It Works Like This

Check out this chapter's final movie on this book's DVD to see this project's end result. You'll discover how to create a collage of video that's replaced by other video as the footage moves via columns across the screen. The techniques are as follows:

  1. Use a fast and automated method to put together sequences of footage and create transitions.

  2. Create multiple animated masks to serve as windows on the footage.

  3. Add transparency and richness to the scene by using a blending mode.

  4. Use the new Box Blur effect.

The main footage seen through masked windows

As the columns float across the main footage, other footage appears within the columns.

The company logo appears in the background as footage fades in and out inside the floating columns.
