Harmonize your motion graphics with music. This project-based course shows how to complete two mograph assignments, a bumper graphic and identity spot, and explains how to transition the tools and techniques to your own projects. Author Ian Robinson starts in Adobe After Effects with Trapcode Sound Keys—isolating frequencies and creating related keyframes that allow you to drive properties like the position, rotation, or even the hue of an object. Then learn traditional editing techniques to transform a 3D animation into multiple pieces for the bumper, and migrate to CINEMA 4D and use the Sound Effector to resolve the logo for the identity spot.
(MUSIC). Hello, I'm Ian Robinson and welcome to Mograph Techniques, Animating to Music. In this course, we'll build two different kinds of graphics, a quick bumper element and an identity spot. (MUSIC) First, we'll start in After Effects, and use a plug-in from Red Giant called Trap Code Sound Keys. With that tool, we'll be able to isolate different frequencies of our music track, and create key frames that we can use to drive any key frameable parameter in our project.
For example, the position and/or rotation of an object, or even effect controls like the hue of a color effect. We'll cover some of the most fundamental aspects of animating music like traditional editing techniques to change a simple 3D animation into multiple key pieces for our graphic bumper. Then of course we'll explore how to use the sound effector in Cinema 4D, to form our logo resolve for our final brand identity spot. So, let's get started with Mograph Techniques, Animating to Music.
