"Flocks" Template - Add realistic birds to footage

Postby CreationEffects on 02/14/2018, 4:20 pm

After months of development, I am pleased to showcase our newest template at CreationEffects.com. Feedback welcome and appreciated.

Flocks lets users easily create realistic, 3D flocks of birds in Adobe After Effects. Animate birds individually, or combine them in unlimited numbers to form a 3D flock that automatically moves with realistic flocking behavior - you just tell them where to fly!

Choose from 12 species with pre-set flight behavior. The flight behavior and appearance of the flock is completely customizable using convenient controls. Whether your footage needs a single vulture in the background, or a murmuration with thousands of starlings - Flocks is the tool to get it done. Even After Effects novices can create high-quality, 3D bird animations for their videos!

Outstanding work. I especially love the murmurations, although the real thing can't be beat - even if it means standing for hours in a cold, wet Scottish field :)

Thank you Gerry. There are 10,000 Starlings in the murmuration clip! Care to guess how long that took to render? You're absolutely right though, nothing beats the real thing. Maybe one day I'll get to see that in person. For now, I'll have to live vicariously through my work :D

I really like your website actually. I need to get our guys holding the purse strings to loosen their grip once in a while.
So, how long did it take to render?

4 hours for the few seconds of starling murmurations :)
