Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video 3D light falloff, part of After Effects CS5.5: New Creative Techniques.
The features we enjoy the most in a new release are anything that gives us a…brand new look or enhances the look we enjoyed playing around with.…Well, After Effects CS5.5 delivers several of those.…For one, 3D lights now have a Falloff parameter, the ability to change the…amount of illumination over distance.…I will be showing that later on in this movie.…Also 3D cameras have a greatly enhanced depth of field effect.…The iris simulations are beautiful now. I will be showing in the next movie.…There is a handful of new utilities, including ones that make it easier to set up…the focal plane for depth of field and a nice little Orbit Camera Rig, and I…will be giving those a workout.…
And finally there's new 2D effect, Camera Lens Blur, that simulates the nice Iris…effects that are in the 3D cameras, and I will be showing that as well.…Lots of stuff to cover! Let's jump in.…For those who have our book for Creating Motion Graphics for CS5, I'm in chapter…15's example project on lighting.…Now, I have open up the comp Ex_10_starter.…
