There are some big advantages to using shape layers in After Effects: precise, fast rendering; compatibility with Illustrator; and smaller file sizes. Their vector quality means the artwork can be scaled to any size while remaining crisp and sharp. And they work with third-party effects and support layer styles. Take a deep dive and explore how to use the shape tools to communicate ideas in an uncluttered way and make complex animations simple. Eran Stern shows how to create custom wipe animations, use mathematical operations to animate shapes and paint them in over time, and morph between vector shapes.
Hi, I'm Eran Stern, and welcome to Motion Graphics: Shape Animation in After Effects. In this course, we'll explore the usage of Shape tools in After Effects in order to communicate an idea while visually keeping it simple. This course is based on a real world project which will help us to explore these techniques. I'll start by showing you how to create a custom wipe animation based on shapes, masks, and layer styles.
Then I'll show you how to setup a very cool animation using mathematical operations, which paint over time. We'll also explore one of the most common usage of motion graphics, which is repetitive animations. On top of this, we're also going to cover vector shaped morphing, plus plenty of other tools and techniques. Now, lets get started with Motion Graphics Shape Animation in After Effects.
