I was thinking about doing the disney intro and found myself looking at what others had done, then had the great idea of nicking yours and playing with it
Like you said, time is the greatest killer of these projects and I started the Dreamworks one in AE messing about - after a few hours work I'd past the point of no return so finished it many many hours later. Ideally, I'd like to start it from scratch and do it properly using C4D and AE. AE does the smoke/clouds and water really well but the text looks a but rubbish and could do with being created in C4D.
I've done a lot of 'gamers' intros for Metal Gear/CSS/Quake, they're the greatest protaginists for intros for their Clans videos or websites, so It's gotten to the point now when I have an idea and it's almost impossible to create what I want in one program. Hence the reason nearly all are created in C4D and finished of in AE.
If it's just 3d text you're after Zaxwerks ProAnimator is easy to use and effective and intergrates into AE with great effect. I'm sure you could pick up a copy somewhere
C4D isn't that tough to learn, LOTS easier than Blender
...believe me. Blender isn't intuative like 3DS or C4D but considering it's free you can't complain.
I'm stuck in two minds whether to start from scratch the Pixar intro or the Dreamworks one...??? Help!!
Soz for going on but the answer to your original question is: I've got dozens of project files, 100's of music clips and 1000's of sound effects clips on my PC so chucked a few in the zip file; they have no relevance to the project files
I'll have a search for the Dreamworks AE file and mail w84no1 it when I find it, from memory I think I used the Trapcode pluggin for the watter ripple effect but couldn't swear on it...easily get you that though.
