1. Introduction: welcome in the spot on excellent graphics, and after in today's tutorial, we'll create around the animation like that. If you would like to know how to do this and after effects and have some fun completing this project, please enroll in the class and let's start free. 2. TUTORIAL 1: Hello and welcome in the third part off the Exxon graphics and aftereffect. Serious? Let's kick things off with a cool tape. So if you select it already a color scheme, a color scheme you want to use for the Exxon graphics, I'll show you a nice trick. Let me take a screenshot, either Press print screen. I'll go to pain and I'll paste the screen. Now I will select just apart. I want the colors to be visible on and I'll crop it. You can do this in any software. For example. I have also an extension for chrome called Nimbus Screenshot, and it's really useful because I don't simply press here press selected area and I can save a file straight away from here. But we don't need that. Let's say you have pained. You've selected the colors, you've saved the file it, and you are ready to use this file insight aftereffect. I have arrived an after effect and let me create a new composition here, so I'll call this composition part tree. I'll rename that later. Part three Full HD size 30 frames and two seconds off duration should be okay now, once you are not or effect. You can import the colors the color file you had, and you can place it in the composition. Let me quickly press are to rotate it 90 degrees. I'll place it here, and you can right click and select this layer to be simply a guide layer. A guide layer is something that will be only visible within this composition. Once you already with our color scheme, let's start a fund. I'll click here, layer new and create a new solid as always. I'll call it DG, which is the shortcut for background, and I'll select my pick Web and select these gray color because I believe this should be my background, the darkest color off the mall. And let's create accent follow on your rectangle tool ended. This time, let's work with and lips. I'll select the Ellipse, and I'll try to make this ellipse in the middle. Let's do it like that somewhere around the middle and this time will select Phil not stroke . If you have stroke selected, simply click on it, click on the stroke and select none. And let me, for example, immediately select a core. I see this red color is really nice. So let's, like direct one and press OK, all right. We have that red color selected. Now we have the stray player and you need to go into the Ellipse. Then you need to open the Transform Ellipse, and here we want to adjust the position. You can see the position is somewhere between crazy and ridiculous. So let's go to zero zero. And now I don't have to war. It's perfectly in the middle. Okay, the first step is done. Now let's animate this thing. We can, for example, selected transform Ellipse options we already have, or we can go to the Ellipse Pat. Please select the Alex path because this will be safer and we'll work both with the size and with the position. So I'll select a stopwatch here and the stopwatch. Here you can see two key frames appeared. Now I'll go forward. Let's say 15 frames or 20 frames, depending on how quick you want the animation to be, and we'll work with the position. Now I own the position toe and somewhere around here on the top side, so it will be negative for 50. Let's make it like that. Then I want to have some fun with the size. So at the enter size should be bigger. Maybe 1 20 And at the beginning, this circle should be invisible. So we have. Ah, nice motion like that. Now the motion is a bit slow of it boring and nothing happens here. What can you do to adjust this ending off this? Because it can't stay like that Now there are several ways of doing this. We will this time use the opacity and that's super super simple. So we can go to the Phil and here we have opacity. We also have opacity here, and it doesn't really matter which one you will use. I'll use this one this from the Phil. So I will enter the Phil and I will select opacity. I looked like on the stopwatch. I will go forward here. I'll click again on a key frame and here this should be invisible. So let's select the opacity to 0%. Now let's preview. What do we have? Boom! The circle flies and the circle makes itself invisible in this point. And this looks really, really cool. The last thing I want to adjust here is to select all key frames. Right? Click on the key frame assistant and easy Eastham. Now, once I selected them to be easy East, I'll select my graph. Editor. I want a gun. Select the last key frames I have. We can check. Yes, these are the last key friends and I'll make the last key frames quicker. Do it the same. So your emotion will be a lot nicer. You know what? I don't quite like the background. So I will create another solid layer. Right click. New solid. I'll hit my pick Whip And I was like this blue color. Now I can decide which background I like the most. So I'll be blue. Let's like the last one BG Gray and we can preview the animation and look which color works better off course. Let me also de select the title action Safe, The gray, the blue The greater well At this point, I like the blue More off course. If you have a different color scheme, that's no problem. It's off course your choice. But I will stick with the blue for now until we finalize this animation. Let us go to the second tutorial. Now where you finish things up 3. TUTORIAL 2: welcome in tutorial number two to the next fund part here. So we have our shape layer and we have this super advanced