Any idea on how i'd achieve this pattern/texture?

REFERENCE:


from about 1:55" - 2:00"

I know i'd start by building a vector triangle grid.. further that im kind of stumped..I like the way the triangles interact and realistically illuminate.. any pointers would be much appreciated! thanks in advance!

The player does not display the time and there's a lot of triangles in this clip- can you be more specific? Is it the "diamond" like effect or something else?

Hey! thanks so much for the reply.. i didn't realize the video would embed itself.. :o/

its kind of a triangle kaleidoscope section.. if you right click on the video and "watch on vimeo" then use the timecode 1:55 to 2:00.. sorry to be a pain.. my triangle related vocab is a little limited...

Thanks again for the quick response!

Luke

With what you have right now in AE it will be hard- Eddy had some good ideas. I would ad distortion maps- match the top layer of triangles creating a black and white image of the same triangles and use that as a distortion map on another layer with colored triangles. On top you would have the initial triangles layer composited with Add or Screen mode.
With the new FreeForm Pro plugin from mettle you may be able to displace a triangle image in 3d, and then add a reflection map with another triangle image to create the look you're after.

Thanks so much for the advice Tudor!

i think i'll give C4D a go on this one..

cheers!

To me that looks like some 3D work, which is what BUCK usually does. I'd say we're looking through a rotating geodesic dome with some heavy refraction pink and green image. I could be totally off, that's just my best guess.

How to do this in AE...tricky tricky...
Obviously you'd have to fake it. I'd say start by making a triangle pattern, then use it as a mask for different colored objects at different positions and scales. Move everything around. Then add starglow. Lots of starglow.

Thanks for you feed back! i think im going to try my luck in C4D.. Cheers!

That's a 3D app and composition, don't even try to do that within AE.

Build a triagle grid, push some vertices backwards...put some reflective texture...and reflect something... If you don't know how to do this - but you have the chance - it would still be a lot faster to learn than to get close to that in AE.

Thanks for the advice Cassius,

I'm going to give it a shot in C4D..

Cheers!
