Sliding Puzzle Animation

Photoshop was used with the Slice tool to slice up the image into square sections. In After Effects the square sections were used as textures for Element 3D and applied to the square puzzle pieces. Each puzzle piece is animated with the aux channels.

Pin Art Logo Animation

Animation based on the Pin Art toy.  Element 3D was used to model the toy and the animation engine to reveal my JEH Logo with the pins.  CC Ball Action was used to create the mask shapes for the pins in Element 3D.

Sham Castle

Sham Castle

A fake castle overlooking the City of Bath, built in 1762 next to the Bath Golf Club.

Timelapse images were edited in Lightroom and put together in After Effects, with  timing adjustments made in Premiere Pro.

 

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.

 

Trapcode Tao Gloop

A Trapcode Tao experiment with points.  Starting off with a circle and some fractal displacement with the evolution animated over time, also on an adjustment layer CC Vector Blur and a Glow.

 

The Nexus with the Saber plugin

Here’s the Nexus from Star Trek Generations made up of a few solids with the Saber plugin.

 

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.
