1 min read

In this tutorial we will be making a network tv style Venetian Blinds Transition Effect. This tutorial includes several expressions used to automate the movement of layers, control dozens of adjustment layers, and control rotation from a gradient layer!

Part 1 explains the concept and builds the bulk of the shapes used to create the effect. We also start to get into using gradients to control the layers. Part 2 finishes the gradient control layers and begins fine tuning the look with motion. Part 3 finishes the tutorial with lights, adjustment layers, expressions, camera animation, and final tweaks.

Once you build the out the project, you can use it for anything just by modifying a few layers. Check it out!
