Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the phone reveal glow, part of Cinema 4D: Rendering Motion Graphics for After Effects.
The phone really looks like it's emerging from the platform now, but it really…doesn't feel too energetic.…To set up the huge explosion that we're going to add later on, we really need to…give our phone some energy.…We're going to use the Starglow effect again to add some energy to the phone.…So let's go into the MMM-001 Working COMP and this is where all of our…compositing is coming together and if I scrub back in time, you're going to see…that phone now emerge up out of a platform, and that's all thanks to that track…matte that's in the Phone Pass Pre-COMP.…If I use the page down key and just page through that, you can see that the…phone is coming out, but it still looks the same as it did.…
It's coming out of this white hot energy environment, and so it really should…have energy imparted into it as it passes through that boundary.…So I'm going to use the Starglow effect and I'm going use it a couple times.…The first -time I use it it's going to give a warm energy to it.…The second time I use it, it's going define more of the shape of the phone.…
