‘Arrival at Earth – Compositing Pack’ contains everything you need to composite your own 3D models into this high quality 3K space scene, using your 3D program of choice.
This pack contains a 20 second 3K background plate, and also an After Effects project file with 3D camera and lights, so you can import your own 3D models into the scene and they will correctly react with the 3D space. A 3D Null Object is also included so you can replicate the movement of your object as it approaches the Earth, like in the preview video.
If you want to show a ship or object leaving Earth and heading out into the Solar System, then just point the ship in the opposite direction, so it looks like it’s travelling backwards, render out the video and then reverse the clip.
You’ll need After Effects CS6 or later to open the project file. No 3rd party plugins are required, although if you don’t have a dedicated 3D program, then Element 3D or Cinema 4D Lite will allow you to add your own 3D models. Otherwise you’ll be limited to using basic 3D layers within After Effects, such as text, images, footage, shapes etc.
If you are using something other than E3D or C4D Lite, then you’ll need to export the AE camera data to your 3D app. Basic instructions are included, but you’ll need to have at least a very basic understanding of importing and working with models in 3D space.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 3D MODELS SHOWN IN THE PREVIEW VIDEO ARE NOT INCLUDED. THEY ARE SHOWN JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT’S ACHIEVABLE USING THIS PACK.
2880×1620, 29.97fps, 20 seconds.
The music used in the preview video is not included…
