I'm here to help you with any questions you may have wishing you all the best looking forward to seeing you inside. 2. After Effects CC Interface & Workspace: Hey, guys, In this lecture, we will start off by navigating the workspace on learning some essential key turns and basic features that will help you become familiar with Adobe after effects CC layout. So basically, it starts off with a get started menu, and from here you can create new project open recent projects, or you can choose not to do anything and just close it if you want to and start working on your after effects window. So once he opened your adobe after Effects program, you will notice that there are a bunch off panels that make up the interface after effects . But the most important three that I want you to focus on are the project panel, the composition panel on the timeline. Also, I want you to know that when I click on the different panels I get, ah, highlight letting me know that that panel is active. The project panel is the panel that you will use to import and organize all the assets you'll be using in your after effects project. Whenever you want to import anything to after effects, double click here, then go to the folder where your items are safe select any, then click a point. Now when you create a group of layers, you will actually be creating a thing called a composition. And the composition is represented here in the composition panel and the compositions. Layers will be represented down here in the time like so now, to be able to create any layers here on your timeline, you must first create a new composition and to create a new composition, go to composition in the menu more and select new composition. Or you can click on new composition here, or simply hit control or command and on keyboard. This will open up the new composition settings window, and here you can set some settings, like the quality dimensions, the name, duration and color. Once you have set this according to preference, click OK to start now. Here I have my tools bar where I can, for instance, select the text tool quicker my composition and start writing my text. Say, for instance, you want to adjust your text, phone type, size and color. Here all you have to do a select text layer and go to the character panel and start at just in your text whenever you couldn't find any panel already displayed on your interface. Simply go to the window menu bar and you will find it there. Also. I have some shapes in my tools bar that I can select, then click and drag on my composition to start doing. Also. Another important panel is the effects and precepts, which we will use throughout are coming lectures. Here. You can find all the effects that you can apply on any layer on your timeline. Just select the effect than dragon. Drop it on the layer, and that will open up the effects Control settings window where you can adjust any field related to this effect. So this is simply a very quick overview about adobe after effects interface that you need to know for now. In order to proceed with this course and be able to follow up with the projects that we are gonna be creating together later on in the next lecture, I'll be introducing you to the five basic transforms he framing an easy's Thank you so much for watching and I'll see you next, Doctor 3. The Five Basic Transforms, Keyframing & Easy Ease: Hey, guys will come back. So creating an animation is the main reason why we use after effects and this lecture. We will learn the basics off the following essential transform controls, which are position, opacity, scale, rotation and anchor point key frames and easy East. So in order to explain each point, I'll create a new composition, soul hit control or command and and click OK, then create a new solid layer. It's all make right. Click here on the Timeline Select New Fallon. The solid settings window will appear. Give it a name Santee size off the solid layer or choose make composition signs and give it a color you like, think like OK, now you can see a new layer called rent and the rectangle shape on the composition panel. One of the transform controls in after effects is the position. By selecting a layer and hitting P, the position will pop up the numbers next to it, or the X and Y values, which relate to the left and top off the composition. The values show the distance between the anchor point of our solid and the left and top off the composition. You can change the X and Y values under by dragon gets here or simply make a quick and insert the value that you won't. Okay, now, by selecting a layer and hitting t, the opacity will pop up. It is the Onley shortcut which is not beginning with the first letter. You can change the opacity from 100% which means the forages opaque to 0% which means the footage is transparent. Another transform control, you should know is this scale which is selectable by hitting s. This kill is also modifiable between 100% which means full size and 0% which means it's gone now by hitting are the rotation will pop up the value on the right side is the degree you rotated your footage. After rotating more than 360 degree, the left side will change toe one which shows a full rotation by entering three. The footage will rotate three times. Next is the anchor point, which is selectable by hitting a It is the geometric reference and rotation CenterPoint of layer. You can change the anchor point to the corner of a rectangle or wherever you wanted to be, and this by using a tool here called Pan behind, too. By doing that, the rotation will change, since it normally rotates around the anchor point. Often times you want to change more than one off the transform controls. When hitting P, the position will pop up. As we know, by hitting us, the position will disappear on the scale will pop up to select them and be able to change their values. At the same time, you have to hit the shortcuts combined with shift key. So, for example, if I select the layer than hit pee on my keyboard to get the position control, and now I want to get the skill control as well. So I'll hit. Shift us on keyword to get this kill control, and now I can change both of them at the same time. So now we have learned how toe open up these controls and now we want to. Any made are solid layer, so here I'll change the scale value to 50%. This is how our square looks. After scaling it down to 50% in the center of our square, you can see the anchor point should take a look to the position values. You can see that although we changed our size, the position didn't change. Since it refers to the anchor point. Now, we will set our first key frame, which is the first date that will holds three information about the adjustments we made. At this point, you can animate all of the controls we discussed so far To set a key frame, you need to click on the stopwatch. This creates a key frame. Now grab the time indicator and drag it to one second. You can either do this or you can simply come here, click on the current time display and entered the time you want your time indicator to go. So here I want to go toe one second, so I simply enter one here. Now I'll change this kill value. Say I'll change the scale