Chapter 16. Fast and Easy Lighting

One of the most interesting aspects of light is how it interacts with objects, causing them to cast shadows and creating a sense of space. The most effective lighting programs are generally higher-end 3D modeling applications, but this chapter will show you how to obtain dramatic results using After Effects and a few third-party effects.

In this chapter, you'll develop a movie promo for an independent film named Alvarez & Cruz. You'll use a clip from the movie as a background both to serve as a background texture and to give the viewer a glimpse of the film. You'll accent the screen with light and shadows as the 3D title flies in from behind the viewer.
