Create a Leaf Growing Network TV ID


Network TV ID's are usually a 5 or 10 second piece that pleasantly announces the channel's logo. In this tutorial you will learn how to create this real-world, network ID-style scene for your logo or type treatment using After Effects, Trapcode Particular, and stock images.

Some techniques covered will be:

  • using the layer emitter and custom particles in Particular to create growing leaves
  • using "wiggle" and "random" expressions to create wind movement in leaves
  • simple 3D AE camera use with Depth of Field (DOF) and wiggle for handheld feel.
  • using a "length" expression to tie the DOF Focus point to a NULL for easy animation
  • color grading with blend modes and overlay effects

Requirement: Trapcode Particular Plugin (download free trial here)
