Hello Adobe Community,
I was watching a music video by Agnes Obel (danish artist) and was wondering how an effect like that were created, so figured out I would ask you guys how it's made, link to video: Agnes Obel - Familiar (Official Video) - YouTube
Hope some can explain it to a relatively not experienced AE user.
I can't see your example video due to restrictions on the network where I work. Could you share a screenshot or two using the image attachment button on this forum and an explanation of what is happening?
Use CC Ball Action to make the dots. Precomp the layer, moving all attributes. Use it as a luma or luma Inverted Matte for your video. Put an adjustment layer on top of everything and add a Glow effect.
And if this standard After Effects vocabulary that EVERYONE uses sounds a bit like Greek to you, you've got some learnin' to do!
