Digital – Tutors – Animating a Logo with Particles in After Effects | 1.67 GB
What you will learn
In this series of After Effects tutorials, we will learn how to animate a logo using particles and animated videos to reveal and enhance the logo presentation.
We will learn how to manipulate a video using effects and the simple transformation properties to cause it to perfectly fit on top of an element we would like to reveal. After changing it’s track matte, we see how quickly you can use the effect in multiple ways. Then, we move on to creating particles.
We use a few different particle systems throughout this tutorial depending on what we need the particles to be capable of doing. Some systems are easier to use than others, while some offer more customizable options.
No matter what though, all of the particles we use in this tutorial come with After Effects, so no need to worry about expensive plug-ins. By the end of this training, you will have a mastery of using luma and alpha mattes as well as how to manipulate a particle system to create many different looks.
