Rotating After Effects Globe

Rotating globes and spheres have become a recurring element in the world of motion graphics, whether we are showing the connectivity of a device, the range of a device or transporting goods across the world. In this tutorial, check out how to create a globe using after effects and a couple effects to add some roundness to your globe and also how to add in some location trackers.

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!

Extending an Image Sequence in After Effects

Extending an image sequence is something that can be useful when needing to add some time to shots if needed, in this video you can see how to extend image sequences in after effects using time remapping. You can use this technique with render passes from various 3D programs as well.
