When animating a logo, it's usually easier to start at the end and work backwards, learn about how in this video. Andy demonstrates how to create keyframes and work with the timeline to roughly block out an animation.
- [Instructor] In this movie we're going to block out … the animation of this icon. … First let's just clean up the project panel. … So I'm going to put the layers folder, … this is the Illustrator layers, … we're going to put that into our source folder … and we'll just move the logo animation composition … into the comps folder, let's just twirl up the source folder … and we can now begin to animate. … So we'll just give ourselves a bit of room … by bringing this up so we can see all our layers … in the time line. … So what we want to do is make this hexagon form … the icon as we see it here. … We'll have to do a little bit of scaling, … rotating and things like that … and so let's get to work by first thinking about … how we're going to bring in this element … in an interesting way. … So I want to in fact scale this up … by quite a bit, now I'm going to scale it up … by about 600% and one of the first things you'll notice … by scaling it up this much is that we seem to get … a soft line, now we're working with vectors …
