Title test with unified Element 3D (letters)

Postby Carsten on 02/9/2016, 3:10 am

I have made a test for a title sequence. The main aim was to animate the letters "VIDEO COPILOT". So each letter has its own group in 3 unified Element 3D effects. With this method it was easy to control every letter with a Group Null and add fire stock footage, Particular and lights to each letter individually.



Any thoughts?

It's a good for a test. Some thoughts for future tests might be to change the camera angle and movement. Maybe get a little closer to the jets? The shadows (reflections?) are much too strong.

Here is my 2nd test of the title sequence.

Thanks your for reply.

This time I changed the camera angle during movement, shadows and made a different jet animation.



Ok, now the word Element 3D is too short in the view, but it took some time to render this scene with motion blur.

:D

Imagine you had to film this in real life, how would you mount/move a camera like that in real life? You can du a perfect render and composite but it'll still be an obviously animated sequence unless your camera is believable.

Thanks for your quick reply.

I have to mention that want take some real footage and integrate the exploding title effect with the camera tracker. So I did this test with Metropolitan to get an idea of effect and what to keep in mind when I take the footage with the camera shake in the moment of the explosion.

I have made 3. test.



Has anyone a good tip to make the bus sidewindows transperant so that you can see the letters in the Background?
