Have you got links to videos of the effects you're talking about? For those of us that haven't seen the show we can't really help without more information. smile

Well, I love the show, but I really could only offer advice for earth bending (though fire is my faveorite element)

Get a picture of the type (size, shape, etc.) Garbage matt it out, then just animate it on top of the layer of your actor, and your done!


Hope I could help!

(Oh, and do you think you could tell me how you're doing the fire bending? I LOVE fire bending!)

Oh, it's simple. Here's how to do it.

1: click on the layer that you are applying (in the timeline) to (in this case, the one with the picture of the rock) and select : Matte

2: Then, from the drop-down menu, select Garbage Matte

3: Next select the type you want ( freehand, circle, square. This menu appears in the top right corner where the effects/media selection is)

4: Draw your matte on the canvas (This works the same way it does with masking. Also, the easiest way to do this is to put the matte AROUND THE THING YOU WANT then invert it.)

5: Click on your layer name in the timeline again (or something else. It doesn't matter) and your done!


Hope I could help. Also, again, I would LOVE to know how you do the fire-bending effects.
