After Effect Assignment 2: Video FX Scene

This is my second assignment for After Effect. I have created a short video FX about cracked floor and jumper effects. So, I did a research about both effects. I got some idea about it. My idea is about two guys going to class and they jump from somewhere to front of their building. In that scene, I used the cracked images. I found some images about the cracked floor on the Internet.

In the scene, I used the effect the same as jumper but I used it with the door in front of building. I can go inside the building and don’t need to open the door. Also, I have approximately three or four camera shots for this video. When I made this video, I got some problems about distort effect and the cracked floor as well. I try to make it smooth and look realistic. However, I can solve it and I’m enjoyed with my video. Furthermore, I did a research about tutorial of those effects on YouTube. I got many tips from the tutor because some effects in the video tutorial, I never use before. Moreover, I try to do my best for create this video. I hope the audience enjoyed my video.

This is my video!!

Week 7: Motion Tracking

In this week, I have learned about Motion Tracking. I made 2D and 3D tracking. I shoot two videos for 2D and 3D. Then, I edited them in After Effect. In my opinion, I think 3D tracking is easier than 2D because I can achieve it. However, I edited 2D tracking but I can’t change the point of tracking. I think it might depend on the video that I had shoot because I confused about how to shoot video for 2D tracking. Also, I think 3D tracking is better than 2D. I prefer 3D tracking and really enjoyed with it.

This is my 3D tracking video!!

I have been looking at 2D and 3D tracking example. I found many example videos for that. This video is one of my most favorites. In this video, it has many effects and good shot. I think it is really awesome. It has a spaceship on the road in this video. I really interested with that shot. In addition, I like the idea of how the creator demonstrates it. Also, his camera technique is so good because it can combine with the effect. Moreover, I got some idea and creative from this video. It is really helpful for me.

Week 6 Chroma keying and masking

In this week, I have learned about make cloning video. I shoot video of my self in this class. Then, I edited it in Adobe After Effect program. In my opinion, I think it really difficult to make it when I saw the example video. Actually, it is not hard to edit it but it is hard to make it smooth and look real. However, I really enjoyed with this class because I never do cloning video before and this is my first time to create my cloning video. Moreover, I think the most important thing is planning because when you should the video, you have to organize where the first character should stand and another character as well. Also, if you have good planning, it would easy for you to edit your video and make it better.

Week 5 colour grading

In this week, I have learned about colour grading. We create colour for the video. This task we also have to choose the scenes and edit it. In my opinion, the colours have meaning and can give a feeling. For example, red colour make you feel hot and blue colour make you feel cold. Also, light and shadow is important for video as well. However, if you know how the colour work and use it correctly, you would create fantastic video. Moreover, the same video but different colour can make you feel difference. For instance, black and white colour make you feel about the past but blue or light blue make you feel about the future.
