Tron Pilot



Here’s a test I did today based on the graphics from the Tron Trailer using only After Effects and Optical Flares. It’s not perfect but it was very interesting trying to recreate the look without using a 3D program. I’m going to relax this weekend and then perhaps make a tutorial or release a project file.

Have a great weekend everyone!

watched tron... in the intro either you made it, or they totally used your assets for the look down from the buildings... the 3d city looking down over sams head tuts. crazy... if you did it, nice, if not, well, still inspiring people with slightly larger pics. well done.

Here is a test that I did of the tron Logo using after effects and Optical flares. The 3d letters where done in Modo. I made and outline of the text using illustrator than imported the text into modo. In modo I textured the inside of the text with a grid pattern and the front faces I left white. Then I animated each letter coming in at different speeds. Then I took the animation and composited in after effects over a tron like picture. I slapped in some flares in the back ground like little cars running around. I think it looks pretty close. I need to work on the glow look alittle..

Cheers..

Could it be you used Shatter, and reversed it? I've used that technique and got pretty good looking 3d effect with letters flying from behind the camera and setting up correctly.

Still trying to figure out how you created that luminescent glow on the edges of the letters... Maybe duplicated the shatter layer, and lowering the extrusion depth. Then adding a nice gloweffect (trapcode shine maybe?) and change transform mode to add.

That should work. Gotta try it tomorrow when I got the time!

I`ll just point out one thing. I`m really not sure what focus mm of the camera, but in the end when you lay off the text it bends in a very strange way.
Is there anyway to combine 2 cameras for it not to bend like that or I dont know...? Im not any expert but I know you love to make your videos as perfect as posible.

Hi Andrew,
I have a lot of question about this video:
1st - why only after effects? With a 3D app (like cinema4D.. for example) yo can matte frontal text and extrusion and composite that two layer in AE with more accurate results
2nd - i think the text animation is too rigid, with more flexibility (more dynamics..maybe?) how the result will be?

(apologize my english ^_^)

    You should be able to do this all of the way back to After Effects 6.5 (assuming you have some of the more modern plug-ins). Not too much has changed since then, just GUI enhancements and a few new tools like rotobrush and 64bit-ness.

    Render times might be a little scary though... I'm sure that was a 32 bit project.

    yeah ofcourse, i know various 3rd party-plugins who could achieve the same result. I was curious since I believe cs5 now at least has a more decent '3d support' on textlayers. (correct?)

    well if you actually look at some of his tutorials you can put some of those together to make that heres some tips
    using tutorial 103 to make the lights at the edges and using
    tutorial 18 to creat the light strokes to represent the letter and on the O make duplicate it make on smaller or bigger then jsut animate it and you can buy some of their products to add more effectss to it maybe twitch is good
    to add some tiny effects to it or you can just using some footage from action essentials 2 to add some more prekeyed
    footages to get well more effects loll..
    oh and by the way a 13 year old figured out how to do this
    oh and you can also use one of the presets they made and gave out for free (how kind of them i was thinking they should have sold it instead) like the lightsaber glow v1 or v2 to add that glowy effect :) well thats all
    this is TheEditor
    go to my youtube channel i would bbe starting tutorials on 2011 nothing like andrew kramers i dont want to copy him
    even though he does a very good job
    im ditching being a doctor i wanna work for video copilot
    hoping theyll still be alive when i can get a job... loll
    my name in youtube is MrAmylP
