Time Lapse - Adobe After Effects

While reading a magazine i saw something about Adobe After Effects. It's kind of like Photoshop for videos.

It was super complicated at first.

Then little by little i learned how to use it. I also watched several How-To video's on YouTube.

I still only know a tiny bit but it has great potential. It has the ability to create videos with lightsaber fights and other amazing effects.

So here's what i created, no special effects, just simple camera movements.

  • I first created a simple intro.
  • Then i added the music.
  • Then i added some of the time lapse videos i made.
  • Then was able to create motion using a camera tool and changing the zoom and position.

It takes a while, you need a fast computer and it's a bit of a pain, but i plan on using it a lot more.

This is what it looked like when i was all done. The list of videos are on the left and at the bottom are all the effects and timelines of when they happen.
