Description

In this series of After Effects tutorials, we will create a science-fiction-inspired teleporter effect. We will begin with some character animation that has been matchmoved to a background plate. Then, using some basic dynamics tools and some creative re-purposing of other elements in After Effects' tool box, we will create a swirling portal of energy through which our character will take form. We'll create holographic effects, particle effects, and distortion fields, and finish up the training with some color correction and camera shake. By the end of the After Effects training you'll have the confidence to approach any project with the knowledge that no effect is out of your reach if you're willing to experiment a little! Software required: After Effects CS6.

In the series of tutorials, you will learn how Theo and you just basic dynamics tools and some creative repurposing of other elements and aftereffects toolbox create a swirling portal of energy through which our character will take four. Now aftereffects is a huge number of plug ins that really amazing stuff, but the goal of this seriously, Cecily, come up with using only the tools that come with after effects right out of the box. It's been forcing ourselves to find different past the same goal that helps us get a better understanding of the potential these tools brings. The table will create holographic effects, particle effects in distortion fields. And if there's that the training with some color correction in camera effects, by the end of the course, you have the confidence to approach any product with the knowledge that no effect is out of your reach if you're willing to experiment. Besides, this lady straining have also released Orioles covering enemy fights to work with you on this project. So with that, let's get started
