Introducing the Centrica Carnivale

A 3-part video tutorial looking at advanced 3D animation in After Effects


3D or AE? How about 3D using AE!

At the beginning of 2006 I created a conference opener for Centrica that looked like it had been made with a 3D animation package, however practically everything was created using only After Effects.

This is part one of a three-part series that looks back at the Centrica Carnivale animation and demonstrates the techniques that were used to create the distinctive 3D look. While not intended to be a detailed step-by-step tutorial, the series looks at all aspects of the project- from the initial client brief through to final delivery and gives insight into the “real life” stages of an After Effects project.
