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.
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!
