Digital-Tutors’ Mysterious Meteor Video Now a Free Workshop

Adobe After Effects techniques from viral video appearing on Reddit, local news and national weather outlets unveiled in multi-step tutorial.

Oklahoma City, OK -- The real or fake debate raged on recently after digital VFX training site Digital-Tutors released a fake meteor sighting video online. Now the clip, which sparked a frenzied discussion on Reddit’s front page and made its way onto national and local U.S. broadcasts, has been transformed into a free After Effects tutorial on Digital-Tutors website.

The tutorial teaches artists how to create the lighting effects and tracking techniques that will help them create VFX shots of their own. Other topics covered include: creating a meteor tail, setting up light for animation, and painting the moon out of the sky. 

“Digital-Tutors has a long history of presenting artists with expert tutorials that move them along in their careers, but this is the first time we’ve released the final video before the tutorial,” said Grant Boudon, director of marketing and PR for Digital-Tutors. “Now that we’ve seen the power of a viral video and both pieces are in place, we look forward to seeing what artists can create with the free training and 1,000s of other tutorials in our training library.”
