Notes on Composition

Post by SlapHappy Bunny » Sun Sep 03, 2006 1:48 pm

I kind of want to know this for future work on a project I'm doing. I've read that Adobe After Affects is used for the composition of images and whatnot (there was a great example in an animation book I read). So, what program will the Wolf staff be using?

I really just want as much info on film composition that I can possibly get. Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure it's After Effects that the compositors are using, though I'm not 100% positive... 90% positive, I think I can claim.
Zib, go suffer for your art.

Wait. 20 and 20 and 20 is not 50!

Using Adobe After Effects 7.0 to be precise. Yet, I also use Adobe PhotoShop Elements for cleaning up animation and making layers of backgrounds and such (Yes, I am working. >>;; ). If you would really like more specific information, I'm always here.

Adobe makes some of the best consumer quality software and has a good interface (some people dislike it, but they're being bums). So, if you want to get into compositing, I actually suggest poking with Premiere Pro first because most compositions end up in Premiere Pro after they are complete. Yes, I know it's called 'After Effects', but I'm working backwards for obvious reasons.