animation boom, and it simply fates off. If you need to check if everything is OK press you to see the key frames. Now I believe everything is okay and I'll open my shape Layer, please, at the repeater because we always need the repeater for such kind of things. Open the repeater and make about 12 copies. Now, I hope you remember what we did previously to make the animation be properly set. We will do the same. We'll open the transform repeater options. We will set the position to zero, and we will have fun with the rotation. Hit your left older option key click on rotation and select 3 60 Divided by the number of copies. Select copies Press somewhere on the screen and this is the first initial animation we have . Boom. Please close everything down because we want to know duplicated and make some use of it. If this is your first animation boom threat circles, let me rename this. You can click, enter and rename it and I'll press control or comment D to duplicate now I want it to be set forward. Offset about four frames. Four frames here. Duplicate eight frames here. Duplicate 12 frames here. Now let's preview if this animation looks okay, and what do we need to change to make it better? Well, the initial animation is okay, but to make it a bit more interesting, press on the 2nd 1 and press R on your keyboard. Now you can select how strong of a rotation you would like to give it. I'll give it 30 degrees. Will this help? Okay, you see, it's a bit rotated. If you don't like it, you can, for example, go to 15 frames. Now this looks better because they are in between the circles. Now let's go to the next one, and it automatically lines because the 1st 1 the 2nd 1 is rotated by 15 degrees. Another turned once again zero and the 4th 1 Let's rotate it again, 15 degrees. Now we have some kind of different motion here. I could say that this is enough, but I'll duplicate it. Let me know. Select the second caller and see if the color works together with that Phil pick whip and the next caller we have now I can decide if I want. Those colors to be together are separate. Well, I definitely want them together because they look really cool. So let me place it here and here, between them and between them. Now let's preview are finalized results, so they are set to often. Those four key frames are optimal, so let's go eight, 12 16 and 20. Okay, the last one is also read. Let's preview the animation boom, and this is the circle accent I wanted to teach you in this part off accent, graphics and after effects. Let's preview it, and I can decide which one is better. If you, for example, like the creamy one better creamy, Let's go it creamy. Let's duplicate creamy and put it here. Now I'll pre compose everything. I'll pre compose the circles I have right click pre composed, and I'll call it Read cream. My red creamy composition is ready. I can present V on my keyboard to make it smaller. Let's make it smaller like that. Oh, sorry. Also, the backgrounds were selected. Backgrounds should be locked, backgrounds should be locked, creamy should be here Okay, we have the pre composition. Every composition can be said here and we have one preferred animation. Now we have creamy and I can do this same with creamy 10 frames. Tim frames were too long. Let's make it four frames again. Or maybe six. Frame 6 12 duplicate 18. And we have a totally different animation. Now I can again select the four I've created. I can right click pre composed and I can call them creamy. Then I will hit s like the scale and I make it smaller like that. So on the left side, we'll have creamy on the right side. We'll have ready. Well, how nice. And we have those two different animations in terms of coloristic made in a matter of minutes. For this part of the spot on accent graphics, I really hope you will do the same animation by yourself. And I want to see your results. So have fun doing so this was part tree off the spot on Exxon graphics in after effects. If you are curious, I had also the second part like that and the first part where we made accent like this. So thanks again and see you in the next one 4. Your project and congratulations: let me show you the simplest way you can submit your ready product once you have the animation completed, for example, like in the first part, and you have the composition here. Ready you go to composition at to render queue. Once you are in the render queue, just select an a movie fight. For example, Quick time the information coded It's OK, Select OK and select where the file should be saved. Won't you render the file? Then you can import the file into Photoshopped. Simply go to file, say for Web. You can lower the size here and said the looping options to forever You have here some basic options. Just make sure that gift is fairly small. I'll go for 600 pixels because this is a amount that I know. The TRO graces well and then just clicking forever and saving the file. This ready gift file can be uploaded to skills her as a product file. I will really appreciate if you will go to your project and start the product. Simply upload a cover image and upload the gift you created. You can write a name here and you're ready to go. Just hit create. If you did like the class, please leave me a trump up. It's really simple. You just take here and select leave a review. Perhaps it also popped up here on the top. I will be really thankful if you could do this because positive reviews really motivate me to create more content for you. Thank you very much for participating in this part of the spot on Exxon Graphics in after effects. I hope else you in the next part See you then.
