Flying images form text advice need it
on Aug 3, 2010 at 8:40:42 am

Hi
I m stuck on a project and have no idea how one can achieve this.
I have quite a lot of images which need to fly by the camera and be clearly seen and they all form a logo at the end.
Like a mosaic. I think I seen something similar in an HSBC advert.
Any advice or a link to a tutorial is much appreciated.
I have seen the card tutorial from maxafter but what I need is a bit different as each picture needs to be seen.

Start by investigating the Card Dance effect.

Card Dance is the plugin you're after.
This tutorial can help:

It used to be on this website
http://maxafter1.blogspot.com/2008/12/card-dance-tutorial-coming-soon.html#...
but it seems that is not working right now- luckily I found the above link.

ayatoweb.com has several old tutorials that use card dance to resolve and image or logo. tutorials 31, 50 and 52 are just a few that you may want to look at.

as far as seeing more images or seeing them better before they come together, you'll just need to finesse that part of the animation a bit more. using a camera to move through the images may help. also, hand placing/animating several of them to pass through the frame exactly how you want them to as the other images all start falling into place may help get what you are after...

Hi thanks very much. The tutorial does work. But I still have a problem.
MacOsaix creates the mosaic fine but my source image is just text on a transparent background. I can not seem to find away to make the images fit within the text I mean the tiles.
Do I have to do this by hand? Is just three lines of text which I want filled with images (150 of them :()
Thanks
