Auto Orientation Character Creation

This is the inspiration for this project.

I was looking around on motion served and came across the project Cinematics, by Pier Paolo. A very unique and simplistic style for iconic movie characters, but what stuck out to me was his flat rotating character with 3D elements. I assumed he the project was created in After Effects so I set out to see if I could break the project down and recreate it.

I needed some expressions for the project, so I jumped over to motion script and everyone dies films to get an expression for orientation for one axis and also some expressions for rigging up a character in After Effects. The character is a bit of a work in progress, but there will be more to come!

Creating a Double Sided Plane in AE

I was recently checking out one of my favorite forums cgsociety.org and one of the users had a question about how to create a double-sided plane in After Effects. It was one of the first things I wanted to do when I first started in After Effects and thought it would make for a fun video.
