These tools and effects include CC Sphere, CC Split 2, Mesh Warp and Time Remapping. We will also set up some light animation "rigging" using expressions and null objects. This is an "eye-opening" tutorial for those looking to animate beyond the basic functionality of AE.Read More…

    Using Flashes to Create Light That Looks NaturalNaturalck prelg
    Back in college, I was taught there were two ways to light a subject with strobes or flashes. You can make the light part of the story of the image, showing how interesting and dynamic it is. On the other hand, you can blend your lighting in and make it appear completely natural. Both tactics are challenging to do well, but after following this tutorial, you should have a better handle on recreating natural light with flashes.Read More…

In this tutorial I will be using an Arduino board to make a simple circuit, one that can turn on a LED light. Using some more basic code I will make the same LED light blink. Finally, I will add a push-button and use it to speed up the blinking. Some of the diagrams in this article were developed using the Fritzing program.Read More…
