Live Feedback on stream:

In this video I go through how to get a VHS/CRT look in After Effects. The look is colourful, bright, and textured, which is a recipe for success! The final look uses a handful of effects, which makes it a perfect exercise in using numerous effects in a specific order to get the look you want. Knowing when and how to stagger effects is essential to increasing your skill and understanding of Ae. Hopefully you walk away with some new knowledge or at least having enjoyed the video!

As always, thank you for watching!
