Have you looked at a photo and wished you were there, or wondered what the scene looked like to the photographer? Now you can bring your photos to life by adding motion and depth to your images. Author Rich Harrington reveals how you can transport your photos into a three-dimensional world using Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. The course shows you how to select the right images and resolutions; how to use masks and layers to build the composition in Photoshop; and how to animate the camera and light the scene in After Effects.
If your lynda.com membership includes it, we do have some hands-on lesson files that you could download and play with. Now I'm not able to include every single file in the exercises, that's because of some copyright concerns. Some of the projects we're going to be working with come from real commercial productions, so I can't give you all of the files, plus some of them are really big. But where possible, you'll find hands-on exercise files, as well as some additional files that you could play with on your own. Hopefully, these will bring the techniques to life.
If you don't have access to the lesson files, just find some of your own photos and potentially some footage to use as well, and you could jump in and practice that way.
