To enhance any story or cut, a lot can be done with layering and the use of visual filters. Delve into two basic compositing applications and how to achieve a whole new level of visual enhancement with the use of existing special effects and filters within these two popular applications. The class covers basic operation and user interface.
Motion has a very innovative "recording" timeline to simplify keyframing, and has many templates and behaviors that help achieve effects with ease, but yet allow for customization and integration with Final Cut. After Effects is a standard in compositing and has been an industry standard for years. It is a very powerful tool, and has a lot of supporting plugins.
In addition to working with both applications, explore how effective use of masks, mattes, and motion graphics can aesthetically raise the level of any project. Specific topics covered include: layers, rotoscoping, filters, behaviors, 3D space, particle generation, lights, motion tracking, stabilizing, and keyframing.
