Add Texture in After Results

I am a texture fanatic, a bit does not really feel full with no little bit of texture. You can go to city with After Results texture, however I might begin with a pleasant background. I discovered this good Fleck paper texture and it was big, so I’ve simply scaled that down slightly bit and diminished the opacity – T is the shortcut for this –  to make it extra refined.



You would possibly have the ability to see higher within the video than within the screenshot, however to provide this a stop-motion really feel, I’ve added some rotation.

Subsequent we’ll add slightly wiggle animation to our background. Subsequent to the wiggle command now we have the frequency, which is 3, after which amplitude is 20. This is likely to be an excessive amount of, however we’ll see. Then I am including a posterize time – it is actually necessary that you simply put this on high – I’ve bought that at 4 frames per second.

As soon as you have set these you would possibly need to Solo it actually shortly (view it in isolation) simply to see the way it seems to be. I did this after I had my amplitude at 20 and it was method an excessive amount of, so I ended up knocking it down to three. You would possibly have to mess around slightly to see what works for you.
