Hey all. Yesterday is literally my first day using After Effects, so I'm still a *huge* noob. I made this today - it's supposed to be a portal from Portal 2 being shot out of a portal gun in first person. I'm not really satisfied with how it turned out though. Any suggestions? And yes, I know that it would probably look better if I used a camera other than the one built into my phone. At the moment though my phone is all I have, so I'm using that for now.
The portal is dark. You should consider making it a lot brighter.
Try Video Copilot's Saber plugin. An oval mask with it would make a nice portal.
Had never heard of that until now. Thanks so much, really helps!
