Motion Graphics: Basic Training

An introduction to Adobe After Effects

Motion graphics is highly in demand today in the design industry as well as the film industry. Motion graphics can help you with a variety of projects including explainer videos, product UI/UX animations, product promos, advertisements and so much more.

I've tried to encapsulate the basics of Adobe Illustrator, Adobe After Effects and a workflow for a sample project to help you understand how you can easily add motion graphics to your projects. This series has over 2 hours of training which are provided with project source-files and is absolutely FREE!

 

So, let's jump right in and get started.

The first part in the series focuses on the basics of Adobe Illustrator. We go through the workspace basics, tools, building shapes and some important shortcuts.

The second part in the series focuses on the basics of Adobe After Effects. We go through the workspace basics, tools and animating objects.

The third part in the series focuses on building a scene inside Adobe Illustrator. We try to use different tools to create simple shapes to help you understand how the software works.

The fourth part in the series focuses on building a badge inside Adobe Illustrator. We try to use different tools to create a simple badge to help you understand how the software works.

The fifth part in the series focuses on animating the scene we built in Tutorial 3 in Adobe After Effects. We go through different animation parameters like position, scale, rotation, and opacity to bring our scene to life.
