Even if you're not comfortable with scripting or coding, you may still want to take a look at expressions. They are like little scripts that trigger changes to layer properties, and they can save you time, make your work more flexible, and open up new creative possibilities. In this course, motion graphic designer Angie Taylor shows you how to make Adobe After Effects expressions work for you, starting with building expressions with the pick whip. Then she introduces javascript-based math expressions, which allow you to adjust timing and movement, and her favorite "no brainer" expressions, such as property linking and connecting camera focus to layers. Plus, discover how to react to sound, play with color, format text, and link 2D and 3D properties.

In this set of tutorials, we’ll go through the process of animating three logos in After Effects. Logo animations can be difficult to create without the proper preparation in the program they were originally designed in, so we take the first few lessons of the course to split apart the assets in Illustrator. This way, when they’re imported to After Effects, we have a much easier time animating them. We learn techniques for using the Puppet tool and some of the challenges that come along with that tool. We also use expressions and sliders as well as some parenting chains to create a paper-doll style rig. Each of the three logos present a unique challenge, and have lots of different techniques to cover so that when you’re faced with a logo to animate on your own, you’ll be ready for anything. By the end of this course, you’ll have a great understanding of the methods for animating 2D logos and what it takes to give them realistic movements. If you’re serious about adding logo animations to your motion design body of work, this course is a must-watch.

After Effects Compositing Essentials: Matching Foreground to Background (Lynda)
Intermediate | 2h 00m | 3.35 GB | Project Files | Software used: After Effects CINEMA 4D
Genre: E-learning

 

Creating a moving shot that is made up of disparate elements and looks as though it was taken all at once, with a single camera, is the very core of visual effects compositing. To make the effect look natural, compositors also need a deep understanding of how to match color, light, and phenomena specific to the camera, including grain and depth of field. Matching requires no special knack; for example, you can learn to effectively match color even if you have trouble seeing color accurately. So join Mark Christiansen, as he teaches you how to composite 2D or 3D foreground objects to a background scene with After Effects and seamlessly match light, color, depth of field, and noise, so that every element looks natural.
