The reason we love them is that they present us with a heightened, idealized version of reality. The couple are really, really charming and impossibly good-looking—in fact, one of them is Meg Ryan. Before the surgery. Oh, and music is playing. Nothing at all—and we love it. Man, she looked good. She looked good. But mostly, that T-rex felt real because she looked good. She was wet. It was dark.

She had a big old Dean Cundey blue rim light on her coming from nowhere. In truth, you could barely see her. But you sure could hear her. They make things feel right even if they skip over the facts in the process.

Move a gun half an inch and it sounds like a shotgun being cocked. Get hung up on? Instant dial tone. Modern computer displaying something on the screen? Of course there should be the sound of an IBM dot-matrix printer from They bring the sex.

So do cinematographers, makeup artists, wardrobe stylists, composers, set designers, casting directors, and even the practical effects department.

And yet somehow, we in the visual effects industry are often forbidden from bringing the sex. Our clients pigeonhole us into the role of the prop maker: Build me a T-rex, and it better look real. Not just good—impossibly good. Unrealistically blue-rim-light-outanowhere good. Sexy good. Have you ever argued with a client over aspects of an effects shot that were immutable facts? Do you ever get frustrated with clients who try to art-direct reality in this way? Well, stop it.

And you know what else? Was It Good for You? The sad reality is that we, the visual effects industry, pigeonhole ourselves by being overly preoccupied with reality. We have no one to blame but ourselves. Want me to xv Foreword do one at 48 frames? The problem is that the damage is already done. So when you attempt to break our self-imposed mold and bring the sex to your client, you will face an uphill battle.

Then all the talk of realism went away, and the shot got oohs and ahs. Your client reacts to your work emotionally, but they critique technically. When they see your shot, they react with their gut. You may think that those are the worst kind of comments, but they are the best.

Bringing the sex is all about cheap tricks. Lights On or Off? There are some visual effects supervisors who pride themselves on being sticklers for detail. This is like being an architect whose specialty is nails. There will forever be something more you could add, some shortcoming that could be addressed. Anyone can nitpick. And this is always the sex. Oh yeah: Star Wars. Audiences only care about the sex. I added a layer of smoke to technically match the surrounding shots.

Still, the shot died on the screen. Finally, I asked my compositor to softly darken down the right half of the shot by a full stop, placing half the plate along with our CG element in a subtle shadow. Boom, the shot sang. What I did was, strictly speaking, the job of the cinematographer, or perhaps the colorist.

And color correction is the ultimate cheap trick. But what a good colorist does with those basic controls is bring heaping, dripping loads of sex to the party. The problem is and I mean the problem—the single biggest problem facing our industry today , the colorist gets their hands on a visual effects shot only after it has already been approved.

There are those who question the validity of such a thing. Some perpetuate a stigma that After Effects is for low-end TV work and graphics only. Those techy, powerful applications are good for getting shots to look technically correct, but they do not do much to help you sex them up. After Effects may not be on par with Nuke and Shake in the tech department, but it beats them handily in providing a creative environment to experiment, create, and reinvent a shot.

No other book combines real production experience with a deep understanding of the fundamentals, aimed at the most popular compositing package on the planet.

I can tell you that it was only after this particular matte painter made this conscious choice to focus on making things look good, instead of simply real, that he skyrocketed from a new hire at ILM to one of their top talents. So who brings the sex? The answer is simple: The people who care about it. Be the effects artist who breaks the mold and thinks about the story more than the bit depth. Bring the sex. This book is about creating visual effects—the art and science of assembling disparate elements so that they appear to have been taken with a single camera, of making an ordinary shot extraordinary without making it unbelievable.

The subject matter goes deep into core visual effects topics—color correction, keying, tracking, and roto among them—that are only touched on by other After Effects books, while leaving tools more dedicated to motion graphics Text, Shape layers, many effects, and even a few specialized tools such as Motion Sketch more or less alone.

Where applicable, the reasoning behind using one technique over another is provided. I aim to make you not a better button-pusher but a more effective artist and technician. Work on a major project, however, and you will soon discover that even the most complex shot is made up largely of repeatable techniques and practices; the art is in how these are applied, combined, and customized, and what is added or taken away.

