For all you animators who asked about how we did some of the visual effects in the award-winning “Red Lion” video, here are a few examples and free After Effects project files for you to experiment with. We used the awesome Mettle 3D plugins Mantra VR, FLUX, FreeForm Pro, and ShapeShifter AE for Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro in order to create the surreal elements of “Red Lion”. We made the “Metallia” 3D model with Adobe Fuse and animated her on Adobe Mixamo before importing into Photoshop and later AE.
Tima Vlasto, did the VFX for “Red Lion” and compiled these AE project files for you to use freely. She said it would be very cool if you found these helpful to go and watch “Red Lion” on YouTube or stream the “Metallia” album on Spotify, or follow Oh. on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and connect with us.
