Adobe after effects part 1

Alright, So this spinning title above was NOT made in After effects, but it’s just a cool little thing I like to put on my pages sometimes. If you don’t have After effects, You can just go to a different page on my blog, or a different blog. This can just get you started with after effects if you have it. So to make a video off the start, you can go to Composition, New composition. It comes up with some settings that you don’t necessarily have to change, but sometimes you should. To make a comp out of a video, just drag and drop your video to the New Comp icon that looks like this:

Once you’ve made your comp, You have to make a new layer if you don’t have a video. So you can go to Layer, New, solid. More settings come up, but it doesn’t really matter right now. Once you have your main Footage, you can add a series of effects to to it. For instance, on a video, you can go to Effect, generate, CC light beams, which creates a light that can pass for sunlight coming from a window, and many other things. There are so many effects that I can’t even say them all – as of right now, but sooner or later there will be a part 2 of this, which will have some more advanced things in after effects CS5. So to end this, I’ll just show a screenshot of after effects so this page looks halfway decent.
