A glitch in the metaverse with Red Giant


Chad Perkins. Senior Trainer at Maxon

In this session, we will create a 3D metaverse scene in After Effects by sending camera tracking data from After Effects to Cinema, bringing in a 3D character from Cinema 4D, turning it into a hologram, reflecting all of that into a live action plate, and compositing it all together. In the process, we’ll look at multiple ways to create 3D objects using Cineware and Trapcode Form, we’ll create disruptions in those particles using a clip from a vintage martial arts movie (Ninja Death III, if you’re curious), quickly create scrolling lines of code using plugins from Red Giant Universe, create and track a procedural reflection using tools from the VFX Suite, and composite it all together using Supercomp.
