Description

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.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, My name is James within, and I'm a freelance composite of my latest projects include Compositing and Motion, designed for Daft punk, really Mental and Havana Brown, to name a few in this course will be looking at the process of creating a shimmering fractal reveal will be matched trading in PF track, creating three D geometry and Maya and compositing in after Fixed with the help of video Co. Pollitz, Element three d plugging by the end of this course, will have a firm understanding of how to composite three D geometry in aftereffects. Using element three day, you also have the techniques obviously, to achieve the most vibrant glow is possible using and linear workflow. I'm really excited to be sharing this techniques with your community, so sign, you know, sign up and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
