Welcome! My name is Alan Shisko, and I'm a freelance motion graphics artist working out of Toronto, Canada. I've been very lucky in my career to have had many inspiring teachers, and decided to start this blog to give back to the community that has enriched me both technically and aesthetically. Perhaps my words and images will inspire you to do the same! If you wish, take a minute to view my demo reel at Shisko.com, or view a comprehensive gallery of my past work Here.

TechTip: Knoll Light Factory pt. 2


It's easy enough to track a lens flare along a straight line, but what to do when you want it to trace an arc? Take a look at this quicktime (h264, 9:20, 22 megs) for my technique, and view the complete clip here. Bonus: This tip isn't necessarily exclusive to Knoll Light Factory and can be used with any plugin that has an emitter source, such as Trapcode Particular.
