In this tutorial we'll create a highly detailed human iris using the FreeForm pro plugin by Mettle.
In the first part we'll focus on building the extremely detailed depth and color maps, building the general shape, placing it in space and preparing it for animation.
In the second part, we'll focus on animating the camera and the 3D shape itself as well as different parts and elements of the depth and color maps. We'll create the sclera with its own depth, color and animated reflection map. And finally add the stars background and DOF.
FreeForm PRO is available here.
