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.
Update: I’ve now posted the step-by-step instructions for you to download.
