Post Production Guidance needed
show user profile  9krausec
Currently I am working on a small logo animation for class. I started and completed it pretty fast (simple animation), but I have a question as far as post production is concerned. My render output is going to be OpenEXR with a stored alpha map. I plan to take the sequence into AE and work on it there. My question to you, is the displayed (second) image possible with the output being the first image (what I get with the openEXR in PS)?

I haven't worked that much with AE, so this is a good place to start I think. What I want to do is get the second image, with the halo light effect pulsating a little bit. Might even throw some color into it.

I am assuming this simple effect would be sort of easy with after effects, but am I thinking about this the right way? Working with sequenced OpenExr files? Will AE be able to read the transparency of the alpha so I can work with layers to get the final desired output?

Many thanks!

Thanks JonathanH, that's what I was looking for.. I didn't know it was that easy (automated) with Cs3 or else I wouldn't of asked.... Now I can start the render and figure out how to make a cool light halo effect thing..

thanks guys (even you Pil...)

Great! I will check this out in the next week.. Thanks for all the help again guys!

Here is what I finished today, it's not anything too exciting, but it will pass the project I needed to create for school.

Tell me what you think (it's sorta glitchy)
