The end result of this tutorial is a video of a person lifting a parked car. The tutorial demonstrates how to create this super strength effect using Adobe After Effects. It is part of a series made by ajones8126 of super hero effects for Copilot.net. First, the narrator, AJ, creates a still from a clip of the parked car using time stretch. Then he trims a clip of himself "lifting" the absent car. He masks out the car, and pre-composes it into the other clip. The car is then carefully rotated into position following the movements of the lifter. AJ shows how to control the movement of the car with anchor points. Finally, a shadow for the car is created using a 3D layer and various lighting effects.
