The new Transformers movie is coming, I can't hardly wait so I created an intro movie with the great Transformers logo. Everything is 3D except for the earth picture.

I used Macromedia Flash as an experiment to create an EPS file, but its probably easier to use Bixelangelo. I used the EPS file to create a 3D looking model. Make sure to install the transformer font first for best results.

Hope you like it! If you have any idea to improve it, please post a comment!

I especially like the wireframe effect around the text layers. It works really well. (for example layers 9 and 10)

It took me some time to find out how you've created the trail effect of the EPS logo until I discovered you've used the RTL7.fx effect file (layer 6) What a creative use of this effect.

WARNING: loading this animation in high quality mode can take some time, so it's best to switch to normal quality before loading this animation. (menu item SETTINGS / NORMAL QUALITY)

great job.

I've taken a closer look at the animation and found out that one of the reasons why it takes so long to load is because the EPS layers don't share their meshes.

Layers 6,8 and 13 all use the same EPS file, but all with different bevel styles and bevel sizes.

When you make sure all EPS layers use the same bevel style (2nd dropdown below textbox) and bevel size (BEVEL property) the EPS mesh only has to be created once and can be shared by the 3 EPS layers. This way the animation not only loads a lot faster, but also requires less memory.

I bet this is incredible, but is their an easy way to open this? I downloaded everything, and it was all in a folder, which I opened, with a lot in there, including pictures and the like, but when I tried to open the BT red icon, it kept coming up with a number of things I could not open....have tried using the directions above, but to no avail....any input would be great!

Which files could not be found?

Maybe you've forgotten to install the Transformers Solid font. The font is included in the zip file.
