Advanced paper shattering effect [Video example]
on Nov 19, 2015 at 9:09:07 pm

Hi, I searched a lot but couldn't find anything that match what I needed.
I want to make a stylized transition ;
Here is what I have done so far :





I used TrapCode Form
What I want to do isn't really far from this video, I just want the left side (moving one) to be blown out, like if it was paper and something exploded near it, resulting in its exploding, dissolving, tearing.
I want to have my footage displaying on the paper shattering, like a real 3D shattering image. (That's why I used Form here, so I could distort my image like this)

If you have any Idea on how I could achieve that, I would love to hear it !
Thanks !

Well there is a beginning to everything

Thank's for the answer ! But Im looking for something that would be paper like, like tissue with real physics (that was I wanted to use Form, it's real 3D, so I dont want to simulate only a shattering, but a shattering with pieces interracting on each other, like the end of an old flag, if you see what I want to represent. The shatter effect doesn't allow me to achieve this :/

Without a physics engine nothing is going to interact. Form isn't really that much more "real" 3D than the shatter effect. To get actual interaction, you'll need something like cloth simulation in Cinema 4D or Blender or other 3D program.

The real problem is how to make pieces fly off. You can't do that in Form. You can make an image look like a flag in Form -- or even better in Mir -- but there's not going to be any pieces flying off, or any interaction.

If you don't want to use a 3D program, Shatter with a custom shatter map is one of your best options.

Trying it out, looks like this with (glass) Shatter and Mir.

Not for nothing, but I liked it.

Okay ! Thank's a lot, this is really close to what I wanted ! I'll use this.
Thanks for trying this out by the way !
Also, I dont mind using a 3D application (I have Cinema 4D installed and followed a lot of tuts) , but I dont know about having my footage on the actual "tearing paper" and being able to modify it later (the advantage of an unique software to make everything), maybe that the Cineware fonction in AE CC 2015 will allow me to do some of these things, i'll try to learn how to combine both of them.

I just have one last question : what exact term would you use to describe this effect? Because it's not shattering, but more like tearing / blowing, It would be usefull to find the appropriate tuts later :)

Thanks again !

Tearing, shredding, ripping, disintegrating?

I guess fracturing and shattering imply a more solid object.
