Slickest 3DS Text Effects I’ve seen: Scientology Basics CGI Video

January 7, 2008 1 By Tad Reeves

Just posted to the Scientology Basics website was a CGI video done for the launch of the Basics in July. 

Now, I don’t know if anyone else has seen anything as impressive as this for the release of books, but I certainly haven’t.  Personally, I think that the 3DS Max text effects are the slickest I’ve ever seen.  I’ve got to figure out how to do some things like that myself.

And if you watch it, definitely turn up your speakers.  The sound rocks too.

This is some of the animation from the opening of the Basics CGI — the Basics are the foundation of any study of Scientology and Dianetics, and as such the graphics depict this as a rock-solid basis of further study in the subject.

Each book is presented with its accompanying lecture series, and each has its own sequence, with text effects that suggest at the actual content of the book and lecture series.  This one is for Advanced Procedure & Axioms and the Thought, Emotion & Effort Lectures, which go over the restoration of self-determinism to the individual so that he can create his life and move out of fixed conditions.

I can’t really show it well without the animation — the text effects in the video are pretty slick.  This one is for the book Creation of Human Ability, where Mr. Hubbard discusses a number of processes that assist the individual to be more in present time and able to control his surroundings, but also address the thetan exterior — meaning the spirit as separate from the body.
