Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video 016 Animating type using parenting, part of Design in Motion.
Hi! Rob Garrott here and welcome to Design in Motion, the weekly series where we…explore important fundamentals in the world of motion graphics.…The idea of grouping objects together is not new at all.…It existed in print applications like Adobe Illustrator for a very long time.…After Effects though takes the idea of grouping objects together one step…further, making it an essential animation tool.…Let's check it out.…So our goal is to create this animation.…I am going to do a little RAM preview here and let it play through a couple of…times, and I'm going to hit zero on the numeric keypad.…
This type of animation is impossible to do without parenting.…Let me just quickly review what parenting is in After Effects.…I've got a little start file here and I am going to scrub through this and…what I have here is a square that is rotating around its center and I have a star right next to it.…Now I want to start to move around the square as it's rotating and I am going to…use parenting to do that.…
