Disintegration VFX in Adobe After Effects

CreativeCOW presents Disintegration VFX in Adobe After Effects -- Adobe After Effects Tutorial

Join VFX guru Tobias Gleissenberger of Surfaced Studio for a classically energetic Adobe After Effects tutorial combining difference mattes, displacement maps, edge glows, and compositing tricks to dissolve (or explode!) one element in your frame while leaving the rest alone.



In this tutorial I will show you how to create a cool looking Disintegration VFX in Adobe After Effects.

We will first separate our foreground from the background using the the Difference Matte effect. This will allow us to disintegrate only the person in front and not affect the rest of the footage.

We will then create the Disintegration VFX itself, using the Displacement Map and the Extract effects. Then we will composite the person back into the original shot and add some interesting edge glow around the fragments.

Finally, we will blend everything together with some nice colour grading to finish off the final disintegration effect.

Tobias Gleissenberger from Melbourne, Australia got hooked onto film making and visual effects with the rise of YouTube. After watching way too many videos from Freddie Wong, Final Cut King and Video Copilot, he realised that creating impressive VFX was now well within the reach of the indie filmmaker.

Unable to find videos that were both educational AND entertaining, he started to create his own style of 'edutainment' tutorials online. He enjoys sharing his enthusiasm and passion for filmmaking and visual effects with anyone who is willing to put up with his 'special' type of humour.
