Lesson 5. Horror Festival Ad > Adding the lightning footage

Adding the lightning footage

You'll continue to assemble elements in the composition. After importing the lightning footage, you'll adjust the image with a few effects.

  1. Turn on the video for all the layers except HMatte.psd. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) in the Project window, choose Import > Footage File, select Litng.mov, and click Open.

  2. Set the current time to 15:00 and center Litng.mov in the Composition window by dragging it from the Project window into the Time Layout window.

    Now you'll increase the contrast of the image, and then use the Lighten mode to drop out the black background.

  3. Press the Page Down key twice to move forward a couple of frames so that you can see the lightning image.
