Transitions with Element 3D

Based on Greyscalegorilla.com’s tutorial for creating the Discovery Channel rebrand cube transition effect, I wanted to see if I could create the effect in After Effects with Element 3D.  In the end I had to model the cubes outside of After Effects but that was all.  All the mattes, specular, and ambient occlusion was done with …

Logo in chains

JEH Designs logo in chains.  I modeled two chain links in 3ds max and used Element 3D to replicate them into a full chain that would go around the logo.  The simple fence and padlock were also modeled in 3ds max and brought into Element 3D as OBJ files. Watch on Vimeo here.

Lights Camera Action

A short and simple animation using Lights Camera Action as the starting point.  I didn’t have an idea what the animation would be at the beginning.  I started with the model of the directors chair and then added things as I went, using Lights Camera Action as something to animate too.

Knock Knock Who’s There

I wanted to do an animation with a wrecking ball so I decided to use the Knock Knock joke as a starting point.  I didn’t try to make it funny and there wasn’t going to be a punch line, I just wanted a starting point to base the animation on. Watch on Vimeo here.
