more AE fun...

Polygon from Martin Hjelholt Brun Pedersen on Vimeo.

Still trying to improve my After Effects skills - so did yet another video copilot tutorial, pretty much a paint by the numbers kind of thing - but still made some changes to make it - all mine (which coincidentally is the title of a great song by Portishead)
A fun little Sunday afternoon project, and I am pretty pleased with how it turned out, although as I look at it now maybe the textures on the background could be turned down just a tad.

XGen Topology Art

I found this really neat tutorial on creating topological art using Maya and XGen on Youtube at the Maya Learning Channel (
At first Maya naturally resisted, refusing to do as she was told, saving in different formats than expected, making it impossible for me to make it work. Then after putting the project aside for a couple of days - without any just started working.
So anyway this is the first attempt on creating topological art with xgen - would be fun doing something a bit more advanced - maybe animating the camera, but as it is a bit heavy handed I decided to keep it relative simple to begin with.
Comped and music added using After Effects.
