Check out Ch9FinishedProject.mov in this chapter's folder on the book's DVD to see the spot you'll create in this chapter. This project shows you how to build and animate 3D elements using a Boris FX effect and create a unique logo reveal using another effect produced by Boris FX. In addition, you'll use gradients and blending modes to create some atmosphere. The project shows you how to do the following:

  1. Design and animate a color gradient for the project's background.

  2. Create a scrolling layer of text over the background.

  3. Use Boris FX's 3D Invigorator effect with a few Adobe Illustrator files to build a 3D gold bar and the company logo and animate the bar into the scene.

  4. Use masking techniques, Boris FX's BCC Sparks effect, and the Lens Flare effect to create the effect of the logo being welded into the gold bar.

The gold bar flies in from behind the viewer.

Sparks fly as the logo is burned into the gold bar.

The logo is revealed from left to right.
