I am summarizing information found in two Adobe guides: one on Blend Modes in Photoshop and the other about Using them in Premiere. I am excluding all blend options not available in Premiere. Before we start, Adobe uses the following naming conventions to describe the individual layers, as well as the opacity operation itself.

Sometimes due to the apparent complexity of what can be achieved in it, or the need for learning a few new paradigms, it can be one of those apps you tell yourself “I’ll get around to later”. But you don’t need to know how to make complex animations in it to get started. Instead focus on being able to do simple animated lower thirds, better looking green-screen composites or other things, as reason enough to get started with it. Tracking. VFX Featurette. The Ultimate History of CGI in Film. 18 Groundbreaking CGI effects Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) is one of many tools that talented artists and filmmakers use to help better tell their stories.

The Ultimate History of CGI in Film

CGI is not created by the push of some magic button. It is the culmination of careful thought, design, experimentation and the pure creativity of artists. The impossible becomes reality and when done well, evokes wonder and awe as it transports the audience deeper into the story… Let’s quickly clarify the difference between CGI and computer animation. The history of CGI goes back to the 1950’s, when mechanical computers were repurposed to create patterns onto animation cels which were then incorporated into a feature film. Thanks to the amazing and comprehensive website COMPUTER ANIMATION HISTORY-CGI over 250 examples of the first instances of every CGI method are chronicled with video examples covering the last 60+ years.

After Effects Classic Course: 3D Camera Tracking by Chris and Trish Meyer. A classic visual effects job is to place a place one planar object (such as a new sign, a video screen, etc.) onto another planar object (such as a wall, a laptop, a cell phone, etc.) while either the camera, the target object, or both are moving.

After Effects Classic Course: 3D Camera Tracking by Chris and Trish Meyer

This requires some form of tracking. In the early days of After Effects we had corner pin tracking, where you tracked the four corners of the target, and warped the new object to fit inside those tracked points. The problem often was that those four points had their own individual jitter and other inaccuracies, causing the pinned object to wobble. Then when mocha was added to After Effects, it brought a more sophisticated idea of tracking a plane with the idea it was supposed to be rigid (not rubbery with each corner moving individually), and calculating the motion, scale, rotation, and skew of that plane.

Below are a series of five movies we created back in 2012 that demonstrated the workflow, including advanced compositing tricks. Boris FX. Youtube.
