I’ve been making videos for a bit, and even have made some cash with it as well. But I wanted to make a snazzier intro to the videos. I figure I have a subscription to Adobe CC so I might as well learn how to use After Effects and figure out what the hell it does to make something like this.

After futzing around for a few hours, what you see up there is the result. I didn’t record any new video, that’s just a test shot from almost a year ago that I happened to have on my computer where I was working.

I’ll likely have a walkthrough of how I did this. It turned out that it wasn’t too hard at all once I figured out how everything fits together.

But I have to say: “holy crap, this takes all of the CPU to render.” That’s not a surprise, but shit… it’s processor intensive to render.
