All About Eyes, Part I - Iris Texture

May 13, 2013

The first in a 3-part series, Boris FX’s own Paul Ezzy dives into creating a photorealistic eye in Adobe After Effects. Using BCC Organic Strands as the focal point in Part I, Paul details how to create iris texture by manipulating organic noise, strands direction, gradients, the opacity graph, movement, and other individual control features. Plus, he’ll teach you how to further enhance your eye with blending techniques and the BCC Sphere effect to simulate realistic lighting.

If you’re tired of using stock images that don’t allow you full creative control, and want your next sci-fi, medical, horror, or nature project to be eye-popping (pun intended), Part I of All About Eyes provides a solid foundation. Download Project File.
