I came across the example above with a youTube search. I don’t know much about the creator but it looks to my eye to be fully created in After Effects. it is unlikely that any 3D models were used are some particle effects and likely stock footage elements.
GO DIGITAL HEALTH
A very clean example. It looks to have been created using After Effects with the plug in SURE TARGET. It relies heavily on illustrated vector elements. Apart from the tedious music it’s not bad work. It does get a little tedious, illustrating how important it is to change up the tricks you use to keep the viewer interested.
RTE ROAD TO THE RISING
This isn’t exactly a timeline, but it is a great example of making old photography come alive . This piece of music is also great and they’re is nice sound design and over all graphic treatment and great use of minimal stock footage like birds, nicely done.
BAND OF BROTHERS
This is some of my work from my time at 1K Studios in sunny California. Not exactly a timeline per say, it was created using static photography with place holders for photographs. The camera moves and moving images in the picture frames were add in post with After Effects. Lots of work went into Props and lighting for this animation and that is were the majority of the time was spent. The Art Director and Animator was the mega talented HIDEO IGAWA.
This is a much more complex, with heavy use of full 3D CGI models, sound design and documentary style footage, it’s quite brilliant created by the PIC, if you want to know more check this great article at THE ART OF THE TITLE
WIKILEAKS: WE STEAL SECRETS
With heavy use of particle systems this is an eye catching timeline of sorts. Similar to The Kingdom you also have great use of video footage threaded through the sequence. You also notice how important music is for setting the tone of a piece. Find out more here THE ART OF THE TITLE
