Another cool Animation made with Element 3D!

Someone tweeted this cool title animation to me @videocopilot and I was really impressed by the subtle use of atmospheric effects with the Element 3D. Notice the turbulent displacement and smoke effects accompanied by some nice camera work too.

Here is the final Video in HD

The best part is the sweet behind the scenes video!

I actually reached out to the designer and asked him why he chose to use Element 3D… Here are a few responses:

“I used Element 3D mainly because it integrates real 3D animation in AE that it is lightning fast.

“Setting up the camera move and animation for the gears and the tunnel scene allowed immediate, almost final results that was a major time saver.”

Well…Get that man a Beer! (Disclaimer: no beers were used to influence the opinions at this time.)

What’s interesting is this is exactly the reason I use Element 3D for a lot of my own work.

I can focus on look development and tweak the settings in real-time as I move lights or cameras so you can see what the final result will look like as you fine-tune effects like fog and material settings. True “Compositing Speed!”

Everyone at Video Copilot  is jazzed to see our tools being used by so many talented artists and we look forward to future!

I'm Sorry Shape Layers! I love you!

At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]

In this tutorial we’ll use After Effects to create a realistic water effect without any 3rd party plug-ins! Great for adding atmosphere to a rainy scene or title. This effect is fully customization and can be used to create many cool FX! In this tutorial: Create a dripping water displacement map Simulate realistic camera DOF […]
Destruction Experiment!
What is this thing! I’ve basically combined a bunch of stuff into one experiment! I might have been inspired by the amazing planet explosions from The Force Awakens but wanted to see if I could get a cool version inside Element 3D. Few Notes on this experiment; I added smoke elements, shockwaves using CC Sphere, and even […]
