Expendables 2 Title Sequence Tutorial Using After Effects CS6 ShapeShifter AE


Here's a cool tutorial for you - "The Expendables 2" Title Sequence.

Nancy at Mettle gives a quick rundown on how to create this parody of "The Expendables 2" film title sequence, using CS6 Master Collection (After Effects + Photoshop) and Mettle's ShapeShifter AE plug-in.
You'll handle guns, knives, and over 10 million polygons, all within safe confines of After Effects.

AE Project Giveaway #3

Hey good folks,

This isn't a full project.
it's an AE 3D (duplicated layers) iPhone 3 and iPhone 4. i use it a lot in many of my projects.

The iPhone, the shadows and the reflection are all separate objects and as such they are easy to manipulate. the iPhone screen is procedural, which means that everything you change in the screen comp will show in the main iPhone comp on the iPhone and it's reflection.
it renders very fast - so have fun with it and leave a comment or a link if you do anything cool with it.

AE Project Giveaway #2

Hey good folks,

Giveaway #2 is here.

this is my take on the opening sequence for T.V series "13".
the original one was created with 3D software no doubt, but i thought that i can get a smiler result with After effects. and I'm pretty happy with the result i got.

What do you think of it?

New Tutorial - Coming Soon

Hey good folks,

I'm working on a new interesting tutorial that will involve tracking with Mamoworld's extremely easy to use Mochaimport+ script.
and placing a 3D horrible looking burn scar on the cheek of a very nice looking lady that has done me absolutely nothing wrong, using Mettle's plugin FreeForm Pro.

Here's a quick peek

A Rigged Realistic Puppet Free Giveaway


Remember that Character Animation series posted on Atuts+?
well now you can get that puppet all rigged for free over at the Mettle web site.
 Dan was kind enough to put together a file based on his AE Tuts tutorial series. It is fully rigged and ready to go.
There are 2 files available for free download. one for use with FreeForm V2 and the other one for use with FreeForm Pro.
They were created in CS5.5 but will work just as well in CS6.
