Hey guys! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Today, I’ll be showing you how to create a simple and efficient effect in Adobe After Effects cs5. But before we get started, you need to make sure you have a video game clip or any clip in general that is recorded at 59.94 frames per second. This will ensure that you will have the smoothest possible slow-motion which I am going to be showing you how to do without any external plugins.

 

Procedure:

1. Import your video clip in After Effects and place it onto the timeline.

2. Select the video clip on the timeline, and then go to effects>Time>Time Warp. This is a default plugin in After Effects so don’t worry, you do not need to download any plugins for this effect.

3. Make a keyframe at a specific point on the timeline. Then go forward to a minimum of 5 frames or a maximum of 10 frames (any number between those are good).

4. Select your video clip again, ,then go to effects>Distort>CC Split. As you play around with the Amount settings for the CC Split, you will noticed a section of your video clip will be distorted so that it will create an opening.

5. Select a point on your timeline, then keyframe it, then go forward a few frames and then set the amount to a larger number.

6. That’s it! Your done. You can add a text or image in the region of the effect, but make sure it is a layer under the video layer.
