Please refer the video below:


I am trying to re-create the first 2 seconds opening sequence where multiple cards placed side-by-side and creating opening in the middle where objects move and let the hole getting enlarged.

I have tried arrays using empty in the center of scene and created copies, however it doesn't create the same form.

Is there a way to make it similar to the reference video, and apply the animation?

Thanks in advance for your valued time.

  1. model the card e.g. like this

enter image description here

  1. move the card in edit mode on your x-axis

  2. Duplicate card with CTRL-D, rotate on z-Axis 60 degrees

  3. repeat step 4 with CTRL-R 4 times so you have 6 cards in total

  4. Make a 2nd card, and move it in edit mode on your x-Axis too

  5. Rotate that card 30 degrees on z-Axis

  6. Repeat steps 3-4 for that second card so get something like this:

enter image description here

  1. add an empty as controller for the x-rotation of the cards

  2. add an object constraint like this to every card:

enter image description here

  1. animate the x rotation about 60 degrees for this controller

  2. add a new master controller

  3. parent all cards to that master controller

  4. animate the z rotation about 30 degrees for this controller

  5. add a short x-rotation for the controller from 8)
