For this project I wanted to create a looping animation and make it as perfect as possible even though I've never attempted to do so before. Being said this project was quite the experience of frustrations with me trying to learn how everything worked.
I wanted to keep this isolated to After Effects and I had recently bought Element 3D so why not use it? Right? Within Element 3D I made 2 spheres and colored them to the desired color with 45% reflectivity.
I then wanted to add more to the scene so I opened up my 3D program of choice, Blender3D, and made a simple particle cloud made up of icospheres.
Going back into Element 3D I added the shader for the particles and began the long tedious work of animating.
Lastly, my favorite part, I opened up FL Studios and worked some magic! VSTs & Plugins used: Serum, Sytrus, East West Silk
