After Effects: Large Scale Explosions in AE
The first tutorial, “Creating Mattes in After Effects”, demonstrates how to create and add mattes to make the explosions erupt from the other side of a building. The second tutorial, “Compositing Large Scale Explosions”, uses the mattes created in the first tutorial to layer stock explosion footage in a scene and the how to blend it against a bright sky. The backplate used in the tutorials can be downloaded from ActionVFX, but sadly no actual explosion footage, if you want to follow along.
These tutorials were found via CGPress. Thanks for sharing.
