The UI of "Absolom"

I created some UI for my personal science fiction project: “Absolom.” They will replace the monitor displays from the original footage of the spaceship cockpit set shot by Valentina Vee (and used with permission).

These are awesome! I love all of the attention to details! Thanks for sharing with us!


This is very convincing! I love the details in the monitors screen.

How did you achieve that look? Any specific referencing or overlays used or was it a custom build?


Custom build. Two Adjustment Layers above all the design elements. The top one had a Fast Box Blur with a radius of 0.5 and set to Add blend mode. The Adjustment Layer below had Glow, Venetian Blinds, Grid, and Exposure.

Here’s my effects stack for the lower Adjustment Layer:


That’s awesome, thank you for sharing the build!


Great stuff - loving it! :+1: :+1: :+1:
Especially (but not only!) the “approach tunnel” effect (in a curve up-scaling rectangular shapes).

Nice attention to details in all!

I once had to do one of these - didn’t have much time so I took this:

Easy to build stuff fast with this and also looks nice - but of course it’s a canned meat approach and not as unique as yours!

Thank you so much!

And thanks for the UI took kit link. Never know when something like that could be handy.

Have my speakers off but totally imaged the sounds from the Alien series lining up with this.
Camera ready work. Nice.


Thank you. I was certainly inspired by the UI’s of sci-fi properties such as Alien, Star Wars, and Star Trek.


That’s very cool!

Awesome UI work! I love the 2D brackets that form a 3D tunnel shape at 0:25. Very innovative!

Thanks! I used six shape layers set to 3D with their position and stroke width timed to loop seamlessly. (Using the loopOut() expression.)

This looks super sick! Great work.
