How to Add Kato-Vision to Your Movies with After Effects (As Seen in "The Green Hornet")
Seth Rogen tackles the comedic role of Britt Reid, aka Green Hornet, but really, what we're all waiting for makes the Green Hornet look like a Yellow Jacket, and that's Kato, his trusty ass-kicking sidekick. Kato's such a badass that they even gave him his own visual signature effect in the movie, dubbed Kato-Vision.
Kato's so-called superpower is a result of his masterful martial arts training, where he can instantly survey a scene, neutralizing every threat in seconds. The Kato-Vision special effect was specifically created for The Green Hornet's 3D debut.
But guess what?
Okay, so After Effects can be pretty expensive ($1,000), but you can download a free 30-day trial at Adobe's website. If you're a student, it's only going to cost you about $350.
