Page turn Document Transcript

  • 1. Lucy  Cornelius  1001975  Advanced  Motion  Graphics     How  to  Complete  a  Page  Turn       1) First,  create  a  new  composition  in   Adobe  After  effects.  Set  the   composition  length  to  30  seconds  (we   can  adjust  this  at  the  end  if  we  need   to).  The  dimensions  of  the   composition  are  1920  X  1080  at   25fps.  I  titled  my  project  Comp  One.       2) Let’s  then  import  the  images  of  the   background  and  the  main  cookbook.       3) Import  the  background  of  the   wooden  table,  along  with  the   cookbook  into  your  composition.   Hold  Shift  to  keep  the  original   dimensions  to  scale.     4) We  will  then  key  out  the  green  background  behind  the  book  cover.  To  do   this,  we  can  us  a  simple  colour  key.  Go  to  Effect  >  Keying  >  Colour  Key.     You  can  use  the  colour  picker   tool  to  select  the  shade  of  green   you  want  keying.  Adjust  the   colour  tolerance  and  edge  thin   settings,  as  well  as  the  edge   feather  to  blend  the  edges  and   make  it  look  slightly  softer.     5) We  are  then  going  to  pre  compose  these  layers  mainly  so  that  the  timeline   is  more  organised  once  we  start  importing  more  layers.  Select  the   background  layer  and  book  layer  individually  and  go  to  Layer  >  Pre   Compose.  We  then  want  to  make  sure  that  all  attributes  are  moved  into   the  composition.  Name  the  background  layer  ‘Background’  and  the  image   of  the  cookbook  ‘Cookbook’.     6) Now  we  are  going  to  create  a  new  composition  called  ‘Page  One’,  with  the   same  settings  as  before.  This  is  where  we  will  import  the  first  page  that   we  want  to  turn  in  our  book.  Import  the  image  into  this  composition  and   scale  it  to  size.       7) We  are  then  going  to  return  to  Comp  One  and  import  the  composition.                   1  
  • 2. Lucy  Cornelius  1001975  Advanced  Motion  Graphics         What it should look like now       8) With  this  Page  One  layer  selected,   we  are  going  to  adjust  it  so  that  it   matches  the  dimensions  of  the   original  cookbook.  Let’s  go  to  Effect   >  Distort  >  Mesh  Warp.  Adjust  the   settings  to  how  you  prefer.  I  like  to   use  1  row  and  about  7-­‐8  columns.       9) You  can  select  where  each  of  the   lines  in  the  mesh  meet  and  drag  the   corners  around.  This  is  great  here  as  it  means  we  can  adjust  the  image  to   fit  the  page  underneath.  You  can  also  use  the  other  ‘arm’  of  the  tool  to   make  the  page  appear  to  wriggle  a  bit.  Do  this  until  Page  One  matched  the   dimensions.     10)  Once  this  is  completed,  select  the  Page  One  layer  and  duplicate  it  by   pressing  CTRL  or  COMMAND  +  D.  Pre  compose  this  layer,  calling  it  ‘Page   One  Page  Turn’.  This  is  the  layer  we  will  add  the  effect  to.     11)  Now  select  Effect  >  Distort  >  CC  Page  Turn.  You  can  see  the  corner  of  the   image  turn  up  slightly.         2  
  • 3. Lucy  Cornelius  1001975  Advanced  Motion  Graphics      What it should look like now     12)        As  you  can  see,  the  page  turn  has  been  added  but  there  are  a  lot  of   things  we  need  to  do  to  make  it  look   effective.  Adjust  your  settings  to   match  these.  We  have  changed  the   controls  to  Classic  UI  so  that  we  can   adjust  the  fold  direction  to  to  -­‐90   degrees.  This  will  make  it  look  like  a   straight  fold  as  if  someone  is  opening   the  page.  I  have  adjusted  the  back   opacity  so  that  the  paper  looks  thick   and  translucent  like  tissue  paper.  I   also  adjusted  the  light  direction  so   that  there  is  not  a  shine  on  it,  as  I  do   not  want  the  paper  to  look  as  if  it   glossy.     13)    If  you  Solo  Page  One  Page  Turn,  you  can  see  that  this  is  not  quite  right.   The  left  page  shouldn’t  be  seen;  we  just  want  the  actual  page  that  is   turning.  Therefore  you  need  to  unsolo  this  page,  and  change  the  render   settings  to  just  the  back  page.     14)    We  then  want  to  right  click  on  the  image  >  Transform  >  Flip   Horizontally.  The  page  turn  is  now  looking  much  more  realistic.  Now   adjust  the  fold  direction  to  +90  degrees.           3  
  • 4. Lucy  Cornelius  1001975  Advanced  Motion  Graphics     15)    This  is  looking  much  better  but  there  is  still  a   problem  with  the  fact  you  cannot  see  the  original   cook  book  title  page.  To  change  this  we  need  to   complete  our  animation  of  the  page  turn  first.  Use   keyframes  to  animate  how  you  want  your  page  to   turn.     16)    Now  select  ‘page  one’.  This  is  the  layer  we  are  going   to  create  a  mask  on.  Make  sure  your  time  indicator  is   at  0  seconds.  Create  a  mask  big  enough  next  to  the  image  of  the  cookbook.                         17)  We  need  to  animate  this  mask  so  that  it  matches  the  edge  of  the  page   turning.  This  will  therefore  reveal  the  page  underneath  and  making  it  look   like  a  realistic  page  turn.  Once  this  is  completed,  you  should  have  your   first  page  turn.     18)    To  create  another  page,  we  simply  copy  these  same  steps  but  with  a  new   page.  For  example,  instead  of  creating  a  mask  on  page  one,  we  will  create  it   on  page  two,  and  remember  to  also  shift  the  page  two  layer  along  on  your   timeline  so  that  both  pages  don’t  turn  at  the  same  time.         4
