Join Andy Needham for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Compositing a Cell Phone in After Effects.
- [Voiceover] Before we begin, I want to give you some sense of expectation, so what you could expect in this course. What it is and what it's not. I'm assuming that you have basic understanding of Adobe After Effects and Premiere, and you'll certainly need this foundation to get the most out of this course. If you need some pointers, there are plenty of courses in the training library to get you up and running with these software applications. We're not going to be going through this project in minute detail. But, that being said, is going to be detailed in some places and more of an overview in others. And you'll learn some useful techniques that you can apply to any other project of this type.
Here, Andy Needham shows how to take the app mockup created in the companion course, After Effects: Creating a Mobile App Interface, and composite it into live-action footage of a smartphone. The final product is an animated promo video that helps visualize how the app will be used on a real device. Andy also covers storyboarding, tracking, keying, color correction, and a few audio tips. By the end of the course, you'll have more experience with the screen replacement workflow in After Effects and have a web-ready deliverable ready to share with the world.