value to 65% and noticed that once you change, the value after effects will create a new key frame or a second state that will hold new information or values. So this is our solid shape at 50% at the beginning of our timeline, and this is our shape at 65% at one second so when you use key frames to create a change over time, you typically use at least two key frames, one for the state at the beginning, off the change and one for the new state at the end of the change. Another way to create a new key frame is by clicking on the diamond on the left side, then change the value. Make sure not to cook on the stopwatch after creating your key frames, because by doing so, all your key frames will be deleted. A very interesting assistance off after effects is the easy, easy key frame. By choosing it, the animation will come toe a smoother, and it will slow down a bit before stopping at the new size or position. You can either select a key frame and hit F nine, or you can right click Go to Key Frame assistant Easy's Let me explain this more in order to make it more clear for you all had control or command Z to go back. Now if I selected these two diamond shaped icon and then go here, click on this icon, you will find a graph editor opened. Make sure it is these peak graph editor and not any other graph editor. So here you would see that this pain is constant here. When I change this to Eazy E's Notice a change in the speed graph here it became smoother at and slowing down a little bit before stopping at the new sides. Or position. Also noticed that when selecting Eazy E's key frame, the little diamond will change. It's appearance toe, a symbol similar to a Sam glass. So now we have learned about the five basic transport he framing an easy East. In the next lecture, I'll be introducing you toe the Move Anchor Point panel, which is another, more accurate option that you can use to move the anchor point off any layer instead off the pan behind. Two. I'll show you how to install it and use it. If you do have any questions so far, or if anything is unclear, please do not hesitate to post your questions on the discussion board. Thank you so much for watching and I'll see you guys next picture 4. Move Anchor Point Panel Overview: Hey, guys, welcome back in this lecture, I'll show you how to use three Move anchor Point script to quickly edit your layer anchor points and improve our anchor point workflow. Enough traffic. We talked a little bit in the last lecture about how you can snap your anchor point to a specific part of your frame by moving it around manually, using the pan behind tool from the toolbar. But there is actually a script that does it for you. This move Anchor Point script is a panel that I have installed, and you can just cook these barons that will automatically put the anchor point wherever you want it. So let me show how you can install this. First, you will go to the external resources off this lecture where you'll find a link, go to this Link website and download the Anchor Point script. It will open up a fine now to install it. All you have to do is to go to your adobe after effects application folder on your computer , then go under scripts, the open scripts you I panels, Then move the files that you have installed the J as X Files and the map images. Move that into the script. You I Panels folder. Then you have to close your after effects program and open it again. Then go up to window in the menu bar and you will see this move Anchor point panel. Click on Earth and it will open up the move Anchor Point panel. And now, whenever you have a new layer and you need to automatically have an anchor point or quickly move an anchor point with center or wherever you can always use that script. Thank you so much for watching and L for you next lecture. 5. Introducing Track Mattes: Hey, guys, welcome back in this lecture. I want to show you how track mats work in after effects because we are going to use track math in the upcoming local animation projects that we're going to create together throughout the schools. In order to explain this more and make it clear for you, let me first import a logo here. Then I'm dragged down to my time long and scale it up a bit. And now I'll draw a rectangle that is half black and half going. So here also left the rectangle from the tools bore. Then click on so year and Select Lean Year Grady in thanks like Okay. And then come here Quick on the color sports decided a make up half black, half white By dragging this point to center like this, great things look OK now here all draw a rectangle that covers up a part of my logo here. I'll also create a solid layer off a red color to make things clear for you here. Now make sure that the rectangle shape layer is set above the local earlier on the timeline here and this because of after effects, you use track matte from the bottom layer to the layer above. So as you can see here, the first layer doesn't have the options for track months. And this because there is no layer above it if you can see the track. MATTE column on your time. Longview used the toggle switches mood, but a year or simply hit F four on your keyboard. Okay, so here designed the logo here in the track. Matte column We have four options here, so basically we have two types off track mats in after effects. We have the Alfa Math Journal, also Matt on Alphonse Bird, and we have the Loom Amat Channel Loom Amat Loomer inferred The difference between them is that the Alfa Matt sold out pixels from an image or text, while UMA Matt uses white color. So here, if I chose aluminum that the white part of our shape layer will reveal the part of the low bucatini and any other part the layer that is placed outside the white pork, it will make it invisible. But if I chose alumina inverted man, everything off the local ear that is placed outside the white part will be visible. While any part of the logo placed inside the white part will be invisible. Yes, if we chose also Matt, it will review the whole area off the logo that's placed inside our shape layer here. And that's because our logo is filled with pixels, and also map fills out the Pixies. It doesn't really care about the colors. So here, any part off the logo placed inside this Rick Tangle will be revealed, and any other part off this low group that is placed outside the shapewear will be invisible. And if we chose Alfa inverted math, it will make any port off the logo that is placed outside this rectangle visible, and the other part of the logo that is placed inside the rectangle will be invisible. Great. So this is how track mats work in after effects can review different objects or portions off lives I hope you're enjoying so far. If you do have any questions or if anything, that is unclear. Please post your question on the discussion board, and I'll reply as soon as often. Thank you so much for watching and looking forward to seeing you next lecture 6. Liquid Logo Animation : Create & Animate Liquid Lines: Hey, guys, in this lecture, I'm going to show you how to create this nice looking liquid logo animation. So let's get started. First thing. I'll create a new composition by heading Control for Command, and I'll call it a liquid