Hello forum-

I am trying to create an effect that simulates active dappled sunlight on a natural surface such as grass. I have a bird eye view image of grass that I've dropped into after effects and I've tried fractal noise on a sunny yellow colored solid and cell generator effects over the grass and it just doesn't look right. I've also tried taking footage that I shot of a tree canopy and dropping its opacity, keying out all the sky blue and laying it over the grass, but that looks too cartoony. Any suggestions?

A references for the look I want:
But I would this to undulate showing that the tree a moving in the wind

Thanks so much in advance for any advice!
