True Detective Main Title Sequence | FreeForm Pro
The Devil is in the Details. Mettle FreeForm Pro is used throughout the True Detective Main Titles to distort the images, and put some of the magic into the sequence. FreeForm Pro offers three ways to distort your layer in After Effects, through Mesh Warp, Displacement Mapping and Render Primitives. It gives unprecedented control in layer deformation. Thanks to Breeder and Chris Morris, for their awesome work. Download a free demo of FreeForm Pro.
FreeForm Pro: Fire footage is applied as a displacement map on the image of the main character’s face to make it “crumple” underneath the flames.
