In this VFX Breakdown, I'll show you how I created a spaceship flyby scene using ActionVFX Collections in After Effects and Maxon's Cinema4D.

As a VFX artist, you often have to work with what you have on hand. But that doesn't mean you can't create amazing results with the right tools and resources.
