1. THIS, really was play time just to see if I could. The Tripod was NOT created in a 3D program such as 3DMax or Blender etc. it was created solely from layer masks and imported into video copilot's Element 3D After Effects plug-in.

    The opening scene was a photo taken from google, seperated into layers to create parallax in a 3D camera move in After Effects.

    Other plug-ins used, Good ol' Optical Flares, Real Clouds, Action Essentials, Reflect and Element 3D. I mention video copilot at the end of the video solely to show my support on the great work they do.
    Keep it up guys.

    Oh one more thing. What a day to upload to Vimeo, 12th of August. Anyone who knows the Jeff Waynes version of War Of The Worlds will know:- "At midnight, on the 12th of August, a huge mass of aluminous gas erupted from mars and sped towards earth, across 200 million miles of void, invisibly hurtling towards us, came the first of the missiles that would bring so much calamity to earth"

  2. As the Title says, a total of 3 simple drawn layer masks created this model in Adobe After Effects. The Video Copilot plug-in Element 3D created all....with a little imagination. Music from Star wars Phantom Menace by composer John Williams.

  3. This video moves fast and although not a tutorial in the traditional sense, this video shows how to be creative using only After Effects and the Plug in from Video Copilot, Element 3D. Additional VC tools were Action Essentials and designer sound effects for the music.
