Dancing Dissolve Tutorial

“Dancing what?? You say it’s an After Effects blend mode…I have never used it”
This is often the thoughts that comes to mind when dancing dissolve is mentioned. In this presentation I talk about a creative use I have found for the dancing dissolve blend mode. I demonstrate a method using it to age some footage. I should state that I do not explain much about the process of applying effects but more the idea and rough setup, seeding an idea for using this blend mode that can be adapted and pushed further to create a really nice aged film process all with in after effects.

I have got some more ideas along a similar line that I have tested to create other elements that are useful for aging film, look out for these videos soon to come.

Hopefully you’ll find this useful and some ideas spring to mind for further uses. Please comment and share.
