Tutorial: Parallax in After Effects

0

Hey guys, Eric here with the first CG Chatter video tutorial! You can view it on YouTube here.

I always love adding depth to animations, even (and perhaps especially) ones with flat assets, because of the added feeling of immersion it can bring. In this video I walk through what parallax is and some techniques for achieving it in After Effects. Topics include layer ordering in Photoshop, basic setup of a 2.5D scene in After Effects using 2D layers and a 3D camera, and some pitfalls to watch out for.

If you have any follow-up questions, I’d be happy to try and answer them in the comments below or on YouTube. Thanks for watching!
