Join Angie Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating vector shapes with Adobe Capture app, part of Motion Graphic Design: Composition.
- As part of your CC subscription,…as well as having great creative desktop apps,…there are also mobile apps Adobe provides you with…that you can install on your iPad, iPhone,…or other mobile device.…One of my favorites is Adobe Capture,…and we're going to have a look at Adobe Capture now.…We're actually going to use it to save some shapes…for my creative project.…Now I want to have a pair of scissors,…and rather than try and draw the scissors in Illustrator,…what I've done here is I've put a pair of scissors…on a sheet of white paper, and if I click on the plus button…under shapes in Adobe Capture,…it will connect to my camera.…
With my camera selected, you'll see that…I'm placing it over a pair of scissors…that I've places on a white sheet of paper.…Now I can adjust the threshold of that,…and you'll see that as I adjust the threshold…and move the image around,…it's selecting different areas of the scissors.…So the idea here is to get as much contrast…between foreground and background as possible,…so it might take a little minute or two…
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.
