Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Create destruction with Shatter, part of After Effects CC 2018: VFX Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Making things blow up or crumble…is pretty much mandatory in visual effects.…And, while we aren't going…to be creating a blockbuster level…city demolition scene in this movie,…we will cover destruction on a smaller scale…and create a bit of groundbreaking using the shatter effect.…So here's the effect that we're after.…You can see that,…as this long jumper makes contact with the ground…we have a bit of shattering here.…Make this 50% so we can see a little bit better.…And the core effect behind here is just the shatter effect.…And I'm going to boil it down…to basically a couple of layers.…
We have the background.…We have the shatter itself.…And then we have a roto of the foot.…So, the foot roto,…the shatter, and the background.…So let's go ahead and look at just the shatter…and how to create this.…So let's move over to our start composition.…And here is our clean plate.…Let's go ahead and rename this background.…I'm going to duplicate this,…and we'll name this shatter.…So the first thing we're going to do…
