View Full Version : Choise of effects for horror flash animation

03 March 2010, 11:01 PM

I am making a horror animation in Flash CS4, and was thinking about adapting my final work into AE, to add some cool transitions between scenes, camera movements, depth and finally - some neat Effects, to make the creepy scenes more creepy.

Which particular effects can you recommend to use, to make the supreme horror atmosphere? To narrow it down, I am going to make a few examples of the scenes that I want to create and the atmosphere that I want to achieve:

1) Surveillance camera effect

2) Distortion of paranormal effects e.g.

3) Manipulation of the face: to enlarge the mouth and eyes, make them change color. Eventually adding a minor glow to the eyes (but I assume that it is normal Glow effect?) e.g.

Please suggest me anything horror-like that I can achieve in AE, even if I didn't mention it earlier.

Thanks in advance!

At least some of what you're looking for can be found on

They have tutorials for atmosphere and face warping.
