Previous Projects with Expressions: Some Property names have changes which may cause expression links to break. However this change will help avoid expression conflicts in the future now that every parameter have unique names. If necessary all older versions of Element 3D are available in the download section if you need to revert to an older version temporarily.

Please note the updated GPU Requirements that have raised slightly after further testing.

Presenting in LA tomorrow! Come say Hi!

If you are near LA tomorrow night please drop by my presentation for After Effects and whatever else is going through my mind!  Last year it was great to meet so many of you and see your real faces!

We’re going to talk about some recent title work and some new features of Element 3D V1.6 that will be out soon.  One new feature includes the above image for creating an elevation map. Lots of possibilities! Plus I’ll take questions and answers from the audience, always risky!!

Tickets:
Currently there are less than 90 tickets left and it usually sells out pretty fast. This month especially because they have really great prizes and food  We’re even giving away several Element 3D bundles too!

DMALA: Tuesday 3-12-2013 At 6:30pm to 10PM

Get your tickets now and save a few bucks!

Particle Experiments + Project

Just another fun day playing with Trapcode Particular!  I basically linked the particle emitter to a Null Object with a wiggle expression then start playing with the turbulence and auxilary particle creation.  Then I added some lens textures from Optical Flares and various images in Photoshop.  Admittedly it’s been a while since I’ve jumped into Particular with spare time to play around with all the settings since Element 3D usually keeps me pretty busy these days. Fun to break away from making software and just try to be a little creative.

If you want to play around with the project and see my settings you can download below. Just beware the render times can be slow with millions of particles being emitted.
