Chapter 13. DVD and Blu-ray Design > Designing Menu Backgrounds in After Effect...

Designing Menu Backgrounds in After Effects

Now that you’ve prepped clips, you’re ready to move forward (even if you didn’t shoot your own, we’ll share some here and others via download). The techniques you’ll use are extensions of those covered in Chapter 7, “Designing Backgrounds.” This time you’ll composite moving footage plates together using blending modes and colorization effects to produce backgrounds. Elements can interact in new and exciting ways thanks to blending modes.

Notes

The easiest way to learn blending modes is to just try them. The keyboard command Shift+− or Shift+= will cycle you through modes in Adobe applications.
