Tutorial Notes:
Special Note: EXPERIMENT! Be sure to play with the matte layer by changing the size of the bugs and the opacity to increase or decrease the displacement amount. This way you can make some bugs that extrude more and others less.

You should do a video on how to make the moving skull affect, like Two-Face or Ghost Rider. I'm using AAE and i'd like to see something of that nature.

Great tutorials, i've just found that im having one problem, my matte for the bug is not in sync with the glass filter, both follow the same bath but the bug matte is further behind than the glass layer, even though their moving at the same speed.

Hi there,
Kramer, you are owesome. I really think you´re tutorials helped me find the job i have. But I can´t do this tutorial. When I use the CCS glass on the worm it doesn´t become like it is behind the skin.It stays like a white circle. I am using a photo instead of a video. is that the problem?Whats wrong?Probably you can´t answer my question if you are not with me, but anyway, Thank you.
