One of my many “fun digital projects” is to create a HUD video. What is a HUD? It stands for Heads-Up Display.
While HUDs originate back to pre-World War II and primarily utilized in modern military fighter aircraft, the technology is becoming more prominent in mainstream use (primarily commercial aircraft and automobiles).
So, I wanted to learn how HUD interfaces are created in movies these days. I found this tutorial video on how to create an “Iron Man Style HUD” using Adobe After Effects. Pretty straight forward in my book. With any luck, I’ll be able to share a quick test during Spring Break.
