Please kindly help..

I have got a job making a clip with the AIRFLOW as one of the key components.  Please kindly give me the light in the cave whether After Effects can help me out.

The link below shows the airflow similar to what I need to do at the minutes of  0.41 - 0.54

This is how I would make it:

- With the pen create a Shape Layer giving them the path to the airflow, remove the Fill and thicken the Stroke.
- In the Stroke options of the layer, modify the start and end of the Taper.*
- Add a Trim Paths and make an animation of the airflow path.*
- Put 60% opacity on the layer.
- Add the Glow filter and configure its parameters.*
- Add the CC Vector Blur filter and give necessary parameters.*

 

*Follow these steps guiding you with my screenshot.

You're welcome. How was the airflow?

Dear Byroncortez,

Your step-by-step advice is superb!  

I followed them and it really gave me the light in the cave!

Please kindly advise me a bit further, please.

I have successfully created a simply airflow as advised, but..

I would like to have the air inflow (blue flow) to repeat flowing for 3 times before the air outflow (red flow) to start flowing for another 3 times. How can I set this?

Thank you very much.

 

Sincerely,

I am guessing that you do not have a lot of experience with After Effects. Byron's suggestion that you try using a shape layer is pretty good, but the most efficient technique depends on the kind of footage you are working with. Your sample video is a 3D amination. If your project can be done using a still image then Byron has given you one possible solution but it will probably separating the image into layers and/or creating masks or track mattes to make the graphic move through openings. 

 

If you are trying to add airflow graphics to footage with a moving camera then there are a lot of other considerations. The rendered 3D model of the house you gave us as an example will barely camera track, so it would be possible to add some convincing airflow graphics to the footage but it will involve a thorough understanding of Camera Tracking, working in AE's 3D space, masking, track mattes and lots more. It would not be an easy project for someone with very little experience with AE's 3D space and roto, track mattes, and compositing modes. A starting place would look something like this:

If you have access to the original 3D model and know something about the app used to create the model and animate the camera move, then it would be a better idea to explore creating the airflow effects in the 3D app. I have C4d and Blender. One is expensive, the other is Free (http://blender.org) Personally I would do the whole project in Blender. I would pick Blender over C4D because I have been using Blender for many years and I don't have to think about the UI. 

 

Tell us a little more about yourself and your project and maybe we can offer a little more specific recommendations.

Dear Rick,

Thank you very much for your advice.  I really appreciate.  Yes, I have very little experience with After Effects and I am learning it day after day since my latest job needs it badly.

For more information, I need to create an airflow on the STILL background of the room picture.  Only the airflow will move from one end to another.

I will study your advice and will come back to you how it works.

 

Sincerely,

Tony Tantisuwanna

The still photo will make things a lot easier. You can do the masking in Photoshop easier and faster than you can do it in After Effects. You just need to figure out what parts of the image the airflow effect needs to go behind. Let us know if you need more help.