logo animation of just any settings you want. Thanks like. Okay, now I'll create a new solid by hearing control or command. Why? I'll call it a liquid lines, and I'll set its color to black now. Also looked the pen tool from the toolbar. Make sure your liquid lines layer is selected, then start drawing a path using thiopental. Please note the tour line will follow this path, so make sure you are making it exactly as you want toe Any major life for me, I'll be using this path shape. You can adjust the curve of your path after drawing it by dragging the handles off each anchor point using the selection tool. All make these curves as round as possible. Now select your liquid lines. Layer impressed em on keyboard to get the mask path. We are going to use this mask path to any made our line. But before doing this, I'll go to the Effects and Precepts panel and search for an effect Cold CC particle system to selected and then drag and drop it on your liquid lines layer. And once applied, it will create a nice looking particles. Now let's go to the Effect settings panel here and just a few settings in order to make it look like a life. So here I'll change the birth rate toe around 50. Set the longevity to 0.6. Please note that any changes applied the Here you will be able to see it right away on your composition here. Now I'll open up this physics tab and change the velocity of zero. Also, I'll set the animation type to work, and maybe I'll change the gravity to zero. And as you can see here, this has made it look around. Great. Now we're going toe animated according to the path that we have created. So I'll drag my time indicators of beginning of my timeline. Select this mask path and hit control or command. See toe. Copy it. No open effects here. The open cc particle effect. Then open up This producer top The producer simply is the point from where the particles are being produced now. Select the position and hit control or command V to paste the mask path on it. Now, if you play this, you would see that are particles year are moving along the path that we have created yet Please know that you cannot adjust the position again. After pasting theme, ask Pat because it has converted our mask path into key frames. As you can see you and thats why are particles are moving now? Okay, great Now all select all those key frames and add Easy is by either hitting F nine on keyboard or right click he frame assistant Easy's Now all go to the graph editor here and in the speed graph editor. I'll drag this point a bit here on this to make the animation speed faster at the end compared to the starting now back to the Effect Settings panel here. And let's up just a few more settings to reach the shape that we want for our project here . So open up particle time here and I will change the particle type for the fade IDs here that l set the death size to zero in order to create a tale of it, as you can see here. And also ill said the size variation 200%. Now I'll change the opacity map to Constant and also increase the mask. Opacity. 200%. Great. Now I'm going to change the particles colors so quick on any of these colors watches and choose the color you want. This is according to a perfect for me. I'll choose colors that would match the logo that I'll be adding later on here now. All set the death color to the same color as well. Now I'll go to the effects and presets panel and search for an effect called Simple Chalker Dragon, Drop it on the liquid lines layer here and now in the effect settings panel our increase the chalk Mato 40. So what has this effect done? If you take a look on our particles line, you would see that it became a single line. Now there are no particles inside it. Also, it has a flat look. Now you can also control the length off this line by increasing the longevity Also increase the birth rate a bit. Now. This looks good to me. Okay, great. So far so good. No, I want to make this line to disappear at the end of our animation here. So, Dr my time indicator here. Quick on the stopwatch beside birth. Great. Now I'll go six frames forward then change in the birth. Great value to zero. So as you can see here, the line is disappearing. Yet we need to match the timing here. Salt. Select those key frames and dragged them a bit to the left. Here. Now this looks perfect. Great. Let's quick on the ramp review and see what we have so far. This looks very good to me. Now I'll make another copy off this liquid lines layer. It's all selected and had control or command the on keyword. I'll drag the bottom liquid lines layer to the right of it so that they would have different animation time. Now I'll change the color off this top liquid line layer. Choose any color you want thinking, OK, now in the bottom, look would layer. I'll increase the chalk map so that the bottom line would be sinner than the top one, as you can see. So if you play this, you would get this nice looking line with a tail attached to it free Now also looked these two layers that create a copy by hair in control or Command Z. Then all right, quick here, go To transform and select. Full por is santo Now this has created a nice one here. But this is not what we need. It's all right Click again. Go to transform and select flip vert. Now, as you can see here, this has created the look that we want for our project. Now let's change a few settings off them to make them look a bit different from each other . So that would make it look more organic and more natural. Always the top player as this, and select the bottom layer here and in the Effect settings panel. I'll set the chalk mad to 75. I'll increase the velocity to open to decreased in heard velocity to negative 45. Maybe set it to negative 43. No, this looks better. You can definitely change whatever settings you want here to make them look different. Great. Now we have these wonderful liquid lines animation In the next lecture, we're going to create a nice splash ring here. I hope here enjoying so far. Thank you so much for watching. And I'll see you next sector 7. Liquid Logo Animation : Add Splash Ring: Hey, guys will come back. And this Lechter will be proceeding with our liquid logo animation and this by adding a splash rink. So first thing I'm going to do here is that I'll drive my time in the cater here. Make sure toe on, select all your layers, then go to the tools bar here and select the Alps tool. I'll send the full to none the stroke to salt color, and I will choose a color. You are free to choose the color you want, Finnell said. The stroke size to 50. Now I'll come here, hold down shift King, then click on drag on my composition to create a perfect around stroke circle. Now I'll align it to the center. Using the online panel, I'll rename the shape layer to first. It's also let the layer hit return on keyboard type and verse, then hit Returned again. Now we are ready to any Maine this spring, so open up, callups one here, then go to stroke one. And as you can see here, we have stroke widths control. So here I'll drag my time indicator toe where I want my animation to start. I'll send the scale value to zero. Then click on the stopwatch besides kill, then go forward and then said the skill value. 