of course.

So here it is http://vimeo.com/11837316

I added the sub, a free 3DS model from Turbosquid, using Zaxwerks Invigorator plugin .

Can you make more project files on creating the natural worlds such as the tropical rain forest, looking inside volcanic lava activity, traveling in space with planets, being sucked in the Sahara desert, or just creating a ficticious planet with lush green life, and civilians of different creatures....Or even create a "the world after tomorrow" files. That's cool!
