I fairly new to After Effects CS5, and my boss ask me a question I couldn't figure out! I have attached two promo videos that I wanted to know if they were created solely in After Effects CS5, and maybe it a mix of cameras and/or other software. The first video is the end of a Memphis Beat Promo in which I wanted to created something similar to that for our industry below:
How was the end of this Memphis Beat video created?
How was the end of this Rizzoli & Isles video created?
Thanks for your help!
Yes, you can do this in After Effects. Both of these look like they were made by cutting a still frame into 3D layers, distributing them in 3D space, and animating a camera through. Even the instance of the camera rotation is faked with a whip pan to a separate 3D scene.
Here's a page with an overview of 3D layers, which includes links to some tutorials.
