This is the journal where I'll be keeping track of my progress in After Effects.
After Effects 1: Guy Punches Monitor
This video is created from the original Guy Punches Computer, where a man is filmed doing a scary maze and gets shocked by the scary face; he reacts with a falcon punch through the monitor.The altered version of this created through After Effects has a Nyan Cat video replaced over the original scary face.
This is done through using masks and layers of video. The masks removes the video within the monitor at a specific time frame and reveals the layer of darkness. I added the Nyan Cat video over the original video layers and used a mask to get a certain shape, feathered the edges to reduce crispness.
Between the first project and the second project, I have spent many classes helping Bobby Powell with his flash Actionscript 2 coding.
After Effects 2:
Currently downloaded the files ready for editing. The original video is below:The work done on the video involved adding special effects such as explosions, fire, smoke, and blood. This assignment is a good practice in using Keylight to remove a certain colour, as well as practice using effects to make a movie better.
The edited version has not been uploaded to YouTube yet.
