Title Sequence (TRON)
I have decided to recreate the title sequence to the film Tron i am first going to build a Light Cycle using Maya and it’s various tools such as the CV and EP curve tools and by also using a technique know as lofting these are all techniques i have never used before but i thought i may give it a go and throw myself in at the deep end as they say and so far am getting there very slowly. i have had to start again a few time to get the curve tools to do what i want them to do and the lofting technique is hard to use when trying to get the curves right in order for is to make a 3D object rather than a flat plane but i am sure i will get there in the end, I final did manage to get my CV curve tool to curve for the front tyre by adding a little lip at the top and bottom the curves this gave me more of a 3D shape to the front part of the bike.
For my final sequence of the film titles for my post production module at AUCB, i decided to create a very simple Tron Legacy title using the font from the film i downloaded from dafont.com and just simple made each individual letter come in from various directions and also made them each flicker. I then copied the composition and simply flipped it round to create a refection this was all very straight forward and simple. However the next task is to introduce my 3D light Cycle model i have been creating in Maya into After Effects this i do feel is where it will get a little bit tricky but once my light cycle has been put into After Effects i will then have the light cycle simply go across the screen followed by a streak of blue light. This will then be placed just after the short cinematic i am currently creating in Maya.
