A Study in Speed Dependent Particles

Posted by laidlow on March 16, 2009 | No comments

The Particular plugin starts emitting particles only when the pixels/second of the logo goes over 200 p/s, and then the amount and fly-out speed of the particles depend on the speed that the logo is moving at, using a simple expression like:


S = thisComp.layer("Text").transform.positio n.speed;
if(S > 200){
30*S;
} else {
0;
}

After Effects Shadow Study

Posted by laidlow on March 12, 2009 | No comments

A study of shadow projections in After Effects. The fence, hand and logo text are all keyed layers placed way behind the camera and in front of a light source, and then projected onto the stage, which holds a still image of a wall, with particles of smoke and dust catching a hard light. Sound effects were sampled from my squeaky front door and other objects laying around and edited and twisted in Cubase.
