- In this last chapter, we will examine the last step…in the production pipeline workflow.…The post-production in After Effects.…Right now, we are looking at the main comp,…which contains all five scenes. Actually, six scenes.…Each one of those scenes is composited…almost in an identical way.…So, let's start by examining scene one.…And let me make some room here so we can…appreciate all the layers.…
First of all, we've got the beauty pass pre-comp,…which contains all the rendered sequences that I have…rendered from Maya.…To this pre-comp, I have added the plugin…ReelSmart Motion Blur, which gives me this…very, very nice motion blur we can see here on the screen.…Above that, we have the texture pre-comp,…which is basically made out of three different textures,…and an adjustment layer that has a few effects on it…to get the result we are looking at right now.…
The reason we can see through this texture…is that each one of those parchment layers has…different transfer modes.…Let me hit F4 to switch to the transfer modes.…
Note this is a project-based learning experience, designed for members who are already familiar with RealFlow. Each step of the process is rich with lessons applicable to the variations that motion design artists will face in the real world.
