Hi All,

Im looking for a way to create a running paint clip in after effects

I want it to look like someones pouring paint just above the screen and its running down .

I accidentally stumbled across a tutorial to do this recently but i can't remember where it was :(

I was hoping you might be able to help me out here!!?

Thanks :)

Do you want a solid paint wipe or the image to turn to a painting?
If it's just a straight paint wipe, just shoot some colored paint that can be poured over a white board/paper that is on the floor and has a slight angle to allow the paint to flow top to bottom. Once you have that you ca easily key the paint, change the color and the speed of the footage to get the transition you need. There's nothing line the real thing- no effect will give you that.

Like Ted and Greg said, this is pretty easy to do. The real thing does look best and all it takes is a 50 cent piece of poster board that's close enough to chroma green and a dollars worth of white paint (so you can colorize however you like in post). Or, if you don't want to shoot it yourself, there's plenty of cheap stock footage available of running paint and they often already have alpha channels.
