Our first After Effects tutorial!

We've created our first tutorial on camera fly throughs, a signature move used by me, Miren... I love helicopter shots, there pretty epic! I've spent quite some time perfecting them. This tutorial is quite long, I cover all the basic level knowledge and then I cover all the intermediate level. However if I was to cover the advance aspects of light wrap and other nifty things the tutorial would probably be 2 hours long! :|

 

Tell us what you think of the tutorial, pros and cons. There will be more to come so subscribe on YouTube!

So, NASA discovered what could be the birth of a black hole. I won't go into detail talking about it because you can read it all here:

I love NASA and all things space related... so I- OH hey wait a second, how ironic I'm saying this and posting this now right after releasing a film called Astronut about someone going to space. Coincidental marketing, brilliant. Anyway, I really loved the image NASA released, and I found the different 'passes' that the image was formed with here:

It was made with various xrays and radio data to create each individual layer of the image. It looked pretty... so I wanted to create my own version of the image! I created individual compositions in After Effects for each layer of the image (Radio data, Xray, Chandra Xray & Optical View). Each composition is comprised of multiple layers of Trapcode Form. In total there are 59 layers of Trapcode Form!! Watch it below:
