INSTRUCTIONS

Lets get started:

Download the project files

install the provided fonts

it is best to examine the After Effects project to view final output before trying to include your image so do this first, when you are familiar proceed:
Inserting your image:
The first and most important is the creation of your image which will be used in the project
open into photoshop from the(footage) background folder giaused.psd


the original image we used is shown opposite

STEP 1

by using the magnetic lasso tool make a selection on your image defining a similar area to that shown
once you have completed the selection

  • choose select modify contract by 12 pixels
  • choose select feather 12 pixels
  • choose select inverse
 

STEP 2

  • add a new layer
  • fill selection area with black

if you complete this correctly your image should be similar to the one shown opposite

  • remove the current selection CTRL +D
  • choose select all
  • choose edit copy merged
  • this will place your image in the clipboard
  • switch to giaused.psd
  • and choose edit paste
  • choose edit transform to fit the image
  • IMPORTANT try to match as best as possible the position of the eyes nose and mouth we did this by making our pasted image layer 50% transparent and obtained the best setting
  • When you are complete save giaused.psd

 You are now ready to approach the After Effects composition open gia.aep

  • choose the project format required ie PAL DV composition and preview the project examine all areas to compare the result of your image result as against the original image
  • The *ADJUSTMENT folder contains the initial adjust composition which allows movement of the image do this to get the best possible match throughout the timeline adjust the scale and position as necessary withthe drag handles.
  • The dvd menu text composition will generate the text visible in the DVD menu simply adjust each text as required, it is important to remember that the Encore dvd menu contains no text merely a highlight so you have to input your DVD menu text requirement at this point
  • The other text compositions contain all other text content simply edit each text layer in the respective composition.
  • Each of the compositions is self described ie the PAL DV 1st play will create the initial menu build and the PAL DV encore backgrd composition will create the Encore DVD Menu background
  • The audio is included to each timeline and can be included in the final rendered output
  • after you have completed all rendering the various output videos can be imported into Encore with the provided DVD Menu for compiling
