Some of our most beloved and talented pals jumped on board to animate some shots, so we threw in a few directions, but we just let them do their thing.
And they killed it. Some bold mofos even animated on 6s. The nerve!
By this time we knew comp was going to be heavy, with lots of layers, glow, defocus, gradients, and all the usual cosmic stuff. So we had to carefully plan the workflow.
One tricky part was the orb morphing into its angry mood.
The base texture was animated using After Effects, then imported into Animate, where frame-by-frame adjustments were made. Those adjustments were then reimported into After Effects.
Hope you all enjoy and get mesmerized by Tartarus.
We recommend watching it on a bigger screen.
