Hi—first post into a cg community :)


While I don’t want to become a master (I’m a film director with no money to hire a proper fx artist), I would like to alter backgrounds and perhaps add minor enhancements to our foregrounds to boost production design.


From little research, looks like after effects then blender would be good softwares of focus? My plan (unless advised otherwise) is to create a few mini-projects and find tutorials to achieve them.


I’ll put in a lot of hours to get there, but don’t want to waste those hours. If you have any directional or learning-habit advice to guide me, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hey. Yes, I think Blender and AE would be good. Maybe check Videocopilot tutorials, I remember there were several ones about a set extension.
