    Hey all,

    I'm not just trolling for hits. I'd like to hear some feedback on the tune and the video. Mostly the video, it was a kind of proof of concept thing. It's pretty bare bones as I'm only just getting into the animation side of things. I like the basic silhouetted birds thing but i think it should have more added to it. It's not for this tune but I'd like to make something that'd be more interesting to watch, along the same kind of theme. Any ideas hit me up here. Oh and if you have any tunes you'd like a video for let me know too.

    Thanks

    To be completely honest with ya, I think both the music and the video sucks. I mean the grass texture and the sky texture are plain and boring as hell, the video in the telly is kinda funny but the telly itself is downright ugly, find new textures for it with some more realism at least add some drop shadow so it doesn't look so flat.

    thanks, I think you are dead on. I'm trying to collect a list of mistakes not to make later. Do you like the birds, i know its repetitive but the silhouetted style?

    yeah the bird silhouette thing is cool, maybe mirror some of them and when you found a nice grass texture lay out a light to dark gradient over it to create "depth" maybe even blur it gradually from the bottom to the top.

    yeah, i'm holding on to the silhouette thing, i like it. I made that grass texture so its not the may west. It really does look very flat, trying to bring the depth out would be good. My main problem is i'm not very good at working in 3D in after effects. I think you are meant to use fake lights and stuff to bring out the depth. Looks like more tuts for me :(

    haha, i'll let her know. She's a looper, in the best possible way. It really is repetitive. I like the intro, taking into account the bad depth, textures as mentioned. Nothing really happens. Some kind of story maybe?
