Chapter 13. Sci-Fi Storm
Brick, Cloth, Fire, Granite, Rain, Reptilian, Rock, Snow, Sparks, Veined Marble, Weave, Wood Grain, and Wooden Planks. What do these things have in common? They're all realistic and very malleable surfaces you can instantly create and animate with just a solid layer in After Effects. Yes, only a solid layer in After Effectsoh, and you'll also need a group of effects provided by Boris FX in its Continuum Complete collection
Effects that generate imagery and textures, like the Boris FX effects listed here and some of the Render effects in After Effects, are fun to work with because they enable you to create virtually an entire world with very little effort. This chapter shows you how to create a storm-riddled planet and a steel box with a combination of effects that are native to After Effects and effects provided by Boris FX.
