Digital Video / After Effects Abuser Group

 After Effects Abuser Group - Pushing Pixels Beyond . . .   

Tuesday, August 26

Movie Goofs - Pirates of the Caribbean

They missed it: A crew member in dark glasses wearing a cowboy hat in the shot. Terry Syndergaard will not only show how to remove the offending figure but also show how he put his own piratey self in the shot... This could involve showing bezier curve refinements and control, combining arrow tool with the vector changer whatchamacallit tool. (Convert vertex tool)

After Effects CC 2014 new additions

Key Cleaner and Advanced Spill Suppressor: For Bad Green Screen Footage 
Sometimes you can't go back to re-shoot green screen that had bad lighting or noisy compression . Bonnie Erdrich will show how to use these new features to save that precious shot with ease and simplicity.

After Effects Text Templates that Update Live in Premiere Pro 
We will continue from Mike McGready's excellent Premiere presentation for his Web Vid group this month where he showed how you can import a template from After Effects. Bonnie will show how you can toss your fears about After Effects type creation and make & save your own template for use in Premiere Pro as a preset that can be altered.

Flexible Masking Options and Premiere Pro Interchange
We will show how you can apply a mask to a portion of a clip and blend it with the original video layer, bypassing the shortcomings of Adjustment layers.

Typekit Fonts - Not just for Web anymore
Maybe you've been busy and haven't had a chance to explore how to use the Typekit fonts. Bonnie will show you how to integrate them with your other applications the first time, and the fun and ease of using them.

Tips and Tricks

If time permits, Terry will share some of the discoveries he's made while working on projects. It's mostly stuff necessitated by pushing the limits of what's possible, and getting himself in trouble.


PARKING PERMIT - PRINT OUT and hang from mirror
