A new quarter begins at ABC Adult School. Same classes for me – Photoshop for After Effects, After Effects CS5, InDesign, Final Cut Pro.
Goal – a second movie. Basketball theme. Why basketball? Very different from the pictorial travelogue in “All Roads Lead To Thailand.”
- Animating more action figures
- Innovative text
- Dynamic techniques
- Eye-popping graphics
- Timely topic that’s new to me requiring research
- Topic of interest to a larger audience
- Masking multiple channels of the same color spectrum to isolate hair, shadows, leaves, tiny details that could be lost in conventional masking.
- Selecting layers, then masking them as one black/white image.
- Shape layers vs. masked layers
- Multiplying, then animating shape layers
- Create new movie!!
- In this class I’m working with a new student. The class is getting too large for the instructor & assistant to get to all students who may need basic help. Most of the old timers have unofficially paired ourselves with a new student. Helps us all move along more smoothly and reinforces what returning students have learned.
- Goal – pass certification
