Meteor Crash

Over 1 year later... it has taken me this long to learn Maya and specifically learn FX animation.  This specific project took me a total of 2 months from beginning to end to complete.  I learned a lot along the way, realizing there is much to do to achieve the correct look.  Working with Matchmover, Photoshop, After Effects, and Maya, one small 3 second clip takes a lot of research, fun, and hard work (not necessarily in that order.)

I posted my works in progress.

          Trying to establish the timing of the meteors

         Working on the overburn trails

         Working on the fiery meteor explosion

         Looks good but I need to add more tension

         Need to add one more explosion
         Need to add the final details in After Effects
