Music and Animations

Here is some original music made by Jake South titled Poly-Tune with animations in time to the music.  I used Trapcode Sound Keys to generate key frames to drive some of the values of the plug-ins Trapcode Tao, Trapcode Mir, and Element 3D.

Rainbow Woods

Here is a short video of Rainbow Woods in Bath.  I used my DSLR for the timelapse and a Gopro Hero 3+ Black on a gimbal for some smooth shots. Unfortunately the Gopro has some exposure and colour problems now.  So I had to pick and choose the shots that didn’t go too funny and applied RE:Vision Effects Match Color which helped in Premiere Pro.  The photos for the timelapse were edited in Lightroom then brought into After Effects to scale them down and animate.
