Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Dissecting high-energy animation, part of After Effects Guru: Animating Typography.
…When it comes time to create some…high-energy animations, you'll notice some consistent things…repeated throughout every single version of a…high impact spot you'll see just about anywhere.…So in this video, I just want to show you some…of the different things that we'll be creating throughout this course.…And most importantly, I want to show you some of the features…that will definitely help you create your next high-energy motion graphic.…So in looking at the animations that we're creating with quote, unquote high…energy, you'll notice that there are a…lot of highlighted, flashing glows and highlights.…
So color is one way.…High dynamic range is another thing that…actually helps accentuate those highlights and glows.…And then of course, drastic movement.…Now whether that movement is sharp or…smoothed out, if something's moving across the screen…in a relatively fast motion, usually that creates…some semblance of high energy to that animation.…
