Experimentation: Animated Fans using After Effects

After Effects set up for test #2

I'm at the point in my Animation where the fans should start to come to life. Below is a test video using temporary renders using layer styles

The effect is pretty much what I had in mind, although it looks very obviously stencilled out (where the original fans would be). Not sure the best route to take yet. More experiments to be made soon

Test 2
Using 'Track Matte' and adding a fan layer on top of the pre rendered fish scene to keep the illusion of it still being on a fan (low quality at the moment)
