    We spend a lot of time and effort trying to make our perfect CG renders look a little less perfect. Chromatic aberration is one of those tricks that every compositor has to pull out at some point, and it is also the perfect effect to use as a demonstration of the differences between the way After Effects and Nuke work.

    In this tutorial, I will show you how to achieve this effect in both After Effects and Nuke, and I will attempt to make a very strong case as to why Nuke is a better program for doing look-development and compositing. As I mention in the video, you can download a 15-day free trial of Nuke here:


    I also mention the e-book I am currently working on. The e-book will be a very in-depth step-by-step guide to building your own Motion Graphics Freelance career. My goal is to explain precisely how to get clients, make them happy, build a brand, and make six-figures. I will be giving away free business tips and other goodies to members of the School of Motion mailing list, so make sure you sign up!


    As always, comments and questions are welcome. Thanks you guys!
