i2c Presets Pack Updated

Hello everyone!

I know, its been a while since I posted. I've been hectically busy working on projects, and recently started working on the Ideas to Creations Presets Pack.
If you remember, the pack was initially announced to have 2 presests: Interfere and Scan. Well, I'm here to tell you that I've improved the pack by adding 4 more presets.
So that makes 6 presets: Interfere, Scan, Face Camera, 3Dfy, Lag and Spinner!

Thus far, Face Camera and Spinner are already out there, and an outdated Beta for Scan was released a while ago. I'm looking forward to releasing them and hearing from all of you what you think of the presets.
I'll have a demo uploaded soon. In the mean time, why not download and promote the pack with this wallpaper (1920x1080) and tell a friend with the share buttons below!

Thanks for stopping by! I gotta get back to work!

AfterEffects + Photoshop - Aligning Similar Layers

Hey people!
I was working on a cloning technique for a test video and, of course, it required various shots from the same angle that needed to be lined up before the masking could begin.

The problem was I had set the camera on a surface rather than using a tripod, so I ended up with slightly offset clips because the camera moved a few degrees every time I pressed Record.

Anyway, this isn't about how to shoot it, this is a quick tip on how to line up the shots in post! This process can be used for anything that involves aligning similar layers. Using Background Plates, creating clones, merging characters from separate shots etc.
This process would also apply to Photoshop, and any application that supports Blend Modes.
