Is there a preferred way to add muzzle flashes in a scene involving gunfire? I've seen a number of tutorials online which basically say "just go find some flame elements and add them in." Wondering if this is actually the way to go.
I'm looking at videocopilot.net, they have an element pack (VIDEO COPILOT | After Effects Tutorials, Plug-ins and Stock Footage for Post Production Professionals) but I wondered if there were other options available.
Stock foorage is the way to go. Motion track the muzzle then attach scale and use add or screen blend mode.
That seems to be the consensus. Thanks for the quick reply!
