Just a quick question, you used real grenades hanging from sting to film a grenade effect, is there a way of using a still pic to achieve the same effect?

I'm not sure about the gazillion dollars :P but he/they have done actual professional stuff. Read the "about us" at the bottom of the main tutorials page. Title sequences for Fringe and the Star Trek movie, and work with J.J. Abrams (which would be Star Trek, but I'm assuming other projects as well.)

Yes Oliver's right, they make a gazillion dollars and stuff

Yeah, those fragmentation grenades do have names, chief. In order of appearance: F1, M61, and M67. I see what you did there, using the Soviet F1 for the tutorial, subtly jamming your communist propaganda down people's wind pipes, and then trying to act like you don't know the difference. Nice try commie, nice try.

WoW, I have just found this website and all of the stuff is just great!! I dont know anything about AE but I really want to learn and this is just going to help me sooo much, biggest confusion for me atm is all them compositions....I've been using PS for 4 years now and recently I have started to play around with video in Premier so introducing after effects will just add another dimension to my work.

Keep up the good work and thanks!!!

Not sure I understand why you had to set up everything in 3D? Couldn't you just have comped the grenade over the footage in 2D and keyframed it's position? Would have given very similar results, no?

im pretty new to this can some body explain the point of motion trking(sorry for bad english its not my first lenguage)
BALIKA14
04/24/2012
The point of motion tracking is to solve the camera movement,so when you export the camera data to any otheer program,the camera in that other program will move exactly in the same way as the one in the live footage.(if its well tracked!)

luke guyer
02/04/2012
for the shadow behind to hand, couldn't u just duplicate the grenade footage, fill it with a black solid, then put a gaussian blur on it or something, and lower the opacity? It would stay with the grenade since it would already be tracked. Just a suggestion :)

Hey man you've taught me a lot about after effects, and I'm glad you have. I've also bought much of your composited material. It's helped me a lot with my projects. I think you are great for sharing your knowledge. You've actually inspired me to do the same. I run a website, and right now the sub-site is doing better. This is because I'm posting all of my work in my Studio work section. And I have, here's where you come in, a tutorial section. It's going to have a beginner to expert ladder you can follow. If it does well I'll charge
