Tutorial 180: Organic Web Look

Joe Clay | Jun 14, 2019

This week, we take a look at a simple, but useful effect. The main idea is to take an image and put some dots or a texture above it. Then you can use CC Vector Blur to make web-like connections between the bright areas that remain.

We're using this royalty free brain image, if you'd like to follow along.

Grab the Project Files

Get the project file through our Gumroad Store. This project file contains all of the setups shown in the tutorial, the LUT that we use for the final look, and all of the graphic elements. An animated version is also included. The After Effects project was built in AE CC 2019 but there's a version included for v14 (2017).

If you're buying project files, consider becoming a Patron. At the $5/mo. tier, you get access to project files as they come out and some tutorials also come with additional BTS content showing more of the builds.
