Hello Everyone,

This is my first time posting on here.

Do you guys know how to make the computer/internet visuals portions of this ad: http://tinyurl.com/cwg5sre

Meaning, what did they use to make up the Facebook comment box, etc? My guess would be its done in some sort of vector based program (Illustrator?) and then animated in After Effects so they can zoom in/out without pixelation. But I'm really not sure.

Does anyone know if there are ready-made After Effects "templates" for Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and/or Hulu? That would definitely save me a lot of time as oppose to rebuilding each one.

Thanks

You could try doing screengrabs and try the autotrace feature in illustrator or AE, might get good enough results to not "recreate." They use actual screen grabs on the wideshots, but cheat by cutting straight to the fake closeups. You could cheat too, by just having generic text boxes, etc. after having an establishing shot.

Thank you so much for the reply.

The autotrace idea is a great suggestion. Will give it a try. I also found stuff like this:
