Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Stylizing the footage, part of After Effects Apprentice: 15 Creating a Sports Opening Title.
So now we have our skater movie with the grid effect and the block dissolve.…In this movie we'll deploy the cartoon effect to the movie and also look at how…the CC Composite effect works.…Just so you can see the movie a little clearer, I can either turn off the top two…layers, or I can solo the skater layer.…And I'll select a Skater movie and apply Effect > Stylize > Cartoon.…I am going to use the default settings, go ahead and play with the parameters…and get the look that you'd like.…
Once you've a look that you are happy with, the next step is to apply another…effect, and that's Effects > Channel > CC Composite.…What CC composite does is allow you to composite the original movie on top of…the effected movie using various blending modes.…The default setting is not what we are looking for.…What it's doing is compositing the original image on top of the Cartoon…Effect using 100% opacity.…Of course, you can use the Opacity parameter to blend between the cartoon image…and the original image.…
But you also have all these blending modes to choose from.…
