Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Sizing a logo for video with Adobe Illustrator, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Terms and Technology.
- As you saw earlier, there are some certain…work flow benefits to getting a logo, or a vector…element sized to the approximate correct pixel count.…This'll reduce render time, and can work around…any limitations that your tool might have,…if it cannot continuously rasterize the vector file.…To do this, let's open up a logo file,…and get it ready for a video sized project.…I'm going to start by opening up this logo here.…One of the first things I'd like to point out,…is that this logo is in the CMYK color space.…
That's pretty common for design.…Now, if I select this logo, easiest way to…do that is to click on the dot next to it.…You'll see it makes a basic selection.…However, I'd like only part of the logo.…I'm going to lose the older iPod here.…So, instead, I could take the direct selection tool…and simply lasso around the parts that I want to keep.…And now it's an active selection.…I'll choose Edit, Copy, to load that to the clipboard,…and then File, New.…
As you just learned, there are several film…and video templates here.…
