Polishing and Final Notes
For this video, I'm working off of 07_01-CleaningAE, so feel free to open up that file. For the most part, I would say my After Effects file is looking good. From here, I would just suggest you go through and clean anything up that you feel is out of place. The big one here, for me, is the star prong that I have shooting out right here. It's above the text. Now remember I did this, I wanted to hide the arc from view and not have it overlay over this star prong, but really I think it's going to look better the other way around, and I might just have to go into Cinema 4D Lite and shift some things to make it all look correct. So, what I'm going to do is just come down here and find this one, I believe it's Star Flare 3, and I'm just going to bring it below this. So now you have that going on, and we no longer have any issues with stuff sticking out where it doesn't need to be. Now again, you might have other things to do here. You can go through and just modify and change as you see fit, try out the different color modes, try out different camera movements in Cinema 4D Lite, you can even control the camera in After Effects if you want to. So there's many things we can do with this, but again I'm going to leave this as is because I think it's looking good. And now I'm going to jump over to Cinema 4D Lite and clean up the file from there.
