After Effects CS6
Creating a Ray-Traced Intro – Part 1
After Effects CS6 Intro/Outro Preview
This is the first of six videos related to the creation of the above intro.
The series is aimed at beginners to After Effects, not just to After Effects ray tracing.
Unlike other features of After Effects, ray tracing relies heavily on Nvidia Cuda technology so I have made a video concerning the kind of graphic cards recommended to provide the best ray tracing results.
The following five videos will take us through almost all the editing required to create the intro.
Not much more than After Effects is required, and where there are downloads indicated you can try the suggested files or perhaps experiment with you own ideas.
