    Mapping DEM Data Part IIMt hood 3
    In the first part of Mapping USGS DEM Data I created a 3D contour map and animated a route along the side of the mountain using mograph and After Effects. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to use the same DEM data to create a realistic mountain scene. The scene will use just a hand full of textures along with the terrain mask to give a great final look.Read More…

    Create Your Own Flourishes... Now in 3D!Preview image
    Using the new powerful 3D options in After Effects CS6, we will use Adobe Illustrator to create a flourish style design, animate the growth of the design in After Effects, and then extrude the paths into 3d space to give an "old" look some new life. The idea is to feel like animated strips of paper in 3d space.Read More…

    Create An Awesome Array Of Shattering StringsPreview image
    We'll be starting in Cinema 4d to create text fragments and use XPresso to export the Mograph positional data to After Effects. From there, we'll jump over into After Effects and use expressions to connect 3d nulls to 2d data points... We'll also be using a macro in Microsoft Word to edit multiple lines of expressions. It doesn't matter if you're a Cinema 4d user or strictly an After Effects user, today's tutorial should be something helpful for everyone!Read More…
