Adobe After Effects: A tree grows in a pasture

Chapter: Visual and Creative Effects

Topic: Simulating Nature

Mark Simpson uses ‘CE Lightning’, ‘CE Radial Shadow’ and Atomic Power Evolution ‘Foam’ effects to simulate a time-lapse like effect of tree being grown out of the ground and then leaves growing on the tree. This tutorial could easily be adapted to be used with the built-in plug-ins of AE 5. Cult Effects plug-ins are included with After Effects 6.5 or available as Final Effects Complete from Media 100.
