Right so I'm gonna get all religious! The Vicar at my church asked me if i could do something to support a sermon he is giving in a week or so. He gave me a rough idea as to what he wanted the message of the vidoe to be and that was all.
Been having issues with encoding -
here's a direct link:
After Effects 6.5 Pro - Compositing
Sony Vegas 7 - Music cut, master sound mix and small timing adjustments.
Am not looking for any religious debates jus thought i'd show the vid cause i likes how it turned out.

Reason: Link Change
And quite right to like how it turned out too.
I just wanted to say thanks for the inspration.
Nice ending were you zoomed out and the letters formed a cross, very original. I have seen editing techniques like this before, see also (http://www.flabber.nl/archief/019451.php) it's the first movie) and I can't figure out how you get the animation to match so well with the speech.

Yes, I imported the Audio into AFX first and matched all the keyframes to the speech. By expanding the waveform of the audio i was able to match it quite easily. It was 2 loooong days doing this.
The AFX project has 89 Layers. All the layers are parented to the first line of text and its that layer that is animated simply changing scale, position and rotation. Keeping track of postionting was a challenge but it worked out pretty well.
The other thing was it was the first time i used multi-machine rendering using AFX's Render engine on another machine. The first render with 1 machine took 3hours 45mins, with this method render time was cut down to 2hours 30mins.

Looks very nice, must be a trendy vicar.
Now that's as impressive a piece of work as I've seen in a long time!
Given how long it must have taken, did you go back with a short concept piece first to see if you were on the right lines?

yeah i did, i did the intro sequence - first 30 seconds or so and then he saud cool go for it.
Trendy Vicar? lol - He's def not the sterotypical vicar u might imagine.
irish, my friend - that was superb. very creative and inspirational. i can imagine being in the congregation when this vid is played, and i wouldn't be surprised if you could see the goosebumps rising through the crowd. really great.
Thought provoking, inspirational, and well done!
As a passionate athiest, I must non-the-less admit that it's nicely done.
