A video tutorial with files for After Effects
Submitted by: Spencer Tucker
This tutorial will explain how to create the touch screen effect. The tutorial is designed for Adobe After Effects 6.5, but can be applied to earlier versions as well. You should be able to apply the concepts to other applications as well.
This tutorial is for a touch screen as seen in futuristic thing-a-ma-jigs. It's
to look like there's a screen in front of me that I'm touching and
messing with.. Instead it looks like I got a hold of MS paint and
played around a bit. Anyway, I thought I'd make a video tutorial for
it since a few people asked me for one...
The way I make it is by basically making a new solid layer,
masking it, feathering it and decreasing the opacity. Then I use other
compositions (full of layers and whatnot), turn them into 3D layers
and scale them down tremendiously. I keyframe the windows I'm
dragging along with the motion of my hand and make it look sorta
