Butterfly Forest

I did't have a lot of time for doing my personal projects but final I found time to learn more expressions for After Effects and here is the result.
Butterflies have some expressions which control speed and angles of flapping wings. Rest is just mix of vectors and others footages.

3D Text Expression

Quite simple but useful expression for after effects which creates 3d text by offsetting layer every 1 unit in Z axes. It uses first layer index value which should be on top of stock.

Here is a expression which should be put in position parameter

offset = index -1;
p = thisComp.layer("your_layer_name");
[p.position[0],p.position[1],p.position[2]+offset];


After duplicating this basic layer the next will be offseted by 1 unit in space. Just copy around 15 to 20 layers and you will have 3D looking text in After Effects.

Interior Viz

I finshed this interior concept few minutes ago. Thats final render without post production in Photoshop. I found very useful references for furniture on IKEA home web page. Very helpful for modeling pipeline. I used only Final Gather method and Daylight system for lighting.

Pillows

I was working on interior visualization and I modeled some pillows. They were too simple so I added extra resolution and details in Zbrush by sculpting them. It was my first time in Zbrush but I'm happy because of final results.

Packshot Visualization

I tried some visualizations of dvd boxes which I modeled recently. I did compositing with ambient occlusion pass and color correction in Photoshop.

Packshot

My brand new design of cg blogger packshot. At first I designed covers in Photoshop. Than modeled dvd box, textured and rendered in 3ds Max 2010. Next I put everything into After Effects and composited together.