200. Now go up to the stroke woods. Click on the stopwatch beside It didn't go forward then 70 stroke widths to zero. If you played now, you would see their birds. The animation now also like this burst layer, hit you on keyboard to get all the key frames. I'll select those talk with key frames and dragged the method left so it would match the skill. Timing. Great. Now this looks good to me. So now also left all key frames and add Eazy E's by either hitting F nine on keyboard or right quick key frame assistance. Easy, easy Now Let's come the ramp a few and see what we have so far, we'll hear the burst. Animation is a bit faster. We need to slow with them. So hold down my key and drank those key friends to the right like this to make it slower. Let's play again and see Well, this looks much better to me. Great. Now I'll go to the effects and presets. Barrow and search for an If I called rough in ages. Dragon. Drop it on the first layer. Now I'll go to the effects settings panel and I'll change the border to 30 and said the end Shortness 10. Now, if you cook on the ramp review, we would see that our circle burst is now reacting like a smoke or a splash. Spring 50. Now let's make a copy of it so selected and hit control or command theon keyboard. And now I'll drive this burst player a bit to the left and also all change its color. I'm following the same colors as my local has, and now I'll drive this layer below the 1st 1 Great. So far, so good. Now I want this first layer to stay longer than the other one. It's also let the layer and hit you on keyboard to get all the key frames. I'll select those and key frames and dragged them a bit to the right to make their burst animation slower. Now let's become the ramp review and see what we have so far. Perfect. Please note that you are free to do whatever animation you'd like to do. I'm just showing you the way. Great. Now we are ready to move to the final step, which is adding an animating the logo. And this is exactly what we are going to do next. Sector Thank you so much for watching are looking forward to seeing you next lecture. 8. Liquid Logo Animation : Add & Animate Your Logo & Finalize Your Project: Hey, guys, in this lecture, we are proceeding with the final part. Are a liquid logo animation, and this By adding our local year, you are free to add text instead if you want to process it the same for both. So now import my logo. So double quick here on the project panel. So, like my logo to import, and then I'll drag it down to the timeline. Here, I'll rename it to logo. So hit return on keyboard type in low growth and hit Return again. Now I'll hit us on keyboard to get this kill control and skill it down a bit. Great. Now let's start any meeting our look. I'll send the time indicator toe where these burst animation start now I'll go to the effects and Presets panel and search for an effect called Zoom Wobbling Dragon. Drop it on the local layer and once applied your local start any mating right away. Great. Now let's just the animation timing to make it better. Select the logo, then hit you on keyboard to get all the key frames, select the key frames and go to the graph editor. And in the speed graph, I'll drag this point inward here. And then I'll drag this one to the right like this in order to make it slower. Perfect. Now you can add any background off your choice if you want to. So here I'll add Ah, falling layer. I'll make it white. Think like, OK, then I'll drag it to the bottom of my timelines back here and now I'll go to the Effect and Presets panel and search for an effect. Cold Grady in Ramp Dragon. Drop it on my background solid layer. And here in the Effect Settings panel, I'll change this black color by clicking on the color swatch beside it. I'll choose a color that would match my logo. Then I'll change the type here to radio. And now I'll drag the Y position off this color downwards like this. Great. Let's click on the ramp review and see what we have. Perfect. Now we have a wonderful liquid logo animation. If you do have any questions or if anything, that is unclear, Please post your question on the discussion board and all reply as soon as possible. I hope you're enjoying so far. Thank you so much for watching. Looking forward to seeing you next lecture 9. Electric Strokes Logo Reveal : Create Animated Random Electric Strokes: Hey, guys will come back and this lecture will be starting a new logo animation project. Together we'll create this nice electric strokes logo animation. So let's go start first thing I'll had control or command and on keyboard to create a new composition. Then click. OK, now I'll import my logo. Saul Double could hear on the project. Pounds import my logo, then dragon. Drop it on my timeline here and now I'll be composed this local air by selecting it, then hitting shift control or command See on keyboard. I'll call it logo, then click. OK, why I am pre composing the logo because any time you want to change your local, you can simply open it and change your logo toe. Whatever you want and any changes you will make won't affect any animation you have previously applied. Now I'll go to the effects and presets panel and search war in effect, Cold Vegas's drag and drop put on my local layer here. They don't go to the Effect Settings panel here. Any changes applying here? You would see its impact right away in your composition here, so first thing I'll change the blend mood too transparent this Sigmund's toe one. I'll also set the wet to one and hardness 2.5, and here I'll check this random vase check box for random movements and in the segment distribution. I'll set it to bunched. You can also give it a different color of your choice. In my case, a. Leave it as is where this layer now open up the image contours here and change render to select controls. And now I'll add an expression to this selected Contours field and this by holding down all key on Heward. Then click on the stopwatch was signed this feud, and this will open up a text field, as you can see here so we could type in our expression. So what is an expression? So as we all know that after effects is a great tool for prototyping you I animations. But we are always looking for ways to speed up. Our work for after effects comes with support for expressions which create relationships between layer properties or key frames so the designer can animate layers without defining each key frame by hand. Adobe based their expression language on Java script to be typed in the text field opens here Basically. So here I'll type and wiggle. Open record 10 coma 20. Then Coz practice and this expression will add a random movement here. It states that every 10 times a second the logo should we go 20 pixels on the X and Y axis . The first number is how many times a second on the second number is the amount of work. Full movement. Great. Now I'm going toe. Any made the length field here, so I'll drag my time indicator through beginning on my timeline senti length value to zero , then click on the stopwatch beside INT, then drag my time indicator to five seconds and set the lens value to one now also in the layer than hit you you on keyboard. To get all animated properties, select both key