Looking Skywards with Got Aerial LLC

Just finished a motion graphics project for rc aerial photography & cinematography company Got Aerial last week. This was my first project working with the Element 3D plugin for After Effects from VideoCopilot.

First impressions working with the plugin are definitely promising. The biggest issues I ran into depend on what 3d tracker you employ to work with Element. I had some solid tracks with the 3D Camera Tracker plugin that ships with AE CS6, but, too often, the shots proved to be a little too much for the tracker to deliver anything solid due to the constant changes in perspective. Ultimately, I relied on The Foundry’s CameraTracker for most of the shots with very reliable results. The reel title mountain ridge flyover, however, proved to be too much for either the 3D Camera Tracker or the Foundry CameraTracker. For this particular case, I found the best results with PfTrack which provided me with a rock-solid track that I was able to use for both the Element 3D Text and the main title “The Art of Flying” which I created in Cinema 4D. Originally, I had created the title with the Element plugin, but, due to some strange artifacting, I switched to C4D to solve the issue. Overall, it was a fun and challenging project and an excellent opportunity to log my first project run with Element & AE CS6!

Check out the final results below. All footage by Got Aerial LLC and music by Krewella.

Really interesting video

I came across this animated video about a week ago and thought I’d share it. Really well done piece for a good cause!


Dental Marketing

This intro is from a massive project that I completed in late September. The project was for NPI’s continuing dental education webinar series – Dental Marketing Summit Series – hosted on Dentaltown. The project consisted of a little over 7 hours of greenscreen footage that I edited down into 7 hour long episodes. Each episode had it’s own custom intro and outro and a myriad of slides in between. All slides and intros were written by co-host Mark Dilatush and I provided the design & animation. This is the opener for the first episode.

Professor Griff Intro

This is a quick motion graphics intro that I made back in February for Professor Griff’s presentation at ETSU during Black History Month. No big frills just some Photoshop & After Effects. I’ll post a link to the whole presentation here when I finish uprezing the presentation (it was originally SD & HD).
