This is a cool video I made from a tutorial that I found on Video Copilot that can be found at [link]
I created a Smokey portal effect with turbulent Particles coming out of it. I start with a background video and then added the video of the woman walking away from a green screen. I used a tiny smoke video and duplicated it like 25 times and rotated it in all kinds of directions to get to portal effect and then I got rid of the green screen in the woman’s video and placed the smoke behind the woman. After that I added some lens flares and there you have it. I know it was a short video but I learned a lot of things making it.
The software I used is Adobe After Effects CS5 and the only plugin that was bought was the Optical flares plugin. All the rest are free plugins that come with the software.
The tutorial was done by Andrew Kramer. He is the owner of the company and the website. All the videos and picture from the video were provided by Andrew Kramer and come with the tutorial and can be found here [link]
