Almost Human Main Title

So…. I’ve been busy lately finishing up some intense work on the main title for the new FOX show Almost Human and tonight is the second episode of the series!

Working on this sequence was both fun and challenging but as always, it was great to part of another cool project!  We used After Effects along with 3DS Max and even some Element 3D to create many of the shots. Originally the title sequence was going to be shorter but it evolved into a longer montage about the show.  We ended up working on about 10 shots that were edited together with footage from the show to help tell the story.

I’ll try to create a more detailed video breakdown soon, but here are some still frames of some of my favorites.

This digital Iris was created by filming a real eye with a Canon 5DM3. Then I used several 3D layers to add depth to the vein network as the camera passes through into the Main Title.

This room was created in 3DS max with help from the Video Copilot modelling team via Stefan & Alex.  I compositied in After Effects with the Z-pass to add depth of field.  The shot included some really cool high-tech screens as well as detailed medical equipment from the future! Luckily we had a render farm because this shot took about 8 minutes per frame to render.


This gun model was created in 3Ds Max and imported into After Effects with Element 3D for precise animation & lighting.

This hand shot was rendered in entirely in Element 3D from a high quality hand model. The digital circuits were created in After Effects and mapped to the hand using a second copy of Element 3D on top of the original to give it a glowing effect.

Another E3D shot of the camera flying over the police badge.

Be sure to check out the show tonight!

Hey Andrew, love all the work you're getting and I look forward to more! Was wondering, the little lines in the eye and hand don't look as much like circuitry as I expected, but looked more organic, same for the under-the-skin effects within the show. Was that a stylistic choice from a production designer or did you do that on your own?
1 year ago
Amazing work, Andrew. I love the fact that you based the digital Iris on a real eye filmed with the (in my opinion) woefully underrated Mark III. Throw some Zeiss prime glass on that camera, and you've got some pretty decent image capture capabilities indeed! We use large sensor DSLRs for much of our work in corporate film as well.

Andrew, my husband and I are huge fans of the show. We both recognized VC's work and were really impressed. The special FX are incredible, but I'm a writer. So the story always comes first to me. And this show brings the best of both worlds--great story with stunning visual effects. Kudos all around!

I'm making new computer system specially for After effects any suggestion is welcome.
    Robert Johnson
    1 year ago
    For the Processor:
    For video editing I'd suggest the Intel i5 4670k if you're on a budget. But if you have the extra cash go for the i7 4770k. But if you have a lot of money go for one of the i7 extreme processors!!
    For the Graphics card:
    I'm an Nvidia fan (don't know much about AMD) you'd want to go for any GPU between the GTX 670 and the GTX 780.
    For the RAM:
    You can go for 8Gbs of DDR3 RAM but if you can get 16Gbs of Ram.
    For the MotherBoard:
    That's really up to preference but I have an Asus Z87-K. (Don't spend 200-300 dollars on a motherboard, spend around 100 bucks).
    Get a good case like the Cooler Master series.
    If you're going to have a lot of videos go for at least a 1TB Hard Drive.
    (Optional): If you want, get an SSD for your OS (because frankly they're too expensive to have like games and data on them).
    Get a good power supply, but make sure your breaker won't get triggered!
    Are you planning on building it yourself?

    @Lj | Here is some great information. I used a lot of what Dave recommended and built an incredible system. I've had it online for about four months now running a ton of tools including the complete Adobe CC collection and VC Element3D obviously. It's overclocked a bit, but pretty close to a stock system... and it's ~extremely~ fast.

    I did use a couple large SSD's and a couple Raids and it's liquid cooled which raised the price a bit... but take a look at these links and they might help you choose a path that will work for you.

    I also ordered all the parts from Amazon which made it super easy/fast and their return policy is fantastic.

Help Andrew I need Help!!
I'm working on a shot where a character has a lens flare in each hands, and a "magic" solid between those lens flares. I've got the lens flares hand tracked and I want to find a way so that on side of the solid is connected to one lens flare's position, and the other side of the solid is connected to the other lens flare's position, tracking doesn't work for this shot. I could go frame by frame but it'd be way too long because I would need to adjust size, rotation, AND position. Please help me!!
Thanks!

So very cool as usual. If you have about 2mins 40 sec, please check out the teaser and trailer I made for my movie, shot in Tanzania, both of which use a lot of element3d and jetstrike. I even used element for the title on the poster, which is here also: www.our-story.co

I have learned so much from you and e3d was a major ingredient in the film's war sequeneces.

thank you for awesome products and generous sharing of knowledge, as well as promoting this great community.

I love the work you made for the title, but I must say I don't fancy the whole idea behind the main title itself.
I mean, all the shots are great in terms of quality and so on, but the whole lot looks like a sort of recap intro and not a jaw-breaking super title. All that footage that seems taken from some episodes and edited with your work (which almost seems sped up) makes me feel like your work hasn't been given the justice it deserves.

Any tutorials on how to map textures, bump and all from our own models into E3D? So that we can create our own models in C4D or Max and bring them into E3D for animation like this? I haven't figured out how to export the textures and bring them in. Am I missing something? Have you already covered this? Thanks AK for everything.

    Thanks again JJ! This is how I've been doing it, but, specular and bump has no control and I wanted to see how do we already have all of the slots populated like with a model from VC. AK are we able to do that or is that a VC secret?
    JJ does FX
    1 year ago
    You have to manually fill each of the texture slots - diffuse, specular, refl. etc. There is no automated way to assign textures to each of the texture slots.

    Once you've done it though, just right-click on the model name above and choose Save as Model Preset.

    It is then saved as an E3D fle for future use with all textures included so you only do it once.

    I agree. Have stated it about 3-4 times. I am starting to think that Andrew refuses to do anything unless it will be perfect. Remember what Hitchcock said Andrew, "You hope to achieve 60 percent of what you have envisioned." Nothing is going to be perfect. "Just do it!" We see more in you than an after effects guy. Your little demon cam video proved it. Now get it done! If you need ideas, let us know.

    That's actually pretty low use of element. Model of ship you used is such a waste of time and assets.

    Heh. Easy there buddy.

    The lettering, cuts, and camera were intended to be very amature.
    That's why my 7-year-old was doing the cinematography on this one.
    I let him do the lettering and cuts too. He's never edit before.

    After we run through the gate, there's a close up scene of the Falcon hovering over the street which I may release later.

    The clip of it landing told the story, so I kept it short. :)

    In saying the model I used was a waste of time and assets, you made my point: Element handled the render of the detailed Falcon very well. Took 3 minutes to render the landing scene. I'm always very impressed with what Element makes possible and I push it's limits almost every day.
    I've been using it since it was released on about 70% of my commercial work. More examples at crestvfx.com

    My point to Andrew was I'm excited that most Star Wars ships are static models maneuvering in space. And because Element handles detailed models so well, it could handle a lot of space shots in the next Star Wars film.
    X-Wing Squadron arrays, Star destroyers, Death-stars, and more. -Well, if there are any death stars to blow up in the next trilogy.

Saw the title sequence and I had a feeling it was you guys. There were a few other visual effects that looked like they had a Video Copilot influence. Did you do anything else?

Thanks Andrew. It's cool to see what is happening and how. Are you using Max more than C4D? I don't know why I thought you always used C4D.
