Making a hypnotic swirl in After Effects/3DS Max?

Postby Erik_Strider on 03/6/2016, 4:14 am

Hello there,

I was wondering how you would do a hypnotic swirl like here in after effects or a 3D program.

There is one in this trailer at 1:49 I wanted to recreate, unfortunately I have no Idea how to start:

My guess is it was probably created in some 3D programm. Also the sound is really cool.


I would be stocked if someone could help me out with that.


Love,

Erik

Looks like a textured tube shape made in 3D with a Twist modifier on it. Most 3D programs have a way to twist a shape and after you put a shiny material on it achieving the spiral is easy.

Before I have to pay the money. I have 3ds Max installed but I haven't used it in ages..


Normally I would just buy it, but I would feel kinda dumb because it's seemingly easy to make.

Here's both a simple 2D setup as well as a Element 3D setup for you. :)
