Depth Compositing in After Effects

Depth Compositing in After Effects

September 25, 2012

Post by Andrew Kramer/ Video Copilot: “In this tutorial we’ll use a technique called Depth Compositing to combine stock footage with 3D rendering and the use a Z-Depth pass. This method allows you to place 2D elements like stock footage into the depth of a 3D render. I also demonstrate how to export a Z-pass from 3D max, Cinema 4D and even use Element 3D to output a depth channel.”

Understanding Thinking Particles Fundamentals

Understanding Thinking Particles Fundamentals

July 31, 2012

Post at Motioneers.net: “Here is a video tutorial about Thinking Particles. This time we will go as basic as we can by avoiding presets and instead using the most fundamental nodes the particle system has to offer. We’ll set up an emitter from scratch and then build a simple particle simulation. This tutorial is – once again – not about creating fancy renders, it is meant to teach you the core techniques of Thinking Particles. I hope you learn something.”
