Hi I'm Lee Lanier and welcome VFX Techniques, Creating Particle Effects. In this course, we'll look at ways to incorporate particle effects within After Effects. I'll start by showing you how to generate particles using several built in plugins. Then I'll show you how to alter the particles with dynamic settings and various effects.
We'll see how they change the mood of a scene through retiming and color grading. We'll be covering all these techniques plus plenty of other After Effects tools. So let's get started with VFX Techniques, Creating Particle Effects.
