I’n a galaxy, far, far away…
I recently aquired a new plugin for After Affects called Particular. This allows for much more creativity with particles and with this i created a Star Wars Hyperspace jump and the Next Gen text.
I used a particle emitter to emit particles randomly around a box, which created stars. added another emitter to each of these stars meant that I can make hundreds of more particles, creating ab beam effect. I added a blue tinge similar to that of star wars and tinkered until it matched the style of the 1970’s star wars. The end product is something i’m proud off, and i am hopefully going to add sound effects, and change the text to be more Star Wars than what it is now.
I’m also thinking about using this style for the other VFX project set by Pete. Using other actors name in the sequence.
