Hello and welcome back, creating realistic underwater scene is quite challenging thing to do and this time around let us learn how to create the same using After Effects and we are also going to animate the scene by adding text in the scene and you won’t need any 3rd party plug-in to create this cool looking scene, instead we are going to using the utilities like CC Particle World, CC Radial Blur, CC Blobbylize, Bevel and Emboss, Fractal Noise, Fast Blur, Curves and Ramp, which are already available within After Effects application. The whole process is pretty simple and you can now create some really nice wallpapers as well. I have posted the final render image for your reference. So let us go ahead start creating the effect.

Step One
First let us start a new “Project” by going to “File >> New >> New Project” or you can just key-in the shortcut ‘Ctrl + Alt + N’ and then let us save the project by going to “File >> Save As” or you just key-in the shortcut ‘Ctrl + Shift + S’ and then name the project as ‘under-water-scene.aep’ and save it in the project-files folder. Now let us create a new “Composition” by going to “Composition >> New Composition” or you key-in the shortcut ‘Ctrl + N’. When ‘Composition Settings’ dialog box pops up name the comp as ‘Main-Comp’ and then change the property value of ‘Preset’ to ‘HDV/HDTV 720 25’ and then keep the ‘Duration’ to 10 sec long and then click ‘OK’ as shown below.

Step Two
Let us create a “Solid” by going to “Layer >> New >> Solid” or you can use the shortcut key ‘Ctrl + Y’ and when the ‘Solid Settings’ dialog box pops up name the solid as ‘BG’ and change the background color to black and the click on ‘Make Comp Size’ and then click ‘OK’ as shown below. {You can download the project file from the following link: project-files.rar}.
