ZERO-DAY by beeple

ZERO-DAY from beeple on Vimeo.

An awesome, high-paced, loud, techno/machine/robot animation by beeple (Mike Winkelman) with a warning message about cyber-warfare.

I specially love how the music drives the animation and the amazing finish on both animation and render.

Winkelman notes: "Trapcode Form worked great in the middle part to make the screens all glitchy as well as some ambient dust throughout."

Tove Styrke music video by Slobodan Zivic

The super cool and talented Swedish artist Tove Styrke has a music video for the awesome track "Even If I'm Loud It Doesn't Mean I'm Talking to You" directed by Slobodan Zivic that uses Trapcode Mir to create beautiful geometric patterns. Also, check out the sweet 303 that solos at 2:10 -- just lovely.

FITC Tokyo 2015 Titles

Trapcode Form was used in these amazing titles for the FITC Tokyo 2015 conference. Lots of tools and tricks are used of course, and Form plays perhaps a small role here but a good example of non-obvious and creative use of Form. Read more about the making of in this great Motionographer article.

Nicolas notes here in the comments "We actually used FORM quite a bit in this. Most of the textures of the glitch were generated with form."

These titles feel fresh, exciting, new and yet relatable. The music is great too. It's pretty much a perfect work in my opinion. Enjoy! And congrats to the makers!

Rainfall - My Panda Shall Fly - Yoshihide Sodeoka

Yoshihide Sodeoka has made a colorful, playful and quite psychedelic music video for My Pands Shall Fly's beautiful track "Rainfall".

Yoshihide used "tons of Particular, some Form, Starglow and Echospace" when making the video.

Facing a tight three-week production deadline for the project, machenschaft decided to ditch the 3D apps and use GPU-based Trapcode Mir in AE to create their awesome graphics.

I asked Damir Zrno why they used Mir for this project, how it was used and what he thought of it. "First of all I was curious about Mir and wanted to give it a try. The short timeframe was the reason why 3D was not an option. I totally enjoyed the speed of Mir. There were mostly two kinds of Mir combined with a light setup; one was using an amplitude map (Fractal Noise) and the other without the map. After a couple of trial-and-error runs we had what we wanted. Pulling on some values changed every shot pretty fast into a new sculptures. 3000x800 vertices were used. Every extension was done with Mir, besides the packshot. Production was three weeks not including shooting in India."
