I've been learning After Effects for several months and I have to say its a blast. I'm already in projects where they require special effects, and from months of just teaching myself
I'm almost finally able to achieve any effect I want, for example: a bomb made to implode the earth's core with a black hole (a still picture from an upcoming super hero comedy series
Anyways, I'm now learning more advanced color balance, I always knew the basics and I just go with what looks good (which is how it usually works), but I never quite understood. Like curves.
I watch tutorials and see people use a mix of colors to get the color they want. Honestly I don't know my colors in that way, is there a chart guide for color correction?
For the colors? Please help, this is something I want to go more in depth with and learn.
In addition to Alexis's book, I strongly recommend the color chapters of Mark Christiansen's After Effects Studio Techniques book.
Thank you Both for your help, I will read these chapters and see what I can learn, this is just what I needed!
