Emitting Varied Particles with Trapcode Particular

We all love Trapcode Particular! But one thing it cannot do natively is emit multiple different particles through a single emitter. Imagination Creations shows you a great flexible work around to emit any number of different particles with just one emitter! Check out the video for a detailed tutorial with many tweaks and settings, but for those who want the shorthand, below is a quick step by step walk through.

My Love Hate Relationship with Dynamic Link

When I'm not out filming or meeting with clients, it is a safe bet that I'm in my office editing. That means I'm switching back and forth between Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro. (Not to mention some related Photoshop and Illustrator files as well as the odd Google Doc.) For someone who spends so much time working with files in After Effects and Premiere Pro, a way to make the two work together is a highly valuable tool.

The Science of Giving

The Science of Giving

There is nothing more rewarding then being able to put your skills toward helping a charity. Produced for Life Vest Inside, The Science of Giving is an animated explainer video that scientifically proves to the world why it is good to give!

Inspired by 'Designed by Apple', completing this project was lots of fun, but it didn't come without its share of challenges. Telling a story with a series of dots takes much imagination and creativity. On the technical side, a lot of thought went into how to animate the various scenes to make the video feel natural and consistent.

Green Screen Billboard Compositing

Augmented reality is a technology where a user sees a static image come to life by looking at it through their phone or other enabled device. The challenge presented to me by my client was to simulate this technology, with out having to rent a city billboard. This was a fun project to tackle as it covered a number of different concepts and effects. Due to this, the tutorial is a bit long, but I think you will learn a lot!
