I recently had the pleasure to do a tutorial for AETuts+ once again. This time, we will be taking a look at how to build this 3D transforming text animation using Mettle’s ShapeShifter plugin. We will also be enhancing some of the elements using 3rd party plugins such as Trapcode Shine (CC Light Burst alternative), Frischluft’s Out of Focus (Lens Blur alternative), and RE:Vision RSMB (CC Force Motion Blur alternative).
We are first going to be looking at how to setup the generic base animation, texture and light it, create a basic camera rig, and finally apply some enhancements and color color correction. This tutorial is full of techniques and goodness!
For letterboxing, you can use Video Copilot’s Aspect Ratio preset
I love doing these kinds of full length tutorials as it really shows how a basic full animation gets created. You get to see everything from a blank composition to the final render. Hopefully you guys learned something in the tutorial.
If you guys have any further questions, leave comments down below and I’ll be sure to get to them as soon as I can. Feedback would also be welcomed too!
