Not sure if I already asked, but I don't have an answer, so I was wondering how to do a ripple or ray gun effect in Premiere Pro CS6. Such as an alien shooting a beam. What general effect in Premiere or plugin can help me with this. Please and Thanks! I am glad people like you take your time to read this!
Best way is for you to check out an AEFX 'tracking" tutorial for full understanding.
IN short. AEFX has the capability to track points on a moving subject eg a swinging hand holding a sabre sword.
Then one can attach the object ( sabre sword) to the point on the hand and it will follow ( track with) the hand movement.
