Join Angie Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Particle effects, part of After Effects: Kinetic Typography Techniques (2011).
In this movie we're going to have a look at how particles can be used to create backgrounds. …That can evoke certain moods and feelings for our typographic animation. …Now, this animation is all about evoking memories from the past, and comparing …them to the current situation. And thinking about whether memories are …transient and, like, things that change and things that stay the same. …So, it's a lot about reflection back and forward to days gone by to the present moment.…
And what I've done here is I've used some um,INAUDIBLE footage to create that …kind of memory of so childhood summers. And we're in 12Main Setup and …Composition, and that's in the Creative After Effects AEP. …Which you can find in 05 Creative Effects, inside the Project Files folder. …So you can see in here, I have the Sydney footage. …I don't really want to be that literal throughout the whole piece, but I want to …continue to evoke feelings of certain periods.…
And if we move ahead here, just a little bit further forward. …
