Recently we put up a little VFX test which proved unexpectedly popular, so we've now put together a tutorial that shows you how to recreate it yourself. There's a lot packed into this new tutorial, from animation rigs to 3D reflections, so it's a bit of an epic at 15 minutes. We know how to spoil you.
You can grab the project file from here: http://hitfilm.com/files/twirl.zip
Let us know what you think and have a go at creating your own shots using some of these techniques. We look forward to seeing what you come with!
