Maltannon has put out the latest episode on Red Giant TV. Create a slick push pin toy effect as seen in the Radiohead ‘House of Cards’ video. This tutorial shows you how to combine regular footage with Trapcode’s popular Form plug-in to create an eye-popping 3D effect.
There is new cross-platform version of the CustomEffects Installer available. Now you can easily install custom expression-based presets on both Windows and Mac. Make sure to check this new installer out, and remember to download some of the amazing CustomEffects that can be found in the tutorial articles. Best example would be all time famous 3DShapeExtruder for making any Shape Layer a 3D object.
If you are a youngster born in the age of The Matrix, than you probably never heard of a great movie Tron. My guess is that actually you might have but you didn’t realize it. This movie is 26 years old and has amazing special effects, but the best thing is the story itself. The movie however was a disaster. In my option it was going far in the future and most people just didn’t understand it, however on an abstract level it makes perfect sense.
If you want to learn more about the movie check all the info on Wikipedia.
Anyway… My point is: if you haven’t seen it yet, than you should. If you did, maybe it’s time to watch it again? Here’s a great fan-film that inspired me to write this post. Hope you’ll enjoy it.
Heres the original movie scene.
