Is there a Jack-n-box source AE animation or video clip?

May 27, 2012 3:18 PM

Working in CS3 PPRO, AE and Encore and looking for a Jack-n-box animation or vidoe file as an intro to a project.  I don't see a AE preset with expression for Jack-n-box. Google search has not produced an AE file or even a good Photoshop file of J-n-B.  Any suggestions?

    As always: Depends on what you are after, I guess. If it only needs to be 2D, creating a segment of the harmonica/ tube and then repeating it with Motion tile already takes care of that and it would then be pretty easy to attach a head or whatever. If done in a pre-comp, it could then be further bent in the parent comp with effects like Bezier Warp or CC Bend... Of course there's a million other ways. Just try.

    That's a very specific, and probably pretty uncommom, request.  Your best bet is to trawl the stock video sites like istockphoto, pond5 etc, for possibilities. 

     

    Personally, I'd go to my local toy store, buy a jack-in-the-box, and shoot some video of it opening.

    Andrew, this is always my FAVORITE way of tackling weird simulations: shoot a realword version and apply filters to the video.
