Layer Effects like Film Grain, Damaged TV, Lens Flare 3D and More

When Eran Stern of Stern FX was asked by Boris FX to create an opener for the company's new video site, he says his marching orders were simple but broad. "I was only told to use BCC 8 to create something exciting," he says. Stern decided to throw as many plug-ins from the suite into the mix as he could.
In the video tutorial below, he explains how he settled on Beat Reactor, Damaged TV, Extruded Spline, Extruded Text, Film Glow, Film Grain, Layer Deformer, Lens Flare 3D, Organic Strands, Particle Array 3D, Scanline, and Videoscope for a spot with plenty of punch but enough realistic behaviors, animations and graphics to get its message across.
