Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the anatomy of accents and highlights, part of After Effects Guru: Animating Typography.
…Now, I'm going to tell this to you now, and…I"m sure I'll tell it to you in the future.…But the most important thing about accents…and highlights has to do with pre-planning.…You want to make sure you know exactly what it is that…you're going to be accenting or what you'd like to highlight because,…in most cases, if it's something that's complex or something that's really…important, you'll probably need to build the animation around that key accent.…So, let's jump in so I can show you some of the different…accents and highlights that we'll be…creating as we move throughout this course.…
So, as we look at the graphics,…you'll notice most of these accents and highlights…were created by using multiple layers and…using blend modes to accent those specific highlights.…Also, making use of high-dynamic-range, 32-bit float definitely will…add a little bit more pop to those animations.…And, of course, when you're talking about animation, you can always…just accent an animation by moving a specific element by itself.…
