How to Add Atmosphere to a Scene | Mettle Flux | After Effects

Learn how to add mood and texture to your footage using Mettle FLUX. In this tutorial, Charles Yeager shows how to camera track your scene in After Effects, and then add a FLUX “Volume” to match the camera movement.

As the camera moves through the scene, it also moves through the hazy FLUX atmosphere. There are endless permutations in FLUX, so you can truly customize the atmospheric effects, and even add multiple FLUX “Volumes” in one scene.

FLUX generates 3D Volumetric Fractal Flames, which can be tracked in 3D space, to seamlessly integrate with the original footage.

Supports flat format, 360° video and Stereoscopic Over/Under.
