A “Frozen” Tutorial by John Dickinson

February 24, 2014

by John Dickinson and Artbeats


Inspired by the animated movie “Frozen” released in late 2013, John Dickinson of Motionworks shows how he combined an Artbeats stock footage clip using only the default Adobe After Effects tools, to create a realistic frosty window effect in this tutorial. Also included are the project files to follow along with and make your creative video effect.
