About This Class

In this class I want to show you a quick and effective workflow allowing you to make an amazing looking liquidy-displaced text animation. You could compare it to a paint bucket which would be spilled over text with random colors and made it complete. This animation can be great for any kind of youtube video, text animation, logo intro and more! During the class you will learn essential After Effects techniques as well as advanced tricks on how to top-up and make any animation a little more interesting. You will work with Track Mattes, Outlining, Shape Layers, the Pen Tool, Effects, Keyframes...so it's action-packed material!

The class doesn't require any prior knowledge and will let you dive straight into motion graphic design and teach you valuable skills and keyboard shortcuts along the way!

Some of the amazing fun stuff we will touch on:

  • On-Trend design animations
  • Working with shape layers
  • After Effects keyboard shortcuts
  • Using keyframes for animation build-ups.
  • Working with several effects on our layers and compositions
  • How to utilize precomposing for design, grouping and sorting
  • ...and many many more!

I'm ready if you are - let's dive intro Adobe After Effects and start the work...Enroll now!

Great tutorial!

A very informative and easy to follow class. I especially like that Andrzej breaks up the technique in manageable chunks but at the same time remembers to "zoom out" to remind us where we are heading. I will definitely keep using the technique in the future as it adds an interesting and more human touch to the text reveal and is a necessary tool in every motion designer's toolbox. Not to mention it inspires to use the head and come up with one's own solutions on how to bring a more human touch to the perfect world of vector artwork being animated.
