Boxes

Too much packaging!

A simple box animation using 3D solids in After Effects.  The solids are parented to each other so that they could be animated as if the boxes were opening.

Progress Wrestling Animations

Here is a selection of my favourite Wrestler animations that I made for Progress Wrestling.  The animations are around 10 seconds long and incorporate any of the Wrestlers logos, colours, nicknames, or tag lines.  The animations are always fun to make as each Wrestler is different.

For more information about Progress Wrestling you can visit the Facebook page – Progress Wrestling or the website at – ProgressWrestling.com  and you can follow them on Twitter here – @ThisIs_Progress

BB-8 Roll-By

A short animation testing out some of the free Star Wars 3D models from Video Copilot for Element 3D.  All the models look great, going to have some fun with these I think.  Just animate and render!

Spirograph with Trapcode Tao

I applied the Spirograph expression from Dan Eddbert’s site Motionscript.com to the position of a Tao light and played about with the values.  I also added some copies with the repeater for the last Spirograph.

For more Spirograh watch the video Spirograph with Trapcode Particular which uses the same expression.

Tao Twisted Circle Animation

Another Trapcode Tao experiment.  A basic Tao circle was used as the main element with a twist applied.  A grid texture was added to the inner first circle to give a structure look to it. The particles are CC Particle World on a reversed pre-comp.
