I’ve been looking at how to make cool camera effects in After Effects but I had a bit of trouble using the camera object to do anything meaning full (or simple) with out making a mess or just failing me. With perseverance in my pocket and a lot of “FFS BLOODY WORK!” I managed to find a simple and effective way to pan and zoom the camera in After Effects. You use a Null object as a mediator. Null objects speak both English and Camera so can translate what you do for the camera to understand.
The final part of the growing vines tutorial! Here for your enjoyment. Hopefully you will be able to create some sexy stylish looking vine growth for your videos now. Don’t be scared to have a go then post it as a response to my video, I’d love to see what you guys come up with!
This is the first part of the tutorial for the Growing vine animation I’ve made! OK It’s a little in depth with Photoshop and not much After Effects but it’s it makes it a lot easier on you in After Effects if you can get the starting file in place. There are also a few cool little tricks I’ve learnt while doing this. When you create a folder in Photoshop and import the .PSD (PhotoShop Document) into After Effects it makes the folders compositions! How about that for connivence?
Working on Part 2 now, should be out later this week if not tomorrow!
Continuing on from the opacity effect I showed you yesterday. In this tutorial I show you how to add the Scale animator to your text to make it pop out, or sit back, into your composition. If you haven’t seen them I’d recommend going to see the previous two blogs to watch the series from the start. This is a very simple effect and when used together with the other animation effects I’m going to show you, they look awesome and stylish!