Each shot is unique, and yet each relies on techniques that are tried and true. This book offers you as much of the latter as possible so that you can focus on the former. On the other hand, I have noticed recently that even beginners often understand more than they used to about the compositing process in general and about Adobe software in particular. In both cases it is the rise of Photoshop as the worldwide standard tool for image editing that has provided amateurs and students alike a leg up.

Color matching, keying, rotoscoping, and motion tracking are the topics that are essential throughout the rest of the book and in your compositing experience generally.

This section is the true heart of the book. Chapter 6, on keying which I long considered one of the strongest , received a thorough rewrite, as did Chapter 7, which focuses on rotoscoping. Chapter 11, on working beyond the standard 8 bits per channel, 2.

The biggest change in After Effects CS5 is that the software now makes use of bit memory addressing. This does not change a whole lot about how you work with the software, though, other than making it far less likely you will encounter out-of-memory errors as you work and far more likely that you can make better use of a multiprocessor system with an up-to-date graphics card.

Get reference. Too many artists skip this step. To paraphrase Einstein, a good solution is as simple as possible, but no simpler. Break it down. It only means you have taste. Compositing in After Effects Some users may be coming to this book unfamiliar with After Effects but experienced in other compositing software.

Each application is somewhat different, and yet the main competitors to After Effects—Nuke, Shake, Flame, Fusion, and Toxic, to name a few—are probably more similar to one another than any of them is to After Effects, which is in many ways a lot more like Photoshop. Render order is established in the Timeline and via nested compositions: layers, not nodes. After Effects has a persistent concept of an alpha channel in addition to the three color channels.

The alpha is always treated as if it is straight not premultiplied once an image has been imported and interpreted. Actions are not recordable and there is no direct equivalent to Shake macros. Temporal and spatial settings tend to be absolute in After Effects because it is composition- and timelinebased. Best practices to avoid this are detailed in Chapter 4. Of these differences, some are arbitrary, most are a mixed bag of advantages and drawbacks, and a couple are constantly used by the competition as a metaphorical stick with which to beat After Effects.

The two that come up the most are the handling of precomposing and the lack of macros. This book attempts to shed light on these and other areas of After Effects that are not explicitly dealt with in its user interface or documentation.

After Effects itself spares you details that as a casual user you might never need to know about but that as a professional user you should understand thoroughly. This book is here to help. It is the most accessible resource available on this complicated and much-feared topic, walking you through three scripts, each of which builds upon the complexity of the previous. Scripting provides the ability to create incredibly useful extensions to After Effects to eliminate tedious tasks.

Several of these are included in the scripts folder on the disc as exclusives to this book. In order to focus on more advanced and applied topics in the print edition, Dan Ebberts kicked JavaScript fundamentals to a special JavaScript addendum, also included as a PDF. For example, the disc includes demos of. SynthEyes from Andersson Technologies. Camera Tracker and Kronos from the Foundry.

Note that all. Finally, there are also a few useful and free third-party scripts mentioned throughout the book; for more of these, see the script links PDF in the scripts folder on the disc. The goal is to understand the logic of the software so that you can use it to think through your artistic and technical goals. This book will help you do that. The worst scientist is he who is not an artist; the worst artist is he who is no scientist. It helps you create believable, fantastic moving images using elements from disparate sources, and do so with the least possible effort.

Effective visual effects compositing uses your best skills as both artist and engineer. As an artist, you make creative and aesthetic decisions that are uniquely your own, but if you are not also able to understand how to implement those decisions effectively, your artistry will suffer. If I had to say what most often separates a great result from mediocrity, the answer is iteration—multiple passes—and solid technical skills enable these to happen most quickly and effectively, so your creative abilities can take over.

If this book opens at too advanced a level for you, see the Introduction for more resources to help you get up to speed with the basic operations of After Effects. But the basic principle is that After Effects lets you go beyond what you can otherwise do editing footage by actually changing what appears in the scene itself.

Figure 1. Your author was in fact paid to create the 3D model as a viral product endorsement a few years back. You can actually drag them anywhere onto the After Effects user interface UI , and they should end up there. It now generally means the background onto which foreground elements are composited, although the foreground can also be the plate, and there are other kinds of plates such as effects plates.

