After Effects Tutorial

Today I am refreshing my memory of After Effects by doing pan and zoom tutorials and in the afternoon I am going to try my hand at ToonBoom.




My first very quick test at panning..

I am ashamed to say this took me almost an hour.. I really have forgotten so much about After Effects but by closely following the above tutorial was able to eventually come out with this.

And testing out how to blur;

Again it took me quite while..
I used this 'tutorial' for learning about the blur..

But if I keep practising should be able to do this much quicker in the future!

And how to blur a specific area;

This tutorial was very difficult to follow and did a lot of it by experimenting!! I don't really like using After Effects but I think it's because it's all quite complicated to me at the moment! If I spend more time learning the controls I should get better.

It's a slow process!
