Just wondering the quickest and easiest (and cheapest) way to 'make' some animated backgrounds like the jumpbacks by digital juice?
I have blufftitler and I'm wondering if it quickest to do a couple of particle layers in that. I know you can do it in Wax as well.
Is anyone doing this also?
Quickest and cheapest? - look no further than Vegas - a combination of multiple tracks, bezier masks, variable opacity, generated media, particularly the Noise Generator, maybe with the chequerboard, Parent/Child composites and FX such as blur, deform, swirl .... anything .... can make a surprisingly wide range of loops.
(I bought a Main Concept set of loops a while back, and I've never used them ...)
Be sure to copy the first keyframes to the end, so that looping is smooth.
You can store these as .vegs, or make avis out of the results and compile a library on CD/DVD.
