Update 3 (May 7):
Worked on making it more lively (especially the eye). Also, upon viewing other animated logos, I realized I needed to set mine to music:
Comments/Critiques still appreciated :)
Update 2 (April 29):
First .gif round!
I'm really happy with the opening, but I'm unsure about the introduction of the stylus & scapel at the end. Wondering if the timing is off or if I should try another movement.
Critiques & comments appreciated!
Update 1 (April 25):
I've really liked seeing people's storyboards and thought process so I wanted to update my project with them.
My logo is based off a nickname "Melbot" and that I'm a medical artist.
By writing the storyboards backwards, it took a lot of pressure off and was easy to do, but for writing, I'll write them sequentially.
Any thoughts or critiques are appreciated!
I'm running into a problem with an animated gear.
I made the gear in Illustrator (all one layer; the inside holes are transparent), imported to AE and applied rotation keys ( 0x0 to 1x0). Parallax is happening in the rotation. How would you solve this problem?
I thought about making the inside holes their own layer and making their rotation opposite of the gear, but it doesn't play nice when you shrink/grow the keyframes.
Sadly, my project won't be finished for tonight but I thought this might be a common question for the Q&A portion