frames and add the Easy East by either hitting F nine or keyboard or right click here. Key frame assistant. Easy East. Now let's click on the Iraq Preview and see what we have so far. Okay, so far, so good. Now I'm going toe apply another expression script, but this time on the irritation field here. So hold down all key quick on the stopwatch decided and type in the text field here. Time multiplied by 500 and this will add a time loop in rotation as he can see you Now I'll go to the effects and presets panel and search for an effect called Go Dragon. Drop it, my local layer here, and this will add a nice glowing look to our logo. I'll go with the default settings were now, but definitely you are free to change any off thes settings. According to her performance. Now I'll create a duplicate of this local pre composition layer so selected and hit control or command Z on keyboard. And now let's change some settings here in order to make it look more dynamic. So here I'll change the color, choose any color you want and now also like the layer and hit you you on keyboard to get all the animated properties, I'll change the time here and the wiggle expression to 20 and in the time expression will change time to negative 500. Also, I'll make the length any mission here a bit slower on this by dragging this key frame to the right here. Now let's quick on the ramp review and see what we have so hard looks perfect. Now let's add more copies off this toe. Add more detail ng work, Sosa, Lengthen layer and had control or command V. And here all change its timing by dragging this layer a bit to the left. Here and now I'll go to the Effects settings panel, all 70 west to open. Fife and I will change the color as well, and now also let the layer and hit you you keyboard to get all the enemy to properties. I'll change the time here to negative 200 and now I'll add another Dubica by selecting this layer and hit him. Control or command Z on keyboard hits you you on keyboard to get all the animated properties, I'll change time here to 200. Then in the Effects Settings panel will choose a different color, and again, I'll create another copy by selecting this'll, a ER and hidden control or command V. I'll drag. It's in point toe 13 frames here to change the timing, and I will change the color as well. Now let's go. Come the ramp review and see what we have so far Fisher. Now I want to create a kind of like an electric shock wave here. Salt. Select this layer and create a duplicate by hand control or command Z on keyboard. I'll drag it a bit to the left here to change the timing, and now I'll go to the effects of presets panel and search for, in effect, cold CC, Mr Mercury Dragon. Drop it on this layer. And here in the effect settings window, I'll set Radius X and Y to zero. I'll solo this layer for now so you could see what we are doing. It is this one here. Now I'll change the velocity to five. The birth rate to four. The launch of its 23 also all set the gravity to zero and the animation to direction. You are free to choose another values. It is totally according to preference. I'll also change the career as well. Great. Now I'll go back toe all my layers here on Let's click on the Iraq Preview and see what we have. Fishing. This looks so good to me. Now we are ready to add some sparks here, and this is exactly what we're going to do. next lecture. I hope you're enjoying. So for if you do have any questions, please feel free to ask. I'm always you to help. Thank you so much for watching. And I'll see you next sector. 10. Electric Strokes Logo Reveal : Add Animated Sparks: hang guys in this lecture will be proceeding with our electric Strokes logo animation project and this by adding some any meetings parks here. So first thing I'm going to do is that I'm going to click on the pentacle on the Tools Bar here. Make sure you are on selecting all your layers on the timeline. Please note that I am setting the Phil here to none the stroke to salt color. And I said, It's clear toe white on the stroke with 25 pixels, and now I'll draw a straight line on my composition like this. Now I'll pre compose this shape layer so selected on hit control or command shift see, and our colds parks. Now I'll double click on it toe open it. Then I will open up this shape layer quick on this at button here and add Trump. Open up, Trooper. I'll set the N value here to zero My time indicator. Is that a beginning on my timeline? I'll click on the stopwatch beside both started and then drag my time indicator to seven frames. Then I'll change the start Value 200 then Goto about 20 frames and changed the n Value 200 . Now select all key frames and add Easy East by other heading F nine on keyboard or right click key from assistant Eazy E's. Now let's click on the ramp review and see what we have. Well, this looks too slow for me. So all select all those key frames, hold down bulky and squeezed them to left like this. Also, I will open up shape one here, then stroke one, and here will change the line cap to run, and I will also move its anchor point to the end of the line using move Anchor Point panel . If you don't have the move Anchor point panel. No problem. You can always use the Pam behind tool. Now this looks so good to me. Now I'll create six more copies off this shape layer so selected and hit control or command Z six times on keyboard, then also length a mall and hit are on keyboard. To get the rotation control, I'll set this one toe 45 this 1 to 90 then this 1 to 113 and this 1 to 183 and this 1 to 245 and the last one year to 306. No own drag each layer to change its timing. I'm doing it randomly. So in order not to start and end all of this same time now let's click on the ramp review and see what we have so far. Perfect. Now I'll go back to the main composition here, and let's end these sparks randomly on our composition. First, all skill it down a bit so it won't look too pink and and just its position toe where you want it to be and now will create copies of it. And this by selecting this poor XP composition layer here and hit control or command Z on keyboard, I'll create five more copies, for instance. Then I'll distribute them randomly. Year my composition. You can also change the timing off each by dragging H layer. I'll distribute them randomly. Year my composition like this. You can also change the timing of each spork by dragging each layer. Here person. No, let's click on the ramp review and see what we have. Great. Now this looks so good to me. You can always add more copies if you want to now. We are ready. Toe. Add a logo review effect here. And this is exactly what we're going to do next. Lecture. Thank you so much for watching. I'm looking forward to seeing you next lecture. 