Frozen Time VFX Breakdown (Element 3D Tutorial)

Updated: Nov 28, 2019

Hi everyone, and welcome to my brand new channel! Today we're looking at how to make a Frozen Time effect using After Effects and Video Copilot's Element 3D!

In this video, we're going to recreate a scene from one of my recent music videos, where Autumn leaves stop falling and time freezes, all whilst the camera keeps on moving... Ooh, trippy!! :D
