Hello! My name is Ian Robinson, and I'd like to welcome you to After Effects: Principles of Motion Graphics. In this course, I'll show you how to create motion graphics with After Effects, but rather than primarily focusing on the tools, I'll show you some industry standard motion graphic workflows and techniques. We'll start by looking at the overall process of creating motion graphics, but quickly move on to some more conceptual techniques, like how to find inspiration. Then we'll move into some more hands-on training from working with type, textures, and colors, to lighting and camera animation techniques.
I'll also show you some of my personal go-to tips for some more common tasks, like creating title designs or making more dynamic transitions. Finally, we'll even cover the best practices for creating and delivering your final projects. So whether you're a full-time motion graphic designer or an editor looking to round out your skills, this course will prepare you for the next level.
