Here is the 3d paper airplane I made. Several post have requested help with making one. I will link the zip file with all of the needed files for the AEP project. If there is any interest in a step by step tutorial on how i basically did it let me know and I will put one together.



















Here is the file

I have not animated it flying. However. Everything is parented to a 3D null. If you move or scale or rotate the null, the plane follows. Plus the folds in the plane are controlled by expressions. the first fold needs to be finished before the 2nd and so forth. All you do to manipulate the paper is keyframe the 4 expressions on the control layer.

That is great - I opened the project and understand what's going on, but would love to have at least a short narrative as to how you approached it. This type of effect can always be useful (thinking of packages being wrapped, letters folded for mailing, etc...).

Thanks for sharing!

Paper airplanes are the coolest, and this one won't get me sent to the Principal's Office.

Thank you.

I'm using After Effects 7.0, and I'm having some trouble with this project. Whenever a fold occurs, the letters underneath will flicker through and then remain on top instead of being hidden by the folds like in the video. I've tried to play around with the expression to fix it, but I'm still trying to learn and understand expressions and I can't figure out how to fix it so that the folds stay on top. I'm pretty sure its a Z-position issue, but I may be wrong.

Also, if Mr. Hooton or anyone else would be willing to provide a step-by-step tutorial on this project, I would be very interested, as I'm sure I could learn a lot about expression controls by understanding how this project was created.

I know this is a old posted but I was hoping that someone would still have this folding Airplane zip laying around. I thought I had saved a copy of it years ago but I cant seem to find it. If by any chance some one had this zip file could they posted it.
Thanks
