Yūri Ep7 gifset process
A little process overview of the Yūri gifset I made:
1) Find the scene you wanna edit.
bless this face
2) THE MOST TIME CONSUMING PART: masking out the background. After Effects has a roto tool you can use that auto generates a mask. SAVES A TON OF TIME, but you still gotta go through each frame to make sure it caught everything (hair is a pain lemme tell you..) You can see me using the roto brush to fix up the mask (right side) in two of the frames, which translates to the actual gif (left side). You can also use Photoshop to mask manually through each frame with the lasso tools but… that’s gonna take way too long especially if the scene has a lot of movement LOL
Result with the background gone (some minor errors later effects will fix):
3) Add your effects, adjustments, and text
And now you have a precious Yūri looking for some praise:
