Join Owen Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Grunge-texture , part of Creating a Handmade Look in After Effects 03: Compositing and Reusing Elements.
- I'll start by opening up the Oh No Robots' master edit…to preview the animation and get a rough idea…of how it's looking.…(Oh No Robots music)…Well, it's looking, pretty unified…and well, pretty imperfect.…
But it's still missing a little something…to take the handmade look to the next level.…And that something is visual evidence that this footage…has actually been handled by human hands.…I'm talking fingerprints, dust, smudges,…itty bitty little arm hairs or eyelashes that landed…on the paper elements or still photos.…That's right. I want some real life grunge up in there.…Now you can make your own animated grunge texture…with the help of a scanner…and some everyday white printer paper.…I'm always looking for a reason to abandon…my computer screen and get my hands a little dirty.…
And I encourage you to do the same.…If you don't have a scanner, don't worry,…I'll take care of the dirty work for you.…If you do have a scanner, then consider this a challenge.…Take eight pieces of plain white computer paper…and go to your kitchens, your basements,…
