Missing the past couple of weeks of classes has made it quite a challenge to catch up on the various projects. Still trying to come up with workable ideas for the “Fire” project. To make a video that can also form part of an installation - - - well, so far, simple, interesting and achievable solutions have eluded me!
However, After Effects looks like it is going to be quite a bit of fun. As with all new software programs, learning the basics has its usual pit falls. I still think mastering the fundamentals is achievable, despite the annoyance that Adobe is inconsistent with their keyboard short cuts and menu layout throughout the CS4/CS5 suite. Not to be daunted and to gain some practise, I put together this 15 second AE sequence as a challenge – enjoy!
