One of the few instructors out there that is taking it up a level, PremiumBeat is back at it again with another amazing tutorial. This one shows us how to create the cool effect from the movie Annihilation!

From the instructor:

If you’ve seen the trailer for the upcoming Alex Garland film Annihilation, then you’ve seen some of the stunning VFX from the film. In the trailer, we see strange animals, beautiful overgrown forests, and (perhaps most notably) a strange fractal-covered bubble-like wall with interesting colors and textures.

In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to pull off a similar effect using Adobe After Effects and a freebie pack from RocketStock called Nebula. The pack contains 19 4K space background elements created organically and captured in-studio. Although we call these assets space background elements, you can use them for many other purposes and effects. In this tutorial, we’ll use the elements from the Nebula pack to bring interesting textures and colors to the effect, and we’ll use some relatively advanced rotoscoping techniques to help us get there.