Drag those elements into that folder. How After Effects looks at program startup depends on its most recent usage, if any. Does the user interface seem complicated? Now breathe a sigh of relief, since I can tell you that there are a few in there I no longer even use—Wiggler and Smoother being two that have been effectively rendered obsolete by expressions Chapter In any case, I would never recommend leaving so many controls open at once.

Now try tearing off the Info panel—hold down Ctrl Cmd as you drag it by its tab away from its current position. You can do this with any panel: It is now undocked.

This may be too much hot-rodding for you right away, so now try dragging it over a few of the other panels without letting go. You can drag it elsewhere or Ctrl Cmd drag and drop it to tear it off again.

You can combine it with the Preview panel to save space: Drag the Info panel over the Preview panel or vice versa using the tab at the upper left. The Window menu contains all of the panels, and each can be toggled here. I have done whole After Effects animations that have no source elements at all, but these are typically type animations with solid, shape, and particle-based effects created right in the application—in other words, they are more motion graphics than visual effects, which are almost always based on source footage—on the effects plate.

Listed are its pixel dimensions x , pixel aspect ratio 1 or square , duration in frames or time, depending on your project settings—more on all of these later , frame rate, and color depth. This image includes an alpha channel to store transparency data, which is covered in depth in Chapter 3. To get to work, place your elements in a composition, or comp. With no extra effort you automatically set a comp whose size, aspect, duration, and frame rate match those of the source. Now add the Red Bull can.

There are a few ways to do this. You can simply drag it into the Timeline panel to where you see a black line above the existing layer and drop it. I: Working Foundations Just like in Photoshop, simply positioning one layer above another in the stack—in this case, the Timeline panel instead of a Layer panel creates a composite image.

Chapter 3 introduces the full variety of options beyond this nobrainer, and even illustrates how this simplest of composites actually works. Preview and Refine Now is a good time to preview the composition and see how it looks. Here you can make use of the Preview panel, at least until you learn the one essential shortcut from it—0 zero on the numeric keypad which is on the side or, on a laptop, embedded with the function key shortcuts stands in for the RAM Preview icon.

Beginners often mistakenly hit the spacebar to play compositions in After Effects. With faster and faster systems, this increasingly works, but only a RAM preview buffers the composition into memory and locks its playback to the correct frame rate, and only it includes audio playback.

It brings the panel up full screen for easier examination. The shot needs work. What do you see? Press it again and even the top menu bar toggles off, filling the entire screen. I: Working Foundations Figure 1. You can also double-click in an empty area of the Project panel. Prefer your workspace customizations to the defaults? Choose New Workspace in the Workspace menu and enter a new name to overwrite it; now After Effects will reset to your customized version.

An image sequence is less fragile than a QuickTime movie; if there is a bad frame in a sequence, it can be replaced, but a bad frame will corrupt an entire movie. You can interrupt and restart an image sequence render without then having to splice together multiple movies.

It is particularly good at incrementing new versions of multiple sequences all at once, selecting subsets of frames, and finding multiple sequences in a single folder.

Things get more complicated if you are dealing with multiple image sequences in a single folder. By holding the Shift or Ctrl Cmd key as you select more than one frame, however, you can. Want to be rehired repeatedly as a freelancer or be the hero on your project? Chapter 4 offers suggestions. Render the first and last 3D frames only, with their correct final sequence numbers, and import them using the Import dialog with Force Alphabetical Order unchecked.

You now have a placeholder of the correct length that is fully set up as soon as the file is rendered. As you advance in your skills, by all means avoid the bar like a recovered alcoholic—the top menu bar, that is. I often refer to context-clicking on interface items. Display context menus by right-clicking the mouse Windows or Ctrl-clicking Mac. The icon shown for an item in the Project panel indicates its source application. Any source can become unlinked if it moves or changes its name or location Figure 1.

You may have used the Find Missing Footage check box in older versions, and you may wonder where it has gone. Because every project is likely to be moved or archived at some point you are making backups, right? Let the computer do what it does best and automate a cleanup of your sources. If you check Reduce Project as well, the unused source is also removed from the collected project.

You even get a warning dialog telling you how many items were removed—not from the disk, only from your project. Need to combine two or more projects? Import one into the other just drag it in , or drag several into a new project.

