I wanted to test the audio capabilities of Form, so I played around a bit and came up with this thing.
Itīs really a rewarding way to animate, as you get results youīd never get if you were to keyframe it yourself.

Anyways, tell me what you think.

Dope. How'd you do the sphere morph towards the end? Polar coordinates?

The particle effects in the TV2 Promo are really nice also.

I like what you've done with the rendering quite a lot, but I think the piece suffers from a quality in most early audio/video experiments... namely that it's temporally noisy. It's like watching a play where everybody says all of their lines at the same time. I think you would instantly increase the watchability of it if you were to isolate and narrow your audio data.

Great work.

Thank you for your kind words.

Yeah, I used CC Lens with some Knoll Lightfactory to get the sphere look.

As far as the audio goes I agree 100%. But I have a weird taste in music, so I actually listen to stuff like this.

I really like the tone of the colour palette and you got a really nice look to the particles - is it the cloudlet / smokelet or custom?

very cool.

I agree about the audio, in that some frenetic moments could be punctuated by moments where the particles moves a lil more
purposefully, and with a lil less noise.

Also, is the inner shading handled by form, or some other post method?


nice work.

My estimated guess would be smokelet, since that's the only particle type that has self-shadowing.

Nice work, and you used zero keyframes on this? Besides on the mosaic filters and such.

damn that is impressive. A++ to you. You have inspired me to experiment with form tomorrow and see if I can get something nice going on.

that's great! nice one.

no keyframes? that's probably why it looks so 'noisy' eh?

Yeah, itīs a smokelet particle and there are a couple of keyframes here and there. I also blended several instances of Form to get it to react the way I wanted.
