Buchrückseite

"... a book that needs to be on every motion graphic designer's shelf."
--Scott Kelby, President, National Association of Photoshop Professionals

Author Jeff Foster appeared on the DV Guys, a weekly radio show devoted to DV professionals and enthusiasts, for a LIVE online interview on Thursday, June 17, 2004. If you missed it, you can still listen to their archive.

If you're in the business of motion graphics or desktop digital video production, you know that Adobe's After Effects and Photoshop are two of the most indispensable content creation tools. More integrated than ever before, the world's number-one compositing and image-editing programs can be used in tandem to create quality work at a relatively low cost. But it takes years of experience to figure out how to get the most out of this remarkable duo.

With After Effects and Photoshop: Animation and Production Effects for DV and Film, graphics guru Jeff Foster has created the first book devoted to showing how you can use these two programs together to produce animations and effects on the desktop. This practical guide focuses exclusively on techniques commonly used in the field as well as cutting-edge production tricks. These hands-on projects will demystify cool Hollywood effects and help you solve your daily challenges. And they’ll inspire you to think more artistically when approaching your creations.

Inside, you'll discover pro techniques for motion graphics and video production, including how to:

  • Add depth and realism to your animations by mimicking real motion
  • Use exaggerated movements to enhance characterization
  • Apply 3-D animation to 2-D images
  • Remove background fodder with blue-screen garbage mattes
  • Employ rotoscoping techniques for frame-by-frame retouching
  • Construct realistic composites and scene locations using matte painting techniques
  • Make movies from stills by simulating 3-D camera motion
  • Utilize perspective, speed, and scale to create believable moving objects
  • Produce realistic special effects such as noise, clouds, and smoke
  • Practice imaginative motion titling effects that grab people’s attention
  • Develop professional scene transitions using 3-D layer animations
  • And much more!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A video producer's "must-have". 22. Mai 2004
Von fullcircledave - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As a video professional who uses After Effects and Photoshop almost every day in the production of training and promotional videos, I thought I had a pretty good working knowledge of both programs. I was wrong. Jeff Foster's wonderful new book has opened my eyes to the real potential of both of these programs. From the very first chapter I started learning powerful techniques and features I was previously unaware of and how to use tools I had previously used in ways I never considered before. Personally, I learn best by working through hands-on projects, and this book is brimming with in-depth, highly creative tutorials. Jeff explains every step in detail and more importantly, why you are taking them. It is obvious Jeff is an accomplished professional, and he shares not only the After Effects techniques, but also the subtle nuances that raise a project from satisfactory to exceptional. After Effects has always been a favorite program of mine for 2-dimensional animation. But this book has shown me what a powerful 3D program it is as well. There are great chapters on blue-screen, rotoscoping, using mattes, adding photo-realism to your animations. And the projects are just plain fun. I can't tell you how many times I found myself working through a tutorial, previewing the animation, and just stopping to say "wow!" and to consider how I might use that technique in my own work. I have bought several After Effects books over the years, but this is by far the best I have read. If you are brand new to After Effects, you may be a little frustrated as Jeff assumes you have a basic knowledge of the program. But if you are an After Effects and Photoshop user looking to refine your skill and become a true professional, this book is for you. Highly recommended!

5.0 von 5 Sternen In search of the Holy Grail? 23. Juli 2005
Von Zinfan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
In the immortal words of the irreverent yet insightful Monty Python:

"...and now for something completely different"...words that not only bring meaning to life, but a more than accurate description of this book.

As someone who directs and produces a wide variety of video and film projects, I found this guide to be an invaluable resource. A simple glance through the chapter titles affords the reader a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of professional animation and production effects. I must admit, I'm one of those people who would rather learn by doing instead of reading, but I've found an exception, as this book effectively balances the best of both worlds. Instead of stumbling through pages of technical, yawn-inspiring rhetoric, Mr. Foster imaginatively presents Hollywood-type tips and tricks, extensively supported with tutorials and videos found within the enclosed DVD. Imagine, for example, if the creative applications outlined in Chapter 5 had been available when the distinguished Monty Python animations, (thank you, Terry Gilliam) were being created...

Brilliant!

If showcasing some of your client's vintage photographs, (as I needed for an upcoming documentary) is required, then Chapter 11, "Making Movies From Stills" will prove to be indispensable. It's amazing how easily you can bring a 2D photo to life simply by separating or "peeling-away" the layers in Photoshop and importing the files into After Effects. Other techniques, such as creating zoom effects and 3D animated camera pans, are also clearly demonstrated...the resulting animations are impressive.

Please keep in mind, this book won't teach you either After Effects or Photoshop, so if you're looking for an instructional manual for such, look elsewhere. However, if you want to learn everything from basic animation to sophisticated matte painting, motion graphics and compositing techniques then buy this book!

...wink, wink...nudge, nudge.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I could not have done it without this book! 15. Dezember 2004
Von Luis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I am currently in production on a small budget documentary trying to do big budget effects and this book made it all possible. If you want to greate that 3d depth feel to your photos( a la "Kid Stays in the Picture"), you need this book. If you want to pull a key out of the most terribley shot green screen footage, you need this book. And if you want to create custom transitions between footage and more, it is all possible with the help of Jeff Foster's expertise. Because of what I learned from his various chapters I am now employed for the next 3 years!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jeff Foster-Knows His Stuff 16. Dezember 2004
Von Robin A. F. Olson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Wow! I really hate to slog through technical books, but Mr. Foster's "After Effects + Photoshop..." is truly a delight! From cover to cover I found helpful, clearly written techniques and tricks, along with lots of juicy colorful images to keep me interested. Since I've co-authored two books on Adobe Illustrator, I can relate to the challenge of making difficult information a breeze for the reader to understand. Good work!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good but not great 3. Januar 2005
Von J.B. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is definitely not for beginners. Good concept and it teaches you how to approach things differently, but I wonder if it was just my copy. It seemed that every tutorial I done skip key points!? Only after looking at the actual AEP on the disk was I able to figure out what I was missing. You can't follow it by trying to upload the indivial layers yourself or you'll surely get lost at some step. I'm no beginner, nor am I a professional, but I think when you include tutorials you shouldn't leave out key elements. Also it was definitely made for the Mac user, which isn't a problem for me, but like I said it's definitely not for beginners. I'll give it credit for what you can do if you open the AEPs in After Effects. This shouldn't be your only book on this subject though. I recommend Photoshop CS for non-linear editors by Richard H. and also his quick tips book on After Effects. Good book though, I use it for reference only not a learning tool.
