not sure if anyone has spent any time with ubisoft's "watch dogs" game, but there's a certain effect in the operation of the skills menu that i'd love to understand (an example here, 0:50 up until abo

Graphic effect
by John Mark 1 month ago
Hello, If you watch the graphic effect from 57 seconds when 2 lines appear with flares, any idea on how it can be done within after effects http: www.youtube.com watch v=oi6y48YoGAo Thank you.
Re: Graphic effect
by Tudor "Ted" Jelescu 1 month ago
The lines with the flares can be built using Videocopilot's Optical Flare. Then you can animate the layers to bring in the lines as in the example you provided. Tudor "Ted" Jelescu Senior VFX Artist

Since it's a static shot it could just be flat art that was created to look in perspective and animated masks. However, with Free Form or FreeForm Pro you can bend a 2d plane in 3d space. Tudor "Ted"
