This course pulls together the skills you've been learning in the previous After Effects Apprentice installments to create a real-world video promo. Trish leads you through building the artwork and components used in the final piece, and then Chris shows how to assemble these precompositions into a 3D world, timed to music. Along the way, Trish and Chris also share their thoughts as they design a video project, including unifying the overall look and handling change requests from clients.
The After Effects Apprentice videos on lynda.com were created by Trish and Chris Meyer and are designed to be used on their own and as a companion to their book After Effects Apprentice. We are honored to host these tutorials in the lynda.com library.
Now we've created several different output modules depending on the different scenarios. One, say that you want an archived absolute best quality of your final render. A lot of people argue over their favorite codecs, but one approach that a lot of people like is to use a ping, or PNG sequence. I'll open up that Module, Format > PNG Sequence. Since we did render at 16-bits per channel, you can set the color depth to Trillions of Color. Millions of Color is just 8-bit color depth, Trillions is 16-bit.
The QuickTime animation codec is restricted to 8-bit color. That's why people like to use PNG. It's a lossless option that can save 16-bits. There are other choices high-end shots particularly like OpenEXR Sequences, but PNGs are something that are pretty universal; otherwise, for our master that we're going to archive, we're not doing any resizing or any cropping. I'll cancel just to make sure I don't accidentally make changes.
