Advanced Matte with Set Matte Effect in After Effects

Set Matte Versus Track Matte

Set-Matte is a more versatile and “advanced” way to get the most out of working with mattes.

Mike Ridolfi from Mobox Graphics shows you how to use the built in Set-Matte effect inside After Effects to set mattes for multiple layers without relying on track mattes.  This makes for a slimmer project file when working with multiple mattes. He discusses the different types of mattes too; such as alpha matte, alpha inverted matte, luma matte, and luma inverted matte.

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? 😀
  • Camera Technique: This is really powerfull with a good use of the Tracker and Stabilize Motion.
