Adobe After Effects Quick Tip – Importing Image Sequences
Importing is a way of life for After Effects users, but sometimes we end up taking the long road without even realizing it. In this Quick Tip, Kevin P McAuliffe shows you how to handle image sequences, so they are easier to work with in your AE projects.
Quick Tip – After Effects – Auto-Creating Compositions
When working in Adobe’s After Effects, you can get footage from just about anywhere, and in most cases, you don’t have the time to figure out what the client gave you, as in most cases, they don’t even know. This quick tip will show you how to match your composition to a clip in your project to get you animating in no time flat.
The Rotobrush tool in After Effects CS5 automates the tedious task of selecting an object over the duration of a video clip. In this tutorial, Tom Green shows how easy it is to select the subject from one clip and drag it onto a new background clip.
Author shows how to use After Effects to create the effect of sketching images onto the screen. Created from your video or other images, the sketch can then animate as rolling footage. This is a fun and versatile effect that requires no 3rd party plug-ins.
In this tutorial we are going to learn how to create a sequence that involves text animating along a custom path using the first margin text property. A custom path is a vector path that is drawn freehand using the pen tool in After Effects.
Adobe After Effects Quick Tip – Cleaning up messy projects
Nothing is worse than trying to work in an After Effects project that’s an absolute mess. In this Quick Tip, you will see how simple it is to clean up a project to make it easier to work in, or archive.
Author develops the techniques demonstrated in Part 1 of this tutorial. He applies the Particle World Text to Sand effect to 3D text created using the Shatter Effect, and composites that onto a background. He then reverses the effect, changing sand into an onscreen character who finally, blows away as dust in the wind.
There are a number of approaches for creating 3D and faux 3D text (and shapes) in After Effects with native and 3rd party tools. Itâ€™s rather easier to list them than to demonstrate them, especially since there are a number insightful options for solving deficiencies in the popular, inexpensive approaches (duplicate layers and the Shatter effect).
Author introduces “Shatter-Mation”, the use of AE’s Shatter Effect to animate text, logos and other shapes. Rob demonstrates how the Shatter Effect’s Force and Physics parameters can be adjusted to precisely control objects in 3D space for a wide variety of effects and transitions.
From Text to a Cool Extruded-3D with After Effects
As cool as 3D is in After Effects, thereâ€™s no doubt that an extrude tool is something we all wish for. While there are a few plug-ins that handle such a task (Zaxwerks Invigorator PRO being one of my favorites), thereâ€™s a cool way to achieve a true 3D look (more or less) using the 3D effects in Illustrator.
Create a cool 3D sci-fi textured type look in Adobe After Effects, using the Fractal Noise, Texturize and Roughen Edges effects along with Expressions, Luma Mattes, Motion Blur and pseudo 3D Camera techniques.
Flash and after effects go hand in hand. Mastering both is an added advantage for motion graphic people as it saves your lots of time and energy. Check out how with these After Effects Flash Tutorials.

Bending Flash Video in After Effects
Match your video to the geometry of an object by using a warp effect in After Effects.
One of the strengths of Flash is its ability to create vector animations. The Timeline in Flash makes it possible to add motion to vector objects, resulting in animation with crisp, clean lines and motion that would be difficult and time-consuming to create in After Effects.
Use CS3 integration to create falling snow over an image of cedar trees. Use After Effects to create the falling snow, then export the effect as a Flash video and drop it on top of the image. Experiment with blending modes to get some creative results
Flash has easy animation tools, vector morphing, almost-instant rendering, and a sophisticated scripting language called ActionScript. For many, ActionScript is the key benefit of Flash. True, After Effects has Expressions (written in another scripting language), but they arenâ€™t as powerful or versatile as ActionScript programs.
After Effects Video Tutorials will explain you visually, in a step by stop process, to master after effects.
Guru Lesson 2
In this guru lesson you learn how to apply effects to layers. We create an amazing lightning effect but the concepts you learn appy to any other effects, too. You also learn the basic concept of keyframes that allows to animate any property in After Effects over time.
In this tutorial we will only use built in AE plug-ins to achieve the final effect. We will learn how to divide a layer into numerous parts and then how to control the geometric aspects of those parts using the advanced features of Card Dance along with the Ease and Wizz script.
When you copy a mask in After Effects from one layer to another one, it very often does not stay where it has been before. In this quick tip tutorial you learn how to avoid this nasty problem using the nifty little tool CopyMask2Layer.
In this tutorial you learn how to use After Effects to turn you arm into a cyborg arm. We use MochaAE (which is included in After Effects) to track the motion and perspective distortion of the arm and then do the compositing in After Effects.
In this tutorial author will recreate a similar look from an older Gnarls Barkley video. The principles author will cover are foundational and can be used for some incredible animations other than simply imitating a great music video.
