And now for the finishing touches...

We've got a beautiful looking short-film, holy JEEZ!  But we're not done... no, not done.  There are a couple of shots in this thing that need some love:  that CU of the flower, and the ending shot where the type comes on.

We used Nuke to prettify, we'll use After Effects to add some effects and work on the type.

We go over some intermediate / advanced Particular stuff here, and if you aren't familiar with that plugin then you REALLY need to check it out.  It's more-or-less THE particle plugin (besides Form) that damn near every AE Artist uses.

At the end of this episode, we are picture-locked.  All that's left is audio!

Every episode of Making Giants comes with the most up-to-date projects and assets so you can follow along or break apart anything that isn't covered in the videos.
