Hi all, I need to create a little movie that basically looks like a flock of birds the fly in and land to form the outline of the UK. Does anyone have any ideas on how best to achieve this. I was wond
Re: Any ideas ... creating a shape with particles?

It depends on what program you are using to create particles. In Trapcode Particular you can set your emitter as a single point... an entire area like a cube or sphere... A light... a Grid... or for y
RGB to CMYK in AE?
by Micheel Leavitt 10 years ago
Hello, I am working on a class project and I made a few images in AE and exported as a JPEG and PSD frame. I am kind of disapointed in the conversion from RGB to CMYK from AE to AI, and I was wonderin

CMYK is strictly print (ink). Why not create your effect in AE with the Particles... Export a single frame or frame sequence... then convert that to CMYK Eric Woods http: EricWoodsFX.c

I don't think greenscreen is the big trick there. The Chrome effect was either a rubber suit or completely CG. Is the transition what you are trying to figure out or is it the effect itself EricWoodsF

Motion Sensing
by Tyler Britton 10 years ago
Hey I have a question. Is there any way to reveal something in AE that is only moving, like seeing movement only and the still background is like masked out. Anyone get what I am trying to say

Emily, I would agree that going the route of a Masters Degree would not benefit you. School's are a great way to learn broad Design concepts and techniques, but they lack real world application. Your
