There are many ways to create backgrounds in After Effects and many of us have our own special ways of doing this. Please join Dean Velez creator of ''The Anvel Training Program for Motion Graphics'' in a 5 part series as he shares some of his different methods. In this part five of the series, Dean uses the polygon lasso tool in Photoshop to create a wide odd shaped polygon in the center of the screen for each new layer with varying sizes, green tones, blend modes and overlap. He then imports the psd into After Effects to create a futuristic background.
