I'd like to make an animation on which one can simply see snow falling down. I know this is easy to do with the CC Snow Effect. But what I didn't find an answer to is: I want to make the snow stay on the ground so that in the end the ground is covered by snow. Any idea or tips how to do this?
Thank's a lot for your comments!
Add a white solid to the scene and animate a mask to simulate snow rising.
This page is full of After Effects snow tutorials.
This Google search has a ton of useful-looking results.
Are you trying to add this to real footage? Or just want it to stay on a false 'ground' layer?
