This chapter's project can serve as a great foundation for other variations. For example, imagine adding five more filmstrips, each showing a different movie, and placing the strips in 3D space with different Z-axis Property values. But before you take this project out and run with it, you need to complete a few finishing touches to complete the final look of this chapter's finished movie:

  • To give the filmstrip more of an organic feel, like that of a real filmstrip, apply the Turbulent Displace effect to the Film Strip layer.

  • To give the filmstrip the texture of film grain, apply the Add Grain effect (new in After Effects 6.5) to the Film Strip layer. If you're feeling really ambitious, you can use an image scanned from film, and apply the new Match Grain effect to the Film Strip layer to give it the same appearance of grain.
