- [Voiceover] Hello, I'm Ian Robinson and welcome to Mograph Techniques: Animating to Music. In this course we'll build two different kinds of graphics: a quick bumper element and an identity spot. (fast music) First we'll start in After Effects and use a plugin from Red Giant called Trapcode Sound Keys. With that tool we'll be able to isolate different frequencies of our music track and create key frames that we can use to drive any key frameable perimeter in our project.
For example, the position and or rotation of an object or even effect controls like the hue of a color effect. We'll cover some of the most fundamental aspects of animating music like traditional editing techniques to change a simple 3D animation into multiple key pieces for our graphic bumper. Then of course we'll explore how to use the sound effector in Cinema 4D to form our logo resolve of our final brand identity spot. So let's get started with Mograph Techniques: Animating to Music.
