After Effects/Photoshop Workshop 13/11/2014 Part 2

Leave a comment

In the second part of our workshop we started off using Photoshop. We created a background and drew shapes over it, making sure we kept inside the shape. We then deleted the background and merged the layers into one layer. The next step was to multiply the image and rotate it so we ended up with a constant 360 degree image. (It reminded me of the shape of a flower). We repeated this three times, and on the third image I used the pen tool. After saving these we opened them up individually in After Effects and created a new composition.

We aligned each flower-like shape on top of each other and rotated them clockwise and anticlockwise. After this we changed the colour of the background and added the same transition that we used for snow in the winter scene video I showed in my previous post. The whole idea of this task was to experiment with different tools and to have fun with it. We were told it wouldn’t look very aesthetically pleasing so we went a bit crazy with the colours and transition effects! I don’t like the look of my final project because it’s a bit crazy and in-your-face, although we were just playing around with it and it didn’t have to look a certain way.



Prepare your eyes for my final experiment…
