Transform Fire Footage into 3D Shapes
This After Effects tutorial shows how to transform video footage into 3D shapes. The new Render options available in FreeForm Pro make this super-fast and easy. Create custom footage from generic stock.
Nancy Eperjesy (mettle.com) leads us through this tutorial, showing how to set up the file and transform footage into an array of icosahedron primitives (20-sided geometric solids with congruent faces). She adds a custom layout, overlapping rendered 3D footage with original fire footage, for a cool effect. She also shows us how to create 3D text that uses the fire footage as a reflection map, with ShapeShifter AE.
