    In part two of our Shadows, 2 part tutorial, Bill O’Neil continues with an explanation of an effect that he’s constantly asked how it was done. He doesn’t use 3D — it’s done entirely in After Effects and the coolness of the scene is mostly from the lighting and shadows. As an added bonus, Bill includes his project files for snow and smoke.

    Very cool Tutorial! Where are the sounds from? I have difficulties to find adequate sounds to give my scene more life, where can I find something like yours?

    I have a sound effects library and a synthesizer to compose music and drums when needed. I think I used an “eerie wind” sound and a “whoosh” sound for this clip. I’m glad you enjoyed the tutorial!
