Synoptic Project: NextGen News Intro

Before the character watches the news program in our film, we wanted an intro to play.

I have taken a world map and added CC Sphere to it, to make the image into a globe.

Create Rings:

Apply new lines comp to globe comp and CC Sphere, then change scale and rotation

Add Adjustment Layer, edit Hue and Saturation, then add Gradient Ramp and Calculations to create a blend of the Nextgen logo colour.


Add Dimension – glow and shadow, then edit drop shadow – white glow, drop shadow – dark halo 1 and drop shadow dark halo 2.


Edit Background and add Text for countdown, then add expression for slider in  null object to change the number.


Export Comp and track onto the tv screen.