The imported project appears in its own folder labeled with the source name. Advanced Save Options After Effects projects are saved and overwritten completely separate from the elements they contain. This script takes nested folders with the same name as those closer to the root and merges them, while consolidating duplicate footage.

Project Settings As shown in Figure 1. The Color Settings section includes the project-wide color depth 8, 16, or 32 bits per channel , as well as color management and blend settings. Chapter 11 covers this in ample depth. Audio Settings affects only previews; lowering the rate can save RAM. I never touch this. Instead of opening Project Settings, change Display Style by Ctrl- or Cmd-clicking on the timecode indicator in the timeline; change color depth by Alt- or Opt-clicking the bpc indicator in the Project panel.

This applies to imported image sequences, not compositions. The other Color Settings are elucidated in Chapter Interpret Footage This book generally eschews the practice of walking through After Effects menus, but a well-designed UI helps you think, so focusing on the material in this section allows access to the best analytical tools.

Decisions about how footage is interpreted are both vital and somewhat tedious. This makes the Interpret Footage dialog Figure 1. Alpha interpretation. Frame Rate. Fields and Pulldown. Pixel Aspect Ratio under Other Options. Alpha determines transparency settings, Frame Rate is essential with an image sequence, Fields and Pulldown and Pixel Aspect Ratio under Other Options convert footage optimized for playback.

The Color Management tab purple gets a complete treatment in Chapter The Interpret Footage icon in the Project panel is the easiest way to open the Interpret Footage dialog. Alpha Effective compositing requires a thorough understanding of alpha channels, but only when something goes wrong with them. You can easily avoid these types of problems:. If the alpha channel type is unclear, click Guess in the mini Interpretation dialog that appears when importing footage with alpha.

This often not always yields a correct setting. The giveaway is the contrasting fringe, caused in this case by the failure to remove the black background color premultiplied into edge pixels. The left image is unmultiplied; the right is not. If you are in any doubt about that, set it to Ask User to avoid forgetting to set it properly. More information on alpha channels and how they operate is found in Chapter 3.

After Effects does not interpret an alpha unless you specifically click Guess; if you merely clear the dialog Esc it uses the previous default. Frame Rate I have known many experienced artists to be bitten by careless errors with frame rate, myself included.

You can also override the QuickTime frame rate, which is exactly what After Effects does with footage containing any sort of pulldown see next section. After Effects is precise about how those timing settings are handled. If your true frame rate is The current frame rate and duration as well as other interpretation information is displayed at the top of the Project panel when you select a source clip Figure 1.

The caret to the right of the filename reveals specific compositions in which it is used. Movie formats, which these days usually means QuickTime. A bad frame in a rendered image sequence can typically be quickly isolated and replaced; a bad frame will sink an entire QuickTime movie, sometimes costing hours of rework. Still image formats have more predictable color management settings than QuickTime.

If QuickTime is fast food—convenient but potentially bad for the health of your project, causing bloat and slowness—then image sequences are a home-cooked meal, involving more steps but offering more control over how they are made and consumed. One surprise for the novice is that video images are not typically made up of whole frames containing square pixels like stills.

The result is half the image detail but twice the motion detail. However, on larger or longer-form projects, they will preserve your work more effectively.

If not, the backup option which still works is trial-and-error. Do the following:. Create a Pixel aspect ratio PAR is another compromise intended to maximize image detail while minimizing frame size. The pixels in the image are displayed nonsquare on the broadcast monitor, with extra detail on one axis compensating for its lack on the other. Your computer monitor, of course, displays square pixels, so any clip with a nonsquare PAR will look odd if displayed without compensating for the difference.

Therefore, After Effects includes a toggle below the viewer panels to stretch the footage so that its proportions preview correctly Figure 1. Think again. If subjects look anamorphic—long and skinny—toggle this, and if it looks OK, After Effects is handling it for you; no need to render a square pixel version. Source Formats One oddity of the PNG format is that it specifies that an alpha channel is saved and interpreted as Straight, with no explicit option to change the default, although After Effects lets you override this.

After Effects is capable of importing and exporting a wide array of footage formats, yet only a small subset of these occur regularly in production. Table 1. Which formats will you use most? More on these formats is found in Chapters 11 and 12, which also include information on working with camera raw CRW images.

