Hi all, I am looking to duplicate the Simpons main title scene for a class project. I would like to change the words in the cloud reveal scene. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrX2CAeECl0 ) But I have no idea how to go about that. I imigine i will have to recreate the cloud scene, but I still could use some pointers.
Paint several cloud layers in photoshop. Make sure they are large enough so you don't lose detail when you truckin past them.
For the camera moves, I'd use a camera and offset the clouds in 3d space. Then animate your camera pushing thru them, as you pan the clouds off to the side.
As David said, simply paint them on transparent layers in PS, then import them into AE. for animation, you could use 3D layers and move the camera, but in the series itself, the clouds really only drift to the sides to make a hole, so 2D animation of the position property is probably sufficient.
