Image spinning around itself effect

Postby Boogie on 08/28/2015, 4:16 am

Does anyone know which app is used to make this effect?

Or if there is any tutorial on how to do it in After Effect.

It's a 360 degree spherical map projected on the inside of a sphere filmed from an animated comp camera with a wide angle lens with it's position offset from the center.

I think that is a projection from stationery point light at a top of a ball, shot through the ball with the spherical image map, onto a flat surface, while the ball is spinning. What you see is the projection on the plane from the top (or bottom).

Relatively easy to do in a 3D program. Can't think of a way of doing it in AE off the top of my head.

This is what I meant... And I ended up animating the sphere, not the camera, but would look the same of course. And I only rotated it in X but you can set the rotation how ever you want...

Hey, that's good -- and can be done in AE. I guess that's basically the same effect, just replacing the light with a camera.

And you can kinda do it just using the built in plugins but what you don't get is that camera position offset...

Thanks guys for the replies!

Cool examples!

I feel like however that it's something else when i compare them to each other... like it's wrapping around itself in a more distorted way..
I don't know the proper terminology but it feels like it is maybe two spherical forces pulling on each other in some way. For example:
picture.png

(left and right are both spheres).

I don't need to replicate it in AE as long as I know the name of the app though. I know for a fact that the creator have used some sort of app. Do any of you have any ideas what that could be?


Regards from Sweden!
