Dissolve Into Crows - After Effects & 3dsMax

User avatarDecember 9, 2012 by Surfaced Studio

In preparation of the 3d integration VFX tutorials I will be releasing soon, I created a dissolve into crows effect together with Fables In Fashion. Enjoy

Dissolve Into Crows VFX Short Film & Breakdown - After Effects & 3dsMax

The effect was created by compositing real live footage with a swarm of crow particles generated in 3dsMax.

I created a virtual 3D scene in 3dsMax, used pFlow to simulate a swarm of crows exploding out of Celina and rendered diffuse, alpha and depth layers using vRay. I then composited the rendered footage in After Effects to create the final effect

The full tutorial as well as an entire 3D integration VFX mini series for YouTube are in the works and will hopefully be online soon!
