Just ahead of the release of Nicola & Dominic's Wedding Film here's another little teaser video - some flowergirl magic sparkles
Nicola & Dominic were married at St Thomas's Church, Newton-le-Willows and celebrated the rest of their day at Alder Root Golf Club on the outskirts of Warrington.
When you promise a little girl a magical sparkling wand on a wedding day you can never let her down!
I imported the footage into After Effects and motion tracked the end of the wand. Next, I applied the motion tracking to a null object.
In the composition I then created a new layer, and applied the CC Particle World effect to it, setting the emitter to stars... with the life-span of the particles set at 1.5 seconds and their colour based upon the flowergirl's dress and the blue from the bridesmaids dresses.
Finally, using formulas and some calculated scaling I linked the position of the emitter to the null object and rendered out the final footage.
Hey presto... magical colour-matched sparkles that come from her "magic wand". Beautiful :)
