Chris & Trish Meyer on Cartoonification

In Cartoonification at Artbeats, Chris & Trish Meyer have tips for getting better results from the “much-loved” cartoon looks plug-ins.

Just slapping these plug-ins at their default settings onto any piece of footage rarely gives satisfying results. In this article, we will discuss which clips are better candidates for cartoon treatments, walk through using the Cartoon effect that comes with After Effects CS4, and suggest ways to pre- and post-process the footage to achieve more interesting results.

The After Effects tutorial portion of this article uses Artbeats clip TEL130 HD from their Teen Life HD collection, which is available free to their newsletter subscribers in March 2009.
