Making a background image a bit more dynamic/interesting
on Apr 9, 2017 at 9:25:29 pm

Hello folks,

I'm doing a quick freelance job for a 10 second TV/social spot. I'm not an advanced user but this is a pretty basic animation spot. I just have some elements transition in set to a sound bed. I'm happy with it but I was wondering if there might be a way to subtly make my background image a bit more engaging without being distracting. Maybe some light or color effects?

Here's a frame from the spot - the background image remains the same throughout.

Thanks much, friends.

How 'bout a little Fractal Noise? The possibilities are endless. There's one.

Thank you kindly, Dave! I checked out that effect and while I found it cool, this spot is kind of upbeat and corporate/acoustic so I was hoping for something a bit more bright and subtle.

Any other suggestions? Sorry if my description remains a bit ambiguous.

Sorry, but yes, your description is ambiguous.
We could be playing the "how about this one" game for days, I fear.

Any way you could narrow it down a bit? Got any examples you could show us?