Photoshop Files Although the PSD format does not offer any type of compression, it has a few unique advantages when used with After Effects. More about why you might want to work with video in Photoshop for its paint tools is included in Chapter 7. More about this feature is found in Chapter 9.

Once your source footage is imported and organized Chapter 4 , the next step is to place it in a composition. Composition Settings Figure 1.

Choose Retain Layer Sizes to ensure that each layer has its own unique anchor point—and is not cropped. My advice is to begin with your plate: the main footage, whether a background shot or a foreground yet to be keyed.

To ensure that composition settings are exactly as they should be with the least effort, try one of the following:. Use a prebuilt project template that includes compositions whose settings match the intended output; you can even create and save your own see Chapter 4. Create a new composition by dragging the plate footage often the background plate to the Create a New. Composition Settings also contains an Advanced tab. This pertains to temporal and spatial settings Chapter 4 and motion blur and 3D Chapter 9.

View Panels and Previews A 2K plate is the minimum typical horizontal film resolution: approximately pixels, or more precisely pixels in width. HD video is pixels horizontal resolution. Resolution and Quality First, keep in mind that you might never work at full resolution, but you should almost always leave layers set to Best quality.

There are several effective ways to speed up previews and interactivity without ever setting a layer to Draft quality, which creates inaccurate previews by rounding off crucial values. I: Working Foundations In rough order of preference, you can. The default setting of 1 plays every other frame Figure 1. To quickly change the display resolution in the Composition panel, use the keyboard shortcuts shown in Table 1.

TABLE 1. The default difference is a Skip setting of 1, which previews every other frame but can be changed to the pattern of your preference. Activate the Hand tool H, spacebar, or middle mouse button to move your view of a clip around. To zoom in and out, you can use.

Zoom tool Z and Alt Opt Z. Only the layer data needed to render that area is calculated and buffered, lengthening RAM previews. With the cursor over a specific area of the frame, hold the Alt Opt key as you zoom to keep that point centered. Want to keep this view? Crop Comp to Region of Interest in the Composition menu. The frame goes black as soon as you make an adjustment.

OpenGL in After Effects can have undesirable side effects; most power users tend to leave it off most of the time. Deactivate Live Update Figure 1.

On by default, this toggle enables real-time update in the viewers as you adjust controls. Deactivate it and updates occur only when you release the mouse. Hold Alt Opt as you make adjustments. With Live Update on, this toggle prevents views from updating. Activate Caps Lock. Enable OpenGL. Enable it, and OpenGLInteractive mode in a viewer panel is accelerated in certain cases, for example, when positioning layers in 3D space. There are two OpenGL options, Interactive and Always On; the former will help you with fast scene setup, especially in a complicated 3D scene, and the latter will give you the look of OpenGL at all times as you work.

I: Working Foundations In general, the more responsive you can make your user interface, the better will be the result because you can make more decisions in a shorter period of time. Just leave time to double-check the result if you are in the habit of disabling screen viewers. Multiprocessing Multiprocessing, which allows After Effects to use all of the processor cores on your system, is disabled by default. Ideally, your system should have more than a couple of processors and at least 4 GB of physical memory RAM.

The great thing about multiprocessing in a bit application is that it actually works. Gone are the days when this option tied up your system while it started and created a bunch of render cores that locked up system resources, forcing a restart. Try it yourself—preview a processor-intensive animation with this option off, then on, and notice the difference when you click 0 on the numeric keypad or with the render time required.

There are a couple of other adjustments you can make to tune this option. Initial results show that After Effects actually runs faster with fewer than the full number of cores on a system with eight or more cores. Reserve two for other applications and see if you get a speed boost.

Note that few other Adobe applications share the same protected memory pool as After Effects. The green line atop the Timeline panel shows which frames are stored for instant playback. This locks away a portion of your drive for use only by After Effects. A blue line shows frames loaded in the Disk Cache Figure 1.

The cache is not saved between After Effects sessions. Loop options Preview panel. Hidden among the playback icons atop Preview is a toggle controlling how previews loop.

Use this to disable looping, or amaze your friends with the ping-pong option. From Current Time Preview panel. Tired of resetting the work area? Toggle this on and previews begin at the current time and roll through to the end of the composition.

