The rest of it doesn’t matter to me at all. —Gary Elkerton, Australian surfer Composite in After Effects T his is a book about visual effects compositing. If you use Adobe After Effects, the goal is to help you create believable, fantastic moving images from elements that were not shot together, and to do it with the least possible effort. This first section of the book focuses on effortlessness, offering a jump-start (if you’re new) or a refresher (if you’re already an After Effects artist) on the After Effects workflow.
