  1. Holy crap those are all so good. I really like the first and second one. The first one sort of reminds me of the old Playstation splash start-up.

  2. Wow! These are incredible! Some of the best 5 second project entries i’ve seen so far. Has there been any good entries in the Photography category?

  3. DUDE!! That first one has some epic lighting and glows – so cool. The rest really nice too. How do make those semi circles “sweep on” like they do in the 4th one?

    • Ah! A couple of mins in c4d and i managed to figure it out, Is it a “Disc” shape simply sliced?

    1. Those are all really good.
    2. I really need a better computer to render this 3D stuff.

    Is this the 5 second project or the 12 second project or the 8 second project? seems unfair for those who stick to the 5 to be compared to those who haven’t figured out how to make a 150 frame comp in after effects. imho.

    • Yeah, I do wish people would stick more to five seconds. But, I think that everyone has the right spirit so far.

  7. Is it just me or the 5 second projects quality is getting way better with each one? It´s getting intimidating hehe

    The first one is simply awsome. I would love to know the designers did those lovely shape that circules around the sphere ;)

    • I agree. First one is my fav the result is pretty flashy and spectacular. Bravo! Aaand it would be extremely kind of the author to show us the way he did it.

      • I’ve added the C4D scene if you look in Vimeo.
        It´s very simple.
        The rest is done in After Effects – the project file I haven’t shared: The ingredients are mainly 32bit colour depth, Trapcode Particular 2, a knoll lighfactory lensflare which position is linked to a spotlight in the back via the compTo expression, two copies of a fractal noise layer three copies of the sphere rendered out from C4d treated with glow and paintbuckets and fastblur to fade in with the background.
        Hope that gives some clues!
