Animating Wall-E Style LED Eyes In 3D Studio Max & After Effects

Scroll to top
Read Time: 1 min

In this tutorial you will learn how to create, animate and render LED style eyes for characters like robots or even some products while creating presentations. In most of the cases character animation and especially facial animation is easier since there is actual geometry representing parts of the face, but how do you work with characters that have a different design or no mesh to manipulate for animation?

Well in this tutorial you will discover that process in no time. We will go through the theoretical part and explain why and where you could use this technique and what are the benefits of the process. We start by setting up the 3d scene, jumping in to After Effects, setting up the project there and then head back to 3ds Max for the final animation and rendering.
