    Always amazed at the things that can be done in Photoshop..

  13. Cool trick corey, I just love this effect.

  14. You’ve already learned how to create looping backgrounds using After Effects; however, things are going to get better with a little teamwork. By combining the power of Photoshop and After Effects, you can create even more customized looping backgrounds. Because Photoshop is a rich graphics tool, much more variety can be had in the final result.
