This is an in development progress of a skin built for a custom Xbox dashboard. The skin provides the overall look and feel when the Xbox is loaded up and ready to play.
This is the overall progress with each step I take. I usually start with what the dashboard will look like, tweak it until i find something I like and gradually change the image as I see fit. Once I have completed, I sort and break down the layers so I'm able to turn them into separate png images and then start animating them in after effects, turning on and off opacity, key framing the transform, rotation, etc.
I then combine the background video with an overlay and voila! I determine how the videos transition together smoothy and building sound wav files to match the videos. I usually build theme music first off over everything to get my mind set for what I want the theme to look like.
