MILG5 – Official Tutorial List

Posted on 17. Nov, 2008 by in Blog

Hello my friends. We are getting closer and closer to finally releasing MILG5 as promissed. I thought that I could share the official tutorial list with you, so here I go:

01. Gyro

Create a cool-looking gyroscopic element completely within After Tea Cups With Lids Amber Rings Wholesale Tea Trays Toddler Sleeping Bags Effects. Inspired by the work of Mark Coleran, this tutorial includes extensive use of Shape Layers, parenting and simple expressions to create a technical look using almost no keyframes.

02. Form Face

Create a slick push pin toy effect as seen in the Radiohead “House of Cards” video. This tutorial shows you how to combine regular footage with Trapcode’s popular Form plug-in to create an eye-popping 3D effect.

03. Retro Terminal

Create a reusable retro-style computer terminal animation. Harness the power of expressions, including some undocumented features to change the text content and look on the fly. Learn how to turn a simple typewriter effect into realistic DOS-style computer readout.

04. Screenify

Create a realistic and detailed Jumbotron-style video screen. This tutorial includes must-know keying techniques, tips on creating volumetric lights and presets, and ingenious workflow for creating complex looks on a single layer using the CC Composite effect. The advanced CE Screenify effect is also included in the download exclusively for Making It Look Great 5 viewers.

05. Butterfly Man

Create the stylish effect where a character suddenly bursts into hundreds of butterflies. In this lesson learn how to create a smart butterfly rig using Trapcode 3D Stroke, control Trapcode Particular particles using dispersion maps, build volumetric backlighting using Trapcode Lux and use the amazing Avidion MotionGrabber effect (not included with the download) to automatically track a layer’s alpha channel.

06. Speed Grading

Master fast and precise color correction techniques using standard After Effects tools including Colorama and CC Composite. In this tutorial learn how to fine tune a look using the Colorama effect as a range selection tool, allowing adjustments to specific aspects of the footage.

07. Spycam

Create an infinitely zooming spycam look. This tutorial starts with basic techniques for creating a simple slide show then covers amazing, time-saving techniques for automating transitions between layers using expressions.

08. Subtitles

Create automated subtitles based on layer markers. This short tutorial demonstrates how to automate subtitle creation.

09. Bloody Text

Create a realistic dripping blood effect without using keyframes or expressions. This lesson includes a great study of precomposing and demonstrates how to use a Photoshop-style brush with the CC Time Blend effect to paint text onto the screen.

10. Discorama

Create a funky disco-style animation based totally on sound. This lesson includes a slick technique for creating running lights using Trapcode Form together with the Colorama effect, basic camera movement, techniques using the CC Time Blend and Wave Warp effects and plenty of simple expressions.

More details will be available shortly in the upcoming free introduction video, so stay tuned.

    In previous MILG’s most of the tutorials required Zaxwerks plugins. How about this edition, apart from Trapcode, do they require other 3rd party plugins?

    Yes, Finally you did this my friend. My sincere congratulations George ;) Keep it UP
    PS: All AE users including Gurus must have this release of MILG

    There’s no Zaxwerks involved. It’s all in the tutorial descriptions and in the previous blog posts on this subject.

    Sounds pretty cool….shame I can only do a few of the things on there.

    I don’t have Form or lux….so I think it isnt really worth it unless you want to use everything…sorry mate :(

    Can’t wait!
    Looks like you have some fun insights.
    I know how to do all of this- but its your workflows that always blow my mind. Your use of expressions and tricks inspire the hell out of me.

  28. Maltaannon

    26. Nov, 2008

    Thats exactly the point here. Most of the effects are well known, and I decided to reinvent the wheel if you know what I mean.