11. Electric Strokes Logo Reveal : Create Logo Reveal & Finalize Your Project: Hey, guys, welcome back in this lecture will be proceeding with the last part off our electric Strokes logo animation project and this by adding a logo review here. So first thing I'll make a copy off this logo pre composition and this by selecting it on hearing control or command the on keyword. Then I'll rename it to local review. So had to eternal keyboard type and local review. Ethan hit Return again, and now I'll drag to the top of my timeline Stack here and then the Effect Settings panel. I'll delete all the effects or this layer, so select all the effects here and hit. Delete now. Also let this layer and have tea on keyboard to get the A positive control during the time indicator to four seconds, said the opacity value to zero Quick on the stopwatch beside Opas. See, then go to five seconds and send the opus devalue 200% Now. Also, look both key frames and add Eazy E's by either hitting F noise on keyboard or right click key frame assistant Easy's Now. As you can see here, our logo will be revealed like this Now also let this layer and hit control or command the on keyboard to double cable, and I'll drag it a bit to the left. Then, in the Effects settings panel on Sunday wets to seven the hardness toe one. Also, I'll delete the glow effect and changed the clearer toe look different now. All had control or command shift D to split the layer or go to edit in the menu bar and select split player. Now I'll delete this layer at the bottom. Then I'll go forward a bit and again. Hit control or command shift deed. Split the layer or go to edit in the menu bar and select split player. And one more time again, I'll go forward than had control or command shift d displayed the layer again. Then I'll go forward a bit and again. Hit control or command shift deed split the layer and now also let the rest of the layer and hit delete. So now I'll distribute these three layers randomly across my timeline, and I will change the color off this one. And this one is well and this to make a look more antivenom. Now let's quick on the ramp review and see what we have great. So far, so good. Now I need to make all this electric strokes toe faith out. Once the logo starts reviewing in Saul, select all those local airs except this local layer at the bottom and had tea on keyboard to get the opacity control. I'll drive my time indicator to four seconds and four friends quick on the stopwatch beside opacity, then go to four seconds and 18 frames and said the opacity value to you now also looked those to local layers at the butter and hit See on keyboard together the opacity control. I'll drag my time indicator to five seconds on nine frames, quick on the stopwatch beside opacity, then go to six seconds and two friends, then Cynthia Pastie. Value to zero. Now also looked all those key frames and add easy. Great. Now let's quick come direct preview and see what we have first. Now I'm going to create a zoo out animation, so I'll go to layer in the menu bar new and select. No, I'll rename it to zoom out so selected, then hit return on keyboard type and zoom out than her tritter and again now also looked this no object and hit us on came word to get this kid control. My time indicator is at the beginning of my timeline, quick on the stopwatch besides kill, then go to seven seconds and send the skill value to 17. So left both key frames and add Eazy e's. Then I'll go to the graph editor and this Pete grab editor on Drive this point here like this. Now back to my layers and I'll select all my layers here and in the parent Cole, I'll choose my zoom out player. So here I have parented all my layers to the zoom out player, and this means that any animation applied on this Zuma player also be applied on the child layers. Now let's click on human Preview and see what we have person. So now we know how to create this nice electric strokes logo animation. You can also add any bank round of your choice. In the next lecture will be starting another new and interesting logo animation project I hope you are enjoying so far. Thank you so much for watching and L for you next doctor 12. Glitch Logo Animation : Add Your Logo & Create Glitch Effect: Hey, guys will come back this lecture. We will start creating together this glitch logo animation. So let's get start First thing off it control or command and on keyboard to create a new composition. Let's look OK now. I'll import my local here. So double click on the project panel here and import the local The Dragon drop Put my timeline and now I'm going toe any mate both the skill on opacity. So select the layer and hit us, then shifty on keyboard. To get both the scale and opacity controls, I'll drag my time indicator toe one second click on the stopwatch besides kill, then go toe 15 friends. They're quick on. The stop was beside opacity. Then drag my time indicator to five frames, set the opacity value to zero, then go to the beginning of my timeline and set this kill value to around 416%. Now also looked old key frames and add Eazy E's by either hitting F nine on keyboard or right click key frame assistant. Easy, easy. Then I'll select this kill key frames. Go to the graph editor and in the speed graph, drag this point inwards first. Now let's quick on the right preview and see how that will play. Great looks so good to me. Now I'll pre composed this logo layer so selected and hit shift command See on keyboard, make sure to select. Move all attributes option. I'll call it logo, then it. Okay, now we're going to create the glitch effect. So first thing, I'll create a new solid by hitting control or command while keyboard I'll cold Butch. Think like OK, also all pre composed this layer by hearing control or command ship CEO keyword. Make sure select Movil attributes option. I'll call it good Shcomp. Think like OK, now open up this glitch Come by, double clicking on it, then go to the effects and presets panel and search for an effect. Cold fractal noise dragon. Drop it onto the layer. And now let's change some settings Here. I'll said the noise type to block in order to get some blocky look. As you can see, I'll change the contrast to 200 said the brightness to negative 20. Then I'll open up transform here, and I'll uncheck this uniform killing option. I'll change this scale with to 4000 also increase the scale height to 750. Great. Now I'm going toe. Add a script to this evolution field. So hold down all key on keyboard and quick on the stopwatch beside the evolution field. Then in the text field here, type in time multiplied by 3000. So if we played now, you would see this glitch looking animation. Great. Now back to our main composition here. And what I want to do now is that I want to apply this glitch effect on our logo here. So first thing I'll hide this, which come by clicking on the I. I couldn't hear beside it because we actually don't need to see it. And now I'll create a new adjustment layer. So right click here new and select adjustment layer. I'll drag it above the local layer. Here, I'll called Gooch Effect so selected hit return on keyboard type and glitch effect, then had to return again. Now I'll go to the Effects and Presets panel and search for an effect called Displacement map applied on the adjustment layer here and in the effects settings window. All set the displacement. My player to glitch Kump. I'll also Sepp the Max horizontal displacement to 173 and the maximum vertical to 96. Now, if we click on the ramp review, you would see that it has applied the glitch effect on or Lugou. And it is animating all the weight. But this is actually not what we want. So go to around 23 