Hello!
I want to use this kind of transition techniques in this fx brands
http://medialuna.tv/index.htm#/portfolio/34/fxbrands_10_edit

Any ideas how to replicate this in AE?
A kind of card wipe?

Thanks for your reply
Michael

Hi all! I have reinstalled premiere cs3 and an upgrade of cs3, but now when I'm in the timeline I don't see video out in the external monitor, attached to the breakout box of Matrox RTX2...I have checked the preferences and project settings in premiere, but they seem ok.
Any ideas?
Thanks for your reply.

Michael

Yipes! There is a LOT more going on in that clip than just After Effects. In fact, most of it's done in a 3D application. For something like that, AE is NOT the software of choice, by any means!

ok, a 3D program can do that....but it seems to me that they are 2D plane, just like photo...

Take a look at AE Sweets - that will get you a good part of the way:

Hi Michael -

Since you have an older version of PPro, double check that Sweets will run on CS3 before you buy it, just to be on the safe side.

Maybe a driver update for the Matrox BoB?

It looks like that post is in your signature, so everytime you post and add your signature (which it does by default) you're essentially posting that question.

Sincerely,

Looks like lots of precomps with lights and shadows. I've done similar things in AE and it's very much possible to do there. I don't know why a 3D package was suggested for simple animation consisting of flat planes, but you can do this in AE for sure. Getting the look from slide A to slide B will help you figure out what sections to "cut out" and transition. Once you've got your slides set up where you want them, I'd precomp them before "cutting" anything (good procedural habit). Use the mask tool to slice up the precomps. Obviously, you'll need to duplicate the precomp as many times as you need slices. With AE CC the snapping tool comes in very handy to move the anchor point (Pan Behind tool) where you want each slice to pivot. Then go about rotating the slices to reveal the slide below it. I wouldn't focus on the motion being very technical as I would the style of how you think it should move. The example you gave shows very quick movements, like 5-7 frames (at 30fps) max for each slice. Some of it feels like a transformers transition, which is one way to do it, or at least, one style to think about maybe.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for your reply Jason, even I think it's not necessary a 3D application for that...like you said it's a lot of precomps and masks work
