Often when creating grungy styles I resort to stock imagery, as is the case with this weathered metal look. The base for the look is a metal texture, heavily treated in Photoshop, with an After Effects comp combining Roughen Edges and Fractal Noise for blotches and scratches. You’ll also notice I’ve color corrected the Text comp inside the Main comp to help it sit better with the background. The background was created by combining a couple of stock footage layers, which have been replaced in the download with a rendered still.

      Hi TornhearT, I’ve taught many beginners over the years. The key to getting started is just…well… to get started! Don’t be overwhelmed by how much training there is out there, just start somewhere. I used and the Adobe Classroom in a Book to get started. Best, John.
