One of the pleasures of the holiday period is being able to mess around and experiment with the software I work with, without feeling guilty about doing it in 'working' hours. I guess anyone who's self-employed will understand this well.
In Trapcode Form 2 it's now possible to import 3D 'object' files into After Effects and add particles to their vertices. So, I thought I would create a very simple 3D object (a sphere) in Cinema 4D, export it as an .obj file and play around with it in After Effects to see what I could produce..
The movie below is my tinkering. It took about a day to produce and render. The music is from a really lovely album called 'Floating' by Ketil Bjørnstad, a Norweigian Classical/Jazz Pianist. I've been looking for something to animate to this music since I first heard the track six months ago..
The render below obviously isn't as good as the 32-bit HD version I mastered, but hopefully you'll get the idea...
Enjoy the music anyway...
