Go behind the scenes as we show you how our Deconstructing Series opens were created. We walk you though the entire process step by step and create dust and a flickering film projector light in Adobe After Effects using Trapcode Particular, optical flares, and simple wiggle expressions.
The anatomy of video contains a wide variety of parts—some remain hidden, right before the viewers’ eyes. Pixels, like cells of the body, work together, combining to make the overall image. Chroma subsampling is the DNA of color information in the pixels of a video image. It’s a small part of each individual frame, but one that plays a major role in the construction of the overall clip of footage.
You've got a great script; you've assembled a superb cast and crew (most of whom may be you) and quality equipment – everything you need to make your video dreams come true – well, almost. In your mind’s eye you watch production values soar, with magnificent aerials over snowcapped mountains and seemingly bottomless canyons, or that breathtaking opening crane shot over tropical beaches and turquoise blue waters.
