In this After Effects tutorial we'll learn a variety of techniques to create appealing logo animations. Taking a logo or image and animating it is a common task. We'll begin the tutorial by importing a logo built in illustrator and organize our layers into compositions. We'll then learn some animation techniques to take what would be boring motion and give it some life. We'll then learn how to accurately gauge perspective and how to place the anchor point. Throughout the project we will create animation presets that will save us time on repetitive tasks. We'll learn techniques to reveal and grow elements from simple mask expansions to complex path strokes and mask animation. Software required: After Effects CS4 for project files.
