Moving Frames Montage – Adobe After Effects tutorial

Click to tweet? — http://clicktotweet.com/2fGj9

This is how to make a cool montage that slides and moves around. It’s basically a ripoff of the opening to parks and recreation. I’ll show you the basics and I’m sure you can do the rest. It’s pretty simple once you picture the whole thing as one big board of videos and you move a camera around it. Not that I know exactly what parks and rec did but I’m very sure that’s how it was done.

If you have any problems just let me know in the comments or tweet at me @ECAbrams 🙂

Click to tweet? —

So you want to learn about the Audio Waveform Effect in Adobe After Effects? I want to learn how many times I can put the work effect into this description. What effect would that have? A complete turn off is what.

The audio waveform will display the wave form of your audio as a dumb pink line till you figure out how to use the effect so hopefully if you follow this tutorial we can make that happen for you. Or not I don’t know.

And if you want to try something else have a look at the audio SPECTRUM effect here: http://youtu.be/gLI0ovDyodw

Ah the old audio spectrum. It sure looks like garbage when you start but oh boy can it really sing. It can’t actually. But if you can sing it can interpret those frequencies and show them as bars. It’ll be rad.

Did you want to learn about the audio waveform instead? Well go here: http://youtu.be/uPymoWv6Q00
