VFX – Understanding 3D Space


Catching up on posts, this is only a short one though. 2 weeks ago in Pete’s VFX lesson we built a box in 3D space in after effects. It was really quite simple to make, making a 500×500 pixel square and view it from the ‘Custom View 1’ camera. Then I made the box by duplicating that square, changing the colour and rotating the square and snapping each of the boxes together, after that I added two lights into the scene to make it look more presentable.

Then putting all of the squares into a Null object and then added that Null into a new one, this allowed me to rotate it around a central pivot point instead of where the original was made.
