In part 2 of this tutorial, we take our 3D render into After Effects to composite and finish the scene. I show you how to use glow, curves, blurs, and levels to color correct the scene and add some shine. I also show you how to make a fun stripe animation using Precomps and a Track Matte.
In this tutorial, I show you how to make the ice cube bumpers that have been popular on the NBC’s presentation of the olympics. I show you how to build an ice cube using material displacement, refraction, transparency, reflection, and specular highlights. I also cut out a photo of a snowboarder to add to the ice cube logo. Then, we animate the rotation of the ice cube and prepare it for After Effects where we will add the rest of the elements for the final piece.
