Howdy All,

I made this animated Christmas card with some friends and wanted to share it here. Its pretty much all LW. My buddy is a C4D guy and he contributed with the trees and the text on the strings at the end.

Hope you've all had a great December no matter what holidays are or aren't celebrated. Happy New Year too!

I like it! Seems somewhat abstract, but a very good idea. I like the animals of the paper:)

Really really nice job on that! Like was aid above - I have no idea really how you did the stuff inside the globe - but it looked great!

Thanks all! The ball is my little trick that I discovered by chance then had to learn how to control (which was tedious). I could do a tutorial, but gosh... its almost my little secret.

I'll give a hint: Think volumetric... but not. ;). And you could only do this with VPR (or fprime. It won't preview in OGL. There might be some giveaways in the screen grabs on flickr.

Everything else is standard stuff but if there were any questions I'd be happy to explain.

That is a beautiful piece of work Stephen. I could see that idea being used in a Xmas ad for a big department store.