frames. Select the adjustment layer and hit control or command shouldn t displayed it or go to add it in the menu bar and select split player. Then I'll go five frames forward by pressing beach down five times. Then again, hit control or command ship, the to split it. And now I'll delete both the bottom and top adjustment players and leave the one in the middle. Great. Now I'll create tumor copies off this glitch effect and spread it at different times. Here. Fall selected and hit control or command Z on keyboard two times, and now I'll go to one second and seven frames. Select this glitch effect layer and hit open bracket on keyboard to move its in point to the time in the cater. Then I'll go to two seconds and six frames select this last glitch effect player and hit open record to move its in point to the time indicator. Now let's click on the ramp review and see what we have so far. Great. So far, so good. Now I need to change the settings off each glitch effect in order to make them look different and look more dynamic. It's all select this one, and in the Effect Settings panel, I'll set the maximum horizontal to negative 131 and the maximum vertical all started to around 12. Now I'll go to this last one year and in the Effects settings panel, I'll sup the maximum horizontal to negative 80 and set the maximum vertical toe about 38. You are free to set whatever values you want. This is according to preference. Now, if we played again, you would see that it looks much better. Perfect. So far, so good. Now we need to add some distortion toe are look here, so let's create another adjustment layer. So right quick here, new and select adjustment layer. I'll drag it down here and I'll call it old TV signals so selected and hit return on keyboard type and old TV signals, then hits return again. Now let's go to effect some precept panel and search for, in effect, cold, bad TV too old drag and drop it on the adjustment player here and in the Effect Settings window, I'll set both height and wet to to. So as he can see year, it has created this nice old TV effect. Now let's click on the ramp review and see what we have. This looks so good to me, and the next lecture will be creating an RGB split effect I hope you're enjoying so far. If you do have any questions, please feel free to ask. I'm always here to help. Thank you so much for watching and I'll see you next tucked. 13. Glitch Logo Animation: Create an RGB Split Effect: Hey, guys, in this lecture will be proceeding with our glitch, Lugou Animation. So first thing year old do is that I'll create a duplicate of our local layer here and this by selecting it and hearing control or command the on keyboard and now also like the bottom layer here hit, return on keyboard, rename it toe loop race. Then it returned again. Now I'll go to the effects and presets panel on search warrant. If a cold cc cross blur dragon, drop it on the local raise layer year and in the Effect settings panel all sudden radius X to 138 and I'll step radius. Why 2 56 also all set the transfer mood here to scream. And now, as he conceived you, we have added some rays toe our local Here you are free to set any values you want. This is according to preference. Now I'm going to decrease the opacity off this layer a bit because my local year looks too bright. It's all selected and hit t on key. Boring and drag. You passed a volley of it. Now this looks good to me. So here I have this nice logo raised effect? No, we are ready to create an R G V split effect. It's also left the low Blair create tumor copies of it, so had control or command Z twice a keyboard. I'll rename this bottom local layer to local green, rename this one toe local blue and renamed this last one to local red. Now I'll go to the effects and Presets panel and search for an effect. Cold fill. I'll drag and drop it on each of these local layers. Now in the effect settings panel off the green one. I'll change the color to pure green. They don't go to the blue one and change the color to pure blue on last, go to the red one and changed color to pure rent. Wink. Now come here in the mood column. Select those three layers and sent the blending wound here to scream. So as you concede, you're all logo has turned to white color as it walls before. If you can't see the blending mood column, head a four on keyboard or used this Tunggal switches mood button here. Now. If we moved the local red layer up it, you would see the RGB split effect. Great. So let's any me the position office, a red layer so controlled the toe undo, and now I'll drag my time indicator toe one frame just before the in point off this glitch effect layer. So let the layer and hit P on a keyboard to get the position control quick on the stopwatch beside position, then go to the middle of the layer, then change the position values of it and now go to the end off this layer, then copy this first key frame by selecting it and hitting control or command. See on keyboard, then had control or command veto. Paste it here and now. Also liked all those key frames and add Easy is by either hitting F nine on keyword or right click key frame assistant in the East. Now I'll copy them by hearing control or command. See? Then go one frame just before the start off this second glitch layer and hit control or command veto pace the copied key friends, and now I'll do the same thing for the last glitch layer here. Now let's click on the ramp review and see what we have so far great. This looks so good to me. Now we are ready to move to the next lecture in which we are going toe ad and any weight our text. Also we're going toe and a bang ground and finalize our project. I hope you're enjoying so far. Thank you so much for watching. I'm looking forward to seeing you in extractor. 14. Glitch Logo Animation : Add Your Text, Background & Finalize Project: Hey guys, in this lecture, we are proceeding with the final part of our glitch logo animation. So first thing I'll do here is that I'm going to add a background. So had control or command. Why own keyboard to create a solid player? I'll call it background. I'll choose a dark color like this. Think like OK, and as you can see here are background became noisy since it's been affected by our goods on old TV signals. Adjustment players here. So here I don't want these edges toe appear when it starts to Butch. It's also let the layer and hit us a keyboard to get this deal control and scale it up to something very big. Say 537%. So, as you can see here, those edges are gone on. It looks so much better now I'm going toe and our text. So select the text tool from the toolbar. You can adjust the fun type size of color from the character panel according to a purpose. Now, quick on my composition and start typing my text. Ah, position it here and align it horizontally to the center using the align path. Make sure your text layer is positioned on the top over your timeline stack, in case you don't want to apply the glitch and noisy effect on it. And now I'm going toe. Any made my text, so I'll drag my time indicator to around two seconds and 19 frames, and this is where I want my animation to start. Go to the effects and precepts panel on search for, in