In this After Effects and Photoshop tutorial, we'll learn how to transition between seasons by making a spring-time park into fall. We'll start off by giving the shot a golden hue using a matte and an adjustment layer. We'll then paint colored leaf elements in Photoshop before bringing them back in After Effects to track the trees so we can get the leaf layers moving with the pan. We'll finish off the shot by adding some more orange leaves with a adjustment layer and a mask using tracking data. In the end of this After Effects and Photoshop training, you'll have created colorful fall foliage out of a scene that was shot in the spring. Software required: After Effects CC, Photoshop CC.
