Hello.

I am a novice/hobbyist.I have been into learning graphics for the past year.Using Photoshop,After Effects and now recently Cin4d.

I am curious to know what application may have created this.
It appears to be an endless zoom.

I am interested in the endless zoom effect and graphical shapes.What application,function,technique, so as to maybe apply/duplicate to any other effects.








I have After Effects CS4, and am currently exploring the Shapes/animations functions.It is supposed to have the abilities of Illustrator which I have no previous experience with.

Welcome to the world of fractals! You can get a start on the capabilities of fractals here:

I don't know whether AE was used to create the clip, but it's a strong possibility. The endless zoom you see is a feature of fractals - as you zoom in on them the details and patterns appear to be endless, since there is no apparent end to the level of detail. Someone who understands fractals better than me may want to weigh in here with a technical explanation.

If you're at all interested in the more mathematically inclined artists such as M.C. Escher, you'll find that fractals play a part in the designs. Here's a site that may well have WAY more than you want to know, but it's pretty cool to browse through the differenty types of fractals:

As it happens, Benoit Mandelbrot just passed away last week.

Thanks for that information, Mark -

Whether we use fractals or not, we owe a great debt to Mandelbrot, who discovered organization in natural forms which had been formerly deemed as having no organized structure. The news of his death is being reported all over the world - here's what the Washington Post says:
