Before you render out a graphic from Adobe After Effects, it is a good idea to play it back and see if you need to add motion blur and make sure the quality of the render will hold up. In this movie, author Eran Stern walks you through render settings, how to check the quality of the graphics, and what to consider when adding motion blur.
- [Voiceover] Okay, now it's time to render a final movie…and then bring it back to Premier Pro to justify…the creation of those 3D titles here inside After Effects.…So I want to make sure that few settings are enabled…and we are using the best quality that we can…in order to create a pristine and sharp look.…First thing that I want to do is…to enable motion blur for the text layers,…as well as for the Illustrator artwork of the logo.…
And, of course, let's also enable the motion blur preview…for the composition so we can get a sense of how this looks.…And I'm just going to park the CTI over here…so we'll have a representative frame to look at.…Now, I'm using the final quality over here,…and if you worked with Fast Draft,…you should also switch to the final quality now,…just to verify that you are getting the desired result.…If you are seeing grainy pixels, or you want to just…improve the quality of the Light Razor engine,…you can go to the preview options over here,…and choose render options.…
And over here, you can change the light razing quality.…
This course works through real-world scenarios, showcasing impressive type effects used to create visually stunning scenes. To make type integrate seamlessly with the footage, Eran demonstrates how to use tracking, rotoscoping, particles, distortions, camera effects, and more. Compositing is performed in Premiere Pro as the main editing hub. In addition to Photoshop and After Effects, the course also explores a PixelSquid plugin, a Bounce Pack set of transitions, ReelSmart Motion Blur, a Continuum Complete set of 3D objects, and some text design templates of Titler Pro 4. These third-party plugins are introduced to complement your workflow while keeping time spent outside the editing interface minimal. This course is designed to equip you with the skills needed to create promos, trailers, and openers that exhibit superb use of 3D titles.
