What makes a 3D space battle even more spectacular? Compositing in Adobe After Effects. Learn to take the render-pass sequences of the spaceship versus asteroid scene you created in part 1 of this series and recombine them in After Effects. Author Lee Lanier shows how to integrate shading and color in your render passes, animate the flames emitting from the spaceship, and create a particle simulation that makes the asteroid explosion seem more realistic. You'll also learn to replicate glows, lens flares, film grain, and camera motion along the way.
Hi, I'm Lee Lanier, and welcome to VFX Techniques. In this course, we'll take render pass image sequences of a space scene and recombine them in After Effects. We'll integrate shading component render passes to recreate a spaceship and an exploding asteroid. We'll refine the renders by applying effects and generating particle simulations. We'll replicate glows, lens flares, film grain, and camera motion in the compositing program. We'll be covering all these features, plus plenty of other tools and techniques.
