Using the loop expression i was able to have animated background elements to really bring life to the animation in subtle ways. This clock is one of my favorite pieces, its simple, but fits in with the asphetic i was creating really well.
Again using the loop i was able to create a 2.5D ride for my faire scene, it was quite hard merging the enviroment with a 2.5/3d precomp in a good looking way, it took alot of planning and some good knowledge of After Effects.
I decided to have the rocket elements of the ride orientate towards the camera in a sprite manor rather then follow the ride, i felt it looked better, kind of creepy.
First i tested out the concept using placeholder graphics, jsut to see how it worked, i then replaced the elements with final images.
