Of all the editing software, you’ll probably get the best key results in After Effects. There are several methods for working with After Effects green screen footage. Adobe recommends using a built-in preset with a combination of three effects. This method works great for beginners (and experts) because it produces quick (and usually great) results. We’ll walk you through how to do this step-by-step.

Last Fall the good folks at motionvfx.com released mPuppet, a mesh warp plugin for Final Cut Pro X and Motion. At that time I was on the road in Brooklyn and I did a fun and rather silly demo (which you can see here).

Here we’ll take deep dives into three effects that were introduced in After Effects CS4: Cartoon Effect, Bilateral Blur, and Turbulent Noise. The first two are great for creating stylized looks beyond their most obvious applications (live-action cartoons and skin softening, respectively) while Turbulent Noise is useful for creating organic phenomena such as fire and clouds.
