How do you get smooth shadows on both pages and the table?

11.09.09

In the light options you can set shadow color, amount and diffusion. So i messed around with those values until i got a more realistic looking shadow. But you need to mkae sure in your light that you tell it to cast shadows.

you will have some problems if you decide to move your camera later. For example try to get a look from left side. To fix this- instead of switching from one layer to another when they're at 90degrees – i would suggest to put two layers close together with a few pixels between them. Basically making one- the front of the page – other-back of the page. This way you can move around your camera without a problem – of course as long as bender works (looks) right. I did a similar magazine animation (http://vimeo.com/9266113) using CC Page Turn. But your solution might even be better because Page Turn doesn't support Motion Blur and you either have to fake it with force motion blur (which is slooooow) or live without it.

Love the AE tutorials! Really helpful. Did you use an equation and a null object for the "floating" the camera does while its over the magazine? (where it floats back and forth instead of a still camera shot)

Yes that is a looping wiggle on the null that is parented to the camera.

11.09.09

That is done with a basic camera move into the page.

Hi, thanks for this helpful tutorial.
I have a problem with the "bending" part of it: changing the amount threshold on CC Bender effects makes my page "exit" from his own box, but in your video the influence of bending take place also on the box. I don't know if I've been clear.. sorry I'm not very good in english.
Thanks

thanks, this tutorial is apart of a show, that was weekly for 2 years, so the tutorial is just part of the content. I have considered re-releasing the tutorial segment only, for people like you who are here just for that content.