Full Screen Preview panel. Self-explanatory and rarely used, but a cool option, no? If you have an external video device attached with its own monitor, you can use it to preview. Third-party output devices, such as Kona and Blackmagic cards, are supported as well. To create a basic gradient background, apply the Ramp effect to a solid layer. You can even insert background or reference footage or a custom gradient background that you created Figure 1.

Several other modes and toggles are available in the viewer panels. Some are familiar from other Adobe applications:. All of these are toggled via a single menu beneath the viewer panel the one that looks like a crosshair. To pull out a guide, choose Show Rulers and then drag from either the horizontal or vertical ruler. To change the origin point 0 on each ruler , drag the crosshair from the corner between the two rulers.

You can. An outline in the color of the selected channel reminds you which channel is displayed Figure 1. Image courtesy of Mark Decena, Kontent Films. Effects: Plug-ins and Animation Presets After Effects contains about default effects plug-ins, and third parties provide plenty more.

Personally, I use less than 20 percent of these effects around 80 percent of the time, and you probably will too. And even cooler, once you thoroughly understand the core effects, you can use them together to do things with After Effects that you might have thought required third-party plug-ins. Opened a project only to discover a warning that some effects are missing, and wondering which ones, and where to find them? You can also choose to display only effects with higher bit depths when working at 16 or 32 bits per channel—see Chapter 11 for more on that.

Save to the Presets folder the default location and your preset will show up when After Effects is started. Here are a few things you might not already know about the process of outputting your work. Convert raw footage by dragging it directly to the Render Queue panel, no composition required one is made for you.

This is a quick and easy way to convert an image sequence to a QuickTime movie, or vice versa. Each Render Queue item has two sets of settings: Render Settings which controls how the composition itself is set when generating the source image data and Output Module which determines how that image data is then written to disk.

Composition corresponds directly to settings in the Timeline panel; here you choose whether to keep or override them. The more complex options, such as Proxy Use, are described in Chapter 4. This is useful for splitting image sequences between sessions see Chapter 4 for details on how to use this feature. Need to render several items to one location?

Set up one item, then add the rest. The location of the first becomes the default. The main decisions here concern Want the best looking half-resolution render? Use Stretch in Output Module, instead of half resolution in Render Settings which typically renders faster. This is an immense time-saver, as each frame is rendered once and written as many times as you like. Several elegant and easily missed problem-solving tools are embedded in output modules:.

Multiple output modules per render queue item avoid the need for multiple passes Figure 1. If you have the previous book in the series, CS6, it is very similar. It goes over a few new techniques such as rotoscoping. It is not a purely step by step book. You will need some know how with After Effects. It really delves into a smattering of different “special effects” and how to incorporate them.

It is for people who want to add to the basics of after effects and really get into some cool things you can do. It is not overly simple, but the author is very clear and concise. You may get lost and have to redo a couple things, but it is a logic step for beginners wanting to get better at fundamental effects. Do not start with this book if you are a complete beginner.

Try CC classroom in a book first. Now the really bad The Kindle edition does not have a download code in the back of the book for the lesson files. I have contacted Peachpit, but they keep saying it is in the back of the book.

They are not. I have used plenty of Kindle books with Peachpit download codes and none exist in this book. I did find the previous book’s CS6 download files after searching online for a while, but I believe they may differ a bit from this new one.

Until I can get the download files the book is only somewhat helpful. I would normally give it 4 stars, but they gave me an incomplete product. When they do I will revise my review. EDIT- They acknowledged the missing download codes finally and sent them to me. They also stated the Kindle version would be updated. The book is worth-while if you don’t have the previous version.

I don’t think there is enough different to warrant a successive purchase. Just look up the changes online to rotoscoping, etc. If you don’t have the previous version or AE is still a bit new to you, then it is worthwhile. Mark packs a lot of great information into this book. I have the CS6 version of this book, and bought this hoping to find new information that applies to the Creative Cloud version of AE.

I haven’t found anything that indicates what is new since the CS6 version, but I’m sure there are nuggets of info awaiting discovery. The CS6 version included footage and other files that have to be downloaded for anyone who purchases this edition of the book. Consequently, I feel the CS6 book is a better value, and thus I can only give this book 4 out of 5 stars. Regardless, I highly recommend this book as a resource and training guide for anyone who wishes to do compositing and VFX work with the Creative Cloud version of After Effects.
