Express Yourself With Numbers! An After Effects Tutorial

Videos with number animations look slick. Why just display a static number or percentage on screen when you can have an animation scrolling the numbers up to your target number?? You can create many numeric animations efficiently with just one layer in your composition by applying the Slider Control effect and using an expression.

Makin' Starfields: Create presets for 2D, 360 and 3D stars

Makin' Starfields: Create presets for 2D, 360 and 3D stars

In this tutorial, I take a look at generating stars in Adobe After Effects. We start with a simple 2D starfield, but then use Fractal Noise to add atmospheric distortion (twinkling) and then I show how to save this effect as a preset, so it becomes really easy to reuse. Next, I take a look at wrapping those 2D stars around the inside of a Sphere to create a 360 starfield.
