This is my first try at AfterEffects, trying to give life to fishing in the city a bit. Sadly it runs really, really slowly on my 512MB laptop...

ps. you'd need to reload/reenter this page (by pressing enter to your address bar when nothing is highlighted) to see the zoom out bit in the beginning.

[edit]hello guys, sorry for the popping up again in your watchbox, i have added some music, and changed the movie a bit. music is by =artoxicated done for my website :)

geckokid: it's highly addictive to look at

You're right o.o

You know one of those moments where people go oooh and aaah... or those where they're like "Check it out..." all in awe and stuff?

This makes me do that... >.>

Oh wow.... that's eerily beautiful. Love the jagged lights. Wish the fish would do a bit more than just bob around though. :D

My laptop played it remarkably well, I didn't even need to refresh in order to see the zoom out bit.

I hearteth the silver and white.

this is just plain cool it's very neat. The only thing I would point out and bear in mind I'm not 100% on this but I am pretty sure that isn't what the surface of a body of water looks like from below. Again I haven't been swimming in a long time ^^ Otherwise very very cool. It would make an awesome screensaver

Saw it and thought it was pretty awesome. I wish it would last longer, though. And I wish the fish would move around a bit more.

Oh well.

Still awesome.

I feel a bit sea sick after watching that for a while, nice job though. I like the fish sort of bobbing about in the corner seperate to the rest of it.

That's bloody good work mate! You've used nice techniques to animate the water, and the depth you've achieved by offsetting the animation of the street lights is class. AE is mint tho, isn't it!?

:D altho it runs bloody slow and unstable on my computer, and the rendering was pissing me off in boredom, it's a mint program :)

i still think the water is very static tho...

it's a very hard effect to pull off - I think the best plan would be to look for a plugin that emulates the effect... I dunno what to look for, but there are LOADS of powerful plugins!

i don't unfortunately. If you've got any P2P software, you should search for After Effects Plug-ins... there are loads of them and some of them can be pretty expensive!

This is very pretty. Good choice to animate this:) You should have made the fish swim though, i don't think they would bob up and down like thatXD
