AE Tutorial: Verizon Fios

In watching pre-season baseball on NY’s local SNY, I am getting the same commercials quite often (work those sponsors hard!) and so after a while, it got on my brain. As I’ve mentioned before, when you work for Adobe, you tend to watch television in a different way than many people. So, when I see the Verizon Fios commercial again and again, I think of the ideas that I can communicate with Adobe products – in this case After Effects.

The idea of this project is that you can make one little composition and then duplicate it to make simple changes to text to create a larger commercial.  This project also shows about nesting compositions – taking one composition and putting it in another.  This is a simple yet powerful concept that people often don’t think about.  There is also some track matting, and layerstyle work that is part of this comp.  I will try to write up the step-by-step directions, but until then, here are the project files for you to download and take a look at.  The download is about 2MB.

The sample video seems to be down. I’ve noticed this with one or two others that you’ve posted to the blog – not sure why it happens…

[DR – Dave, thanks for taking the time to look. I’ve played the video on the site no problem. I’m using Firefox on a Mac and PC. Try another browser or let me know what else could be going on. ]
