It's not usually our day to share a tutorial but why not.
Halloween is here! Judging by our feeds, some of us had fun partying since it was during the Weekend even though the official day is today. Hope you’ll have some energy left to do some more Trick & Treating tonight.
For the occasion, we would love to feature this exclusive video made by François Fortin especially for Halloween. What a treat! François is based in Montreal, Canada (Like me) and he used a number of Adobe tools such as Photoshop, Fuse CC (Preview) and Illustrator to create a world filled with zombies, ghouls, and skeletons. Hope you will enjoy!
My background is photography so Photoshop and Lightroom were my main tools, then I started doing video with Final Cut and then animation with After Effects wich was Photoshop with a timeline. Then a couple years ago, I started to do some 3D work with Cinema 4D lite that came with After Effects. I did a few projects incorporating 3D with simple elements. Early this year, I had a video clip project where a wanted to have 3D characters. But doing character creation and animation was too complex for me. Then I discovered Adobe Fuse for character creation with the Mixamo website and it was a real life saver. The combination of Fuse, Mixamo, and Cinema 4D makes it possible for me. Before that, it wasn’t really conceivable to do that kind of work for me.
