7 VFX Tips: Using Blender and After Effects


Joseph writes:

Hi BlenderNation! In this video I share seven ways to realistic composite CGI layers together to create a more realistic live action final shot. To create this shot I used Blender 3d for creating the computer generated imagery and I composited all of the layers inside of Adobe After Effects. I also used 3d models from these amazing 3d artists below. Check them out on

  • Chris Kuhn- 3d Helicopter
  • Alexdark- 3d Carrier

Please let me know what you think and if you have any tips of your own in the comment section below! Cheers from Los Angeles California!
