Flying a Spaceship Using Photoshop and After Effects – Animation Process Tutorial

In this video I’m talking about making a 2D animation sci-fi scene in After Effects more realistic by including some light and camera hacks. Of course, Photoshop is where it all starts, so I must not exclude that, but I hope that you can learn some After Effects tricks this time, or even just get an idea on how to animate your own 2D sci-fi space scene. This is another piece I made for Omega Horizon, an upcoming dystopian sci-fi tabletop RPG by Paleo Gaming.

I devoted this channel to a big part of my life, which is tabletop RPGs, mainly DnD and Pathfinder. But since I work as a motion designer for a marketing company , and dabble in illustration, I decided to round up my skills and try to produce somethign original.
I occasionally draw a parallel line between role playing games and real life situations, delving into psychology and deeper explanation of building a character within the game. My love for handcrafts is something that runs in my family. Basically all of my known family had something to do with craftsmanship, whether it was a paying job, or a hobby, so it was only natural that I get into something similar, hence the crafting and customizing part of this channel. My wish is to entertain you as much as educate you and I hope that we’ll all have fun on the way.
