Radar Detection and Ranging
A CreativeCOW After Effects Video Tutorial


CreativeCOW presents Radar Detection and Ranging--Video Training by Jerzy Drozda Jr

Article Focus:
In this video tutorial, Jerzy Drozda Jr (aka Maltaannon) demonstrates how to create a radar that really works! You'll draw the radar, animate the target over it, and watch how the radar detects the object by itself, marks it on the grid and even makes a beeping sound.

This tutorial is no different from the others. It's not really about creating a certain effect. Oh no. It's about solving common and uncommon problems, and about finding solutions to situations that might occur in the future. All to help you work more efficiently by saving huge amounts of time. It's not about the final visual result, but the way to get there.

Loved the tutorial thanks. Just had one problem with it. When I applied the polar coordinates, the left and right edges of my radar clipped off the edges of the screen. Even when I reduced the scale with the adjustment transform, the clipped edges reduced with it. Any suggestions? I have AE 7 if that makes a difference.

Thanks for the great tutorial! Its always great to find new ways to do things you haven't thought about before. Unfortunately I am still in AE 6.5 and can not open the project file, but would still like to see the code you wrote for the detection. Could you post it? Thanks!

Thanks for the great tutorial! I have wanted to know how to make a good radar simulation for some time and this one is excellent.

I'm trying to learn expressions so this was very helpful in that respect as well. I wish that you could have gone into depth a little more on the more complicated expressions but I still learned a lot.

Thanks again. Keep up the great work!

mocha Tracks The Wolf of Wall Street

mocha Tracks The Wolf of Wall Street

With multiple VFX Oscars (Hugo and Titanic, plus a nomination for Apollo 13) plus a couple of Emmys (Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) under his belt, the most remarkable thing about Rob Legato's latest VFX extravaganza is that it doesn't appear to have any VFX at all! Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street is a masterpiece of what has become known as invisible effects, and this article from our friends at Imagineer, highlighting Rob's work with mocha, is a real eye-opener.
