After Effects Tutorial: Recylcling Presets and adding a blur

I’m visiting the Savannah airport and thought to upload a quick blog entry. This quick After Effects project/tutorial is based on the simple idea of using one of the many blurs within After Effects to create entirely new motion backgrounds.


I’m attaching the After Effects project file, but none of you will be able to access it for a couple of weeks. Why? Well, I’ve moved to CS4 and since it is a version, it will not open in After Effects CS3. Still, you can watch the basic video here and figure out what I did. I used the Cinders preset for all of them. The last 10 second bit is me using one of the versions and incorporating it into a real-world animation.

Fascinating how different these different filters are right?

Thanks – it looks cool!

Should we infer from your post that we are still a couple weeks away from CS4 shipping?

I’m just looking forward to all the new stuff!

[DR – whoops! well you can see that I’m behind on posting comments. As of October 15th, 2008, Adobe Creative Suite 4 is shipping.]
