Congratulations to everyone who undertook After Effects Assignment 4. Who’d have thought that the Fractal Effect could be so versatile!

For Assignment 5 we’re using Beam, Find Edges and Curves. On first inspection Beam appears to be a one-trick-pony – lasers or light sabres anyone? But with a little experimentation you’ll discover just how diverse it can be.  Here’s my experiment, which took me an hour!

Remember the guidelines: Use only those three effects applied to a single Solid Layer and don’t use the Brainstorm Tool! Take at least 30 minutes to explore the effects and post a JPG (please compress) in the comments. Beam me up!
