Futuristic HUD Animations in After Effects


While many After Effects users get intimidated by the "Iron Man" style futuristic HUD animations, I'm here to tell you it's nothing to be afraid of! This effect is something anyone can do with very little After Effects experience!

So join me in this course to dissect an animation that looks super complicated and making it super simple!

In this class we will learn and experiment with:

  • Animating with shape layers
  • Virtual camera animations
  • After Effects expressions for continuous animations

This is an introductory course and I will be explaining everything step by step. However you may need to have some After Effects knowledge to understand basic functionality and layout of the software.




Create and animate your own HUD animation. It could look very similar to my final product but feel free to experiment with new shapes, objects, and layouts of your graphic.

Then upload your final animation! A finished project could either be a looping gif, or a video clip of your animation. If you choose to use a video you can post a link from a website like youtube or vimeo. Just make sure you loop it a couple times so it's easier to re-watch.
