    Hey guys!
    Just started with after effects not to long ago. I just want to see where im at in your eyes. I edited it in FCP then brought it into after effects to do the rest. I used motion tracking and brought in some effects.
    Just give me a 1-10.

    Editing was good 7/10 your camera recording and techniques could use some improvements.

    I'd say 9/10.

    I thought everything look excellent and believable except the cracks left by the bullets looked too blue and standout more than they need to...maybe lower the opacity and desaturate some.But that's just being nit-picky.

    I think it's very good though.

    You really need to add spider cracking to the whole screen to make it more believable. TV's don't just make a hole when shot.

    Add reverberation to the sound a bit. It just sounds too artificial.

    Also, there should be no delay between the bullet hit and the sound of the gun.
