After Effects- Space Shootout Sketch
This is part of a series of improving my digital skills. The goal is to follow tutorials and post my progress here. I will use various tools including, but not limited to, Houdini, Touch Designer, Unreal Engine, Unity, Maya, Blender, After Effects, and even Photoshop character and environment concepts.
In this sketch, one of my students asked me what else I could do with After Effects. I decided to build this quick little game mock-up of a space shooter game. Based on previous techniques I learned I created a simple star background and animated it to move across the screen. I then created a Rocketship and added add some animated effects. I did the same for the meteors.
