Animated Xmas card

A 3d animated christmas card produced for aba, for their client the Callcredit Information Group.
The spinning present boxes were modeled in 3d Studio Max and textured and lit with Vray using a HDRI image to get the nice reflections in the silver bows and ribbon. A single render of a red box and silver box were saved out with alpha channels to enable compositing in After Effects. In After Effects I imported a photoshop composition enabling each layer to be animated, I then brought in my targa sequences of the spinning presents. The presents were animated as separate compositions and all the special effects added as each spins and bursts to reveal the letter beneath. The snow is simply a ‘snow’ filter, but hey, it is Christmas !
