Author Notes

Exploring some animation in After Effects with Stardust. Not crazy about the result but it was a fun process to problem solve and experiment with. Created the initial drove movement with a camera in 3D, then imported that data into AE to try and use for multiple things. I also did an animated loop for the drone and imported that as a 3D particle via OBJ sequence / loop.

Definitely something I'd explore more. Multiple types of emitters and various techniques on a single Stardust layer ;)
