Our first video published on youtube using after effects.
The purpose of this video is to practice our acting skills, direction and video editing skills.
Yup there are still some glitches on this video, especially the shaky shots. And the timing of the singer’s mouth is not that good. It took me 2 hours to make this final render.
The problem I encountered with after effects cs4 is that it’s too heavy for our laptop. I can only preview the video easily when it’s fully rendered. I rendered the video twice, the first one took me 40 minutes to finish, then this second one is 2 hours. I used an asus laptop with 4GB RAM.
But what’s great about the software is that it produces great effects and it gives me freedom to do whatever I wanted on the video. It’s an adobe photoshop video version for me.
Any comments, suggestions, feedback for the video is welcome. Maybe you can suggest the best tutorial to remove the shaky video? CS4 doesn’t have the warp stabilizer yet, so I used the motion stabilizer, but it didn’t work well. And also, is there any way that I can optimize cs4’s performance? It’s just too slow.
Kodus for the actor and actress Aljer, and Hazel. They are awesome and thanks for their cooperation. More projects and experiments soon so stay tuned!
