Cheap Tricks #7 | Captain Marvel Energy Effects Tutorial

I don’t want to understate this folks, but get ready for the most awesome episode of Cheap Tricks yet. In this tutorial Hashi from Action Movie Kid shows you how to create the energy effects from Captain Marvel.

You’ll learn about keying, compositing, VFX and color correction – but most importantly, you’ll learn that with great power comes great responsibility. Yeah, that’s a different superhero’s thing, but it’s all in the same cinematic universe now, so we’re going with it.

Special props to Marta Svetek, our Red Giant Social and Community Manager, for donning the iconic super suit, performing full body rolls, and taking on a leaf blower – all so that you could learn how to make epic VFX.

Don’t forget to grab Hashi’s project files and templates HERE.
