Hi guys, this is E Meek 77 again, and I want to do a couple more little things in the video which was working on like Apples and Butterfly and maybe a Lens Flare before we get into the more complicated stuff and right here is the butterfly I am going to use, I have done wind here and made a particle system right over and created the look that I want, so what this what we are going to use, I just want to show that to you real quick, like this.
So, here we are, back at the project we was at and I guess the first thing we want to do is add our butterflies, so we take it to the frame, I want our butterflies to start. We try to say about, right there, looks good, right one she is out with her hands. Now, we move over here and get my funny butterflies in the movie, if I can. There we go, bring it over here and drop it to my canvass. Everything looks good, let us see what it looks like.
Not bad, see, I told you that I just want to do a quick little tap of quick little things, before we got on to the more advance stuff here. So, now lets add a lens flare, pretty cool. So, let us go to, not before the butterflies were released, I guess. Get a one, or so. Now, rock there it looks good. Now, I am going to go to my layers tab and click this layer, if I release, there like that and I want to add a filter, I want to choose stellar lens layer. Now we could do this with the particle system too, but we are going to use a filter, there.
But, it is not a horror movie. We do not need to look at our mouth. We do not want this going on, so let us drag it down here. It is right about there, it looks pretty good. Now, we need to animate the flare, so let us turn our animate button and we go over here at my dash board and turn the intensity down to zero that way we cannot see it. Let me remove frame head up here, a little bit, and play it, about right … there. Now, we set the intensity slide it up to about four, this way it slowly comes in, like that, right there. And, I am going to set the side slighter all the way up to 400, like that, right there. Now I am going to turn this off and let us play it back and see what it looks like.
Not bad, not bad. Let me pull out the whole project, so we can watch the whole thing from start to finish and here we go.
Not bad guys, closer and closer, like I said I just want to through a couple little things in there to get it. Click a little better the butterflies and the lens layer, we are going to add some graphics next and stuff like that, so hopefully you will tune back in and thanks for watching and we will see you next time.
