Lego Firework Animation

The Lego firework rocket was made in Studio and animated in After Effects. The firework explosion was created with Trapcode Particular with Lego bricks rendered from Studio as a sprite.

Fall Back Time!

It’s Fall Back Time! The clocks go back one hour. The figure falling back is from Mixamo and brought into Element3D. The leaves were animated with Trapcode Particular.

Puzzle Cube Animation

My attempt at creating a Rubik’s Cube animation in After Effects with Element 3D. I used the basic cube in Element 3D to make the collection of cubes, that make up the puzzle. The colour panels were made with an extruded mask. For the animation I had to use two copies of the puzzle, one for the vertical and one for the horizontal.

May The 4th Be With You!

Happy Star Wars day!

Spring Forward Time!

Spring Forward! Daylight savings time clocks go forward one hour. The slinky was made with Trapcode Tao and animated in After Effects, along with the hands on the clock.

Lenticular Animation Tutorial in After Effects

In this tutorial I show you how to create a lenticular effect in After Effects, without any plugins. The slice tool in Photoshop will be used to cut up the images into slices. Which will then be positioned and animated in After Effects.

First Few Drone Flights

This video contains clips from my first few flights with the DJI Mini 2 Drone. It’s a fun and easy to fly little drone, but I’m still getting used to it. I’m trying not to worry about if it’s a good shot or if it’s properly exposed at the moment, I’m focusing more on controlling the drone and attempting to fly smoothly.

Even though these clips are from my first few flights I am pleased how they turned out and look forward to more flying.

Animated Lego Rendered with Studio and After Effects

The Lego models were built and animated in Studio from BrickLink, then rendered. Additional animation was done in After Effects, like the bats flapping wings. Trapcode Particular was used to make the cloud of Bats.

The build up animation for the Ae file logo and Dracula was done automatically in Studio.
