Read Time: 1 min

In this tutorial you'll be learning how to create a realistically animated and composited helicopter
from a 2D image. We'll cover how to extract the helicopter from the background using Photoshop before diving into After Effects to get started. In After Effects we'll look at how to create your own rotor blades for the helicopter, keyframe animation, tracking, and key compositing techniques to integrate the helicopter seamlessly into our footage.

Beyond just the tutorial, I'll be discussing workflow tips, and topics that are important to understand as a compositor and/or visual effects artist.
