Cinematic Light Leaks Titles

Video: Cinematic Light Leaks Titles

This free After Effects tutorial will show you how to create a stunning title sequence set in the clouds.


In this After Effects Tutorial, Mackenzie teaches you how to create a vintage looking cinematic title sequence that includes various artefacts and light leaks.

During the tutorial, you will learn how to create elegant title placeholders, which include line elements and masks allowing you to transition between titles seamlessly.

Adding glass artefacts and film scratches to your scene will give you a classic retro look and applying an expression to the scratches will add some subtle animation to your elements.

You will also be adding film burns / light leaks to your scene that will act as transition points throughout the title sequence, and finally a carefully animated grid will add some depth to your background.
