David Simons is a 28-year fellow at Adobe, if you count the first three years at CoSA where he created After Effects. His creation has dominated the post-production world since its inception and has been the crucible for compositing for thousands of productions from indie one-offs to the biggest films and television shows around. The Academy Sci-Tech award was given to After Effects and Photoshop this year in recognition of those contributions to film and TV, and I was given the opportunity to speak with David after his win.

X-Particles Moose Skull

X-Particles advection is a simple task, yet can yield some incredible visuals. Today I wanted to share with you my process for creating a Moose Skull animation that was posted on my Instagram.

Here is the original animation if you have not seen it yet.

The music in this piece for those interested was from Eveningland Music. The track is called Lost Time. Playing with X-Particles can be fun and therapeutic. I managed to knock this animation out fairly quickly in roughly half a day. This Continue reading “X-Particles Moose Skull”

Classic Course: Channel Mixer

Continuing our exploration of a few choice Channel Operation effects, we look at the initially daunting Channel Mixer.

In short, the Channel Mixer allows you to create a custom mix of the red, green, and blue channel information, and use that mix to replace a channel’s normal information – such as mixing some of the green channel’s values into the red channel to enhance it.

Channel Mixer also has a Monochrome switch, converting it into a powerful grayscale mixer. All of this is demonstrated in the video below:

These movies previously appeared in our Insight Into Effects course on Lynda. Continue reading “Classic Course: Channel Mixer”
