Animation behind detailed glass
on Feb 22, 2016 at 7:48:30 pm

Hello there,
I'm trying to make an animation in a still image with a window (glass) that has a lot of details on it (lines). Now the animation itself is finished and i'm putting everything together in after effects. Right now I'm making separate files of images in photoshop (selecting the lines) and placing these over the animation in after effects but its taking a lot of time so I was wondering if there is an easier way/techinque in after effects to make it seem as if though the animation is placed behind the glass. Does anyone have a suggestion.
Thanks in advance.

Thom

Have a screen grab of the lined window? There might be a lot of different ways to pull those lines, but it's hard to say without seeing the image.

I think I would just make an adjustment layer and mask every line on the glass manually in After Effects. I'd put the adjustment layer above your animation, above the original image. After your animation is placed and color corrected correctly, I'd put another color correction on the adjustment layer to match the way the windows effect the original image. Finally I'd duplicate your animation, put it above the adjustment layer and use it as a trackmatte for the adjustment layer.
