Create A Side-Scrolling Background

This is really cool.

Not just because it feels like a retro side-scrolling adventure video game…

But because it’s a great looking effect that is versatile, inventive, infinitely customizable, and needs no keyframes.

By following this video you’ll be able to create an effective background you can use in anything from commercials to YouTube to music videos.

I can see it being really useful for lots of motion graphics and social media content.

Some of the steps include:

  • Adding Fast Noise
  • Using a custom tool and building expressions
  • Making it move
  • Adding shadow, background, parallax
  • Adding a title
  • Changing everything to create a new version

If you use it for nothing else, I found this was a fascinating example of the power of expressions in Fusion.