effect, cold, random, fatal dragon. Drop it on our text player Once applied it will anime like this now select the layer and hit you on keyboard to get all my key frames, So let them both on. Add Easy East by either hitting F nine on keyboard or right click key frame assistant. Easy also owls who is the key frames of it. So hold down all key and drag this key frame like this. Now let's quit. Come the round preview and see what we have so far. Perfect. Now last thing here is that I'm going toe add a vintage layer and this to give us a nice look at our background here. So had control or command. Why on keyword to create a new followed I'll called vintage. Make sure to make a black think like OK, I'll drank it to the top of my timeline. Stack aan den. I'll go to the tools our year. Select the Al Apps tool. Make sure you are selecting the vantage layer and now double click on this Arabs tool to apply mass in the blending mood. Beside the mask change. Add to subtract and now hit um, on Kim board to get the mask properties. I'll set the mask feather toe around 1000 an increase of the mass expansion to maybe 206. So now if I disabled this vantage layer than re enable it, you would see the difference. Now let's click on the ramp review and see what we have. Great. Now this looks perfect to me. So now we know how we can create a nice glitch logo animation. In the next lecture, we will be starting a new project together. I hope you're enjoying so far and adding something new to our knowledge. Thank you so much for watching. I'm looking forward to seeing you in extractor 15. Liquid Logo Reveal : Add & Animate Your Logo: Hey guys, welcome back in this lecture. I'm going to show you how we can create this nice and wonderful liquid Local reveal animation and after effects. So let's get start. First thing I'll had control or command and keyboard to create a new composition. I'll call it Liquid. Lugou Review. Feel free to choose your own settings here, then click. OK, and now I'll never could here on my project panel to import my logo. I'll drag and drop it on my timeline here. First step is to adjust the size of the logo so selected and hit us on keyboard to get this kill control and then just the size according to her need. Now. Also let the local layer and hit control or command shift see Toby Composite I'll cook Logo review. It's very important here to make sure you select this roof. All attributes option Choosing this option will move. Also, let good layers any effects and transformations applied on them into the new composition. Now click OK and now had control or command Why? To create a followed layer. I'll call it liquid. Make it any color you want, Then click OK, so as you can see here. This layer is school size of our project, but we need to make it smaller yet covering our local here. It's all selected and hit us, then shift T on keyboard to get both the scale and opacity controls. Drag the opacity down a bit so I could see the logo below. Now drag down the skill toe, a value that would cover our entire local years. Great. Now get the opacity back 200%. Now I'll go to the effects on pieces panel and search for, in effect hog linear wipe dragon. Drop it on liquid layer. Here, deline, you're wipe Effect performs a simple linear wipe off a layer and the specified direction. So a year in the effects settings panel. If we played around with the transition completion control, you would see that it is moving from side to side. Yet in our project year, we needed to move from bottom to top. So I'll change the angle value year, which is the direction that the white troubles I'll send it to you. Now I'll drag my time indicator to 15 friends quick on the stopwatch beside the transition completion. Now drag the time indicator 23 seconds, then said the transition completion value to view. And now if you play this, you would see that our enemies should look like this. Great. Now let's make it. We were attractive. So, like this layer, then hit you on keyboard to get the key frames. Now select both key frames and add Eazy E's by hitting F Knowing on keyboard or simply right click key frame assistant ZTE's. Then go to the graph editor here. If your grass doesn't cook like this right, click here and select it. Steve Graphs. Now I also love the end key frame and change the curve to something like this and this so it can start off quickly, then slow down as grooves to the end. Now back to our timeline on Let's Go to the Effects of Precepts panel and search for an effect cold, turbulent, this place dragon. Drop it on our liquid layer. And now if I drag my time indicator, you would see this liquid type of animation. And this because the turbulent displace effect uses fractal noise to create turbulent distortions and the layer applied to person. So now let's up just a few settings here. I'll set the amount value 200 higher amount values calls more this portion. I'll also set the size to 70. Now play to Gurn and see if you're happy with the results. So as you can see here, this has made more of a liquid type. You can play around with the settings till you reach the results that you admire. This is according to curtains. Okay, so this looks good to me. And now I'll go to the track. Mac, calm here. Beside this local review layer, if you can see the track matte calm here, simply hit F four keyboard or used this toggles which is born here. Now open up the track back option here and change it toe Alfa inverted map. And if we play now, you would see that our logo is any meeting just like or liquid layer. Great. So far, so good. Now we are done with the first part of this project In the next lecture will be creating more double cuts off these two layers and apply some changes in order to make it more attractive. Thank you so much for watching and LCU next structure 16. Liquid Logo Reveal : Make Your Logo Reveal More Attractive!: Hey, guys, In this lecture, we are proceeding with our liquid local reveal animation and after effects. So first thing I'm going to do here is that l select these two layers and had control or command V on keyboard to do book it Now drag my time indicator the beginning of my timeline and hit change town six times of keyboard. Then select these two layers and hit open record toe. Move them to the time indicator. If you point this, you won't see any difference. And this because this layer is behind our locally. So now I'll go to the effects of presets panel and search for an effect called Phil Dragon . Drop it on the local layer here then in the effects settings panel quick on this color swatch and change its color Choose the color you want. This is according to persons. I'm choosing a light purple to match my logo colors here. Okay, so now we have this light purple liquid effect now also like this layer and hit return on keyboard and let's rename it to logo Lied purple then hit return again. So this is our animation so far, let's make it more attractive. It's all make another duplicate off these two layers by selecting them and hidden control or command the on keyboard. And now I will select this local layer. Go to the Effects Settings panel, then click on this color swatch here and let's change the color all truth. A dark purple color.
