Transcript: The tools of After Effects By Adrian Araujo Full Spectrum Color The use of color in film is often an overlooked feature. Colors can help set a tone or try to display an emotion if used correctly which can help make the overall quality of your work better. There are multiple ways to deal with color and many helpful tools that can really let you get the look you want in your work. one of the best tools to use in video editing, color keying is a great way of putting objects or people in whatever places you desire so long as you have a green screen and suitable lighting. Color keying also helps with cost reduction as you wont have to spend as much money as you would to go to certain locations. Be anywhere Color Keying The use of isolating colors is one of the best ways to get a color to stand out more than the rest. You can choose to fully isolate a color to the point where its the only one you see if you want to really emphasize it, or you can just have it where one color is more prominent than the rest so its not just black and white Isolating colors The content aware tool is extremely helpful when there is that one thing in your film that you really wish you could make disappear. With the use of Adobe's smart AI you can simply mark what you want gone in a video composition and render it out as if there was never anything there. Content aware allows filmmakers to not have to worry so much about whats in their shot as it can be removed in post-production. Remove those unwanted objects! Content Aware another way to use pen points is to create masks around certain objects. This is great if you want to apply an effect to the background only while keeping your main subject of the video untouched. Fast Mask Masking The shape tool is going to be your best friend when it comes to animation as it allows you to be as creative as your mind lets you. With the use of shape tools you can curve, distort, expand, change the hue or just make something completely different to use for animation. It is one of the most vital tools because you can use it in conjunction with other visual effects to enhance your creation. Stay in shape Animation The shape tool comes with its own set of effects that you can fully adjust. The stroke is one of the easier ones yet still adds a lot of depth to certain shapes depending on how much change the width too. Color strokes With the use of an effect called element 3d, you can really add more depth to your shapes and create almost life like models with the use of textures. Making your shapes three dimensional also makes your animations seem more lively and not as flat as two dimensional ones would and that is what can really turn a good animation to a great one 3D Animation

Now you can make any subject more engaging and memorable
