After Effects: Principles of Motion Graphics with Ian Robinson covers some of the core principles used to create motion graphics, breaking them down into smaller groups of applied techniques in After Effects. The course explores everything from gathering inspiration to integrating traditional typography, transitional elements, animated textures, color, and more into motion graphics. Instructions for building a toolkit with templates and a style guide for future projects are also included. Exercise files accompany the course.
If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. So once you have the files copied to your computer, let me go ahead and show you how the files are organized. You should find all the media you would need under each individual chapter folder, and there is an assets folder where there are some special things that we'll talk about in the title. But for the most part, when you go to each individual chapter, you should find After Effects projects that are named after the project. Or in certain cases if there weren't After Effects projects, you'll find a folder referencing the specific file that we're working with.
So to work with the exercise files, open up your Exercise Files folder and navigate to the specific chapter that we're talking about. Now, if you're a monthly subscriber or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets. So, let's get started!
