After Effects Compositing Essentials: Advanced Matching and Looks (Lynda)

Incorporating a 3D camera into an otherwise 2D shot, or mixing 3D and 2D layers together brings 3D reality to the 2D screen. But there's more to it than simply adding a camera or camera track to a composition. You need to match the characteristics of a real, physical camera: replicating how it sees the world. You need to match the color of the original shot, or maybe even make creative adjustments. You might need to tweak the lighting, match motion blur, or compensate for lens distortion. You might even want to take advantage of high dynamic range (HDR) imaging techniques or experiment with different filmic looks. In this course, Mark Christiansen takes you through these scenarios and the next step in After Effects compositing: matching a shot and making it look not just realistic, but cinematic.

Intermediate | 4h 02m | 2.25 GB | Project Files | Software used: After Effects 12.0.2.52

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.
