hey.....You have inspired me greatly with this tutorial....I have been working on a slide show for about a week.....I did'nt know about some of the things you did......I edited each Picture individual.....with copy and paste. and as far as how long it took you to do that slide show in the end it was about 3 mins. Thank you sooo much for this wow

OMG! She is beautiful! I'm not interested in the tutorial and I only clicked it, so I can see her face. I'm talking about the first girl who comes out in the video beginning.

Jatin,
When given options during the save process, select "Optimized" and "Max quality".
Do not choose progressive. This ensures the best quality image and highest compatibility with programs ;D

Use VLC player (If your video player doesn't have the following option)

SLow your play rate down. W' VLC you can do this using the {} to speed up or slow down your playback speed.
I personally need to run most tuts at 1.6x speed, which is right under psycho-chipmunk voice speed.

If you need to repeat something, its easy to drag the slider back a few seconds, and adjust speed as needed.

Hey I'm having a problem. Every time I go through the steps and try to sequence the layers nothing happens. I even tried it by dragging the images on to the composition button and doing it that way but it still didn't work. The layers are still taking up the whole time frame and not overlapping can someone please help?
Antonio

i do everything exactly like you (except the photoshop part, i edited the pictures in lightroom, i didnt want to crop) and the pictures keep importing with a weird color saturation. idk if this has to do with the prophoto rgb setting i exported them with, or if theres a setting that i'm looking at in after effects. also same thing happens in premiere pro cs5 and i'd much rather do the slide show in premiere if you can help me on that one too.

thank you

Hi!

Hah, continuity error.

At 3:24, There's a folder called '720x480'
At 3:50, It's gone.

I realize this is because you would have
1. Recorded a few times
2. Practiced the tutorial beforehand
3. And deleted the folder because it's not supposed to be there.
Juan david
06/20/2011
hello, first to congratulate you for the tutorials help a lot, I wanted to ask if you can pass the projects carried out in AE to Premiere without having to preprocess the project because I do not know how to do that

The CC Composite effect is a good idea in avoiding to use a copy of the original image for that fade-in effect. This is a very helpful tutorial and has inspired me more to bring my skills in After Effects to next level as you have said. Thanks Andrew.

Well, that depends. Mostly of people wants to learn simple things on his favorite application, but don't have any idea about the basics of digital video. In the other side, if you want to go pro, is really helpfull to have a programatic learning curve (like an editing class).

I can totally relate to what you say. It's ridiculous how much they make us pay for this kind of training, when the best training we can find online for free. You just have to be curious and eager to learn. It's a thousand times better!!
Thank you Mr Kramer!!! ^_^

What if I wanted to make all the slides come in on a 3D plane, is there a quick way to move them all on a 3D equal distant formula?

And I would also like the background to change colors as the slides fly in.

Hey,
Nice tutorial. I was wondering how you would tweak the process to do quick time lapse sequences from still images.
Thanks

It scares me how fast you can work when you repeat the actions at the end. lol. Nice!!
Damien

Since this tutorial is a bit old, Photoshop has changed a bit. If you are batch processing images, you may find more success going to "File -> Scripts -> Image Processor".

Follow all the same steps outlined by Andrew, except makes sure to check "Save as JPEG", "Resize to Fit" and put "800" in the W box and "600" in the H box. Hit "Run" and it will process your images just like Andrew's action used to under old Photoshop versions.

Hope this helps!

Hi, I have the same problem as Melanie "The .jpg save window comes up for each picture when you run a batch. In the tutorial you do not tell how to automate it so I have to tell it the save quality for each photo in the photoshop batch. I'm sure there is a way around it" ?? The tut is fantastic, I love watching all of them. U are the best ! Thank you.

voices, when you have triple digit files that are numbered and you want then to stay in order, all your numbers need to be triple digits.

i.e., if you top number is 140, then number 1 needs to be listed as 001. Number 10 needs to be 010.

Your computer sees 1, then 10, then 100, etc. If you make all numbers three digits, it will count 001, 002, 003, etc.

Using Photoshop CS3 when I run the automated resize script it pauses after each image to ask what compression I want the .JPGs to have.

How do I automate that?

Great tutorial!

Just one question
I have about 140 pictures that i have in numerical order that need to be in that order for the film. When i drag them into AE they are put into alphabetical order with numbers like 1,10,100,101,110,111,112 etc. How do i get those to be in true numerical order 1,2,3,4?

Thanks
