One of the things I’m most grateful for in this world is people who inspire me. Andrew Kramer of Video Copilot is one of these people. His creativity, sense of humor, and ability to clearly convey complex ideas makes Andrew a joy to learn from. Thank you, my friend! Today’s animation is a compilation of jet flybys created using models from the Video Copilot Jetstrike 3D model pack, still aerial photos, and Trapcode Particular particle effects. As I discovered during the process, a variety of fascinating techniques are necessary to convincingly transform a 3D model of a jet into something that looks like a real plane in flight. If you’re interested in learning any of these techniques, I encourage you to check out Andrew’s Flight School training page.
