How to: mutiple screen zoom out to form a word or object
on Jul 1, 2009 at 6:14:17 pm

Hey all,

I'm working on a project and I want to create a multiple flashing screens that zoom out and form an object or a word.


Well here is an example - check out the "TED" logo (right at the beginning of the clip.
http://www.ted.com/talks/amy_tan_on_creativity.html

I want to achieve that.

I'm sure its very popular effect - if some1 knows a nice tutorial it would be the best.

if not - I'll be happy to get some guidance to best approach it.
Since I'm going to use this concept a lot in my current project!

Thank you all!

Card Dance or Shatter precomped and time remapped to run in reverse.

I'm sorry but you are a bit too brief for me.

Can you elaborate?

I want that the final object to contain all kinds of screens I guess there is a camera movement there. but how do I make the screens multiply to form the final object?

thanks?

BTW example projects would be great!
:D

Without a story board, its difficult to visualize precisely what you want.

See this example using card dance and card wipe. It will get you started

Thank you very much for replying!

but according to this tutorial the images are still (that are part of a still image that blocks the final displayed movie.

I need the opposite.

I need a lot of VIDEO screens to zoom out (extremely) and create a word (like the "TED" in the example).

Also the final result should be a word and not just square screen.

I really appreciate the help -
I have my dead line coming soon! :D

there are several other tutorials on that same site that have an image that either comes together from a composite of smaller pieces or breaks up into smaller pieces... i would look at all of them, the technique for what you are after will be similar, you'll just need to insert your elements.

in tutorial 31, you would set your first step up in ae (rather than photoshop) and arange all your clips in a grid that will form your logo/text. after that the steps are pretty similar.

if you need to hae the images fly across the screen at the beginning, add a camera and animate it to move left to right (or right to left) before the logo/text resolves.

Stills can be replaced with video easily. Track matte or mask the animation of your video screens to the word you want.

Often in animation we work backward. In other words we create an animation that is the reverse of what we desire,then play it backwards.
eg: Desired animation: dust blowing to form a word.
Workflow: Apply shatter (or similar) to word to break it into pieces.
PreComp or render out, nest in comp and time reverse.

I've been concise.
You're in over your head.
Attempting to create the effect you are describing at your current level of experience is impossible without buy a prepackaged effects project. but you'd still need to understand how to make adjustments and elegance to suit your needs.
spend a few days watching tutorials and playing with the filters. You will either slap your head with the realization of how this works or you will smash you head against the wall in frustration.

I hope you, too, get to have the epiphany others have experienced, it's a good rush, but, man, I gotta tell you, After Effects is hard.

thanks for the advice bogiesan

I actually have experience with AE and I followed a lot of Video Copilot Projects used them and tweaked with success.

I have bunch of plugins and I play with it all the time.

My method usually is to find a Tutorial that is very similar to what I have in mind - and then tweak it to my needs.

thing is - when I open a project that I coulldn't create I very easily see how it works - and tweak it to my needs so that wont be a problem.

The other project I had - a nice cool guy created a very basic functional "structure" project and I created something beautiful out of it.

BUT - right now I'm on a tight schedule for the current project. I have a concept in my head and I couldn't find tutorial close enough to it.
And I dont have time to try to play with it.

Thats why asked for a recommended tutorial that is close to the "TED" example I gave @ first.

So if somebody has a closer tutorial it would be highly appreciated!

If wont get any I'll be happy to pay $$$ for a basic "structure" project.

If anybody wants to lift the glove PM me with your contact info and I'll call you.
