Lighting Tricks in After Effects was created and produced by Trish and Chris Meyer. We are honored to host their material in the lynda.com Online Training Library®.

Creative lighting can have a big effect on the beauty of a shot, especially in the areas of vignetting, hot spots, and highlights. In Lighting Tricks in After Effects, instructors Chris and Trish Meyer demonstrate how to alter the lighting of already-shot footage and text animations in After Effects. Although it involves the use of 3D lights, no prior knowledge of 3D space is necessary; this trick works on stationary full-frame footage as well as 3D elements.

Topics include:
  • Creating vignettes and metallic looks using simple 3D light tricks Working with the Layers Material options Applying lighting effects to text, including Specular and Shininess
