      Testing a model of the Ark of the Covenant by Juliano Storchi that I purchased from TurboSquid. The converted obj file was a mess (no fault of the original artist's), so I asked Fred to clean…

          For this project, I relied on a Trapcode Particular project from Red Giant People as a guide to creating multi-armed galaxy. In addition, I used Video CoPilot's Optical Flares, and some atmosphere…

            I thought I'd try making rings for Saturn in Element 3D. Each ring is a separate group, tinted a different color, and the E3D glow applied to the whole. I stuck the Voyager in there just to…

              Just for fun, I thought I'd experiment with the text extrusion and glow features of VideoCopilot's Element 3D. I decided to try a little homage to "Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow,"…

                Well, since I managed to "break" Element 3D (hopefully they can help me fix it next week), I thought that I would play around with shapes in AE. I usually only use masks on a solid to do…

                  This is an homage to Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. I'll always have a soft spot for this film - it was the first high-quality sci-fi film I ever saw, and it was the only movie my Dad…

                    I purchased this model from Turboquid - I like the model a lot and it is perfect what what I am planning to use it for, however... The C4D version comes into Element 3D as one piece, which makes…

                      The Apache helicopter model did not have details on the cockpit interior, so, with the help of Fred Mantel (http://fredmantel.com/), I got a cockpit model by Providence FX (http://t3ds.com/109273)…

                          This is an updated version of a previously posted Element 3D (VideoCopilot) plugin experiment. In the thumbnail, you can see that I experimented with adding a bump map (made quickly in Photoshop)…
