This postcard was created using After Effects. It combines a still image, the mountains, with a moving image, the video of the lights, and a graphic element, the text. I used to a mask to cover part of the picture so the video would be visible. I also used key frames to create different effects with the text, like the position of it and the way it fades out of the scene. The most complicated thing about this was getting the mask to cover just the right amount of the image, and timing the video to show up at the ideal parts also. It took a while to make sure the text was working properly, though I could have added some more effects to give it a better quality.
