NEW TUTORIAL: Galactic Orb

Posted by on Feb 14, 2011 in Blog | 8 comments


Look! Up in the Sky. It’s a Bird. It’s a plane.  No, it’s a Galactic Orb!

In this exciting new tutorial we will build a compelling infinite zoom animation inside After Effects with only built-in Plug-ins. We’ll start by building the orb using real-life textures and then animate a camera through 3D particles. Timing is everything and you don’t want to miss this full-feature tutorial, complete with a video introduction!

  7. Nice tutorial Andrew, it’s really a great yet simple technique. But is that a new VCP plugin I see called Particle Displace? That sounds awesome, does it displace Particle World particles? Because I remember you mentioning using turbulent displace if you don’t have Particular which has displacement settings.

  8. Good to know that some truths still stand. 2 orbs > 1 orb and curves > levels. Gotta love it.
