A client who wanted to slag their opponent; I created this pinball-themed spot in a (solid) week using After Effects. Am I proud? Yep. Do I want to improve something in every shot? You bet.
Triumphs: adding the small amounts of 3D (and this in the days before Trapcode’s Form), and faking the lens blur to lessen the render time.
Challenges: the 3D preset ‘Graymachine’ does not want to play nice with After Effects, and sometimes will simply not respect camera perspective. Some sweet talking was involved.
