3 questions about a motion graphics clip
on Jun 20, 2007 at 5:34:59 pm

For my study in media and design I have to recreate motion graphics. I choose this clip:
motion graph bij 512. There are three things in this clip that I don't really understand:
1 How can I colorize a 3d stroke with a gradient?
2 With which effect is the first light bulb created.
3 How is the shine in the middle of the clip created. Did 512 use trapcode shine?

Thanks in advance!

pictures of flares with there luminosity cranked, their blend mode set to add, throw in some rotation and you get that nice white light
the strokes arnt actually colourized, he just used a focusing technique that andrew kramer ALWAYS uses.

basically he creates a solid, and then draws an elliptical mask in the centre, then feathers the edges to make this gradient focus. Blend, color and tweak as needed.

i have no clue which lightbulb your referring to

all i know is that it looks like knolls light factor was used

also somewhere on creative cow there are tutorials for the birds, and for those flowers in the center. Nothing TOO tricky.

Thank's for your help! The flowers and birds aren't any problem at all. That's the most easy part ;) I'm not really shure on what you mean by "pictures of flares".... Can you be more specific?
The "lightbulb" I'm refering to, is the light effect at the beginning of the clip.
