Hologram Glasses from ‘Free Guy’ in Blender & After Effects

Learn how to create a 3D box in this beginner tutorial for Blender and turn it into fake hologram glasses HUD using Adobe After Effects. This tutorial is inspired by the film ‘Free Guy’.

This was a quite special Copy Cat Friday I must say. It was our first 3D tutorial and well it wasn’t easy.  Lorenzo and Me were the only ones with some experience in 3D and with ‘some’ I mean very little. Lorenzo used to do some basic animation in C4D but that was almost 8 YEARS AGO! So you can say that this tutorial was also very educational for us. We gave ourselves a speed course in Blender and I think we did a pretty good job as a first tutorial. What do you say?

This tutorial sparked a fire in both of us to become better at 3D. We would love to make more of these kind of videos in the future not only for ourself but also for you guys! We did some polls a while ago and it seems like A LOT of you are very eager to learn Blender from us.

Being able to use this now and understand the very very basics already opens a lot possibilities for us. We can finally start making more advanced effects that we could never do in Premiere Pro or After Effects alone. So expect more EPIC content your way very soon!

  2. Awesome! I’ve been watching you guys for several years, but this is my first time commenting (I think). I would love spending a week on a production with your team. However, that is impossible since you guys are in another country and i’m too lazy to hop on a plane. I just renewed my passport so I really don’t have an excuse (maybe coronavirus).

    My suggestion, make a NEW 30-minute straight up horror story using elements from your holo-glasses, crazy rotation platform, black veins, black tears (& black eyes), extended movie set (effect) and finish it in 5.1 surround sound.

    Have a great day!
