BBC1HD "Cubes" trail
November 2010

Agency: RKCR/Y&R
Production Company: Red Bee Media
Post Production: Digital Distortion

Created using Aftereffects CS5 along with a plethora of third-party plugins, most notably:
Trapcode Form
Trapcode Particular
VC Optical Flares
Magic Bullet Looks

The 3D Cube particles were actually 2D sprites moved in a 3D space (by Form and Particular). The 2D source sequence (a looping, rotating cube) was generated in NewTek Lightwave 10.

There are numerous other versions of this Trail for other high profile BBC programmes. All have been built at Digital Distortion.
