Motion Graphics Tutorial Series. Motion graphics or graphics are created using video or animation technology and create an illusion of movement or change in the appearance of visual elements. Graphics will come out with sound when it comes to multimedia projects. Graphic art is usually manifested in digital electronic media, but it can also be created in hand-held media.
Motion Graphics Tutorial Series, or the science of combining motion and sound in today’s media, has come to the point where today, with the motion of fixed-vector images and the addition of Sound Effects, they can create unique productions that are unique in their nature and ultimately It leads to the production of TV and Internet advertising . Note that these products are generally about 10 seconds in terms of playback time. In the series of training courses
By Lynda Motion Graphics Tutorial Series using the software Photoshop, After Effects, Illustrator, etc. to design motion graphics explains.
Motion Graphics Loops 01: Photoshop Techniques
Learn how to create a looping animation for motion graphics and web design using Adobe Photoshop. Owen Lowery shows how to create animated loops in a variety of styles (including a hand-drawn look) and export them as different file types, suitable for web or video.
Along the way, you’ll learn how to set up a Photoshop workspace specifically for animation, animated layers in the Timeline, use onion skinning, and add color and texture to your animation. The results are exported as versatile animated GIFs and as a video that can be used in other motion graphics programs such as After Effects.
- – Working with the Photoshop Timeline panel and video layers
- – Animating frame by frame in Photoshop
- – Exporting animation and other media types to animated GIFs
- – Preparing After Effects animation loops for Photoshop
Motion Graphics Loops 02: After Effects Techniques
Learn to loop animation techniques for motion graphics and web design using Adobe After Effects. Owen Lowery shows you how to create a “never-ending” animated loop comprised of multiple nested looped elements and render the results as an animated GIF.
Along the way, you’ll learn how to work with AE expressions, loop footage with Time Remap, and use effects such as Echo and Offset to create background loops. At the end of the project, you’ll render the results as versatile animated GIFs, using Photoshop and the third-party AE Scripts plugin.
- – Working with loop expressions
- – Looping mash and shape paths
- – Combining expressions
- – Looping footage with Time Remap
- – Looping with effects
- – Rendering loops as animated GIFs
Motion Graphics Loops 03: Analog Techniques – The Phonotrope
Learn how to create looping animations using analog elements that can be filmed with a camera and then refined in programs like After Effects. The “phonotrope” technique shown in this course uses the rotations of a record player to create the illusion of motion. Owen Lowery provides instructions on creating paper animation loops by hand, then going back and forth from the computer to plan and execute a more advanced animation using Effects and Photoshop.
You’ll get hands-on and color, cut, paste, and draw and, along the way, learn about the logistics of player speeds, frames, video capture, and lighting. In the final chapter, you’ll get tips and inspiration for taking your phonotrope to the next level with transparency and mixed media.
- – Introducing the phonotrope
- – Understanding frame and speed settings
- – Experimenting with drawing and play dough
- – Using Illustrator and Photoshop to plan a phonotrope guide
- – Preparing After Effects for a phonotrope animation
- – Shooting, lighting, and editing animation footage
Creating Motion Graphics with Fusion
Producing great motion graphics requires a great toolset. Blackmagic Design Fusion provides a rich, full-featured compositing environment to bring together video footage, 3D animation, and graphics, text, and photos in a fully three-dimensional space. And best of all, the non-Studio version is completely free. In this course, Adam Crespi shows how to create an identity bumper in Studio 8 by compositing and animating a variety of assets.
Starting with the raw elements, he assembles a composition and animates a camera in the scene. From there, he adds lights, particles, a painted logo, and post effects, and then renders the final bumper. Each step of the process is rich with object lessons that are applicable to the variations that a compositor will face in the real world.
- – Importing and layering footage
- – Creating a camera and setting up a renderer
- – Animating cameras in 3D space
- – Adding a particle system
- – Lighting the scene
- – Adding effects like depth of field and motion blur
- – Painting a logo
- – Adding text
- – Rendering the final composite
Motion Graphic Design: Composition
It can seem as though professional artists and designers have an instinctive understanding of where to position elements on a screen. But these capabilities appear out of nowhere—many designers develop these skills by studying graphic design at art college or university.
The principles that are taught in these schools have been developed over centuries, and they offer a fairly foolproof set of methods. Self-taught designers often spend too much time experimenting with the placement of elements on screens, using a trial and error approach to design that can be slow and unproductive.
In this course, learn about the most important principles of composition and how to use them in your designs. Instructor Angie Taylor puts these principles in context by taking you through the development of an online advertisement and showcasing the different techniques used throughout her workflow. She demonstrates how to capture colors, patterns, and shapes using the Adobe Capture app; develop your rough ideas into layers that are ready for animating; compose design elements in After Effects, and create 3D artwork with Cinema 4D and After Effects.
- – Using color, contrast, line, and shape
- – Sampling colors from photographs
- – Creating swatch groups in Adobe Illustrator
- – Adding dimension to space, motion, and depth
- – Creating vector shapes with the Adobe Capture app
- – Coloring artwork in Adobe Draw
- – Illustrator layer structure for 2D animation
- – Composing design elements in After Effects
- – When to use Cinema 4D for 2D-style animation
- – Creating 3D artwork for motion graphics
- – Adding depth to 3D objects with shading
