Getting VashiMorphic40 to work

Recommended Posts

Has anyone played with the VashiMorphic40 template for AE to anamorphake it? I'm a complete rookie with AE, so I'm not sure why it's not working for me. The template doesn't come with a lot of instructions, but I think I've followed them correctly. I import my footage into AE, and then drag onto the Your Footage layer using the ALT drag method. I can see my clip under the black bars, but I don't know how to make the bars disappear and the transformation to work. If I just render it out, I've got my footage with black bars over it. I'm guessing that I'm missing a simple step that AE experts do without even thinking about it, which is why it's not listed in the instructions on the Vashi Visuals page.

If you could post screenshots, things would be easier to understand! I do a lot of AE and I don't remember having an issue with this template. :)

Also, VashiMorphic is cool, but I have a lot more post tutorials in my guide: www.anamorfakeit.com

Thanks for chiming in, Tito. Turns out I was right, it was a super simple instruction that the maker simply forgot to include: turn off the sample black bars layer. The effect is a bit subtle and I know you have a lot  more tricks up your sleeve, how could you not. ;-). I've seen your videos on anamorphake filters, etc. I'm working with some pre-shot concert footage, so lens filter won't help. I need software only solutions. Trying to spice up the video by cutting between different versions of shots from the same camera/angle because we had some technical difficulties that took out the second camera for portions of the concert.
