Try adding special effects to a video
Get to know the basics of motion graphics and video compositing techniques using Adobe After Effects.
What you'll need
Become familiar with the workspace and how to import footage and other assets you’ll use to create a new composition.
Combine elements in the scene using layers and nondestructive blend modes. Correct color levels, hue, and saturation using effects.
Enhance your composition by animating an element along a path through the scene. Correct its color and shadows as it moves. And for a little depth, add an element to the foreground.
Add realism with motion blur and adjustment layer effects, including camera lens blur, a uniform color wash, and noise.
That’s it — you’re done. Tell us what you think about this tutorial.
