With Diablo III’s release (finally!) just around the corner, I thought I’d throw together a tutorial series showing you how you can create a Diablo III-style intro logo that would be ideal if you’re creating a clan video, gameplay footage or fan film. As usual, it relies entirely on the standard toolkit in After Effects (CS3 or later), so you won’t need any expensive plug-ins. That said, it’s certainly not as sophisticated as the actual Diablo III intro, which uses some pretty heavy duty effects like realistic flames, lighting, glow and particles.

The project file that goes with this tutorial can be found on this page.
The tutorial also requires a free font assets that I can’t legally redistribute, but you can download it from here.



Diablo III is available for purchase from HERE and will be released on the 15th of May. Logo and trademark remain the copyright of Blizzard Entertainment.
