This class will teach you how to add texture and a drop shadow to animated 3D objects in Adobe After Effects. I will take you through the process of creating and tweaking a grain texture, using the effects within After Effects, adding a drop shadow and applying it all to an animated 3D layer.
This class is perfect for intermediate learners. Some prior knowledge of After Effects, its 3D renderer, of creating keyframes and manoeuvring the software will be necessary. No previous knowledge of effects or textures, however, is needed.
We will be using effects within After Effects and adding them to an existing asset. You will not need any other software to follow this class apart from Adobe After Effects.
By the end of this class you will have a solid understanding of textures and how to use effects and presets in After Effects.
You will be able to add some creative detail to your animation in After Effects. You will be able to make your animation stand out and give it depth. You can also use this knowledge to create a textured character animation.
