If you have the bandwidth, watch the hi-res version – you’ll be able to see all of the subtle details. The HD version is now available on Vimeo – Woohoo!
This animation was shown in public for the first time at Flash on the Beach. Although I was only there for the first day, FOTB again sets the highest standard of excellence when it comes to creative conferences and I sincerely appreciate all of the support from John and everyone at FOTB. I also appreciate all of the people that showed up for my show-n-tell session – I hope it was relevant to their interests.
This video includes a behind the scenes view of what went into the creation of the animation. Not included in this video is the Audio amplitude analysis which was done in After Effects via a SWF Palette, exported and applied to the camera, particles and jellyfish via code in Maya. Stay tuned and I’ll have a lot more info on Adobe SwitchBoard, PatchPanel and more soon.
