So I left a job working on slot machines, and what's one of my first projects at the new job? That's right, making a slot machine: I just can't quit you, gambling world... :)
Seriously though, it was a real quick & dirty assignment that turned out to be a lot of fun. the slot is just something from iStockPhoto.com, and I went in and added highlights, glows, some meter text, and the reel spinners after the fact. I'm learning a new 3D program in my spare time, Maxon's Cinema4D, and this was my first chance to use it at the new job. Surprisingly, the 3D text was accomplished not in C4D but in After Effects, through the use of Maltaanon's ingenious little CE Shape Extruder script.
I love After Effects a little more each day.
