3D Photo Effect for LearnWake

I took an image sequence, masked out the pics in Photoshop, and then created a 3D world using After Effects.

3D Photo Effect for LearnWake

This was an image sequence shot with a Nikon D200 camera. I brought the sequence into Photoshop and cut the rider out of each shot. Then, in After Effects, I created a 3D world and placed the photos into the composition. Finally, I took an After Effects camera and made the animation. This is a small piece of a larger video that I created for LearnWake.com. Narration in this clip is by Kyle Schmidt.

3D logo animation using Maya and Adobe After Effects.

McLin Digital Logo Animation

The 3d model was created and animated in Autodesk Maya. After creating the model, I imported it into Adobe After Effects and spruced it up with some secondary animations. The transition to the white logo, and the ending text animation was done in After Effects.

I created this animation using Autodesk Maya, Adobe After Effects and Trapcode Particular.

LearnWake Logo Animation

I modeled, animated and rendered the 3d logo in Autodesk Maya. From there, I brought the animation into Adobe After Effects, where I swapped out the 3d logo for the full-color vector version, and added the saw blade animation.  I then applied some color-corrections, motion blurs, and fake reflections. The final step was adding the particles using the Trapcode Particular plugin.  Sound design by Nick Murray.

Logo animation for WakeBoarding Magazine’s Wake Awards. Both Maya and After Effects were used.

Wake Awards Logo Animation

This logo animation is part of a package that I created for WakeBoarding Magazine’s “Wake Awards” award show. First, I took the vector logo they provided me and created and animated a 3d version in Autodesk Maya. After that, I imported the animation into Adobe After Effects, where I applied color-correction, and the light flickering effect. Finally, I added several layers of smoke/fog into the scene using Trapcode Particular. Sound design by Nick Murray.

The Book Wakeskate Intro

The Book Wakeskate Intro

This high-energy intro was created for The Book Wakeskate DVD series using After Effects and a lot of Photoshop.

The Book Wakeskate Intro

I created this intro for The Book Wakeskate DVD Series using Adobe After Effects and Photoshop. First off, the video was shot in standard definition, and the shots were taken from the video, and not specifically shot for the intro. This proved difficult to make an exciting intro, so I came up with this in-your-face concept using multiple 3D layers in After Effects. Each video clip was brought into Photoshop for masking (cropping). The next phase was bringing them into After Effects and animating them to go along with the music.
