Article Focus:
The independent film "Juno" featured one of the most distincitive opening credit sequences in recent memory. It has a wonderful handmade look - which it turned out was created, painstakingly, by hand. Cow leader Simon Bonner shows a much easier way to get all the way there. Even if you haven't seen Juno, this is a great tutorial for creating unique, handcrafted looks, without the pain.

i'll try it out ,

i was just wondering because clips from other tutorials are playing fine, it's just this particular one that won't play.

thanks again
Oliver, why videos are sometimes not seen...

We have found that in our experience, some users use so many pop-up ad blockers and anti-spyware filtering software on their machines that it causes "pre-emptive" filtering on all kinds of content.

Also, in most all the other cases when this is not due to filters, it is a firewall problem.

Unfortunately, neither of these is in our control and so we can do nothing about them. The files are online and they are working as they should.

WICKED MATE! how about the scribble line effect in the credit text? Is there a simple way to do that as well?
Creating the Juno Opening Credits Look
by Simon Bonner
Thanks, Christopher!

The Shadowplay way to create that text (as far as I can gather) is to hand print the letters, photocopy them, trace the copy several times and colour in these tracings, and finally scan them back into the computer before compositing in AE. A quicker, though not as visually interesting, method is to use a similar typeface (like Agent Orange) and play around with the scribble effect. Aharon has a couple of tutorials on that effect here at the Cow.

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

Want to learn how to create advanced visual effects? Learn how to use mocha AE to track your shot and add advanced visual effects to live action footage inside Adobe After Effects. mocha can help you track shots that would be hard to track using traditional 2D point or feature trackers because it is a PLANAR TRACKER. A planar tracker uses planes and textures to track as opposed to points or groups of pixels. This allows the tracker to stay on track even if your shot contains motion blur or a very shallow depth of field. mocha AE comes included with Adobe After Effects and is available since CS3 and there is no reason for you not to use this awesome tool to make it easier for you to track your shot, replace screens or rotoscope!
