Hi,

was wondering whether anyone could help me on something I am attempting for a short animation in after effects...whether or not i can explain what i want to do is another matter.

I have built two scenes in after effects (a swamp on top and an underwater scene on the bottom. I am following a really good andrew kramer tutorial from video copilot as to how to mover the camera down from one scene to another (like this but the bottom layer being water instead of basement http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dv5Akg0IXY). What i am having difficulty with is the water, I want the water's surface to have a subtle movement and the camera to see the small ripples and waves as the lens passes thru the water (with this sort of look as you go thru http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3381/3231381180_2af1a3173a_z.jpg )

does that make any sense? can anyone help?

many thanks,


Nick

Red Giant's Psunami is probably a good solution: http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/products/all/psunami/

It would probably mean that you'll have to redo the bottom part of your composition with this plugin, but animating water probably is a lot more complex.

That is brilliant! exactly what I need! Thanks! It seems to have sky and sun built in to it do you know if that can be removed?

Cheers!

I believe the plugin allows you to switch off the sky/sun layers and replace those with your own...

Good news - I just received word last night that RGS is now offering this with a $100 discount ($99 instead of $199). Enter Coupon Code 199FOR99 during checkout to redeem your discount. Offer valid for the next 5 days.
