Tutorial: After Effects: Creating Light Trails/ Long Exposures in After Effects

Photographer and cinematographer Dan Marker-Moore shows you two different techniques to create his super cool light trails/long exposure looks in Adobe After Effects.

Dan Marker-Moore says, "Today I break down how to achieve this Long Exposure Video effect I used on a recent Toyota video. I first break down how you can use the blending mode set to lighter color and offset duplicates of the same video offset by one frame. I then show you how to use the Echo effect set to Maximum to create the same effect."

More info on this technique can be found at Dan's blog post here: https://www.danorst.com/...
