Learn the fundamentals of working with type: compositing type, animating type, and creating 3D text and logos.
- Hi. My name's Rich Harrington, and welcome to the series Motion Graphics for Video. We're going to be taking a look today at specifically designing with type. Now to do this, I'm going to rely upon two key programs, both Photoshop and After Effects, and these apps are usable by a wide range of folks, whether you're a motion graphic artist or a video editor. I'll also jump into Adobe Premier Pro to illustrate some of the things that can be done in a non-linear editing tool. Now, in this case, because all three apps are made by Adobe, you'll see some particularly excellent integration, as they're able to share files and seamlessly hand-off material in between.
But even if Adobe Premier Pro is not your home-base for editing, you'll still learn a bunch of skills that are going to be useful inside of Photoshop and After Effects. So, with that in mind, let's start to explore some techniques.
