Today we had our second AfterEffects workshop. We were shown how to import a video into our composition. Before we started, we had to film a short piece of footage of ourselves in front of a large green piece of card. Once we imported this video into AfterEffects we were shown how to remove the green background and replace it with an image of our choice. I decided on an underwater theme and therefore imported a sea background. I was then taught how to mask the fish to place them in front of the video to get a 3D feel. Once we were happy with this we carried on exploring the different ways to animate our text. To improve this clip further I could try animating the fish to move, creating a more life like scenario.
A link to the video will be up shortly.
