Join Angie Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying textures selectively with Set Selection, part of Motion Graphic Design: Composition.
- [Instructor] There are times where…you want to apply different materials…to different parts of your object.…We're in O5O13DO5.…If you have access to the exercise files,…you an open up the exercise files folder…and grab that file to work along with me.…If we open up the bus here, you'll see…there are various different objects within the bus.…We've got the body, which is this cube,…with cylinders for the wheels.…And then we've got these effects applied to those.…So I've got a taper object,…just creating that kind of taper effect at the top.…
A sheer object, and then smoothing on that.…Now, we can track materials directly onto the bus,…the same way as we did with the clouds.…But with the bus, we want different materials…on different elements.…So I'm just going to show you quickly how that was done.…If we open it up and select the cube,…you'll notice it shows me the basic,…editable shape of the cube.…And I'm in polygon mode.…And what we've done here is selected this group of polygons…just by clicking and dragging across them.…
In this course, learn about the most important principles of composition and how to use them in your designs. Instructor Angie Taylor puts these principles in context by taking you though the development of an online advertisement, and showcasing the different techniques used throughout her workflow. She demonstrates how to capture colors, patterns, and shapes using the Adobe Capture app; develop your rough ideas into layers that are ready for animating; compose design elements in After Effects; and create 3D artwork with Cinema 4D and After Effects.
