Yanobox plug-ins for After Effects

I’ve found this two cool plug-ins for After Effects and they have impressed me a lot.

Yanobox has created two plug-ins: Nodes and Motype.

With Nodes you can animate objects and relationships through Nodes and Lines, with a cool and smooth look. Instead, Motype let you animate a text with a revolutionary way. The only bad thing?, It’s only for Mac users. I Hope some day will be able to multi-platform.

So, now check out the preview of the plug-ins and tell me what do you think.

Tutorial: Make a large crowd in your videos – AE Basix

In this tutorial from AEtuts+, James Whiffin explains 5 different basic ways to create a large crowd in your videos. Yes this is a 5 in1 tutorial!

The methods that explain James there are:

  • Simple Masking: It’s a tedious technique but is good for short clips.
  • Rotoscoping: With CS5 It’s a nice technique, but you will need a good Hardware for medium-large clips
  • Difference Matting: Good technique but you can find a good place to shot and control the Matte effects
  • Chroma Keying: I love this technique, although you will be more accurate than others is really amazing. Light is the Key, you get it? :D
  • Camera Technique: This is really powerfull with a good use of the Tracker and Stabilize Motion.

Enjoy duplicating friends and If you have free time you’ll can make a video like this.
