Tutorials: 2001: A Space Odyssey Stargate and the “Inception” effect for drone shots

From  two of the most famed directors (and writers) came two of the very best effects. Here is how you can re-create them.

The 2001: A Space Odyssey stargate

Created in 1968 so no CGI back then, the stargate was created by filming coloured gels through a slit in a screen while moving the camera forward. Here is a way of mimicking that analogue method using Adobe After Effects. If you don’t have After Effects, you can download a trial version here. And you can get the completed project file here.

The Inception Effect

I admit to never (at this stage) having seen this fil, but friends who have rave about it. This tutoeial shows you how to create the “Inception” effect using drone footage. If you don’t have any, you ncan download 2 clips for use in the project following info in the tutorial. You can download the completed project here.

Again, if you don’t have After Effects, you can download a trial version here.
