In this series of tutorials we will composite a shimmering fractal reveal in After Effects utilizing assets generated in Maya. We will be matchmoving a live action plate and creating proxy geometry of the scene in Maya. We will then export the geometry as OBJ assets and assemble them in After Effects. We will animate a fractal pattern to act as a matte for our transition and apply that to our 3D geometry using the Element 3D plug-in. To create vibrant glows we will be using plugins such as Radium, Sapphire, and Starglow whilst taking advantage of linear color-space to achieve the best results possible.
