Utilizing multipass layers and simulating Depth of Field in After Effects

In this tutorial, you'll create a bumper to promo various shows on your fictional television network WMXN. Along the way, you'll learn how to setup and render a project to gain flexibility and time savings in After Effects.

Part 4 focuses on utilizing the multipass layers to change the lighting of the scene, and simulating Depth of Field in After Effects using the depth pass.

NOTE: The project file download for part 3 includes a heavily compressed 320x240 version of the passes. To better enjoy the tutorial, I recommend rendering a larger version yourself using the project file in part 2. This project file download includes only the final AE project.
