How to Add Snow to a Shot Realistically in Ae

ActionVFX shows how to use snow assets properly in After Effects for the best look.

I admit that I’ve placed a snowy animated clip on top of footage and called it a day before. If you have a look at this new tutorial from ActionVFX hosted by Danasa Arsad, you may never slap on snow or rain and then leave it again.

Arsad shows how to use ActionVFX’s windy snow collection in a way that will garner the best-looking shot in the end. There is a bit of tracking, and some thought into considering the distance displayed in the plate shot.

The tutorial uses the Windy Snow Collection from ActionVFX.
