Lately I have been really enjoying the tutorials (also known as Summits) by a motion graphics artist, Matt Jylkka, of Mt. Mograph.
While his presentation style is a little “I don’t care”, like self-deprecating teenager, the content is great. They are long, one hour, tutorials that delve fully into popular motion graphics programs.
Summit 26 is an hour long adventure onto Illustrator and After Effects and how to use basic AE motion tools to transition between 4 common items. Ones that are often used in mographs. With tools along the way such as graph editor and of course the “F9 for easy ease” shortcut, you will learn a lot about After Effect and basic principals of motion graphics.
Here is my attempt at Slick Transitions. Enjoy.
We only captured a very small amount of video from my wedding day, some part of me regrets this but I had so much fun with what was captured that it is hard to hold on to that regret and with what was captured I was able to cut together a little teaser of the day. I won’t post that here as it is full of the faces of friends and family who may or may not want to be featured.
What I will show you is the titles I produced for the teaser. Made from our wedding stationary design that my husband and I made ourselves, I had the pleasure of bringing to life the retro beach feel with some puppet and layering elements.
As some of you may know I almost always make sure I learn a new skill when I take on a personal project. For this project it was the rope dynamics. It took a bit of searching to find a good tutorial for this effect as most videos just showed other peoples results or a template you could purchase/download. Finally I found a Tuts+ tutorial, they offer some really great tutorials across many digital skills.
Watch the tutorial HERE and my results below. Enjoy.
