I used the theory learned in lesson 3 to make timings more dynamic.


Hi guys,

So for my project I decided to animate some flat design icons that I created in a previous class I took with Dominik Flask. Here are the icons:

Having never touched After Effects before in my life, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. For my first icon, I ended up going back and forth between the illustration in Illustrator and After Effects to change things and create "layer masks" because I couldn't make my animation work the way I wanted to. 

So here's my first gif ever. So far I've watched Lesson 1 & 2. I can't wait to dive into timing because I really feel everything is mechanical and a bit boring so far. 

Let me know what you guys think :)
