Final update. I made some minor tweaks (adjusted the rise animation of the book and added in some energy wisping away from the portal). I could keep working on it/changing things, but at some point you just have to call it finished. A little sad that I didn't get a chance to add in a chunk of book shooting out of the explosion, but that might not have made that much sense anyway. Maybe I will add it if I get inspired at some point in the future. Anyway, here is the final video!
